ARIES (March 21-April 19). You want to talk, share and connect. Meanwhile, loved ones may be in a more introspective mood. Have patience and they’ll come around, especially after Wednesday morning. Until then, your mindfulness of social signals and boundaries keeps relationships smooth and the holidays merry and bright. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Elementary school children learn to differentiate between fact and opinion, a skill that doesn’t get much easier with the complexities of adulthood. This week brings clarity on the matter, as new information will shed light on an old story. It’s a chance to come up with an empowering new slant to your narrative.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Are you worrying because you’re afraid of a certain outcome or has worrying just become a habit? Most of what you fear will never come to pass. Declare this week a no-worry zone and you will create stellar holiday memories. This week has potential to be some of the sweetest fun you’ve had all year. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Human appetites tend to be informed by scarcity. Try not to fall into the trap of wanting things just because they are hard to come by. Any value determined solely by availability will not hold up in the long run. This week you will be blessed with all you need to make your heart warm and content. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re pretty sure who likes you, and that matters a lot less this week for the simple reason that there are also people around who revere you. Why settle for being merely enjoyed when there are those out there who will cherish you? Actually, you’ll take the enjoyment, too, just for good measure.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). “For the apparel oft pro claims the man,” stated Shakespeare. You’ll find yourself giving more thought to your attire than usual. Your clothing will set a tone for your mood, which is something to consider, because you’ll be visiting with those you haven’t seen in a while and meeting new friends, too.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In the past your ambition has led to success, but now it’s time to take a different tactic. Relax. Assume that what you have is already enough and take stock of that. Enjoying where you are will help you see a few missed opportunities. Happiness and joy will come from maximizing your many blessings.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Those who do everything with the aim of finding happiness will find frustration nstead, as happiness makes for a tricky goal. Don’t worry; you’ll gather up plenty of happiness this week, mostly accidentally. It’s a byproduct of worthwhile pursuits, like the ones intended to put smiles on the faces of your loved ones.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have kindness for all, yet there are but a small number of individuals who have earned a place in your inner circle. These relationships are sacred and will require a special quality of attention this week. Happiness comes from making sure to take care of your nearest and dearest first.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You know that the universe doesn’t revolve around you, though you’ll get much evidence to the contrary as you head into the time of the year you are most popular, adored and generally in demand. This is only the start of your magic time. Be on the lookout for encouraging omens of good things to come.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The demands of the week will be a perfect fit for your natural curiosity and you’ll take great pleasure in investigating new possibilities. Your research (especially reading) will pay off, as will networking efforts. It’s like you’re on a one-man outreach mission, the results of which will help everyone in your group.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll likely feel unsure about your credentials or ability to handle this week’s challenges, but the truth is that it won’t matter, as long as your intention is to contribute, improve things or even just to be there with an open heart and a willingness to help. Don’t doubt that you’re in the right place at the right time.
