ARIES (March 21-April 19). This week there is something you’ll do once that, for better or worse, will make such an impact that you’ll probably never choose to do it again. You’re smart that way — always moving forward, finding new ways to work it instead of trying to re-create a perfect moment or returning to what hasn’t worked before.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You weren’t born optimistic. It’s a quality you cultivated in yourself. That’s why now, when you slip momentarily into a mood that doesn’t help the situation, you’ve the discipline to try and see the bright side. This week the benefits to your hopefulness will be numerous and far-reaching.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What comforted you 100 times will cease to comfort you on time 101. Luckily, this week will bring a combination of new influences to help you heal the past and deal effectively with the present. A fire sign will be among them, i.e., an Aries, Leo or Sagittarius.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Once upon a time you opened the door to a brand-new horizon, and it felt just like coming home. This will happen again — and soon. It’s a good reason to resist letting the repetition of daily life bore you. Instead, cherish the lull. Get nostalgic for it while it’s happening. Truly, these are the good old days.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). What’s supposed to be fun could turn into a chore; what was set up as a chore could become a favorite release. The key is not to identify too strongly with your pre-conceived notions. You’ve many reasons to create a positive atmosphere around you. The fact that there’s someone you want to impress doesn’t hurt!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There will be a situation where your nerves have the potential to get the best of you. If you have enough time to get ahead of this it will help enormously. Whatever practice and preparation you put in will pay off. In the case where there’s no time to prepare: Breathe and believe. You will rise to the occasion!

    

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you’ve much to         be grateful for about this past year, you may still head into 2016 with a feeling that the worst is behind you. Tuesday is for purging yourself of psychic toxins, perhaps with a good long rant to a friend, or with a confession to your diary. Saturday brings purification on a physical level.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You get that life is a continually changing energy circle, but it’s nice when this constant state of becoming gets a few defined moments. This week’s profound beginnings and meaningful endings will come as a relief. At least it makes the story easier to tell again later.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Children who haven’t learned about the limitations of the physical world often have a magical way of thinking that renders matters of scale irrelevant. What if what seems so big and impossible isn’t really? You’d like to think magically, too, and it will all start with the two most magical of words, “What if … ?”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your mind is racing these days as your natural ambition sparks to the sun’s rays in your part of the sky. No matter how high the goal, it will happen step by step, one action at a time. This is an excellent moment to give greater definition to your wants and needs. Writing it down will bring it to earth.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s not necessary to try too hard, or really even to try at all. Whatever you have to give, it’s more than enough. The ones who don’t accept your gifts graciously are simply unaware of their surroundings, no fault of your own. The tables will turn mid-week and more attention will be paid to you. This is how it should be!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There is a benefit to your position that you don’t currently understand. This week you need to find and use your points of leverage. Talking about your life with objective, intelligent and caring friends will help. Even better, discuss where you’re at with a business-savvy Capricorn or a Cancer with a high Empathy Quotient.
