ARIES (March 21-April 19). Teamwork will be essential. The project at hand needs far more creativity than most involved would have guessed. Don’t try and solve all the problems solo, or the others will back off, leaving you with a heavy load — exhausting! Present the facts and let them draw their own conclusions. Invite input all along the way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Success won’t necessarily make you happy. Happiness, however, is very likely to make you successful — especially if that happiness is obtained and applied in a more or less streamlined fashion. The formula is simple, really: Do what brings you joy. Apply your blissful efforts to a single goal. See it through.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When the tension sets in, the source is pretty easily detected. Probably you’re fighting a natural inclination. There are likely very valid reasons for doing so, but that won’t make it any more comfortable. Your best bet is to take yourself to an environment that supports the highest version of you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It won’t be easy to separate the sincere from the unscrupulous. Protect yourself by following these rules: 1) Let your life reflect reality, not wishful thinking. 2) When you feel a desire is becoming both too intense and too selfish, take yourself out of the situation entirely) 3. Believe in the power of healthy distractions.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It is said that a greedy man always sustains loss. But what about when the things you are greedy for happen to be good for you as well? In feeding your hunger for knowledge, pure love, stark truth, unusual beauty and the vitality that has always been your birthright, the only loss you will sustain is the loss of your sadness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When it comes to relationships, you’ll be heavily influenced by the opinions and actions of outsiders. In the instance where that statement does not ring true, watch out: You’re in love. In that case, the way you feel is purely personal and cannot be swayed by good or poor feedback from anyone else you know. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Besides mastering your own moods, you can shake off the gray and gloom for another person. Now that’s talent. Most of it is powerfully packed in that smile of yours. Mid-week brings new circumstances. Accept them and adjust quickly. Don’t pass blame! When the tide changes it’s nobody’s fault but the moon’s.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). For every 10 times you’ve pulled yourself up by the bootstraps and went on to kick the problem in the head there were two or three times when you really couldn’t have gotten back up without an assist. You’ll provide such an assist for someone else this week and you’ll be glad to get this excellent karma swirling.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This thing that’s stopping you appears to be a major problem, an obstacle that will take weeks or months to chip away at. Then again, it could be just a long string of molecules. Have you thought of it that way yet? And there are other ways to think of it that could bring you freedom as well. Ask a Leo or Cancer.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Yes, there are some interesting changes on the horizon, and yet the big things are actually not as remarkable as they seem. Keep track of the little things. Record the chatter and noise that fills up your life because, in the future, that’s what you’re going to appreciate about this week.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You know what you want, but you haven’t figured out how much it will cost you, and whether you’re willing to pay that price. The only way to find out is to get deeper into the situation. Befriend someone who’s been there. You need a mentor and will not be able to progress without one, so start shopping around for help.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What if you believed that the thing rubbing you the wrong way is also moving you into the fast lane to your desired destiny? Would you handle it better? Insecurities will arise early in the week. As uncomfortable as these may feel, they really are golden opportunities to better yourself.
