ARIES (March 21-April 19). One thing that appeals to you now is to live more simply. It’s not only about reducing your possessions. It’s about reducing your wants. Plain living leads to higher thinking. A calm, organized life is a blank slate for your creativity. Now, if you can only get the rest of your crew on board.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your world concept has changed drastically since you were a child, and that process isn’t going to stop. You may be stubborn at times, but you’ll still test out your beliefs periodically to make sure they still hold water. This week, you’ll poke a few holes and watch formerly dearly held beliefs sink straight to the bottom.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can treat others with kindness and still have clear, strong personal boundaries. In fact, it’s those very boundaries that allow you to be openhearted. You’re not afraid of being taken advantage of because you know how to defend yourself. If you’ve any doubt about that, events will prove the point once more.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). As for those who wonder how you can influence others from a distance, they will have to go on wondering. Though your process will remain undetectable (even you won’t know how exactly you are able to be so persuasive), the results will be undeniable. You will, quite simply, get what you need.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As much as you like to be a part of something, you don’t want to be controlled by it. You’ll walk a fine line, joining the “group think” at times and then ducking out to make sure your individuality is intact. The art of detachment helps in this. Part of you is always the witness, hanging back, vigilant for cues. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ve watched enough movies to know that heroes don’t rejoice when the villain is hanging off the cliff. In fact, often times the hero will offer a savior’s hand. What happens next is that the villain tries to kill the hero yet again. Lesson: When the enemy is down, don’t celebrate. But don’t rush to pick him up, either. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ve an excellent sense of good, better and best. When you hit “best,” hold on and never let go. Until then, don’t commit! Choose freedom. When the premium opportunity comes along, you need to be able to move quickly. You’ll get a whiff of it this week, and you’ll spend another three weeks chasing it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Goodness has many forms. Sometimes it comes in the form of a sage, a saint, a loving energy or a righteous succession; and sometimes it shows up in the form of a sinner, a destructive force or a wrongheaded action. Something wonderful will blossom from your acceptance of goodness even in its evil forms.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve been accused of being that friendly, outgoing kind of person who “never met a stranger,” and you’ll fit the type this week as you strike up more than one fortuitous conversation. Things will go from casual to profoundly meaningful in a blink. You’ll amaze your shy friends!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Being attached to a certain outcome can push away any chance of manifesting it if the energy of your attachment is anxious, stressful and repellent. That’s why when you want something, it’s important to want it with love and warmth. Feed your craving with every attractive thought you can imagine.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Are you more afraid of success or failure? Either way the thing to do is soldier on. Being tired is not a good enough reason to stop. Push through. It will energize you to keep going. You’ll hit your second wind and then your third before you even get a glimpse of the goal line.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The way to peace is in not finding fault with others. The hard truth is that most people think they want peace, but unless they are willing to give up faultfinding, they don’t really want it after all. Where do you fall in all of this? Do you seek power or peace? Oddly, in an environment of peace you’ll have more control.
