ARIES (March 21-April 19). You probably wouldn’t think of it in these terms, but the fact of the matter is that you are engaged in a sort of seduction. Impressing someone favorably is essential if you are to achieve the outcome you desire. The details will make or break this. Be thoughtful, specific and deliberate as you make it seem effortless.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you’re starting to feel like every relationship is dysfunctional to some degree, you may be right. Even high-functioning relationships need maintenance and tuneup work to stay that way. Your efforts in this regard will prevent future misunderstanding and promote unexpected joy this week.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your intelligence is obvious to all as it takes traditional form. When your intellect presents in nontraditional ways (and it will this week!) it will take a special and equally gifted person to recognize and acknowledge the expression of this. Such a person is a rare gem and should be cherished, as he or she will cherish you. 

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Long ago you accidentally hit on the way to charm those who were intimately connected with your well-being and all that could benefit you, and you’re still applying the same principles today. You’re smart to do what you know will work, but don’t be afraid to try new methods and add to your arsenal of irresistible habits. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). For you, love is an open palm, not a clenched fist. If you have to hang on tight to keep something, you wisely wonder if it’s really yours, or if it’s really worth all of the energy it takes to wrangle it. This week supports your easy style. It will be perfect the way people flow into and out of your life, always returning gladly.  

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). This week your excellent sense for drama and story will be employed. In a sense, you will make movies. When you don’t have the requisite tools on hand, or when you’re simply not inclined to their use, you will make these movies with your eyes, enhancing the picture with your imagination, vivid, feral and free.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you knew the things that you were daydreaming about were certain to become reality, how would you direct those visions? Your imagination is powerful this week, but it is also unwieldy. You will be rewarded for all efforts to rein it in and focus it on the thing that will make the most positive difference.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Diplomacy is about knowing what to say, when to say it and how. Even more than that, diplomacy is about knowing what not to say, or, in this week’s case, pay attention to in any way. You’re such a leader now that you’ll draw attention to whatever you take interest in, and draw it away when necessary as well.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Once you cover the basics, life flows logically and constructively from there. Because of this, there’s no need to worry about the work you’re about to do. Show up, on time, with your stellar attitude, and the rest comes naturally. It’s not always this easy, so be sure to take advantage of the cycle. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The people who give you extra attention will be in rare form. Some focus their energy on you because they are jealous, and that dynamic demands your defense. Others pay attention because they like you, and this comes with complications, too. At least you know that others see you as a force to be reckoned with.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Love can and will turn your life in unexpected directions. These unpredictable turns tend to happen as a direct result of adjusting to or following someone who has your heart in his or her hands. You’ll discover talents and capacities you didn’t know you had in the process.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Half the time you don’t know how you’re putting it all together even as you do a genius job of it. This is a week to document your process for posterity. You aim to please and will accomplish that more than a few times by feeding your crew. In fact, you could very well become legendary for one of your recipes.
