ARIES (March 21-April 19). “I can do it on my own” is becoming more of a rule than a statement for you these days. Sure, it’s true. You can do it on your own. But why would you want to when there are so many around you who want to help and will make your life much more joyous when you give up the rule and let them?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In the thick of a learning process, self-acceptance is crucial. This is not about making the goal or not making it. Try to embrace a different mindset — one that’s focused on cultivating a certain kind of winning attitude. Nothing is a gain or loss. When you miss, it’s an opportunity for investigation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Social navigation will play a huge part in this week’s accomplishments. Keep your eyes open like someone who is taking notes on human nature. Some of the cliches will prove true; that’s why they are cliches! However, if you think of people strictly as “kinds of people” you won’t understand the particulars.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). What do you know, really? This question will weave its way through your week, offering a theme to the days. Because you’re willing to keep asking, you’re headed toward greater wisdom and insight, the likes of which will liberate you in that area of life that’s long had you stifled.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve had to answer to sketchy authority in the past. Who decides on the important rules that govern your current life? Of course, this job should go to you! Be especially wary of the person who approaches you in the manner of someone who came down from a mountaintop carrying a stone tablet and a torch.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What comes to you will happen because you exude confidence and power. Here’s something you’re learning: It requires a great deal of inner velocity to be totally still. Before you take on busy work and busy people, consider the value of making no move at all, doing nothing but standing in who you are.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In most cases this week, the hesitation and resistance you feel should not be taken as a signal of danger; rather, this is merely a fear to be overcome on your path to mastery. As Shakespeare suggested in “The Tempest,” “Do not, for one repulse, forego the purpose that you resolved to effect.”
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re not needy. You may feel needy from time to time, but most of what you think you need is really just stuff you want. It is powerful to state your preferences. It is weak to state your needs. Instead of self-sufficiency, strive for teamwork in which you utilize people without possessing true need of them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). What you’re doing works, but you can’t help but wonder if it could work even better. Look for other solutions if you must, but don’t waste too much time with this, because the most likely outcome is that you’ll wind up right back where you started, but with a firmer belief in the rightness of this simple plan.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s not always easy to know exactly what you want to express and how best to do that. Sometimes you just have to start talking through it, and keep talking until you figure it out. This week it will be accomplished with an excellent listener and kindred spirit who can help you get to the emotional core of the matter.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The only way to get layers of sophistication is to gather new experiences up by the dozens and keep adding to them daily. Sophistication allows you to come at life from a broader place, have greater emotional control and a less reactionary response, too. Bonus: You will quickly fix what’s been bothering you for ages.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you feel someone trying to get you to do something, your immediate response will be to rebel. You don’t need or want anyone’s control. You have your own ideas. Nor do you want to feel overly influential over another. It’s too much responsibility. Independence will be the hallmark of this week.
