ARIES (March 21-April 19). It may seem that life has brought you extra ingredients, but you’ll use it all eventually. Don’t worry about sticking with the recipe. You have skills and big ideas that will come to you once you get working. Midweek brings a surprise that will work in your favor once you accept it and run with the implications.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your stomach will talk to you. So will your muscles. Listen up. Your body knows something you don’t. Honor the wisdom of your physicality by doing what your body wants, even though you don’t fully understand why. You’ll be healthier and more vitally energetic when you eat and move according to internal urges.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Anywhere you see success, celebrate it. You don’t have to be related to a person to reap benefits from his or her success. You’ll get into a better position partly because of a friend’s good fortune. Later you’re the one who will help others from your advantaged position.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Gamblers eventually lose what they have. Serious gamblers lose what they don’t have. Exposure to the type makes you feel risk-averse. This week is about cherishing your many gifts — hanging on to what you have and taking really good care of it, too. Embrace life as a grand maintenance project.  

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The garden is getting too many weeds in it. Admittedly, some weeds are more attractive than what has been intentionally planted, but that’s no excuse. This week it’s important to get back to what belongs and what doesn’t. For results most pleasing, remember, honor and abide by the original plan. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are many instances in which good friendship is so much more valuable than romantic fervor. Still, some will be tempted to put off casual ties in favor of spending time with one who kindles passion. If you’re thoughtful and forward thinking there’s a way to balance all of your many kinds of relationships.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Someone from your past thinks of you often and fondly — just one of the many benefits to living generously the way you do. You’ve been in this mind-set a while now and will continue to reap indirect benefits from the good karma you’ve built up. You’re not in it for personal gain, but rewards keep coming anyway.  

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Love can be demanding; passion can be overwhelming. The week calls for restraint and kindness. You are content to know that you already have a person’s heart. You really don’t need this person’s soul, too. Were you to take an interest in this, it would be readily given. Be merciful instead.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Facts can be checked. Truth is trickier. The feeling of truth may be undeniably powerful, but it’s still just a feeling right now. You want proof. You want to give another person the proof too, but it may not be possible. So you’ll just have to trust that the feeling is real and keep building a case by gathering evidence.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re at a different stage than you were last week. Maybe it’s not where you want to be, but don’t discount the growth. You’re headed in the right direction and you can do this, regardless of your current confidence level. Moments of wavering faith come with the territory. Just don’t let your doubts stop you.  

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Maybe you’ll be tired but sleepless, or hungry with nothing around that you want to eat. When basics aren’t so easily sorted out, that’s telling you something. There’s something deeper that needs attention. What are you missing? Adjust and look again. One step back or forward will change your entire perspective.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Recklessness and confidence are not the same, though they sometimes take the same actions. Look for the underlying motives and reasons that people do what they do. Steer clear of recklessness, as it comes from an attitude of hopelessness. Confidence comes from belief and optimism.
