ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re a good sport, but there’s no question you’re in it to win it. Your competitive drive is intense, and you’re also a stellar planner. You’ll spend at least a dozen hours on your blueprint for domination. Being No. 1 is a simple matter of figuring out what the entity in the No. 1 spot has and bettering it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can be sure of this: Your presence means something profound to someone, and so does your absence. This person will strongly influence the way you spend your week. The theme is “obligation.” How far does this go in relationships? What do we really owe the people who care about us?

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be profoundly impacted this week — overjoyed and moved to enthusiastic self-expression. Avoid hyperbole. Each person is unique; each relationship has peculiarities. Your astute observations will give you the power to touch people without your hands. The specificity of your gestures will hold powerful magic.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The sweet music of a new project will lure you in. You’ve long been attracted to the melody of this endeavor, and this week you’ll finally seize the chance to learn the lyrics. You’ll quickly go from “skilled” to “masterful” to “performance-level greatness” — and then it will be time to teach others.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s natural to become upset when life contradicts the way we expect, want and need it to unfold. Maturity will temper nature this week. So much of life is about your reaction to it. You’ll work on being less reactive in general and find that your new, calmer way of processing events will bring about the best outcome.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Unless you work against it, the natural tendency will be toward impatience, which is closely linked to immaturity. Beat this by training yourself to think long-range. Set goals now that you want to achieve by this time next month. The small, almost-too-easy type of aims will work in your favor, adding up to big gains over time. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you prefer to deal in logic, every once in a while the fantastical part of your brain takes over and, instead of resisting, you revel in the fanciful possibilities. Among them is the possibility of escape. Your escape fantasy will help you home in on the things about your circumstances you really need to change. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). This business of coming to terms with your mistakes doesn’t have to be done in such a grave spirit. Shame is optional. You must admit that some of your mistakes were so brilliant they deserve celebration. You wouldn’t repeat them now, but if you had to do it over, you’d do it all the same (but without the agonizing).

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This week boundaries dare you to cross them, pleasures beckon to you in hypnotic tones and pain demands to be felt — not necessarily in that order. As you strive to be present to what comes up (instead of dodging realities that want your attention) you’ll quickly become better, stronger and wiser.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Misinformation will be conjured up through speculation, assumption and general trespassing into other people’s business. Keep your nose clean of this and your week will have a smoothness that allows for great success. “What you don’t see with your eyes, don’t invent with your mouth.” — Jewish proverb

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Healing is a sublime happiness. Whether it’s the day of vitality that comes after a bad head cold or the morning you wake up and realize that you love someone fully and joyfully with that same heart that was once bruised and broken, you will experience the rapture of restoration.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are human and therefore capable of astounding feats of growth. No matter where you’ve been and what you’ve done so far, your destiny is not fixed and neither are your abilities. This week, cultivate resiliency: physical, mental and spiritual. Hint: The happier you are, the more resilient you’ll be.
