ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll have to deal with small-minded people, and don’t expect for a minute that you can change their way of thinking. Also, don’t underestimate the capacity for good to come out of your interactions with people who think differently. It’s hard to believe, but small minds often share bodies with big hearts.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Do you get the sense that you’re living in the “lite” iteration of an app? You have options, things are working, but this isn’t all there is. Pack your suitcase and get yourself to the scary-big deluxe version. It’s what you must do if you are to avoid becoming a shrink-wrapped form of the person you intended to be.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). No one gets out of a hole by standing, digging, walking or doing anything compliant with the laws of gravity. To exit a hole you must defy gravity. Did you not know that this situation of yours was a hole? It’s why you’ll spend some of the week climbing, or, if you’re lucky, you’ll tap in to your air-sign nature and find a way to fly.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are a magician this week, and even you don’t know what you’ll pull next from your hat. This kind of magic won’t require a great deal of setup or rehearsal. There’s no need to practice the trickery to perform it smoothly, because this is the real deal — a powerful, unpredictable and autonomous force.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve decided on who you want to be. It may seem there are many ways of going about it — methods and fixes galore. But this luxury of choice is an illusion. There is only one choice. Because it’s a hard one, you won’t want to see it right away, but deep inside, you know what it is: Change your life.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll go in to this week with a plan, all the while knowing the dangers of being too faithful to it. Most of the week’s distractions lead nowhere, with the exception of a few solid impulses that, if followed, could make all the difference to your progress. Stay smart, alert and about 90 percent self-directed.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are simply too original to allow yourself to be characterized by type. When you sense that you’re becoming too much like the others, you’ll have the impulse to do something unexpected to differentiate yourself. Standing out from the crowd in a daring way will bring you notoriety at worst, success at best!
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Whether advertising your services, making a sales pitch or telling your story to someone who wants to know you better, it takes courage to put yourself out there for assessment. Take the sting out of it by caring less about being accepted and more about expressing yourself in an interesting, compelling way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have no idea how much your support matters to another person. It could, in fact, be the difference between solvency and need, joy and depression, courage and hopelessness. You simply cannot be too enthusiastic or too helpful when it comes to your loved ones this week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one has to tell you the virtues of shopping around for the best deal. You love doing this kind of research — unless someone is putting a damper on your process by watching you too intently. So tell that overly attentive store clerk or nosy friend to give you a little more space to do your thing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s not your usual top priority, but endeavor to delight and entertain yourself anyway. This is the highest calling of the week, believe it or not. If you set out to help others, they will feel the heaviness of this intention. Help yourself and the others will be lifted and assisted — a lucky byproduct of your joy.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No one performs at top-tier, personal-best level all of the time. Furthermore, most people have made mistakes and therefore have the capacity to forgive the mistakes of others. These are some of the reasons for the compassionate exchanges around you. You’ll experience both sides of it over the course of the week.
