ARIES (March 21-April 19). Even though it’s always a good idea to become stronger and more autonomous, there are more and less auspicious times to attempt becoming as free from dependencies as possible. The forces of will are behind your efforts this week. You’re powerful and in control. What was difficult before will now be painless.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It is natural for partnerships to grow apart and weave together at different points in love’s journey. This week brings an opportunity to fix what broke along the way. Old bruises to the ego will heal up nicely. You can close the gap between you and your counterpart without compromising your integrity.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). One person gets more of your attention — not really a friend, but not an adversary, either. Just know that you are not really in competition for resources; there is plenty to go around. You are two people working toward the fulfillment of individual needs. Conflict is unnecessary when you stick to your own business.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). To expand your mind and broaden your horizons you must have a goal. If you’re headed toward a juicy, exciting goal you’re very likely to roll with the stress and trepidation that comes from facing the unknown. Without a goal, there’s no reason to put up with the discomfort, and life will stay small and containable.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Much of what crosses your field of awareness needs only the most cursory assessment from you. You’ve seen this a million times before, and your experience allows you to handle all with speed and efficiency. Wednesday introduces exciting challenges to inspire deeper thought and the mastery of new skills. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Are you tracking with the others? Are you in sync with your surroundings? Repeat what you know. Do they agree with what you’ve shared? Do they have more information? A comprehensive understanding will help you make the choices that keep you rolling smoothly along. Knowing better leads to doing better.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You joined the group to benefit another. Now circumstances have changed; this is strictly about what’s good for you. Is there enough benefit to warrant your continued involvement? A decision in this regard may take you all week to come to, but once made your energy will free up. New vitality will be yours.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Must you always be happy? Right now it’s not your top priority. You require yourself to show up, do your best and give what’s asked. What’s asked of you may not coincide with your happiness immediately, but when it aligns with your sense of duty and your need to learn and grow, happiness will eventually come of it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Influential friends have a way of talking you into things you wouldn’t do if left to your own devices. This could lead to interesting consequences — maybe sore muscles, odd pictorial evidence or a sequence of events more involved and time-consuming than anticipated. At least life is more colorful!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Just because a path is dangerous doesn’t mean you won’t take it. You do, however, have a healthy respect for danger and will assess and analyze it appropriately before deciding if the risks involved offset the rewards. All this is regarding a personal decision; rely on the leanings of your own heart.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be moving quickly and working with others to get a job finished. When it doesn’t go quite right you’ll make corrections and move on. There is no time to waste on assigning blame, although if you don’t credit the right people in a timely manner there will be trouble, so definitely take the time to get that right.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). An important cause will speak to your heart. You’ll want to make the biggest difference you can make, and this is best accomplished by giving exactly what you want to give. When you’re true to yourself your efforts may or may not bear fruit, but you’ll be proud of your actions and that’s what will count.
