ARIES (March 21-April 19). Situations that don’t change often enough grow stale. The stagnation breeds decay and corruption. The good news is that it doesn’t take much to invigorate the scene: Just stir it. This is so easy for you, since you’ve never been afraid of the attention. You’ll strengthen the group spirit with your shake, rattle and roll. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your proposal is almost perfect. It just needs more breathing room in it — for all involved, but mostly for you. Leave a space. The other person will want to close it fast. Back up. Make this close seem difficult, if not impossible. Now that’s a deal that the strong and worthy won’t be able to resist.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The others abandoned it and called it “beyond repair.” Funny, because all you see here is gleaming potential. And guess what? You can make it work. In fact, you can make it work better than it ever did and, perhaps most importantly, you can make it work (SET ITAL) for you. (END ITAL) Roll up your sleeves and dig into this.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s better to be a bit off and memorable than to be just right and forgettable. With all the other distractions going on this week, even the most excellent impression could soon be forgotten. Put an extra effort in so you’ll stand out. If they’re going to do what you say, they have to first remember that you said it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s not all about you. You stand for values that reach above and beyond your personal impact. You’re not minimized by this realization — quite the contrary. Your values make you spiritually bigger, with more reach than you ever thought possible. You’re aligned with millions; together you can change everything.  

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may seek to become indispensable to a certain someone or to your entire group. Once you’re inextricably linked to certain accomplishments and traits, your position will feel more secure. Is this kind of security an illusion? Maybe, and yet your drive to connect will lead to many solid results.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Togetherness and connectedness with others is essentially human. So even though crowds can be unpredictable and scary, you’ll brave it and embrace the risk, just to feel that particular sense of being alive that only comes from moving with and being moved by the multitudes.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Surprise chaos! Oh what fun! Not only will you be challenged to handle it within a certain period of time, you’ll also have the extra bonus challenge of setting it right again after it’s blown over. This is why you’ll be paid more, respected more and ultimately given more of what you want out of life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve talents that you don’t think of as talents — gifts that are hard to explain and can really only be appreciated by those who operate on a higher level. These gifts will be put to use this week. Don’t worry about who is undervaluing or overvaluing your work; just apply yourself and all will be well.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A partner who can do all of the things that you don’t know how to do yet will be a real asset now. Find, charm and befriend this person. You’ll teach each other. Know what you’re exchanging. Note that if the exchange is uneven, it won’t last. Figure out a way to even it up before this becomes an issue.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If everyone would behave in a generally orderly manner, a lot of confusion and accidents could be avoided. Everyone won’t. But some will, especially because you ask nicely, apply ample charm and lead by example. Furthermore, people like you and they want to make you happy. Enjoy your status.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s a dream activity now, but you’d love to make it a habit. Once this is part of your daily routine, it will no longer require emotional effort. And who would you be if you could do this activity every day? One happy individual! Transformation is possible. Believe and act on the belief. You were meant for this.    Lucky color: brown
