ARIES (March 21-April 19). Don’t have a clue what you’re doing? That’s a very good sign. Because if this is truly a big opportunity, it will afford you miles of growth in every direction that matters. If you completely understand what’s up, it’s a sign that the situation is too small for you and in a matter of weeks you’ll want to move on from it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This week is like a layered appetizer dip. Each ingredient is mighty fine, but it’s the combination of all the ingredients stacked together that makes the “wow” you want to write home about. Well, if not “home,” do write somewhere about it. Snap pictures, too: There are many reasons you’ll want to remember this.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The best of your energy will go into building bonds and making contacts. One caution: don’t mistake a social happening for an intelligence-gathering mission. The point is not to learn everything you can about people; the point is to relate. Relating requires you to learn just enough about people to find common ground.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s possible that, just by showing up, you’ve upset some balance. These things happen. Don’t worry; the others will adjust. Do not be overly accommodating to this end. You deserve to be and take up space where you are. There will always be resistant and welcoming forces to manage; you’re becoming an expert.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll observe how others typically behave, and you’ll plan accordingly in the knowledge that, more often than not, people behave consistently. You’re “people,” too. In fact, there’s something you are consistently doing that you’d like to change — perhaps the tendency to run a few minutes late. Fortune will favor your efforts.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In some ways you’re not in charge. There’s an agenda that was laid out like a conveyor belt long ago. You and the others are now being whisked along, formed by each stop. Probably you are feeling slightly detached yet still curious and aware, as you ready yourself for the opportunity to take back control.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You accomplished the goal! While it would be wrong to attribute this win to luck, you still may not know exactly how you were able to pull it off. This is your week to turn effective action into an effective (SET ITAL) system (END ITAL) of action so you can get it right every time. Don’t celebrate the victory until you can repeat the success.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Most people think others are paying closer attention to them than is actually the case. Magicians know the truth and use people’s lack of focus to create tricks that will awe and stun. You may experiment as such this week, or perhaps you’ll just kick back, relieved to know that not everyone is looking at you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe you don’t exactly have a passion for the main work of this week, but try and lather up a little fervor anyway. Look harder for the good here. Which part of it can you get behind and really sell? You could use a few more on board. That will change everything about the pursuit. The more the merrier.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you resolve to be brief, you’re not “dumbing it down.” Everyone knows it takes more brains to be succinct and on point. This week you’ll be a master at making your message so simple, direct and gracious that it will be impossible to misinterpret, even while Mercury is retrograde.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Working fast and under-thinking things may be a careless approach, but at least it leaves room for others to jump in with assistance and corrections. On the other hand, over-thinking and over-doing tends to result in repellant work that demands too much attention from others and leaves no room for contribution.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Dive in and act like you’re comfortable and you belong. What? You’re not and you don’t? Well that’s where the (SET ITAL) acting (END ITAL) comes in. You don’t need theater classes, either. You’ve known how to act since you were three. All you have to do is commit wholly to your premise and pretend. Pretend hard.
