ARIES (March 21-April 19). For as long as you’re awake you’ll be in motion, and there’s no sign of any of it stopping. You’re an attractive blur of energy. Those who are watching you now will pursue you later. This action mode you’re in will be good for a special relationship, even though the other person may not see you for days.

    TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The event you’ve been devoting so much thought to may not be the most important thing going on in your current environment. At least it led you here. Now it’s time to open your eyes and look around. What’s more crucial? It has something to do with using your talent to help and inspire others to use theirs.  

    GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Even though there is strategy involved in rising to power, you’re not conscious of playing a game all of the time. This week you are often motivated not by the prize at stake but by the feelings being exchanged by those around you. The action will play out to your advantage because you truly care about people.    

    CANCER (June 22-July 22). You were taught to persevere even when you’re not having fun, and there’s no sign of that changing anytime soon. Ask yourself whom exactly will benefit from your sacrifice. Shouldn’t your life be fun at least some of the time? This week, if you’re not having fun, it’s a hint that the endeavor isn’t for you. Drop it.

    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your iron will has been a difficult weight to carry at times, especially when you were small. In the past, your elders dealt with the burden of it and, hopefully, even then recognized it for the rare and precious gift it is. This week will call your iron will to the forefront. With great determination, you’ll resolve the issue at hand.

    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just because your dreams are big doesn’t mean you have to overcome crazy odds. All is doable through steady, measured, consistent and numerous steps. So don’t go looking for 10-foot-high obstacles to jump over. It’s enough just to occupy yourself with the next step and the next.

    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll grow to become masterful in an area of life in which you currently have little power. There are risks involved here. What was offensive yesterday will be considered “moxy” or “chutzpah” this week. Take charge; be daring then appreciate the reaction of others, which is always some kind of opportunity.

    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re a detective of sorts, and more cleverly observant than anyone around. It’s what you do with the information that makes the difference in both your character and the outcome of the mystery. Play it cool. Be discreet. And try not to share anything that really should be revealed by someone else.

    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Those with little emotional control are like whirlwinds capable of snagging people into their destruction. The smart way is to sense them coming like you would a storm in the distance and then take cover. Even better, have a designated “storm shelter” and a plan for handling this kind of emotional weather.

    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your cogency rating is off the charts this week, making you an ideal student and teacher. The reason you are so clear, logical and convincing in almost all your communications is that you know what you want out of the interaction and you’re savvy about finessing your message for your particular audience.

    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your work is not a matter of life or death, so why approach with a “do or die” attitude? Take breaks. Check out how the others are accomplishing it. Call your “lifeline” — except change the name to “funline” — and see how that changes the conversation. As you lighten up in one area of life, other parts fall into place.

    PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As for the official plan you tell your family and advisers — if that pans out, good. But if the plan you only admit to your closest friends is the one — well, great! Yet not quite as great as if your secret plan (the one for just you) takes off. (More likely than you think, especially if you make it a little less secret.)
