ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll keep going with an endeavor until you’re quite masterful, even though that won’t matter too much to you. Good results are favorable but not necessary. You enjoy the motions, the sounds and scents swirling in the atmosphere of your work. Even when it goes badly, you don’t mind it. It’s the right place for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The image is not always the essence and the essence may not be even close to the image. To understand the nature of things and know what really is true about them you must take a large sampling of experiences. Look at your subject from different distances with various lenses and in other qualities of light.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). While some around you will try to influence the situation through force, you take the cool route — relaxed acceptance of what comes. Acceptance is not passive. In a way, it’s brave. Also, acceptance gives you the power to change what needs changing, because you’re dealing in what’s real.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). We are often taught to look at life in one way when there are many vantages that would work just as well. Try to stay as open as possible to the facts of existence from all angles this week. If you censor yourself or others, it will hurt your ability to engage with and be energized by the the life force around you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). That dynamic that keeps replaying — the repetition might have you wondering if you’re subconsciously doing something to make this happen. It’s an excellent week to ask yourself the hard-hitting questions. You could really get to the bottom of an emotional conundrum and thereby be released from it forever. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Look past what people are saying, and seek to find out and ultimately understand what they need. There are people you can’t be around for long without a great deal of stress and tension, but if you build in some recovery time between visits you’ll find that you’re actually energized and inspired by this.  

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can tell the truth without worrying too much about the facts. The facts are not inconsequential; the facts definitely have consequence and their own kind of integrity, but because they can be stacked in so many different ways they cannot be trusted. The facts mislead and become, oddly, less truthful than the truth.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you love, you hope your love will be contagious. If it’s not, it has nothing to do with you. It’s just that the people around you are wired in different ways. Thank goodness the internet can help you find friends with similar interests — and that will be one of the best uses for it this week. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s beautiful when things happen for the first time. The older you get, the less likely this is to happen. You have to work harder toward “first time” experiences, and even then there’s no guarantee you’ll get that fresh feeling you crave. It’s your quest of the week. The renewal of your heart depends on this.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The mood will descend on you a few times: You want to be the only one home. You want to have your space completely to yourself. You don’t want to feel the weight of compromise on your shoulders in work or in anything else, really. You’ll get your wish, though not by magic — through planning and negotiation.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Are you putting too

much of yourself into your work? Theoretically, you could do it impersonally. You could pull off the technical aspects without emotion. Even the social aspects could be completed on auto-pilot to some degree. And yet, without the personal touch that only you can give, none of it will.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Thinking and saying  the wrong things is your right and the right of every human. You don’t begrudge anyone their wrongheadedness. You don’t aim to stay in your own either, but anyone who is learning is going to get it wrong a few times. Grace allows for this and doesn’t make a big deal out of it.
