ARIES (March 21-April 19)
It’s better to have the courage of your convictions than to hedge your way through life. To move forward with certainty, even though you suspect the absurdity in being sure of anything at all, is something you’ll do out of necessity this week. Your loved ones are counting on you to be brave.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You’ve been generous, and it’s about time they reciprocated by opening their hearts and ears to you. You deserve this, and furthermore, you shouldn’t have to feel like you must be smart and entertaining in order to be listened to. The one who loves you will help you let off steam and won’t judge you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
No one is asking you to correlate all of the contents of your mind. The opposing thoughts can both be true. The clashing ideas add excitement and interest. Besides, you never know who might be falling in love with your complexity. (Although you’ll get a pretty good hint about it this week!)
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
Learn the desires of other people. It will be the most important thing you do all week. Then instead of treating people how you would like to be treated, you will be able to treat them how they want to be treated. It’s the secret to making the difference you want to make and building the relationships of your dreams.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Go on and waste the time. Waste it on frivolous things, on staring into space, on climbing and falling from the tree, on tasting useless delights with people you’re not even sure about. Bright bits of life fuse in the shameful waste of seconds and days on what shouldn’t matter in the least, but somehow is all that does.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Strengths come with weaknesses; gifts come with shadow sides. Ignoring or trying to hide the “unfavorable” parts of a thing is not only too difficult to be practical; it’s also a missed opportunity. To embrace dual aspects of a thing is to know, and have usage of, the full power of it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
You may find people’s expectations of you to be interesting and perhaps also informative, but you should in no way accept those expectations as your guide or directive. They don’t know. Who does know? You, and only you. You will soar beyond the place they are expecting you to land.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Though you’ve fashioned aspects of your life and work after people you admire, there is a limit to how fully you can adopt another person’s qualities. Of course, it is virtually impossible to be anyone else at all. This is something to be very glad for. You’re magnificent. Why would you want to be anyone else? Live in this.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
It’s fine to doubt the plan, the ideology behind it, the entire kit and caboodle — but don’t let that doubt keep you from moving forward. You’re better off to keep taking notes at this point. Follow through as though you are obedient and committed to the original deal. It is, after all, too soon to tell.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The experts who tell you “practice self-care” are giving fine and literal advice. “Self-care” does, after all, require “practice.” Don’t expect yourself to get it right all of the time. You’re a growing, changing work-in-progress. Keep making new efforts to support yourself, as you’re learning more and more as you go.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You’d prefer to live in an organized world. For one thing, it’s prettier. The only problem is that not everything fits neatly into a category. Therefore, it is important to observe well and understand as much as possible about the nature of things before you figure out how (and if) they fit into your scene.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
It seems like it would be a simple thing to know the difference between “feeling it” and “not feeling it.” However, there’s much hype, glamour and distraction to keep you from being certain of this. When you’re not sure, step away. Take your time. Resist impulse and you’ll soon discover the deep wisdom within you.
