ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You shouldn’t have to struggle or surmount anything this week. To get along with or to persuade another person will have a lot to do with natural compatibility. The match will be in the subject and general tone of what you’re offering — nothing personal. Don’t waste time with a hard sell. Move along to an easier fit.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

The people closest to you know how to trigger your emotions for better or worse. They may not do this intentionally or consciously, but they’ll do it nonetheless. Bottom line, you’ll have to ignore some things in the name of maintaining an excellent mood. You’ll do this and have a beautiful week.   


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Just as juggling isn’t an activity people can master in an hour, life balance isn’t something that’s magically achieved. This week brings glorious moments when you feel centered, graceful and generally in control of your dance through life. Awkwardness will happen, too — something to accept. Chalk it up to practice.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

There’s no real pressure to find a solution or draw a conclusion (though your mind may tell you otherwise). Maybe there’s really nothing to fix here after all. Once you relax, you might alight upon an altogether different approach — a mindset that lets you do the same things you’re doing, without an ounce of stress or effort.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

It feels nice to get the approval of many, and it feels even better to hear specific words from one person whose opinion matters much to you. It’s likely that you will be lucky enough to receive such validation this week, however, don’t expect the satisfaction to last. It’s what you think of yourself that matters and holds.   


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It just so happens that when people say, “Let’s do something creative with this,” they often come up with a rather common approach. Creativity doesn’t seek to be creative; it seeks to be expressed. There’s something offbeat in you that wants to be brought to life. You’re daring enough to execute it this week.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

There are times the world needs you to spell it all out, but this week you’re better off letting them guess. Your complexity is equally beautiful to people who have the capacity and instinct to try and explore it as it is to the utterly mystified. As long as you know what you’re doing, you’re golden.


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

 These last days of the year bring a fork in the road. One path appears to be rather smooth and flat; the other brings an immediate incline. Either would make a fine choice. Both are within your capability. But only one will offer an expansive view when you get to the end.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Martha Graham said, “Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” Maybe you’ll luck into an opportunity to dance, but if you don’t, there will still be a kind of poetry to your movement that others will notice. You’ll telegraph your mood and even some of your thoughts through body language.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If you think that money will solve every problem, you could create many problems for yourself by trying to come up with more and more money. The reality is that money helps in many cases, but creativity, heart, empathy, ingenuity, initiative, good relationships and about a million other things will help more.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Regardless of Mercury’s direction, practicalities will come together with the expected steps and appropriate efforts. Then there’s something more that happens — incredible! You don’t have to believe in magic for magic to happen to you, but it’s usually a lot more fun that way!


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your cosmic gift of the week will be ample supplies of self-control. You’ll hold yourself back from what’s unnecessary and commit fully to enjoying the best, most-concentrated goodness. Your sense of moderation will set a tone that inspires the best behavior in others. It’s because of you that things go so well.
