ARIES (March 21-April 19)
It’s hard to know how to help people. You want to be there, give support, do all you can to assist — and yet there’s a point in which this will bring more harm than good. Believe in the strength of others. Sometimes this will mean getting out of the way so they can have all the room and opportunity they need to flex.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Scan your internal environment for sparks of movement and life. Like a creature in nature or shooting star, a new goal can be a rather elusive thing to catch sight of. You need clear vision of what want though because you can’t really chase down a dream if you don’t know what it looks like.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
This week you’ll do some mental organizing. Certain emotions are more difficult to compartmentalize unless you’ve built the necessary internal structures. Until you have the right “container” for the feeling, holding it inside you will be like trying to box up liquid in cardboard. The feeling just leaks out around the edges.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
Most relationship problems aren’t really problems with someone else, they are you-to-you issues that will be solved with a different mindset. Change out your head. There are many ways to approach, so if one isn’t effective, don’t belabor it. Drop it. Take another angle. Stubbornness is the enemy of problem-solving.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Laughter is a proven a stress reducer, not to mention it’s solid evidence that you’re truly present in the moment (since laughter is something that happens when your mind dances with the here and now). As Steve Martin once tweeted, “It’s a beautiful day where I am. I only wish I were where I am.”
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
To love people who love you back is one of the great blessings of life and something you won’t take for granted this week. The happy energy you exude will open doors. You don’t have to walk through those doors, but it’s wonderful to know that you have the option.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Your mood shouldn’t hinge on how well you are getting along with a certain person, and yet, these days that seems to be the case. How can you take back your power? Because life is just better when you have more emotional control and don’t feel manipulated by the whims of fate and/or another person’s influence.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Part of believing in the abilities of yourself and others is knowing precisely what they are. It will help you to distinguish between the condition of being disabled and the condition of being unwilling. Just as it would be cruel to accuse the unable of being unwilling, it’s cruel let the unwilling go on as though they were unable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Ever the independent, you’re going for something very personal this week — something that happens to be quantifiable in terms that matter to you (terms that maybe don’t mean much to others). The more compelling your purpose is, the less your approval rating matters to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You aim to make your domestic life cozy and perfect for you, but there are others to accommodate in the matter as well. Embrace the challenge. This week, compromise equals improvement. The best results will happen not in spite of your limitations, but because of them.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The wide and interesting array of products and entertainments available these days hasn’t happened by accident. Creative people dared to learn, do and risk. This isn’t the age of waiting to be chosen and promoted. It’s the age of promoting yourself. You’re a creator too. Will you take the risk?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
In the past, elitism prevailed. People had to be the right ethnicity, gender and social class to pursue a calling. As a result, there were very few masters. Many such barriers have been since lifted. You can now study anything you want to learn, and so you will! In fact, you’ll start a new subject this week.
