ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Ease and happiness are not the goal. They are too transient to make good markers. It’s like making a road marker out of a bunny. If you chase ease and happiness, they will run from you. Goodness and truth, on the other hand, are excellent guideposts, buried deep and sure to stay put as you near them.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
It sometimes seems to you that the act of socializing is an obligation that pulls you away from your work instead of an opportunity to connect with and learn from others and perhaps collaborate and collude to help one another reach individual and shared goals. Anyway, this week is not the time to isolate. Get out there!
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
It doesn’t take intelligence or special talent to decide that others are inferior. Any insecure, confused individual can be an elitist. Inclusiveness, on the other hand, takes courage. But don’t worry: When you don’t feel particularly courageous or confident, your natural inclination toward goodness will take over.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
While others expect that things will even out, you’re not so sure. You’ve seen plenty of instances where something badly needs to change and just doesn’t. Who’s going to make it happen? How? There’s a chance that if you don’t level the powerful and elevate the powerless, no one will. This is your purpose.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You need relationships in your life in which you feel you can be real. It happens with people who can relate to the way you think, who match you energetically and who can set aside social norms in favor of accepting actual human motives and needs. This week will highlight the precious gift of such a relationship.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Don’t sit around in isolation trying to come up with your next big plan. That’s the hard way (if it works at all). The more people you network with, the better your plan will be. Get more ideas on the table. Those with adjacent interests are nearby; all you have to do is reach out.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Your strong logical sense is impervious to charisma and other kinds of enchantment. As a result, this week, you’re practically immune to cons, scams and selfish persuasion. If you can’t reason it out, you won’t buy in. Offer help to the gullible people around you who really could use your judgment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Young people aren’t the only ones who need friendships in order to thrive. People of all ages require mutually stimulating interactions. It’s how humans are wired! Neurons in the brain that go dormant too long will wither and die. Relationships are an essential part of health. Work on this area of your life this week.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your personal energy is a renewable resource, but it can be depleted to such a point that it’s not easily recovered. If you drive yourself too hard for too long, it can be very difficult to power back up. It’s a week to take excellent and conservative care of your most precious asset: your life force.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Time is somehow more tangible to you now. It’s as though you can see the wheels and gears of the universal clock ticking away the seconds of this existence. This produces both clarity and urgency. Whole endeavors, practices and habits need to be dropped in order to pick up the start of something new.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Sometimes it seems that sections of your life are so different from one another, you’re not the same person from one role to the next. But you are the same person. Your various roles are not separate airtight compartments; rather, they work like organs, each supporting the function of the others to keep you vitally alive.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You’ll go out of your way to build someone up: perhaps by paying this person compliments that are not exactly well-deserved; or perhaps you’ll change the game to make it easier for them. There’s no harm in temporarily extending this generosity. Confident people will perform better! Though, eventually, you’ll have to get more realistic.
