ARIES (March 21-April 19).

While an even hum of contentment buzzes through your week, you may nonetheless find yourself longing for something extra. Is it so wrong to crave a more vivid and extreme state of being? Wrong or not, you can’t seem to help what you want, only how you react to the pangs of appetite.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Don’t talk about the change you want to make, because that will let all of the air out of it. You need that air for the tires that will ride you to your future. Pump yourself up with inspiration. Twist the cap back on to seal it in. Then take off on the adventure. There will be plenty of time to talk about it when it’s done.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

 You can invite inspiration, but don’t expect her to RSVP. She doesn’t like to be pinned down to an exact time and place. Do the work whether or not you are inspired and you will get results. When inspiration finally shows up, the experience will be magical. Until then, you’ll have to prove that you can carry the load.    


CANCER (June 22-July 22) 

Uncertainty causes anxiety and also excitement. There will be a payoff, and it will come in stages this week. The thing you didn’t know about (and were apprehensive of) will become known, and later well-known. You may even look back on your worries with fondness and nostalgia.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

The story you tell yourself (a tangled, complicated story of emotionally layered events that led to heartbreak) may be legitimate in every sense. You still have to get on with things. This week is about shrugging off the hardships and moving forward unencumbered. There’s so much to be done!


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Emotions and thoughts aren’t self-governing, and they can be quite inappropriate at times. So what?! It’s part of what makes you relatable to your friends — you know, those people you chose precisely because they don’t judge you harshly when you say the unsayable. Be nice to yourself. Confide in the openhearted.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You need to get to the truth, and you will. You could ask for it, though it would be amateur to depend on just one method of extracting honesty — especially considering your superpower of nuanced observation. You hear what people never say aloud.


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Change always involves loss; it’s an inextricable part of the deal. Even the most joyful changes imaginable include loss. It’s not change unless there’s something left behind. So if, after you get your heart’s desire, you feel strangely melancholic, do not confuse this with regret. It only means the transition is complete.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Over the course of it, life begins anew again and again. You’re not being hopeful by thinking you’ll get another chance at feeling how you want to feel: You know the chance is coming. But how are you going to approach it differently this time? It’s the slight shifts in perspective and strategy that will get you there.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

To unite with another, you must forget part of yourself. To unite with the group, forget more of yourself. This partial and temporary amnesia of your own will and desire is a good thing to learn and develop. There are many useful applications. Just be extremely choosy about the forces with whom you unite.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Being at a loss for words will lead you to feel lost in general. That’s why you’ll feel better when you define the indefinite, talk out the transitions or just come up with with some general answers for the questions you’re dreading. Work out what you want people to know about you at this juncture.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your level of ambition is different than it was, and it will be in flux for a little while. This is partly because you’re not sure where to direct your considerable amount of personal will, deep wells of creativity and large reserves of physical vitality. What is worthy of you? This is the driving question of the week.
