ARIES (March 21-April 19)
It’s painful to watch someone being too self-conscious to make a real connection, and it’s even more painful to be that person. It’s also easily remedied. When you feel yourself thinking too much about how you’re coming across and whether or not they like you, turn your eyes to them. Observe. Get curious.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Some aspire to normality, while others try to get away from it. Both ways are problematically based on a comparison to others. “How does this feel to me?” is quite a different question from the question of “How does this fit into the national average?” or “How are most people doing this?”
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Love and the law come together in matters of marriage and in other ways, too, this week. Feelings can’t be measured in the terms of a logistical agreement, but they will certainly be indicated by how far we go to provide proof of affection, devotion and future intention. Bottom line: If you love it, lock it down.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
It’s a time to be exceptionally cautious, reveal nothing and trust no one without first scrutinizing the situation for red flags. It’s not that these are dangerous times; it’s just that you have so much to gain now by increasing your awareness of nuances, looking for hidden opportunities and being generally strategic.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Your interactions should feel like a dance. In a dance, neither party causes the other to move; rather, movement is the natural flow. Dances leave room to follow the impulse of the moment. If it feels forced, it’s something other than a dance — maybe a manipulation or a con. You’re a dancer and deserve the same.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It’s like the stagehand of life is giving you a follow spot right now, whether you want one or not. Make the most of this shiny hot attention by showing off a skill, pointing people to the causes you care about or generally having fun with your moment. These don’t come along every week, you know!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
There will be key opportunities to speak your mind. Much that you say will be accepted. If you do say something that doesn’t land quite right, it’s probably because you’ve been misinformed, or have made an incorrect assumption. By speaking up, you’ll find the holes in your knowledge and remedy the situation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Sometimes you can will reality to go a certain way and it actually seems to bend to your will. Then there are times (more of which will be represented this week) when reality is like an insurmountable wall you come up against. Meet reality where it is instead of wishing it were otherwise.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The king doesn’t often go to where the subjects are. Instead the subjects seek an audience with the king and are willing to enact the required protocol as part and parcel of the privilege of royal attention. Something about this arrangement doesn’t sit right with you. You will, therefore, seek the council of equals.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You already know all about the dangers of getting too comfortable. That’s when mistakes happen that could have easily been avoided with a little vigilance. This week the atmosphere will feel safe, people will be lovely and warm toward you, and yet it would still be unwise to let your guard down too far.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
There will be opportunities to understand that in some situations you are the receptor, not the transmitter, of the signal. Accepting this role will bring relief, and a rush of new energy, since you no longer have to try hard to get your message across; you need only to hear what is being expressed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is a time to remain keenly aware of your influence over others. It could be argued that each person is the conductor of his or her own mind, and yet you know that there are times when advantages can be pushed. You will ultimately be held accountable, so it’s best to take responsibility up front.
