ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This week will be the start of an important effort. Take a “before” picture, because there will definitely be an “after” later. Write down the data that you are likely to find to be relevant in the measurement of this process. Feelings and thoughts will count, too. In fact, this journey could mostly be one of emotions.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Some say that wickedness is a kind of deep darkness, generously suggesting that those who do wicked things “don’t know over what they stumble.” But what about when all indications are that a person should know better? Perhaps it’s a waste of time to judge, but it’s not a waste of time to anticipate and protect yourself.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Though you don’t feel entirely different from last week, a new era of your life is beginning. You can count on this. One small change in your thoughts and habits will begin an entire chain of new behavior. It’s happening quite organically. You don’t have to use a ton of willpower; just remain open to the natural flow. 


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Tune in, and stay tuned. Train yourself to listen to what isn’t being said. It will be the practice through which you will become most knowledgeable. The deeper levels of education will offer the most reward. They take time, experience and relentless awareness to acquire.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Desire without knowledge is pure, gut-level and likely totally erroneous. Treat this kind of desire as a story sent by your imagination to point you in a potentially satisfying direction. Don’t take it as a plan or a sign. Investigate further. Add knowledge to the equation. With more information, this will get good.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You trust a person, but confidence will erode like an eraser with each mistake the person makes. Perhaps it’s you who is really making the mistake. Instead of placing your trust in a person, learn her instead. Observe and experiment until you can accurately predict what she will do.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

The real you is pure, vulnerable and in the process of becoming. Just as the cocoon protects the transforming butterfly, so will this week’s rules protect the treasure that is growing within you. You will not need to be around very many people, only your innermost circle and/or the most nurturing and accepting of individuals.  


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

In one relationship or adventure, you’ll experience a sense of winding down. You may wonder if the situation is coming to a natural conclusion. Then again, you might have just hit a boring part — a lull you should wait out or trudge through. Keep in mind that happy endings depend on where you stop the story.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

First comes your purpose. Then comes their opinion. It’s not that they know better or have a right to weigh in; it’s just that you’re doing something, and that gets people a little excited. It’s too soon for anyone to weigh in. Keep going with your original intent a while longer before you let yourself be influenced.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Love is joy. Love is pain. Love is surprise. Those who say they are through with love do it again. Those who are addicted give it up — then find themselves right back where love starts: a glance, a scent, the sound of a voice. Your love life is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Take a breath. Open your heart. 


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’ll find it relatively easy to control the urge to be sentimental. You sense when to look back and when to get busy with the now. You understand when to connect and when to move on. Others will depend on your stoicism. Your grounded sensibility just might keep the entire group on track this week.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’ve fought at something a while without making headway. Consider giving up the struggle. Accept the situation for what it is. You’ll know within the week if this tactic is right to continue using. Either you’ll be able to relax and focus elsewhere or you’ll relax and gather strength to finally rise again and conquer this thing.
