ARIES (March 21-April 19)

The contradictions will be abundant: action and inaction, war and peace, still power, pure potential that’s somehow waiting to be and yet already realized. “All well and good in the mind of a meditating monk,” you think, “but what is my next move?” The ultimate (and perhaps only) move: Stay centered and accept now.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Some believe that artists are not creators so much as conduits for creation, plucking ideas out of the ether and pulling them through themselves. When you’re in creative mode — as you will be for much of this week — even you will not be sure exactly whence the inspiration comes, though come it will.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

You’re a very physical person, though you don’t get to express it as often as you’d like. So much of life is spent seated. To move is to be free. Increase the action this week. Break out of a pattern. When you want to run, run. When you feel like dancing, dance. Do it regardless of who else is, or what others might think.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

You are to the universe as a wave is to the ocean. No creature can experience the whole ocean, but many know the experience of a wave. This week you will not be in complete control over the intensity of your presence. Feelings fluctuate from gentle and beautiful to mighty and overpowering — all valid and important.  


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be wary of those who come at their interests with religious vehemence and want you to do the same. In the case of actual religion, double up on your protective instincts. The truth is something people don’t have to be converted into. It has a feeling to it. It brings with it a clarity of being. Seek truth, not promises.  


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Surprisingly, many people have yet to learn the basics of conversation. The first rule is not to interrupt. And to monopolize the conversation, listen poorly, argue stubbornly or belittle anyone’s ideas is totally bad form. It’s going to be up to you to bring back the civilized tone when things take an arrogant turn.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You’re the master of ceremonies this week. Wherever you go, you set the tone. You make introductions and bring people together. You’re quick-witted, alert and reliable. And you’re in a position to pass the spotlight to talented people. Feature those who are experienced, also those who need the opportunity to develop.  


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

It is possible (and likely, even) to be overweight and undernourished. Quantity doesn’t equal nutrition, and may in fact be harmful. The concept will apply to other areas of your life this week. “More” isn’t necessarily enough. Better to have a little of what’s right than a lot of anything else.  


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your wish will be a tall order, but not out of line or out of the realm of possibility. If they balk at your request, it only means you’re asking the wrong person. Don’t take it personally. Act with goodwill and keep moving until you find what you’re looking for. You’ll soon find yourself among accomplished and helpful people.  


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’ll be given a general direction, and then you can figure out for yourself what style of execution works best for you. Note that the direction you’ll be given may not sound general at all. It may seem that someone is trying to micromanage you, in fact, but don’t take offense. Use the pointers as guidelines.  


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’re ready and looking for someone to fill a role in your life. It’s not a necessary role — the play could certainly go on without that addition — yet it would be wonderful to find what you seek. You’re looking for brilliance, forcefulness and courage in action — in other words, for someone to match what you bring to the scene.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Those who have hurt you will present a difficult paradox. They are the hardest people to act compassionately toward, and yet they are also the ones who need your compassion most. On the bright side, difficult emotional work like this is an opportunity for advanced souls to become quickly wiser and stronger.
