ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You are a complex creature with many passions and things you’re drawn to in life. People who want to understand you quickly will put you into a category, and it’s a shame, because it cuts off the full scope of you. Your challenge this week is to ignore the categorization and keep exploring your wide array of interests.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You’ll notice a lot of people don’t seem to enjoy where they are. Maybe it’s that they dislike their jobs; maybe there’s something else going on to dim life’s joy. But even in a series of interactions where the average is just terrible, one person can break the spell. You’re that person over and over this week. You’ll do it with a smile.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
For most people, life doesn’t come with the luxury of incredibly loving, supportive and happy people around all of the time. It’s why you have to insulate yourself. The energy of the world can be flat, harsh and much worse. But you can create your own bubble of energy. People will join you there this week.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
While in the moment, we can be so concerned with getting the right answer or doing the right thing that it blocks us from the array of possibilities. That’s why it’s often easier to see opportunities in hindsight. So pace yourself. See a situation over time. Get a little taste of what’s there then a little more.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
When you have something good, it gets attention, that’s the nature of it. Jealousy is a fact of life. The more attractive a person is, the bigger this issue will be. You’ll get practice dealing with the ins and outs of jealousy. Rise up; be proud instead of threatened; and get clearer on the role of loyalty in your value system.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Real trust is as attractive as disloyalty is unattractive. It can take a lot of effort to be true to your word, as you well know this week. You’ll go to great lengths to deliver as promised. Why shouldn’t you expect the same standard from others? Make sure you’re around people who can be trusted to do as they say.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Those medium emotions — such as awkwardness, boredom and mild displeasure — can be the most difficult to handle. That’s because, unlike anger or fear, they don’t come with clear, strong impulses to act. Act anyway. It’s not petty to want to move toward joy. It’s a good week to tolerate less mediocrity.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
It would be nice to have support and admiration and a posse to accompany you wherever you show up, but unless you’re a pop star it’s unlikely to be your style. Anyway, you’re too confident for all that. You don’t need permission to do what you want to do. You don’t need approval. You just need to go.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re wise to pay attention to social cues as to how you’re coming across. However, it would be wrong to put too much significance on the feedback. To recognize what people want and deliver it fast is efficient, but that’s Step 2 or 3. What do you want? Start there or you’ll feel rather incomplete.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You’re enthusiastic about what you love, and you’ll probably find that you approach it with greater focus, tenacity and intensity than most of the people around you this week. As long as you respect the common etiquette, you don’t need to apologize for your passion or tone it down. Your energy will raise theirs.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
There are many things that will not move in your desired time frame. You’ll be forced to either wait or give up, and there is no in-between choice that’s legal or moral. In such cases, you just have to wait. But if all that’s stopping you is in your own mind, don’t wait. You’ll lose the impulse. Acting is exciting; waiting is boring.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Everyone experiences awkwardness — some are just more chronically susceptible to it than others. The good news is that no one ever died of cringing. The better news is that those with the most cringes to their name are living bigger and learning more. Success tends to come with an embarrassing story or two.
