ARIES (March 21-April 19)

In a perfect world, each person would be liked always by everyone. But it’s not a perfect world. In this world, if you were liked by everyone, it would be a bad sign — a sign that you’re changing for others instead of being totally yourself. This week the ones who get you will be pure gold. Forget the ones who don’t.

 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

One opinion isn’t everybody’s opinion. The principle will apply to science, sales and love this week. Those who collect data from a large sample will be more enlightened and ultimately more successful than those who work within a small range. In other words, success comes from branching out.

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Once upon a time you wanted the wrong thing, or maybe it was your way of going about achieving it that was amiss. Either way, something was off, but there’s no benefit to dwelling on the matter. Your priorities have shifted since, and the best thing to do is to let old baggage go, clean the slate and embark anew. 

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

The shallow value systems projected by junk media aren’t worth adopting, and they may even be harming you by keeping you from more meaningful pursuits. Luckily your cosmic gift this week is the self-control to actively shut out crummy influences. Bottom line: Don’t overrate anyone based on superficial criteria.   

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Because you’ve gotten busier, there are certain investments you’re afraid to make. For instance, you don’t want to commit large blocks of time to people or endeavors you don’t know well, even though your curiosity may be piqued. Don’t be afraid to negotiate a lower risk. After all, you need fresh inspiration.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’ll be moving between different settings and groups. Though each scenario has its unique culture, your desire to connect will win out, especially if that desire is combined with a message, product, service or general purpose you really believe in. Go forward in confidence. One size will not fit all, but it will fit most.

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

When you aim your efforts at that purpose of building goodwill, you won’t go wrong. Yes, there are deals to be made, but that’s a little further down the line. Anyway, those will go much better when you lay the groundwork of trust, positive feelings and a fun, easy connection.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

The story of your life is created in the same way that all stories are. The protagonist (you) is thwarted on the way to the goal. Considering this, it’s not what you have but what you don’t have that shapes the story. Keep going for it. Don’t let this chapter end until you reach the happy ending (followed by the cliffhanger).

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re compelled to exceed people’s expectations — a signal of your generosity and position. Think twice, though. You don’t want to be perceived as too forward, which causes others to, quite naturally, step back. People prefer to earn their ways. Remember this before you start offering things so freely.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’ve a wide emotional range and each feeling has its own volume knob. You’re getting better at dialing up or down the intensity as needed. Mostly this week requires a light touch. When in doubt, go even lighter. A breezy approach in many matters is both the most effective and the most attractive approach.

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You had a plan. Now that plan doesn’t seem to be fitting. Don’t be too proud to revise it. It’s not that you were wrong; it’s just that the old you couldn’t have possibly known what would be relevant to the new you. This week represents a shift. Transitions always take more energy. Don’t worry: You’ll settle in soon enough.

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’ll work for the joy, not the credit. No matter. Everyone around sees what you do. They may not bring attention to it, but you’re definitely establishing a reputation. The weekend brings a choice between two options. Don’t make the mistake of prioritizing what’s urgent over what’s just for you. Be selfish.
