ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You don’t have to stand before mountains to realize that there are things bigger than you, but those larger-than-daily-life landscapes, environments, situations, inspirations and personalities do definitely help with matters of perspective. You’ll encounter plenty of assistance in this over the course of the week.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Scientific studies find that daydreaming about goals can be so pleasurable in and of itself that the urgency to actually accomplish those goals may become reduced. Once you know what you want to do, quickly move on to facing the obstacle inside you that keeps you from it, and then forming a plan to overcome it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
It’s said that if you care about everything you care about nothing. Well, that sounds extreme, and yet you can sense that you’re going to have to pare down your list a bit: This broken world can get overwhelming to those with a supersize fix-it urge like the one you have this week!
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
History is more an art than a science. This week, memory will follow the same pattern of categorization once your very selective and creative mind gets to working. The war between remembering and forgetting is never so pronounced as it is in matters of love. What’s (SET ITAL)useful(END ITAL) to remember? Therein lies the secret.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
While some insist on honesty, you don’t mind a sweet exaggeration or two aimed at boosting confidence and creating better feelings about the little insecurities everybody has. This sort of nicety is something you provide gladly to others throughout the week, which is one reason you’re so popular these days.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Yes, you are good at many things. And generally, it’s more fun to do things you are good at. However, fun is not always the point. There’s a deeper, more significant kind of satisfaction that will catch up to you a little later because you took the time to become slightly better at something you’re basically awful at.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
If you interact with people at the level they bring to the conversation, you’ll connect. But if you bring the interaction a step or two higher — treat people as though they are a little better, wiser, smarter and more talented than they initially show you — then you elevate the experience for all.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Sometimes new places feel like home. You’ve also had the sensation of getting lost and feeling found and vice versa. It’s not so strange or inexplicable, really. Just because you’re familiar with a place, that doesn’t necessarily mean you belong there. This week “home” will take on new meanings and parameters.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
When people feel good, they tend to count every beautiful thing. When they feel bad, they count every ugly thing. Your neutral mood will bring a blend of good and bad visuals and your inner storyboard will be far more interesting for the diversity. Your creativity will be fed by all you observe this week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your social instincts are spot on. You’ll sense what people want, and you’ll quickly, smoothly deliver on those expectations. Hopefully they’ll realize the rare and lovely thing it is to interact with such graciousness, although you don’t need their appreciation in order to feel excellent about being you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
If you believe in your nostalgia-filtered memories, many things are much better than they seemed at the time. There’s no real harm in thinking this way — unless you’re making decisions about your future based on an inaccurate view of the past. In that case, a Virgo or Taurus friend can help you stay realistic.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You’ll be out of your element and perhaps unable to contribute what others seem to be exchanging there, but that’s a good sign. It means you’re brave enough to learn. It indicates that you’ll soon be expanding your influence. Anytime you can’t be useful, you’ll be observant instead. That will be useful later.
