ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You’ve set goals and achieved them — plenty of times! You’ve also done the opposite. Now you’re not sure whether you should even bother making a goal out of the endeavor at hand. Perhaps it’s better to handle it without upping the expectations. At least set up a system, so you can get to love a process.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You feel like a character in someone else’s story. Well, that’s some big-time information right there. Are you getting the message? Everything points to this: It’s time to get back inside your own book. You’re the main character in that story, and it’s mostly still unwritten.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Your life happens wherever you are. So those who say that home is where your life happens (or work is where your life happens, or vacation or wherever) — they are missing the point. It’s now. It’s always now. Part of you feels like you’ve been on hold. Release the hold. This week shows you getting better and better and filling out the now.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

You have quite a bit to say on the topic of discussion rending around you, but you’ll probably take advantage of the restrained mood and incredible self-discipline that is your cosmic gift this week and go in another direction. You’ll remain silent until it matters. You’ll speak when it counts. You’ll have impact.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

A sandwich has the bread on the outside. If the bread isn’t on the outside, it’s not a sandwich. The order in which things are done will matter quite a lot. You could do the exact same things, but in a different order, and it wouldn’t work at all. Getting the order right will be a talent of yours this week.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You know better than to sit around and wait for opportunity to find you. It never happens that way. Never! People do catch breaks, though. And you’ll definitely get lucky in some way this week. It may not feel like luck, though, because you’ll have already put in so much that it’s just what was due to you.  


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

There’s no need to respond to negativity. You could, but since it wouldn’t make a difference — and in fact it might make things worse — the only reason would be to feed your own need to be right. Don’t worry, though: There will be an ideal time to respond next week. For now, take notes and wait.


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

There’s a time to make a decision but more than that there’s a mood that’s right for it. It’s not when you’re hungry or sad or angry. It’s not when you’re over-the-top happy either. Decisions are best made from a neutral, rational and emotionally detached place. You’re likely to reach such a mood on Thursday or Friday.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Honey is said to catch more flies than vinegar or a gallon of gall — but who wants a bunch of flies buzzing around anyway? This week you’ll be seeking better customers — customers who are less pesky and are into clean transactions and more appreciative of your offerings.  


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Have faith that you’ll eventually get there. Don’t expect to get things right the first time — or the second, or the 10th. You will be forming new theories and ways of testing them out, and you will be better, broader, more interesting, funnier and more relatable because you had to explore to get it right.  


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your leadership will be needed. However, you have guidelines for yourself about when and why you should step in. If it looks like they will be able to figure it out on their own, you wouldn’t dream of robbing them of the opportunity by coming to the rescue too early. Good leadership involves believing in people. 


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

As long as you’re moving, you’re growing (even if it seems like you’re moving backward). This week shakes up your self-definition. You’ll be in the stages of becoming. Don’t even bother trying to pin a label on this. Just experience it. Later you can see how things settle in and give it all a name.
