ARIES (March 21-April 19) 

Relationships are about discovery this week. It will be as true for people you’ve known forever as it will be for people you’ve never met. There is always more to know about the other person, but that’s not the whole story. You’ll learn even more that you didn’t know about yourself as people bring out different facets of you.

 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

The saying goes, “There’s no rest for the wicked.” That means the good have to work round the clock as well to keep the balance. This won’t be a restful week for you. You’ll come out of it exhilarated by the amount you were able to accomplish and satisfied by your counterbalance to some of the negativity in the world.

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

You’ll be the icebreaker wherever you go. Your smile starts the thaw. You’ve such a natural way of warming people up that you don’t even realize you’re doing it. You like people and want to know more about them; maybe your secret is as simple as that! You’ll encourage the discouraged and help the helpless.

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Belief systems can often be more convenient than true. It’s part of the human flaw. For instance, some only believe in fate when it’s to their advantage; when things go wrong, they invoke randomness instead. You’ll see how it’s all connected this week and think carefully about how your decisions affect others.

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Before you can absorb the beauty around you, you must actually have beauty around you. You’re so creative this week that when your environment fails to make its loveliness readily apparent, you’ll use your imagination to come up with a context in which that beauty exists. This is your gift, and you’ll share it.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Pretending to know — well that’s just basic, common human folly. You could even make an argument that it’s a normal part of the learning process. Sometimes you don’t feel like being the one with the questions. You just want to fit in and figure it out on the fly. And that’s exactly what you’ll wind up doing this week.

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

The important projects may not be very fun. In fact, key efforts may seem to drag on and on. Keep telling yourself that substantial results don’t happen overnight. The big deals take patience. Be in it for the long game and try to find an entertaining way to focus in the meantime.   

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Tact and diplomacy will take you far, and in fact will be the key lessons of the week. These things are best learned in the heated moments, either by getting it wrong, or getting it right — likely both. Be gentle and kind with yourself either way, and of course with the others, too. The point is, we’re all just learning here. 

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Much of the week will be devoted to empowering others by supporting their endeavors, echoing their values and generally validating what’s important to them. You know how to do this because it was shown to you — or because it wasn’t, and you learned how to be a better friend on your own.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Scars show the places where life met us and we dared to tangle with it. Love your scars this week, especially the invisible ones. You’re not only stronger for them but also more creative, resourceful, communicative and, best of all, empathetic. This week’s wins will be related to what scarred you.   

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You have a talent you can spend lavishly this week, sharing it like it’s a cherished secret, splashing it wide as headlines, tossing it out like beads from a Mardi Gras float. This is how your talent will grow inside you, and also how it will spread across the minds and hearts of the people who can appreciate it. 

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

The gifts that deepen the heart usually come wrapped inside a struggle, tied up with the bow of loss or disappointment. Usually. But every once in a while it’s a rare strike of electric understanding or intense beauty that deepens us, and it comes to us exactly as it is, no wrapping, just a pure present. Enjoy.
