ARIES (March 21-April 19)
No one can hurt you like your own expectations can. That’s why you’re trying to get better at the life-enhancing art and science of setting reasonable expectations. Your life is a grand experiment. Observe, make a guess about what will happen, and then test your prediction. If you get it wrong, just guess again.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You are already incredibly special so you don’t have to do anything outrageously impressive to be loved. Live like you have nothing to prove. Ordinary choices can make you happy. Even as you do the most down-to-earth thing, the infinite sky above embraces you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Teaching isn’t telling. People will forget what they hear, but they won’t forget what they were involved with. You have knowledge to impart this week, and the more immersive your lesson, the better your students will retain it. Also, don’t be afraid to stand back and let people learn some things for themselves.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
You’re not gullible, but you’re very open-minded. Salespeople will sense this, and you’ll be pitched to often this week. It’s fun to be sold — to believe that an item or an idea is going to change your life for the better — and even more fun to be sold on something that’s affordable. Just hold out for what really works.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Excellent manners are your passport to the world. The civility you apply in this week’s dealings will command attention and inspire reciprocity. On a related note, before you get out your wallet, consider that luxurious things can also be free things. For instance, you’ll enjoy the finery of words and beautiful social gestures.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Make note of your accomplishments and concerns in a journal. It will not only give you a sense of achievement, it will also clear your head so you don’t unload unnecessary data onto other people. Others don’t need to know the details of your world, but keeping track privately will be an essential habit for success.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Because what you say about others reveals much about you, you’re careful to keep your talk positive. This comes easily to you, but what’s more difficult is steering clear of other people’s less-complimentary narratives. Excusing yourself is always an option, and you won’t regret walking away from negativity.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
You’ll be physically attuned to the world and to yourself. You’ll learn about people by watching them move. Bodies move according to the mind. Posture and social positioning will go hand in hand. Good posture begins with self-respect. Chin up, neck long, eye contact — this will lead to the making of a deal this week.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Avoid psychic leaning. You’re strong and getting stronger. The point is not to be a one-person show and handle the world without help. Rather, the aim is to be your best. It’s the same in sports as it is in life. The strong players are in the big leagues. The stronger you are, the better the team you’ll attract.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
There are those who make the mistake of choosing an aloof air as a way of seeming better than others. It’s shortsighted, shallow and lazy. When you encounter such behavior, you’ll be rewarded for rising above the nonsense. Remain open and accommodating. Much good will come of it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Feelings are a neutral form of information. There is nothing right about a feeling. There is nothing wrong about a feeling. This week, accept whatever feelings come up without judgment. From this neutral place, you can work with your emotions, taking the information they provide and using it to your advantage.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
If you want someone to remember a number, you recite just the number that matters, not the entire numeric system. This is how you should approach all dealings this week. The temptation to overinstruct and overstate things will be strong. Resist! The simple, direct approach will work brilliantly.
