ARIES (March 21-April 19)

There’s a type of work that’s like a fever. Your focus is so intent on the task that you can think of nothing else. The rest of the world disappears. And three or 10 hours later, you emerge feeling as though mere minutes have passed. Engrossing work like this is a gift you’ll be blessed by this week.

 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Your dear ones know more about you than anyone, and that’s why it’s surprising for them to see you around other people. Then they realize there are even more sides to you than they knew… new, sparkling ones. They may get jealous. Ultimately it’s good for the relationship. The more facets, the shinier the jewel. 

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

You follow life’s recipe exactly, and yet results will vary. Different day, different weather, differently sourced ingredients… and no two people can do anything in life exactly alike. Because there are way too many variables that would be impossible to control, why worry about it at all? Just “do you” and watch what happens. 

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

A leisurely pace will suit you mighty fine this week, and when it’s your turn to take the floor, don’t speed things up. Go even slower. When you relax, everyone around you will relax. If you rush to the point, no one will have a chance to really understand it. Besides, they all want to go on the journey with you.

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

There’s nothing like the thrill of putting something into the world that wasn’t there before. Bonus: You don’t have to worry about the uniqueness of your work. Everything you do will have a strong version of your energetic stamp on it. Also, don’t worry about getting paid. You will! Focus on the work and it all falls into place. 

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’re gloriously organized and effective because you know that if you weren’t, the same amount of energy would go out, but you’d get half the results. And since you’ve a knack for organized thinking this week, you might help out a friend with a different natural style. Systems, habits, practices… that’s the theme. 

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

We all wish for a fairy godmother type to make a confusing or dysfunctional part of our work go smoothly. That highly effective magician is within you this week. Yes, you are so capable! The only thing missing is a bit of training. Instead of looking for a godmother, look for a teacher. This will be worth the money, by the way.  

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

If only you knew that you could help people without getting taken. “Taken” can mean a loss of money, wasted time, ill-placed affection, gifts misused, energy depleted or being generally taken advantage of. Good news: You’ll set effective boundaries and structures that allow you to be generous and yet protected. 

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Those who love best are the ones who understand that they can never own love. But you know that already. You’ve tried so many times! Like the moon, the fullness of joy and affection waxes and wanes. You’re at your graceful best when you appreciate its many states and don’t try to force things.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Desperate times may call for desperate measures, but these times don’t fit the description. Your even, stable, levelheaded approach will make you a leader. Others may try to stir up drama and create problems just so they can heroically save the day. You’ll do better by staying real. Ignore them.

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Once upon a time you lost control, and you’re still holding on to the shame of all that messy emotion. But what happened back there was necessary. No regrets. Something was released from the depths. You’re better for it, more settled. This week you’ll begin to build something great on the improved foundation. 

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’ve glimpsed greatness — embodied a unique state of grace and mastery for extended moments — but you’ve not been able to sustain it. Hint: It’s not sustainable. Life is change. Don’t lament, stress or feel less-than because you can’t always be golden. Instead, work toward getting stronger, ever stronger.
