ARIES (March 21-April 19)

It is possible to train yourself away from worry, and unlike some kinds of learning, this is a training that is impervious to technological, economic and social trends. It will, in fact, serve you for all of your days. Take the first steps this week. Practice turning your mind to bright, hopeful and beautiful thoughts.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Because of the strong intensity level of your activities, you may not remember a lot about this week, which is why record-keeping will be so important. Your enjoyment will be thorough; your work will be concentrated; your thought processes will break through former comprehension.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

There will be times this week when you’re so immersed in the moment that you help everyone around you get into the flow. You radiate beyond what you know. Did you even know you were shining? Love and contribution produce a kind of light undetected by eyes, though everyone can see it. 


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

It’s the kind of week that makes you think deep thoughts. You’re more curious. You want to know how things work and why. You want to know who is running it and where it’s going. You want to know your purpose inside all of it. The best part about this is that you’ll come up with many satisfying answers.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

It’s much easier to move through life without the static of unhelpful thoughts pulling in all sorts of unwanted impediments. This week’s approach could have the effect of an anti-static device: a little humor, a little bewilderment, and you’ll find that you’re sailing through the things that used to be hard for you. 


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Self-control is a tricky matter. It can be as straightforward as telling yourself what to do and then doing it, or as complicated as putting together a marching band of cats. This week your ability to lead yourself will depend largely on your environment. Arrange it so it’s easy to win and/or impossible to lose. 


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

The honors and awards you’ve earned will be a shortcut to respect. People see you’ve been successful, and they won’t make you work so hard to prove yourself up front. Of course, the best people give respect to all without requiring rigorous qualification, and judge people based on what’s exchanged moment to moment.   


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

The “point of no return” describes the phenomenon in which it’s easier to move forward than to turn back. Every journey has such a point, whether a journey of distance or ambition or a relationship. Note that often the heart senses the point of no return much better than the map does. 


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

There are plenty of people who equate communication with agreement — a harmful belief. It is in the circumstance of (SET ITAL)disagreement(END ITAL) that respectful, thorough communication is most necessary. Those who are conscientious in disagreeable situations will be richly rewarded.   


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Because no one likes to be trapped, you’re sometimes afraid to make a commitment that’s too far reaching, long term or constrictive. However, this is a week when a strong commitment will actually help you out. It will pull you forward, erase uncertainty and make you feel and act more powerful.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A wet blanket is useful for putting out a small fire, which is why someone who puts the damper on hot ideas and times is sometimes called this. This week, you’ll prefer not to live dangerously. You’ll like the blankets warm and the fires contained in fireplaces, so that when things do heat up, no one has to be the hero or the bad guy. 


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Success at one thing will require you to drop all else that is competing for your focus. This could be tough for you! What will make it easier? Believing in your goal. Bring even just 5 percent more belief and conviction to your aim and you’ll be amazed at how much progress you can make this week.
