ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You’re on your way to wholeness. Give a hard, clear look to the thing that hurts you. This is the first step to healing: an assessment of the issue that neither dramatizes nor fantasizes. Once you clearly see what is, ideas will start coming to mind about what to do about it. The breakthrough is imminent.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
It’s pretty simple this week as you’re governed by nature’s sovereign masters, pain and pleasure. The way that brings the greatest happiness will be right. Take the long view. Many things that bring short-term pleasure are harmful in the long range. Seek that which will enrich you and yours over time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
There have been instances in which you have been greatly served — maybe even saved — by the objective advances of science and technology. And yet, these schools will not help you improve your quality of life this week. The lessons will come from the schools of love, spirituality, philosophy and art.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
People who either don’t have as much to do or don’t have as vigilant and thorough a thought process as yours will be generous with advice along the lines of “Don’t worry; be happy.” Almost infuriating, isn’t it? And yet, the simple things you do to help yourself be a bit lighter will make an enormous difference this week.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
To stay buoyant on the tides of life you need to be somewhat waterproof. This week, you’ve a good sense about the things that keep your ship slick and strong. Avoid agents that might wear down and eat away at the fiber of your ship. What sinks a ship is not the water that’s outside; it’s the water that gets in.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It is said that yesterday and tomorrow are the two days in which nothing can be done. But just because they happen at a non-actionable time doesn’t make them unimportant. Living is building. All of life exists in context. The setup matters. Yesterday informs us. Memory drives us. Our hope for the future pulls us into it. Your fluid approach to time will be the crowning achievement of your week.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Get congruent with what you think, feel and imagine. When you think, feel and imagine three different things, life will feel cumbersome. Forward movement will take tremendous effort, like trying to roll on triangular wheels. When you think, feel and imagine the same thing, you’ll have ease, momentum and power.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
You may not feel, at the end of the week, that you have won your battles. But if you know you have fought in all of them, you will have the satisfaction and confidence that comes with self-respect. Showing up is half of it. The other half is doing your best, which will be enough.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Dogs appear to readily accept, even celebrate, the strengths and limitations of their canine existence. It’s true of all the animals, and you’ll find solace and spiritual richness in observing the animal kingdom embodying natural instincts — a reminder that you don’t have to be anything more than you are.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You’ll lay the foundation for a new chapter in your personal life. This has to do with establishing different rhythms, patterns and habits. The hardest part is the beginning, when it takes willpower to make a change. But over the course of the next few weeks you’ll start to feel that this takes no effort at all; it’s just the new you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Don’t let yourself go soft. Get in touch with your skills. Test and challenge yourself, if only to remember what you have. You’re like a bird who landed on a broken branch. There’s no reason to fear the branch failing underneath you, because you have wings. You’ll succeed when you remember to use what you have.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
The most important choices you’ll make this week will have to do with your own individuality. It would be so easy to become the person your family, friends or boss wants you to be. But this is not the real you, and it will make you tired and unsatisfied. The soul-searching you do to find your true path will be worth it.
