ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This week it will be so easy for you to execute the task more or less the same way as last time, or the same way as everyone else does it, that you really need more of a challenge to keep it interesting. Impose this challenge on yourself. There will be rich rewards as you elevate a slice of daily life to the level of art form. 


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

For better or worse, the present always exists alongside an unknowable future. And while things could tilt any which way — toward bliss or catastrophe or anything in between — the peaceful way is not to project too much. If you must make an assumption, lean toward a story about a tomorrow you’d love to live in.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

What you appear to be reaching for is likely only a representation of what you’re really going for. For instance, you buy the product that promises to make you attractive when what you really want is to be made important, or loved. To realize the bottom-line truth of your motives will be liberation.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

The real deal is more expensive. It’s more work. It takes longer. And given the whole picture of your life, the real deal isn’t always worth it. In many cases this week, for the purpose you’re seeking to fulfill, a substitute will work just fine. But not in all cases. In matters of friendship and love, only the real deal will do.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You think you’re going for simple approval, but it may be truer that you’re seeking approval that’s historical. It was withheld from you way back then, and this has been a long time coming. It’s why you care more about the events than seems appropriate. And it’s also why you’ll do your best work and be richly rewarded.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

No matter how much a person knows, it’s an extremely small amount of data compared with how much is unknown. This is true for people of all levels of intellect, even geniuses. The difference between intellectual brightness and dullness is often simple curiosity, which starts with admitting that you don’t know. It will be your strength this week. 


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

It’s awkward when adults marvel at how tall children have become, as though it happened through some sort of effort of the unwitting child. The easiest praise to accept is merit-based, because there’s something to talk about there. Process is a discussion, and one you’ll be great at carrying on this week.  


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Finding the good path is both easy and simple, though it does require more intentionality than simply falling in line. Desire, preference, attraction and curiosity will be the magnets of your compass. 


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The adventurer in you will lead the way in the early week, charging forward with ideas both practical and offbeat. Boldness will be rewarded. You might know what looks interesting to you, but you won’t know what you really like until you try it.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Most family and friend feuds happen over trivial matters, though you might be surprised how many feuds at every level are started in the same way — even wars. It’s why good communication and attention to the needs and expectations of others will be the gentle, small solution that averts humungous strife. 


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Life is not a thing you get right or wrong. It’s an ocean of navigational moments. You’ll bob right and left, responding to an instinct you might feel would better be defined as survival than morality. Later in the week, things will calm down enough for you to take the captain’s wheel and steer deliberately.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Most of life is a nonrefundable situation — a complete gamble! That’s why it takes courage. To keep putting in the effort in full knowledge that you might not get a single thing out of it… that’s a job for the wholehearted, which you definitely are. This week the odds are overwhelmingly in your favor.
