ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Anyone who says you shouldn’t feel the way you do is ignorant about how feelings work. If you bottle feelings up, or are ashamed of them, they gain the wrong kind of power. Whichever emotion you happen to be experiencing is perfect. Accept it. Then choose your next action instead of reacting thoughtlessly.   

 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You’re a free thinker, unbound by opinions of your parents or peers. Your intellectual life will take precedence over other things you could be doing this week, and life-changing ideas will pop into your mind. You’ll choose a train of thought and ride it to a destination that others won’t even know exists until you report back.

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

You mostly abide by rules of etiquette, but something will come up that seems more important than smooth and mutually pleasing interactions. It’s probably something morally and/or socially incorrect, and it needs to be addressed. You’ll speak up — otherwise, how is the world going to change for the better?

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

The small problems will make you stronger this week. These issues won’t be scary, because there are readily knowable solutions that are accessible and affordable. There’s also a road map, and you’ll follow it. Then you’ll help the ones who are scared. You’ll teach them what you know.

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Don’t lose track of what’s important, meaningful and, above all, fun. Note that doing things that are (SET ITAL)supposed(END ITAL) to be fun, or that are fun to (SET ITAL)other people(END ITAL) doesn’t really count. What you need is the soul-rejuvenating power of fun that’s specific to you. And if you don’t know what that is yet, explore things this week.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

What concerns you most is spending your time well. It would be very easy to fritter it away on distractions that don’t mean too much to you, and so you are quite vigilant and proactive this week, choosing what to build and do with your hours. Surround yourself with good people. This will help matters enormously.

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

There’s comfort in knowing there’s an end to things and even greater ease in knowing approximately when that end will come. That’s why the restaurant gives wait-time projections and the movie gives running times. It’s also why you’ll communicate well with your group about timetables and other specific expectations.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

If you worry, it’s only because you care. It’s a signal that your life is meaningful. It’s an indication of deep intelligence. And if you can stop yourself from worrying — just change the channel in your brain and tell yourself to knock it off — well, that’s emotional genius. Because worry should be a signal, not a lifestyle.

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) 

If you don’t feel passionately about any particular task, topic or area, it’s normal. Passion isn’t ingrained; it’s developed. It happens as a result of trying to master a thing. The more you do, learn about and commit to a thing, the more passionate you’ll become about it.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) 

A reward that goes on too long defeats its purpose, which is to break up the work. This week, your anticipation of pleasure will be very strong, but the pleasure itself will be short. Good. It’s the perfect recipe for productivity. Brief pleasures will drive you ever forward. 

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) 

You don’t consciously set out to make a habit of doing things that nobody recommends, but you’ve picked up the odd habit along the way anyhow. Don’t blame yourself. Habits occur to fill a momentary need, and sometimes they fill it so well that they stick. Regardless, it’s now time to stop and make a change.

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

This week you won’t merely tolerate your struggles; you’ll embrace them in full knowledge that they are making your life better in the long run. You’re becoming more autonomous, capable and masterful. You’re becoming abler and more generous, especially in the love department.
