ARIES (March 21-April 19)

The obstacles are the path. So hop on up, and skip from one to the next. You have that kind of gravity-defying energy this week, mostly because you won’t take things too seriously or personally. Your refusal to attach to negativity keeps you buoyant and effective.

 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You started this project out the right way. You had a goal, and you planned backward, figuring out what it would take and how long. But several of the steps have turned out to take longer and be costlier than you expected. Take heart and soldier on. Adjust the plan. This is the part where you get to be tenacious. 

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21) 

You charmed your audience — no small accomplishment. It required natural abilities and the intelligence to line them all up effectively. Now that they’re interested and you’re “in,” so to speak, the hard work begins. What will make it worthwhile? Get clear about what’s in it for them and what’s in it for you. 

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22) 

Too many choices result in decision paralysis. If you must offer options to people this week, offer only three. And if you must choose from an array of options, make your criteria so narrow that only a few options fit within it. Things to consider: What would please you? What would do the most good for the most people?

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You can’t stand in your own shadow, and maybe that’s why you sometimes seek out large, looming structures you can hide in the shade of. Just recognize the dynamic for what it is — and keep an eye on your tendencies — because there’s an opportunity this week that will require you to step out into the light. 

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

At times you’ve equated success with having a bunch of supportive people around to understand and encourage you. Though relationships are important, they are not essential to the kind of success on the table for you this week. One good friend is more than enough for this journey, and that friend is you.  

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Don’t discount the value of your taste, creativity and general worldview, as these things will make all of the difference to your work this week. Anyone with money can buy what’s in the brochure, but it’s what you do when you don’t have the money that will be a most remarkable and tasteful feat. 

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

When you get there you may realize there’s no there. This is why it’s best to savor all those dreams, plans, decisions and preparations: They are the best part. Help those who are younger than you to enjoy getting ready for things, and don’t tell them about “there.” They’ll find out soon enough. 

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) 

You don’t have to make a mistake to learn from it. You can save yourself time and money this week by learning from the mistakes of others. It’s a matter of finding the right “others.” Get as specific as possible about your problem and then seek mentorship (which can come in many forms, including books.)

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) 

You’re (SET ITAL)supposed(END ITAL) to want to do a lot of things, like see friends, go to exciting, beautiful places, enjoy times with family — the kinds of things presented as “fun” in television commercials. What you actually want to do may vary. Just because there are no commercials about it, that doesn’t mean it’s not valid fun. 

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You don’t want to be wasteful, and yet holding on to things that you don’t need, want or extract any joy from is, in its own way, also wasteful. It’s a waste of life and energy, and it prevents you from going where you can contribute the best of you. So let go this week. Better things are to come. 

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) 

You’re pushed by your drive and pulled by your goals. Now all you have to do to be productive is to get rid of the superfluous things that distract you and hold you back. Like a racecar driver reducing drag on a fast ride, you’ll figure out what’s creating resistance, streamline and excel like you know you can.
