ARIES (March 21-April 19)

This week may have you wondering how you got here. Wonder no more. You are the best person for the job; that’s why you were chosen. Of course, the best person isn’t always the most qualified. The best person is the one in the position to do a good job. That’s you, so just do it.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You can’t make a calculated guess about incalculable things. The risks that offer themselves to you this week have rather unquantifiable stakes that involve things such as feelings and aesthetics. Because you won’t be able to deduce the odds of success through logical means, let your heart and intuition do the math.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Your support system isn’t a “set it and forget it” situation. Even if you were lucky enough to be born into a group of supportive people, there’s still a level of maintenance that’s a constant in relationships. This week, you’ll be adding to your team, in casual but nonetheless significant ways.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Relationships are built over time. You’ll really click with a person. You may reach a certain social “destination” very quickly. It may seem you’ve found a shortcut. Alas, there are no shortcuts. You’ll eventually have to go back over the territory you missed. But that’s good, too, because it will be a pleasure.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

In any given day, you play many roles. In some situations, you’re the top dog, and in others, you’re a low servant. It’s your goal to do your best in each role, the status of the role being irrelevant to your approach and performance. There is power in every position, and you will leverage it to tremendous effect.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

When you’re being led to an option by people who would benefit from your choosing it, it’s pretty tricky to see other available options. Yet there are many. Events of the week will gently shake you awake so you can take them all in. There’s one direction that plays to your strengths, and there’s no good reason not to take it.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

It will be good to limit the time you spend in areas where there is clearly no definitive answer, no solid solution in sight. Perhaps this has to do with matters of love and politics. The philosophizing could go on for a long while, as is par for the course in the land of the theoretical. This week, your happiness depends on results that can be counted.


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Language is power, leverage, a tool and a marker of where we are with ourselves and the world. Although it can be difficult to herd up your thoughts and get them marching in your preferred direction, it’s far less difficult to monitor your language, steer it from negative bias and focus it toward your own empowerment.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You aim to apply wisdom and reason across the board, from the smallest decision of which ketchup brand to buy to the big decision of where to spend your leisure and with whom. The latter choice could significantly alter everyone’s course, as the role of friendly influence cannot be underestimated.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Studies estimate that it takes 200 hours in a relationship with another person to become a close friend, which is why, when closeness is what you desire, putting in the time is a must. But you don’t stop there. You do it in style. You’ll find creative and interesting ways to connect with others this week.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This week, you’re able to get inwardly honest about how you feel around different people. You’ll notice things you didn’t before. For instance, you haven’t always chosen to be around people who make you feel safe and comfortable. Make your own comfort a priority and life gets easier across the board.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Who is helping you solve the problems of life? Not the same person who sent you on a wild chase last time. In the end, that felt like the opposite of help. You’re wiser now, and besides, you just don’t have time for it. The answers you need will come in an intelligent, expert and customized form.
