ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Graceful patience is your preferred tone, and you wear it beautifully this week as you manage all you’re responsible for, take on new interests and excuse the old knowing that even the most cherished and best-maintained things will wear out with extended use. It’s nobody’s fault; it’s just the nature of life.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

The week gets off to a slow start, giving you time to gather your strength and re-focus on your purpose — or choose a new one, as the case may be. Only you know how right the path feels to you at this point. Don’t worry; you’ll make up for lost time. After Wednesday, every step you take will be equal to 10. 


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

You’ll grow in strength and capability, partly because you refuse to be any more dependent on others than is typical for you and humans in general. You’ll put in the effort to learn how to do certain things. You may still, in the end, wind up paying others to do these things, but it won’t be because you don’t know how. 


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

A lot of times what we need to do is actually easier than what we’re doing now — the steps are easier, the living they create is easier — but it’s the change that’s difficult. Letting go of who you were in the old pattern is scary but worth it. It may help to start the new pattern before letting go of the old one.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

If you know how to use it, jealousy can be one of the most direct lines to your happiness. Because jealousy shows you what you want (as opposed to what society tells you you’re supposed to want). Work on translating the message of jealousy in a positive way so you can use it to inform your own plan and journey.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A friend who makes you feel free to talk about what’s bothering you is an excellent friend indeed. And if you also can talk about what’s good in your life without worry of seeming boastful or inspiring envy, even better. Listen to the feedback such a person gives you this week, as it will be quite valuable.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

There’s a mystery. You’re not going to get to the bottom of it this week, no matter how you go about it. But if you play your cards right (as in, pay attention, follow all leads, act on your gut feelings), you’ll get to the next layer of this. And it’s far more interesting the deeper you go.


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

There’s a time for every emotion. Even the really downer ones like regret and resentment can be productive in certain ways at certain times. But if you find yourself returning to any particular emotion too much, like it’s a habit or an addiction, it’s not time to favor that emotion so much as it’s time to get help with it.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

It’s true that some people you know are better storytellers than others. More than once this week you’ll find yourself with the ones that go on and on, with no point in sight. Once you realize that what they’re really after is some much needed attention and love, you’ll know just what to do.  


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The hours go by regardless of how they get filled. Days of boredom can be more stressful than days packed with action, even if the action isn’t of a favorite variety. This week, you need downtime but not too much of it. Long rests will actually be irritating to you. In general, you’ll be happier if you’re a little busy.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Compelled to do something that doesn’t make sense? Is the reason why obscured, even to you? Maybe this thing isn’t good for you, but you still want it. Take a breath and look deeper at the need this thing could be fulfilling. Talk about it, write about it, face it with boldness. You’re onto something important here.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Is it greedy to you strive to get both your needs (SET ITAL)and(END ITAL) your wants met? In this week’s case, “greed” will be defined by selfishness, and much will depend on how well your wants match up favorably with the wants of others. If your wants do not come at another person’s expense, mutual satisfaction and joy will be real.
