ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Who’s to say when thinking becomes overthinking? Past the surface, commonly accepted levels, beyond the level of detail and particulars, and then through the realm of the uncomfortable and absurd, there’s a place where the best ideas live. The ticket for this journey: curiosity, imagination and courage. 


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Your wish list fills up this week. Can you afford it all? Just remember, ideas are more valuable than dollars. Creativity is its own kind of blank check. Imagination is the elevator that launches ordinary humdrum experience into the excitement and expansive view at the sky-high level of life.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Disagreement creates a trench to keep the unwanted out of your mental and emotional territory. It’s good for some situations, but not for personal relationships, as the chasm keeps the whole person away, not just the part with which you don’t agree. Consider coming to an understanding. Could you agree to disagree? 


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Acquaintances often treat one another better than people who are very close. Familiarity wears down the varnish of manners and public persona. That’s why the best relationships include extra efforts toward tenderness and affection to counteract the natural emotional erosion. Think: sunscreen for the soul.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

The ocean is the drop, and the drop is the ocean. You have at least a little bit of what you need but you need more of it in order to fulfill your vision. So this is about growing what you have instead of questing for something new. Success is a matter of scale. What are the conditions that will nurture your growth? 


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Instead of looking for love, you’re loving what’s in and around you. Instead of wondering what’s next, you’re seeing what’s now. This week shows you engaged in your surroundings and in the lives of the people you happen to find yourself among. This week features very little planning and a lot of spontaneous fun.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You’re growing tired of hearing complaints and will avoid discourse dominated by negativity. That’s not to say you’re totally free of the behavior yourself. While focused on the positive, you do see what needs improvement. You’ll put time into untying knots, greasing wheels and smoothing the way. 


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Regardless of how much you enjoy social interaction, it uses energy. Talking, listening, reacting, processing… it’s an expenditure. After three hours, even a seasoned extrovert grows tired. You’ve much to accomplish on your own this week, so you’ll pace the social activities accordingly.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

For everything you do, from taking a trip to making a simple phone call, you like to be prepared. Your confidence level depends on how well you’ve set yourself up with the right sort of supplies and options, even if those “options” are just conversation starters or a good way of telling your side of the story. 


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your secret power is the power of listening. You’ll do it so well, you’ll hear what people are saying, what they mean, what they are not saying, and even what they are hiding or compensating for. There is no better advantage than the one you get from the depth of knowledge that comes of excellent listening. 


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Because you sense and empathize with the feelings others, you need to take extra care to understand the boundaries of your responsibility. To distinguish your problem from theirs, take a step back for an objective view. Remind yourself that each person is responsible for his or her own happiness. 


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Interruptions abound, many of which can’t be helped. But if you find yourself being interrupted by the same person more than once, kindly bring attention to it. This person probably isn’t even aware of the unintentional disrespect implied by his or her actions. Enforcing your own standards is always a winning move.
