ARIES (March 21-April 19)

No person can dictate the pleasures of another. Pleasures are born of a complicated animal process and may be influenced but never commanded. This week illustrates principles of pleasure quite well. You’ll be surprised by what others like and by your own delights, too, which are not always so predictable. 


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

In the days before Uber and Lyft, a drive to the airport was something of a friendship test. Only the truest friends would agree to be hassled with the task. Now the tests are different, but they exist. This week you’ll be both the tested and the judge. When it matters to you, you’ll pass with flying colors. 


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

The more successful you become, the more options you have. But what do more options really get you? You can still only do one thing at a time. The only options that matter are the ones that are best for you. This week shows you getting very focused and specific, leaning into what’s right for you and excelling. 


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Everything you do is an investment. If a monetary investment turns a loss, you can always make more money. But time is a nonrenewable resource. It’s crucial that you spend time on what matters, feels right to you and brings good into the world. You’re getting better at identifying worthy pursuits.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

There are a lot of things you could do to help out, so why not just do the thing that you’re great at? Your highest point of contribution will be unique, and something you really enjoy giving. Take the time to figure this out, and your days fill with the things that really matter to you. 


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’ll communicate very clearly this week — not so much with you your words, but with all that goes into you being you. The truer you are to yourself and the better you take care of your own needs, the more people understand you. They’ll go out of their way to help you and to be a part of your world.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Pay attention to how certain people influence you. There are those who will make you want to be better. When you’re around them, you rise to the occasion, surpassing your own expectations of yourself. There are others who, for reasons that are hard to put your finger on, bring out a less-than-ideal side of you. 


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Opportunities aren’t always so opportune. What poses as an “opportunity” could actually be a demand on your time that diffuses your energy and causes you to have less attention on the things that matter to you. Narrow your focus and your experience widens and becomes much deeper, too.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You can love a person you need, and need a person you love, but loving and needing are not the same thing and shouldn’t be confused. Pay attention the nuances of special relationships. Make sure the give-and-take is balanced and accounts for emotional work as well as other contributions.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

While trying to distinguish the signal from the noise, you’ll understand that it’s almost all noise. That’s good to know. It means the actual work you have to do is a lot less than you originally expected. In fact, most of the work is figuring out what work is essential. Once you’re done with that, life gets much easier. 


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

An image change is in the works for you, and it starts with spiritual levity. This won’t be found through meditation, prayer or sacred practice. Rather, you’ll get there through the handling of practical matters. As life gets cleaner and more organized, your aura becomes more radiant.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

In many matters, you’ve been better off going forward instead of waiting around to be invited, assigned or permitted to do so. However, in the matters of leadership you will be faced with this week, requesting and receiving permission to advise is the key to making you effective and influential.
