ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Each action you take has a reason behind it. The reason may be logical or whimsical, mysterious or faulty, but whatever it is, it’s there. Nothing that happens is unmotivated. This is the principle that helps you figure out yourself and others. You’ll uncover hidden motivations and understand the world better. 


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You may set out alone at points this week, but you won’t ever really be. You may physically be the only one in your group, but your group isn’t strictly physical. The minds that went before you, the ideas you built on, the family you got your story and genetics from… you carry and represent them wherever you go.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

You may worry whether your work is good enough, and you can take that as a sign that you are paying attention to the right things. Think about it, and then keep working. These issues will solve themselves in time. Some will take longer than others, but if you keep working, you’ll eventually master them all.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

The amount of time, money and effort you spend feeding yourself and thinking about feeding yourself may seem blown out of proportion this week, but food is at the root of your well-being. Your consideration will pay off. Changes in approach are coming for you. Much good comes of cooking for yourself. 


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have the eye and heart of an artist, and the way you interact with others aligns with your unique view of them as interesting and beautiful creatures, worthy of your respect, honor and, to some degree, your protection. You’ve a highly developed sense of responsibility and will give your care in all directions.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The choice isn’t to go right or left, to open door one or door three; the choice is to move or stay stuck. So don’t stress about which way you get unstuck. Just start wiggling and the way will clear itself. Act instinctively. Expect mistakes. You’ll deal with them. Mistakes are among the most creative forces in the world. 


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

To make distinctions between what’s good and what’s better is a function of noticing the world closely. Next come new developments in your taste and an approach based on this — a personal agenda that gets mixed into the agenda of the world in ways both brilliant and attractive. 


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

You are a force. It’s easy to forget. The boat captain doesn’t see the waves he causes when he’s focused on the journey ahead. It’s happening behind and off to the sides. Some amount of faith will be necessary. If you need permission to believe in yourself, cut this out and call it your permission slip. 


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The silly things are worthy of your attention — the frivolous things, the jokes, the celebrations, the details that no one seems to care about but you. These are worthy pursuits. What’s trivial and operating on scales too small for many to notice will be the key that unlocks a wondrous rush. 


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Ownership is a cultural concept. It differs by race, gender, socioeconomics and more. It changes through time, and will even change over the course of a single day. You’ll notice this as you grapple with what is really yours, what you have control over, and what you are ready to let go. 


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Everyone needs to feel powerful in his or her own realm. Even those taking a low status or choosing a small situation may be motivated by power, as reducing the size of a personal environment is one way to become bigger. Accepting that the need for control is universal will make this week go better for all.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your skills will improve, your output will increase, and it will take less time and money for you to get the same result. The best part is that you’ll become more confident and less preciousness about each part of the process, so the feeling around your efforts will lighten up considerably. You’re heading toward mastery.
