ARIES (March 21-April 19)

What is the difference between giving someone attention and giving someone close attention? Forget about them; think about you. The difference is your takeaway. Close attention leads to understanding, to learning and to the pride of earning an A. Cursory attention is a C+ at best.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Your mind is crafty. It can turn anything into something else. Just try it out. Think of an elephant, and then turn it into a fish. That was so easy, it barely took a second. Now change your mind about a limiting belief. This trick takes longer, but it will be easy once you accept that it will make you better.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

What is charm? You have it so innately that you don’t realize what you’re doing most of the time. It has to do with making the other person more important than you in the moment. It’s giving your whole self over. This will feel like a joy at times, and at other times, it will feel like a sacrifice. Both will serve you well this week. 


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

How a message is delivered will be very important. As you walk around in the world, you’ll be aware of the sending of signals, sometimes subtle, sometimes desperate. Signals can be big, micro, meta, manipulative, artistic, mysterious, calculated. Your attention to communication will not be unpaid. 


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Reasons — they are the solids the brain needs to function, the building blocks that allow for upward towers. Never underestimate the creativity alive in your brain. Reasons will be supplied. They don’t have to be true, make sense or be good ideas. And a hard “no” should be supplied to some of these reasons. 


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

There are people in your midst with talents you would like to have. Actually, you do have them. You just don’t realize it yet. Recognizing the talent in others is a sign that there’s something similar or complementary inside of you. And any time and effort you put into appreciation is the groundwork for what you might do.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Among the most significant triggers in the animal kingdom is the trigger of scent. This is why, in the ancient world, when events of significance were occurring, the government would fill the fountains with incense oils. You’ll be making an impression this week. Consider the power of scent.


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Some popular things are off-putting to you, and some things that offend others seem fine to you. This is just the concept of “fit” in action. What if you thought that nothing was wrong or right? Everything would just be a, “Yeah, that’s for me” or a, “No, that’s not for me.” The need to judge things is often an overstated one.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If you did a little too much of this or that, maybe the this or that is an area that you and yours need to put on the board under the category of “Things to work out.” We are all in this together after all.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Ideas bounce around in your head, and you want so badly to be able to pursue each one to its natural conclusion. Since that would be impossible, you’ll have fun sorting, prioritizing and letting some of the possibilities go. Later, when you look back, you’ll see this process as the most productive one.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Determination and resolve will pay off, though it would be nice not to feel like life is an uphill battle. Everything you do shouldn’t require massive expenditures of energy. You’ll assess your output with the aim of efficiency and doing things that contribute to the best parts of your life.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s said that the best things in life are free. Yet, we pay for things in our lives in different ways. So, it is just as true that nothing is free, as the next moment will cost a breath and our friendships will cost attention, and our love lives will cost expenditures of heart that we will gladly give, giving being most of the joy of life.
