ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Children are taught the consequences of life through if/then statements. “If you don’t eat your vegetables, then you don’t get dessert.” In adult life, the “ifs” stack up against “thens” that are varied and unpredictable. Living in peace requires getting comfortable with uncertainty, something you’ll work on this week.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
There are no drama-free movies about wonderful lives. Even “It’s a Wonderful Life” is about a man on the brink. But you don’t want your life to be good on film. You want it to be good — period. For maximum peace, control your media intake and lower your tolerance of unnecessary emotional intensity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
You’ll face negativity head-on and give it an optimistic spin. There’s no room for blame, pity or self-sabotage. Perhaps these types of reactions to life served a purpose in the past, but you’ve long-since outgrown them. Now, they don’t fit and are just not that interesting to you anyway. You’re building in a new direction.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
The good news is that when you already know that what you’re doing isn’t getting you the results you want, it reduces the risk inherent in trying something different. In a sense, you have nothing to lose by changing your approach to a problem. Brilliant and affordable solutions can be found with minimal effort.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Reactions take time. Fast reactions take fractions of a second, and there are reactions that take an entire lifetime. Great peace is born of letting go of the timing of other people. Life is suddenly less stressful when you allow everyone, including yourself, to go at an individually suitable pace.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
People rarely move from “no” to “yes” without passing through the land of “maybe.” So don’t push too hard. Rather, nudge the ideas along, letting them meander into possibility. When what you want seems too far away from where you are right now, a brainstorm around “what if?” will land you in “maybe” land right quick.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Something can be an honest reflection of you without being all of you. You’re a complex person and there’s a wide range of you. You get to present yourself to create a desired perception. Not everyone needs or deserves to get all your layers. Be strategic. The more considerate you are, the more successful you’ll be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
You don’t have to be co-dependent to see how another person’s opinions can keep you from what you feel driven to do. Some resistance to influence is advised this week. Ultimately, you’re confident, strong and brave enough to pursue the life that is calling to you. No other version of life will do.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You have the power to remove a barrier if you so choose. The question becomes, is it wise? What is being protected here? If you’re feeling hesitant to go all the way with a new idea, maybe there’s a good reason. You don’t have to be able to articulate that reason for it to be sound. Trust your instincts.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Having knowledge doesn’t really give anyone an edge. In fact, in some instances knowing more only causes more stress. For knowledge to do any good, it must be applied. This will be your success key of the week. You’ll put what you learn into practice and enjoy immediate results.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Someone will open a door and provide you with what you need to progress. This isn’t a favor. You’ve either earned the opportunity, or the other person is making an investment in you they believe will pay off later. In the latter case, consider the obligation implied before you cross the threshold.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
As far as relationships go, it’s a season to go deep instead of wide. Getting to know familiar people even better, or differently, than you’re used to will bring satisfaction, gratitude and pleasure to your days. This will require a pattern interrupt and some excellent questions, followed by close listening.
