ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Connections are the real gold in your life. When you’re hanging out with friends physically, virtually, conversationally — whatever form it takes — it may feel like you’re not accomplishing anything productive. The truth is that there is little in life that is more important or valuable than the bonds you build in those moments.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is a lucky social cycle. Your relationships are just getting better. It’s partly because you’re figuring out how to communicate more effectively. It’s also because you’re making an effort to know more people, and you’re meeting people who match your mind and depth of heart and share some of your values.


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

You know what it feels like to be on the outside or at least to think that you are. For the most part, being on the outside or the inside is just a perception — and a perception that can change at that! Rise above the situation and figure out the game. Also, recognize that such games are unnecessary in loving situations.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Be slightly more assertive about getting your needs met and wishes heard. This may have to do with setting up your daily life to serve your own rhythms. Don’t let the others dictate your timing. You’ve an excellent instinct for setting a pace that others will fall in line with, and this will be healthier for all.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

The master of ceremonies calls out the acts and seems to be in charge of the whole circus, but of course, the most powerful one is not wearing a tall hat. People come to see the lions. Special precautions are taken to cater to, learn and contain a lion. A lion’s power isn’t shown in barking and promises. Their power just is.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

An abundance of inner confidence has you steering away from triviality. You will be mightily effective as you rise above the pettiness you come across. It will take compassion, which comes easily to you, especially when you realize that people who are obsessing over trivial matters are dealing with a deeper lack.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Strong feelings are welling up in you, and they need expression. Don’t pick and choose what gets to be aired. Find a safe place or a safe method in which you can give everything air. Blow out your emotions through talk, movement, art or other methods.   


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Once upon a time, you did certain things to cope and survive that you wouldn’t choose now, but you also recognize that you didn’t know any better. You’ll extend that compassion to others this week, and everyone will be raised by what you learn together in the process.  


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your rules for yourself are far more stringent than any imposed by society and your demands of yourself go beyond that required by any authority or partner. Are you being too tough on yourself? Unlikely. This week, you’ll find the high bar motivating and, ultimately, it’s what puts you in a league of your own.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Change is the aim. Change won’t be fast or easy. It won’t be glamorous or particularly fun. Change will be what it usually is… a series of experiments. Are you willing to trudge through lots of different methods until you find one that works for you? If so, you will find success that lasts. Keep going until you do. 


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The right choice isn’t always the feel-good choice. No endeavor or relationship is going to make you happy all of the time, and if it could, then it wouldn’t be good for you. Choose the endeavor that you’re willing to suffer for. Choose the person that you won’t mind being hurt by. These are the choices that will fortify you.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

A growth mindset is admirable and appropriate. But if you put too much focus on becoming who you want to be, it’s a rejection of who you are right now. You’ll get the most mileage out of your desire to improve when you make sure to accept, love and care for yourself exactly as you are right now.
