ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Few get excited to point a light into the basement to see what’s down there. In the literal sense, many only do it when they have to move. Some never do it at all. Figuratively, it’s the same. This week. you’ll ready yourself for change by dealing with past pain and whatever else is lodged in the subconscious.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

The rules of this fascinating endeavor aren’t published in a book, posted on the gym wall or imparted by officials. The rules are unwritten and complex. Expect to break them. You’ll do so brazenly, discreetly, on purpose and by accident. Chalk it up to the learning that’s necessary for this task (so worth it)!


GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Your manic relationship with creative pursuits is really working for you now, and you’ll make progress quickly. Around May, you’ll be able to apply this week’s findings to making money or attracting fascinating social prospects. Know that you are acquiring gold now and should account for and protect it accordingly.


CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Either your work feels good and right to you, or it doesn’t — and that is the only judgment you need to make. Additional considerations will be made by the people who need, use and value your contribution. So do your best, deliver it, and then take feedback. As for your own self-criticism, that’s just noise.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Grit is the small, loose particle that can have large, definite effectiveness, whether tossed in the eyes of an enemy, sprinkled to prevent a fall or thrown into the mix for the sake of traction. Grit is also the quality that gives you traction this week as you heave yourself with full determination at a difficult task.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The tone of an interaction is a collaborative creation but there is usually a leader. It doesn’t have to be you if you don’t feel up to it, but do not stand behind anyone who is going to do a lesser job of it than you would. Who can fulfill the potential of the moment? On the second thought, it probably does have to be you.  


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You’ll experience something so marvelous you’ll want to have it more — own it even. But go slowly in this. A large portion of the joy may very well be in the first 12 experiences, which can be rented. Possession has downsides beyond expense, including storage, maintenance and the attraction of jealous eyes.   


SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

There are battles going on that you are wise to sit out. Perhaps what’s at stake is inconsequential, or, more likely, not yours to fight. And what of the battle in your own heart? You can sit out even this one. The heart has its own rules and manner of sorting things out. Soon all will be settled for the highest good. 


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A support group will be key to your success. Marketers will put appealing groups of shining faces in your line of vision, and though all group affiliations have their cost, paying in dollars is only one way to go. The best group for you is asking for what you have plenty of — interest, attention heartfelt generosity. 


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s as though your mind is a party and there’s this one annoying party guest who persistently returns the conversation to a subject nobody is interested in. The thing to do is a reset, and then just don’t invite that guy. This can be accomplished by a pattern interrupt of some sort, ideally involving changed environs.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This heart that used to be lead-laden is now light enough to be stolen by a birthday balloon or lifted away by a migrating troupe of butterflies. Indeed, a mysterious vanishing of the sort will occur this week. Sensing its theft, “Where is my heart?” you’ll ask, all the while knowing the answer.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Justice is, by definition, going to be unpleasant for someone. Everything has its cost, and the price of wrongdoing is particularly steep. Some enjoy watching the reckoning, though not you — not even when you’re the one vindicated! Compassion and empathy drive your forgiving heart as you avert your eyes.
