ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Remind yourself of your good qualities. The reason is not to pump yourself up; rather, it’s an inventory process that gets you in touch with what you have to offer the world. To refamiliarize yourself with your numerous gifts helps you move forward in confidence. Bonus: This week will match you with ideal receivers.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
There’s a different way of solving your problem, and you’ll pick it up quickly once you decide that’s what you want to do. It’s not about studying so much as just paying attention to people who have the skill set. Much can happen through the magical osmosis of being around those who have what you desire.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Friendship takes focus. No matter how many friends you have, you can always have more because each broadens your relationship skills and capacity to love. You relate to others so easily partly due to increased powers of empathy and excellent timing. You make life better for others; your attention is a sweet balm.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
It’s said that you can catch more flies with honey, although no one has figured out why you’d want to. For now, don’t worry about how sweet you are being. Keep your mind on what you want, and your feelings will process themselves. Just allow them to flow through. You’ll attract what you need — not flies!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Everyone has words that are more difficult for them. For some, it’s “sorry,” for others “love.” “Goodbye” can be a hard one or awkward enough that you’d rather others say it first. And yet, there are situations that need to be moved along now or you’ll miss out on opportunities only catchable to those whose hands are free.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You love a challenge, especially one that fits your strengths. You can be sure that others feel the same way. To give them the chance to come through for you is to offer them a gift. So don’t be too proud to ask others for what you need. They just may be delighted by the challenge.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
When something is this new, it has a specific energy to it, as unmistakable as a “new car” scent. Opportunities arise this week. While there’s no need to rush, if you wait too long, you lose that effervescence. It’s like the vacuum seal pops causing a freshness leak. So act on your impulses. Move crisply forward.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Don’t waste a minute envying other people’s celebratory photos, epic travel pics and the like. An amazing life isn’t built in exciting events (which are never quite as momentous as they seem like they should be). The big joys are born of daily improvements and lifestyle choices. Build small wins into each day.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Instead of striving for happiness, cut out striving altogether. The energy of reaching, trying and hoping yields poor results. Making excellence happen is simple. Decide what to do and be in a good mood while you execute the plan. Do more of what works and less of what doesn’t.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Everywhere you look, people are taking care of one another. You’ll witness it in displays of gentleness, good manners, friendliness… You’ll also see it in the security people feel while out and about, and their trust in one another to uphold the rules of common decency. Your heart will swell with community pride.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The reason people don’t listen well is because, deep down, they are afraid of being moved by what they hear. They are afraid they’ll have to get involved, be inclusive of something new or change in some way. These fears are warranted. Listening well does have a way of changing things — usually for the better.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Avoid the drastic and dramatic moves. Thinking that you need to do something huge to shake things up is wrongheaded; it’s the equivalent of a sensational headline for an underwhelming story. Big gestures can also be costly. The real excitement is created through incremental and affordable improvements over time.
