ARIES (March 21-April 19)
There’s someone who pouts when you don’t pay attention. You can take it as a compliment. Your attention is a comfort and an energizer. Should it also be a privilege though? There are those you feel should work for it and others who have it unconditionally. You’ll work out boundaries and rules on the matter.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You make moments for people. Like a playwright ratcheting up the drama, or the creator of a theme park experience, you think about how to construct an emotional progression and lead someone through it. Often people do this on a subconscious level, but you do it purposefully, consciously and brilliantly this week.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Keep observing those who do what you want to be doing. If you’re not in love with anyone’s work yet, you need more influences. It is good to have one or two models, but having 12 is better and having 20 is better still. This is a phase of absorption — of becoming great by steeping in greatness.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
You’ll feel and respond to the texture of the present moment, even the parts you’re not actively engaging with. This week, some of life will seem to be behind velvet curtains; you don’t have to touch to know how it would feel to. Relax, access the experience at a respectful distance for now and enjoy the show.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
It’s an age-old struggle in the art of living. Two sides of you, the director and the actor, are in conflict. The director has a vision; the actor doesn’t share it. The actor throws tantrums, playing it wild, flowing unapproved emotions through the performance. Both sides have merit. Gentleness and patience bring harmony.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
There’s something you dream of doing that you haven’t accomplished yet. It’s been a fuzzy wish and now, suddenly, you can see it better, as though the scene came into focus with the right lens setting on a camera. Tell people your hopes, and your allies will be many.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
An expensive five-minute carnival ride can be a rush, but wouldn’t you rather have a whole day at the fair? Pace your delights. This week, you’ll learn about yourself as you pay slow and deliberate attention to your sensory experience of something you would usually be inclined to get through quickly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
The same action done with a different intention will have different results. Intention can be the difference between a compliment and an insult, success and dumb luck, a crime and an accident. Nuances matter, i.e., what’s done from love has one outcome; what’s done from duty has another.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re not new at this. You’ve traveled this life enough to know the benefits of having a destination in mind and the dangers of being so fixated on it that you lose the richness of the journey. This week, you hit the perfect relaxed stride. Progress is assured and the detours will be both necessary and lovely.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
There was a time you were compelled to share, and now the higher value you place on your own mystery inspires you toward different social strategies. Not everyone needs to know what you’re thinking and doing. You’ll navigate your privacy ideals and decide how much of your inner world to reveal as well.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
What you really desire is a stronger and wider capacity to become aware of what’s going on as it is going on. A high level of awareness is a prerequisite to finding and acting on the opportunities of the moment. Also, a greater capacity for absorbing and integrating the moment makes for an enviable smoothness.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Most people don’t like being wrong. Some will go to great lengths not to admit it’s happened. But being wrong doesn’t look so terrible on the lighthearted. In fact, well-intentioned mistakes are much more loveable than self-seriousness. At the very least, they indicate a person’s willingness to stretch and risk.
