ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Fellow Aries Leonardo da Vinci was a genius for the ages who spent his last years wondering whether he’d made a difference with his life. While you’re not alone in your feelings of self-doubt, there’s no time to indulge them. Your contributions matter to those around you, and those who come after will build on them.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Talk to your future self; that’s the person who knows the most about this path you’re on. If you’ve never discussed things with future you before, don’t worry; the door is always open. You’re future you’s favorite person. As far as logistics go, just use the same channels you use to talk to past you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
If you don’t approach it right, being too careful with your pennies will make you feel poor. But frugality can also make you feel rich if you know what you’re saving for — especially if it’s for an investment with the potential to pay you and yours for years to come. Any investment in your skills is doubly lucky this week.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
It is the nature of sacred objects, appointments and relationships to move to the top of the list. All competition for attention clears out to make room for the consecrated energy to flow past and give its euphoric touch. If your life is lacking sacredness, decide what to make sacred; then imbue it with hallowed energy.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
“Keep your chin up” is the standard advice to the downtrodden, which, if enacted literally, works like a charm. To access the physicality of feeling better is to feel better. It can be accomplished in the position of the chin; the curve of the lips; an open chest filled with fresh air; and the sturdiness of a forward stride.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
To love without knowing a person well is to love a phantom creation that exists only in the lover’s mind. If an actual person wants love and it is given to a phantom creation instead, the actual person will feel lonely and rejected. Seek to know and be known. Understanding is more important than love this week.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
The river of life is rife with whirlpools of sadness that draw a person down. This week, build up an arsenal that will help you actively fight against vortexes of suffering. Included in your armory: events you’re looking forward to, a list of things that make you happy, sweet relationship highlights and plans for your bright future.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
You’ll spend a longer than expected amount of time on planning, but it’s a worthy use of your energy. Carefully orchestrated plans are like musical arrangements that will add elements of excitement, drama and comedy to your life. Bonus: This is true whether or not things actually do go to plan.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your behavior centers around the simple desire to leave things better than you found them. You strive to lift the mood. You give smiles, compliments and a good quality of attention; you want people to be a bit happier because they interacted with you. You stir good vibes into every new situation you enter.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Even hardened criminals believe they are good people. How do you know you’re really good? That you care about this at all is one indication. Your ability to question your own actions and judgment — and strive for objectivity in the matter — also counts. This week brings more evidence of your benevolence.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The hungrier people are, the better food tastes. Therefore, anticipation is the must-have ingredient. Those moments between the idea of the meal and the meal itself should be drawn out enough for the arrival of course one to come as a sweet relief. Apply the principle to your non-food-related plans this week.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Feelings must be self-generated. It is as impossible to make another person feel any certain way as it is to exercise for another person. Creating the atmosphere to invite feeling is the most you can do and this you’ll do very well. You’ll set the tones to proliferate particular feelings and thrive they will.
