ARIES (March 21-April 19)
No matter how well you plan things, it’s when they veer off-plan that things get interesting. This is what makes a creation singular. The unpredictable error; the striving for an unachievable aim; the childlike hope woven into a failed attempt. This elevates the work to a level of art that is human and relatable.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
The destination you seek is not a place but a state of mind. Still, there’s a longitude and latitude marker for where it happens. Take an objective look at rooms you inhabit. It will be easier to achieve your aims in the environment that supports them. How can you adapt the environment to better suit you?
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
The way you live gives something to others without you even realizing it. Following your interests, maintaining a cheerful tone, carrying a mood with you that’s easy to be around, living by your own principles… these behaviors inspire. They are perspective-broadening advice you give without saying a word.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
The unacceptable thing will also be the truest. Most will overlook, dismiss or reject it on its face. Take a look. It gives you the advantage. Without the drama of being offended or astonished, you can use information to understand the full scope of a situation. You’ll see what’s useful. You’ll land on solutions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
There are those who would take advantage of your soft heart. There’s a gift in this. You’ll realize where the edges of your comfort lie. You’ll get clear about what you’re willing to do for others. You’ll understand where the boundaries should go because you can’t maintain or defend a boundary until you know where it is.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
There will be no work more noble than the effort to conquer your own reactive impulses. No special equipment or training is needed for this strength training. You become mighty as you move through everyday experiences, compromising, cooperating and persevering as a team.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Making connections is a little trickier than it looks. People like to earn acceptance. They will be skeptical when it’s given too readily. There’s an art to letting people know you like them. It’s easier to do indirectly and through a general tone. Trust is built through a consistent rhythm; it takes time to establish.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
The experience of being you is often packaged in a swirl of thoughts that whisper and shout and are helpful and unhelpful, aligned and chaotic. The week brings experiences to calm and harmonize the swirl. Being physically active will be a huge contributor to your most enjoyable and productive moments.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
It’s not fair to make your self-love conditional. You’d prefer yourself to stick with the plan, perform in a particular way and get certain results. But don’t turn on yourself when you fall short. Have compassion as you learn to work with yourself. Surround yourself with teachers, supporters and role models.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You’ll be thinking deep thoughts. It all starts with a question. You’ll be curious about how things work and why, who is running it and where it’s going. Most importantly, you’ll want to know your purpose inside it all. One small certainty will send you down a kind of yellow brick road.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You’ll label things for the sake of organization. It works in a notebook, a closet, and in your own internal emotional and social landscape. Putting a label on relationships and feelings will help you process them. Name things carefully with benevolence and specificity. And remember — labels can change.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
It’s easier to feel like you’re winning when people are actually rooting for you. But when you’ve done a thing enough times to be intimately attuned to exactly the work most needed to succeed, that work becomes its own cheer squad. The feeling of growing masterful is more satisfying than any external reward.
