ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Creativity is your quest. Setting up a safe environment for personal expression will be an important step in ramping up your vitality. And remember that this isn’t necessarily about singing, dancing or painting. Any action at all can be creative, especially when approached with a sense of play.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Happiness is a fun thing to experience but a tricky thing to strive for. The pursuit of happiness often backfires. Most of the happiness you’ll have will be an unexpected find. You’re better off applying yourself to work you find meaningful or making a contribution to something you believe in.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
There’s only one way to ensure that you’re getting the best deal, the highest quality and in the most abundant quantity available: ask. Those who don’t ask don’t get. And you would be surprised how few actually do ask. It takes boldness. You have courage to burn this week, so use it well.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
You command yourself to pay attention to others. Do you also expect them to pay attention to you? Reciprocity is required for balance. Balance is required for sustainability. Relationships last when they are good for everyone. Be direct and clear. Be sure that your needs are, if not served, at least noted.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
“Everybody gets so much information all day long that they lose their common sense,” said Gertrude Stein, who died before the internet was invented. You’ll limit your exposure to the world of everything this week in order to better know your own natural motivations and inclinations.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’ll do your best work after waking up from uninterrupted sleep. The alarm counts as an interruption in this case. To let your body do what comes naturally shouldn’t be considered a luxury. Optimal well-being involves getting all the rest and recuperation your body needs, without an ounce of guilt.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Practice never quite makes perfect, though it will move you in a good direction. The best part won’t be the progress you make or any result in particular. It’s the enjoyment you get from engaging and striving that makes an effort worthwhile. Bonus: You also develop the most marvelous gut instinct in the process.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
How things happen is important but how you remember them is equally important, if not more so. Your story only happens once but it replays numerous times in your head, each run imbued with meanings, associations and clues to your identity. As you look back, work on framing things in a way that empowers you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re trying to build something beautiful. Whether it’s a relationship, a piece of art or simply a mighty fine lunch, the mere intention to put loveliness in the world makes everyone’s experience better. Whether you succeed by your own standards is beside the point. Just by attempting, you’ve already won.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
There’s no reason to fear commitment. Oddly enough, restrictions will give you freedom. The same rules and routines that disallow you to go wild and do whatever you want will keep you productively, meaningfully focused. It’s counterintuitive, but you’ll actually feel liberated by your limitations.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You’ll make a promise without using the words “I promise.” Your action will set up a rhythm and an expectation. Before you know it, people are counting on you. It will feel good to be needed. A strong sense of purpose takes hold. Other benefits include new opportunities and greater self-esteem.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Developments include a shift in your self-concept. Well-aware that your physical form is only part of who you are, you’ll get a strong sense of the evolving landscape of your perceptions and consciousness. You’ll get comfortable with the idea that your identity is in flux as you learn and adapt to a changing world.
