ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Though it’s natural to be wary of commitments that seem far-reaching, long-term or overly constrictive, these may be precisely the type of arrangements that can organize your life in a beneficial way. Consider taking on a responsibility. Investigate further. You can afford to be daring.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
It is silly to wait until something is wrong to do the thing you enjoy. You don’t need excuses to take part in whatever you think is fun. Flexing your creativity doesn’t have to be an indulgence. Why not make something just because you want to? It could be the very best reason. Your work will produce satisfying results.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
You’re observant because you have the energy for it. You’re comfortable in your skin and therefore aren’t preoccupied with thoughts about yourself and how you’re coming across; this allows you to focus on the world. You’ll notice what others don’t, and you’ll turn these observations into opportunities.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
It’s a week of daring questions. You could ask, “What are you really saying?” You could ask, “What world do you live in?” You could ask, “Why?” Of all the answers you get, it will be your own answer to these questions that’s the most interesting to unpack.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’re not going to come up with everything on your own because no one does. Furthermore, your associations will matter. Maybe name-dropping is a cheap move, but when you need more clout, it’s an effective one. Collaboration is the spirit of the week. Include others and enjoy what happens next.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You would like to instantly provide what others need; however, even if it were possible, it wouldn’t be healthy. You are not a magic genie. It creates co-dependency to let others think of you this way. Serve your own interests up front; it will put you in a position to do more for others.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
You’re in the mood to spend! To prevent buyer’s remorse, be savvy to the tricks of marketing. Bulk discount buys and wording such as “limited supply” are suspect. Stay aware of what you really need. Many luxurious experiences can be had for a few cents — a long hot shower, for instance — and beauty rest is free!
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
The map is just a guideline. When it tells you something different from what you see on the ground, the ground wins. The truth is under your feet. Trust your senses, your judgment and your process. Your experience may not be the same as other people’s but it’s valid.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You want to get right with the balance of the world in all kinds of ways. You’ll tabulate your debts — financial, psychic, emotional or karmic — and review, assess and know the bottom line. Once you pay up, the part of your life that seemed whimsical will finally settle in and fall under your control.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The people in your life are there because you want them there, not because you need them. Still, you’re thinking of taking things to the next level, going from someone’s “other” to someone’s “only.” Whether business or personal, exclusivity is a big step not to be rushed into. Think on it another week.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The one who makes you feel like there’s something special and magical in your future is a person you should hang out with more often. The end of conversation will be like a leap without a landing. Unfinished thoughts, beautifully incomplete, providing tension instead of closure… This is addictive.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
It’s said that penguins fall in love and even give each other gifts. Penguins have been observed searching an entire beach for the right pebble to bring a mate. You’ll feel a bit like the loyal bird this week as you try to please someone in a very specific and meaningful way. Your gesture will go straight to the heart.
