ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You experience each person as a new discovery. You appreciate uniqueness of personal rhythms and tones, points of tension, particularities of movement — it’s what makes socializing fascinating. When you start forgetting who did what, and humanity blurs into homogeny, take a break from the social swirl.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You appreciate how things come together because you realize just how much can go into even the simplest of plans. A series of events and responses will unfold wondrously for you this week, involving instinct, thought, input and physicality, each gear turning the next in an interplay akin to a finely tuned machine.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
When is it time to retire an interest? When it’s no longer interesting, of course! Feelings around letting go — guilt, sentimentality, fear — can be sticky, but that’s not an upbeat reason to continue. When you finish with an endeavor, this will free you of a related clutter of material possessions, liberating new energy.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
There are some things you might prefer to do for free because it takes the pressure off. But even if you still think of yourself as an amateur, you should charge or at least trade something for your work. It makes the experience better for both parties. People will value what they pay for even if they pay very little.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
No one is born knowing. Awkward stages are an inevitability of growth. Of course, if you’re going to feel inadequate, you’d prefer to feel it alone. Learning before an audience adds uncomfortable intensity. When it’s unavoidable, take heart. On the bright side, such an experience is a mighty strong bonding agent.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Persistence and perseverance are more valuable commodities than talent. You want to work and play with people who can commit, follow through and stick with the mission. The attitude of determination is like a varnish that makes natural aptitudes shiny and tough.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Instead of rating yourself against others, you’ll be tempted to use your own past performance as a benchmark. The trouble is, even for you, you’re a hard act to follow. Anyway, scorekeeping is unnecessary in unique situations like this. Consider yourself and your work incomparable and just keep going.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Even though you can be exceptionally gifted at the art of compartmentalization, events echo one another. Every experience is still in you somewhere and has bearing on the other experiences. Your existence plays multiple notes at once. To harmonize them, you have to be willing to listen to all the parts of you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
What you read, watch and listen to matters. It’s not because others base their opinions of you on it — they do, but that’s beside the point. While it doesn’t define you, media influences your thoughts, molds your mindset and messes with your appetites. You’ll choose your entertainment with great care.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It may feel as though you are not moving very quickly through a pursuit, but this is actually perfect. You are accumulating a knowledge base. Later, some event or new piece of information will trigger the light switch, and you’ll see how it all fits together. Until that time, enjoy yourself. Learning is a pleasure.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The people who want you to buy their products are constantly advertising to you. Why let them have all the attention? Use the power of marketing to sway your own choices. You’ll love what happens when you surround yourself with symbols and messages that encourage you to choose what’s best for you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Feeling drawn to someone doesn’t always mean that the person will be good for you. You learned this lesson through experience and now need only to remind yourself. Meanwhile, what starts as a mild attraction has potential to grow into something brilliant, strong and healthy.
