ARIES (March 21-April 19)
While gossip can be erosive to a social circle, it’s important to understand it for what it is. People bond over this type of information.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
You’re capable of much more than you once thought. You’ll be inspired to test the limits. Revolt against routines that don’t seem to be adding up to anything. If you let yourself do the same thing you’ve been doing, you’ll soon find yourself in a rut that’s hard to break out of.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Approval-seeking is the death of charisma.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It’s not always possible to decide how you’re going to react to life and follow your own commands. Feelings don’t like to be bossed around. Though, with your incredible imagination, you may be able to conjure and coax a feeling into being. Such emotional exercises are ripe for exploring this week.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
There was a time you strived for perfection through addition. More people, embellishments, rules, more color and music, more, more, more. For this week’s endeavor, you’ll find better results going the opposite direction, subtracting for clarity, simplicity and brevity. You’ll strip the thing down to essentials and build anew.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
In case you were wondering just how badly you want a thing, today will show you. Seeing someone else have it is a huge hint; getting close to having it is another. But of course the best gauge of all will be the level of satisfaction you experience when the thing is snug in hand, as it will be for a time this week.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
As you play, the lessons you learn in the game become a part of you. The big prize at the end matters only in that it gives you a goal and a reason to keep going when it’s hard. Your experiences, relationships, skills and challenges are the real treasure you’ll take away regardless of the final score.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
The old adage goes, “In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.” It can be challenging to discern exactly what you’re dealing with. Distance yourself from the scene to get a better perspective. Don’t act until you can clearly see the principles in play.
