ARIES (March 21-April 19)

These days, instructions are everywhere. The pillow and the wall hanging and the media post tell you what to do and think and how to be. It can feel intrusive, and your instinct to rebel is only natural. You may categorically shun all instructions and fly entirely in the zone of intuition, which will feel a lot like freedom. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

It seems your options are limited by factors beyond your control such as your age, gender, race, location, the rules of the game or the financial end of things. But what if these limits are merely perceived? Push into them and see if there’s more leeway than appearances suggest. Ponder possible workarounds. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Yes, the project is worthwhile, though it will take twice as long as you think, which is the case with most worthy work. It reveals itself little by little, pulling you deeper into your own heart. At some point, the time and effort become irrelevant. You’re driven to know what happens and, in doing so, know yourself.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

You have the courage to put together the ideas that interest you, and you present them in your own unique way. Some will get it right away and want to be a part of it. Others won’t understand until everyone else does. But you don’t need everyone on your side. The most important one to have on your side is you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

It’s not so easy to separate the signal from the noise. Check your sources. Challenges to clear communication are numerous and varied. Misinformation can happen easily and without ill-intent. But if anyone can avoid mistakes and help everyone understand and come to an agreement, it’s you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The more present you are to the moment, the more attractive you are. In familiar territory you’ll be naturally centered, and you’ll radiate cool confidence. New situations have a way of making your mind race ahead. You don’t have to look good at all times. Awkwardness is part of an ever-expanding life. Your life is getting bigger indeed!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Just because people believe it doesn’t make it real or right. Even so, trying to convince or influence people away from their beliefs will be an ineffective use of your time. Instead, you’ll live in a way that reflects your values. Others take notice of what’s working well for you. Some will want to do as you do.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Communicating doesn’t require talking. The truth is that you cannot avoid communicating because, as long as you are present, your body, movement, breathing, energy and very essence is sending a message. Your awareness in this regard makes you most effective this week.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re choosy about your involvements because you tend to give them your all. The project you have on deck will bring out the best in you, requiring you to be organized, forward-thinking and resourceful. You’ll have fun with it, too, as long as you pace yourself well. Plan to leave nothing to the last minute.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re assertive, not domineering. You’ll master the fine art of being a boss without being bossy. It’s a tightrope walk to be sure, but as long as you’re paying attention to the feedback others give you, you’ll maintain your standing. No longer having to kowtow to others is something to celebrate. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

While you’re able to defend what’s yours, you’d prefer not to have to. That’s why you’re so careful about who you get close to. You pay attention to indications of character, worldview and thought process. Generous spirits will be all around you. You’ll enjoy interactions of openness, trust and fun.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Luck and your emotional state go hand in hand. Your outlook and mood are on the up and up. You’re hopeful about the problems you couldn’t solve last week and will come at them from a new angle. You’ll process and act on what you feel, creating a sense of progress you haven’t known in a long while.
