ARIES (March 21-April 19)
While it’s not possible to control what other people want, it’s certainly within your realm to entice the senses, spark interesting ideas that are fascinating to engage with and generally create the sort of atmosphere people want to be around. This week, you’ll use your skills to attract and persuade.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
The week will bring a wealth of ideas, from the brazen to the bizarre to the brilliant. Theoretical knowledge can do nothing for you, though; the real test is in the application. It’s better to pick one and try it out than to know of a thousand you don’t act on. It’s also an ideal week for networking. You’re naturally charming and curious.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Keep working on your idea until it requires very little, if any, explanation. You’ll know when it’s ready because it will be very easy to relay — you will not have to fan the spark of understanding for too long before it catches on. Leonardo da Vinci suggested, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
Though you’re not exactly a mind reader, your empathy and intuition allow you to make pretty good guesses about what’s happening for others this week, and you’ll make your moves accordingly. You realize that what others demonstrate is likely only the tip of the iceberg of what they are really feeling.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’ve extended yourself to understand and contribute to people’s worlds. Not everyone can get out of themselves in this way. It takes confidence and intellectual flexibility. It takes courage and an inner core of security. Because you’ve often been the one to leave comfortable realms, you’re expanded. You become a bit of everything you learn.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
When you work alone, it can be difficult to determine how you compare with others in the marketplace. You welcome the insights of those who can help you see it from another perspective. These are the opinions that will help you to grow. In doing so, you won’t lose a thing. Everyone you’ve ever been is inside you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
There is nothing more exhilarating than generosity. As you contribute to the lives of others, you will become aware of the difference you are making. And so, the act of giving doesn’t imply sacrifice, rather it often results in unexpectedly receiving quite a lot in return.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Optimism is the fountain of youth. Hope regenerates your cells and restores your spirit. People you reach out to may be reserved until they understand what you want and how they can help. So make it easy for them — talk about what you need to move forward.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Using your imagination as a flight machine, you can go wherever your inner pilot desires. It takes more mental discipline than you’d think to keep the journey aloft, though when you learn to fortify and fuel your imagination, it really will take you anywhere you want to go.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Tension is the basis of all music. It holds the string; it pins the melody to its resolution or irresolution. Tension keeps the action taut. Don’t be afraid of the missteps and unresolved connections. Chances are, they hold the most exquisite tension. Without conflict, no stories exist. Embrace it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Once you’ve mastered a task, there is a very short window of time in which you enjoy repeating your success to good effect. But you’ll need a new challenge soon enough. This week brings reminders to savor where you are in the journey. There is no stage inherently better than another. These are the good old days.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
The nature of the opportunity won’t be indicated in its title — only in the work itself. To know if an opportunity is right for you, look at what skills are being honed inside it. Will the job afford you a chance to fill in the gaps of your knowledge, sharpen your talent or strengthen your weakness?
