ARIES (March 21-April 19)
It’s easier to be sure-footed when you’re walking the stability of a known world. While there may be a lot that needs to change, when you think about all the systems and routines that have to go right to keep things marching along, you feel grateful for whatever is happening smoothly in this part of life.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
The week goes well if you don’t get too wrapped up in winning. That would make your game tight and vulnerable to mistakes of tension. Back off and consider two ways to relax into your play. Pretend like you have so much advantage you’ll never run out, or imagine instead that you have no advantage and therefore nothing to lose.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
It’s a good time for social strategizing. For instance, you may want to decide ahead of time what and how you will share with people. It is both kind and smart to consider the expectations of others. When in doubt, go for a pleasant state of neutrality. Avoid inspiring envy and controversy or giving people a reason to focus unhelpfully.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
Financial demands seem affordable when someone else is paying. Chores and maintenance go faster when done by others. As true as this may be, you still prefer to take care of things on your own. Your reward for this is that you become incredibly capable, confident, vital, attractive, forward-thinking and unstoppable.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’ll speak words of kindness if they come to you, but you don’t have to. The way you hold yourself open to the world, the nice things you think to yourself about the strangers passing by and the friendliness of your smile contribute more than you know to the spirit of gentleness that would ideally prevail in a better world.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
The act of creating a fantasy is like giving yourself a gift. The right fantasy can do more than entertain you. It can give you the clues about the life you might create for yourself. It can be the vision that shows you where you could go and pulls you into a future that would delight you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
This week’s to-do list contains items that are less than fascinating, but give them more attention than you think they deserve. They have potential to advance you, perhaps delightfully so. It is the details — the glorious, captivating details — that will provide the magic of the week.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
As much as you’d like others to focus on the same things that matter to you, it won’t happen often this week. There are benefits to the diverse energies, though. You’ll get more versions of the story, and multiple viewpoints will be interesting, broadening the scope of your project and causing you to learn more, and quickly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
In the animal kingdom, there are not enemies, just creatures competing for resources. Humans tend to see the competition as sinister, and yet the same principle applies. Take moral bias out of the equation and you will see people in terms of what they need or want, not in subjective terms of good and evil.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You are good at many things and great at something that is rare. Too much time has passed since you gave much-deserved attention to your talent. Use your exceptional gift this week, or at the very least, plan to use it soon, building the schedule, training or environment to make this possible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You have powers so terrifying and awesome you wouldn’t dare use them regularly. That would be like using a lightning bolt to do the work of a stapler. You don’t need to deploy these powers this week, though the thought will cross your mind. It’s a confident feeling just to remember what you are capable of.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You embrace duty, knowing it’s not likely to change. People say it gets easier, but “it” actually remains about the same. What happens is that you get stronger, as well as smarter, more innovative and capable until one day, the task that used to make you sweat will be a piece of cake. That day is coming sooner than you think.
