ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You’ll be playing the long game this week, which allows you to be experimental. If what you try doesn’t work, you try something else until something clicks. This is the way of progress. Keep stepping up and stepping out. Ultimately, the success of an endeavor boils down to your persistent and varied efforts.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
On the fence about trying something new? Just say yes. It’s better to be adventurous than keep doing something so similar to what you did a hundred times before that you won’t even remember it. Connect to as much life as you can connect, and see more of life rather than stay in the places you’ve already been.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
You’ll make excellent use of your words. You’ll think ahead about what you want to say to people, even in casual scenarios. You may go so far as to rehearse, knowing that in the moment you’re face-to-face, things might change. You’ll be versatile, quick on your feet, playing the “room” you’re given.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
The usefulness and beauty of things isn’t a constant. You’ll update your taste. You’ll give another look to your personal environment. You’ll pare down your possessions and put some new items on your wish list. Then you’ll do a similar process with your thoughts, with an emphasis on what’s pretty and helpful.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Your moods will be like steps, connected in an order. Whether you move fast or slow, you’ll move through a whole range on your way to other levels. To jump improbably to different emotional places would be odd. There’s comfort and stability in allowing for incremental change and adjusting expectations accordingly.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You have many talents and roles in life, which will be reflected in the varied activities of the week. Expect stark juxtapositions that make you feel like a superhero or spy able to switch in an instant into a completely different person to handle the challenge or seize the opportunity at hand.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Forget about work for a minute and pretend the world is your playground. What then? You have charismatic power to wield. If so inclined, you could use it to mesmerize your subjects. Of course, the exercise is pointless if you don’t know what you want. Give some thought to your desires. What is it you’d like to try next?
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
In a culture trending toward isolation, it’s rare for anyone to have dozens of friends from different walks of life. But a diverse social life is the sort of rare thing worth striving for, especially given your adventurous drives. In each friendship, you’ll have a unique window to the world. You’ll add to your network this week.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Mark Twain suggested that “when you can’t get a compliment any other way, pay yourself one.” But why wait for a lull? You’ll be complimented right and left this week, but they aren’t always the kind you most need to hear — you’re the one most qualified to give those, so do it. Be generous with yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The question of how much to do for your friends and loved ones will arise. Too much can be as bad or worse than not enough. As every baker knows, it’s not just the ingredients but the amounts you deliver that matter. Good measuring can make the difference between a rising cake and a messy flop.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You have a sentimental attachment to the things that made you happy when you were small. Revisiting some of these old loves will be a source of comfort, whimsy and insight today. As you get older, you understand your younger self differently. The better you know yourself, the easier it is to mold a happy life.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
When it’s fun, you dive in; when it’s hard, you solider on. This is your success secret: You anticipate change, especially in your own motivation levels and how you feel about the work. The bottom line is, if the result is important enough to you, you’ll keep moving forward until you make it happen.
