ARIES (March 21-April 19)
What people call an invention is so often more of a reinvention — the old thing with a twist. This week, an inventive mood prevails. You’ll look around for a problem to solve, a need to fill or interesting elements to combine in a novel way. You won’t have to look very far to find it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You’re drawn to powerful people who have earned their place just as you have. Even so, don’t underplay luck’s role. The headwinds and tailwinds of life can lift or thwart. This week brings reminders to respect the fickle hand of fate and help those around you who do not currently find themselves in her favor.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Usually, you try to give information on a need-to-know basis and answer only when asked. This week, just say it. The world needs your take. And don’t worry about being original either. “Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens, we have to keep going back and beginning all over again.” — Andre Gide
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
People tend to love along certain grooves and styles they learned early in life. With awareness, these patterns can be optimized or changed. You’re more aware of relationship dynamics this week. You’ll notice new things about the way you love and are loved, and the information will be applied to improvements.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
The adage suggests it’s not what you know but (SET ITAL) who (END ITAL) you know that matters. Neither will make a difference this week. No amount of “knowing” — who, what, (SET ITAL) how (END ITAL) or otherwise — will improve the situation. Most solutions, improvements and successful actions will have to do with feeling, giving and simply being.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Do not be dissuaded by your loved one’s discomfort. To discomfort loved ones is as much a duty as the duty to comfort your loved ones. It weakens a person to live with only softness. One of the great benefits of honest relationships is that we are strengthened and improved inside them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Your choices can be surprising even to you. It’s like one part of you has to live with decisions made by another part of you. This week, the phenomenon will inspire a feeling that you’d like to get to know yourself a little better. “Nothing we do is inevitable, but everything we do is irreversible.” — Joy Williams
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
You’re not trying to intimidate anyone and yet your very presence can strike a note of fear in those who want you to like, hire or approve of them in any way. The question is, do you want people to be themselves around you, or would you prefer them to reach a bit to be the person they think you want?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Even though people have unusual qualities or things about them that are not ideal, you readily make room in your heart for the many facets of others. Self-acceptance isn’t as easy for you at times. Try to let yourself be who you naturally are. Don’t change the very things that make you stand out as an original.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
There’s a particular pattern of yours you’ve noticed — not exactly an unhealthy habit, but it’s not helping. Your reason to quit will be obvious and unavoidable. You can see two distinctly different futures before you — the one where you continue and the one where you change.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You don’t have to be reminded the accumulation of material items can make life cumbersome. It’s not that the old stuff has to go, nor do you need to refrain from getting anything new, rather there’s a sense that some of these possessions no longer represent or delight you. You’ll maximize by minimizing.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
No one knows what you can do, not even you, not yet. People will want to define you, and you may feel like you’re being asked to come up with the definition, but don’t. With a definition comes a limit. By saying what you are, you say what you aren’t. Instead, throw yourself into the work and your actions will form you.
