ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You’d love it if you didn’t need attention from others and were only doing what you do to fulfill your own curiosity and passion. Alas, attention is a basic human need. It’s woven into the fabric of humanity, and however fine or coarse the thread may be, there’s no shame in it. It’s part of the human connection.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
People decide how to interact based on the limited information they know of you at any given moment. Your self-knowledge is deeper but still incomplete. This is the value in long relationships with people who have experienced you in many scenarios. This week, you’ll benefit from seasoned insights.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Just when you think you’re working in isolation, or having an experience all your own, things shift. You’ll understand that you’re operating in a shared world, a co-creation. All that happens is a function of the group. Although there are more or less influential people present, no individual is in control of the outcome.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
When the job places demands on your skill, grace and creativity, you feel happier for it. It’s when the job taps on your patience or acting ability that you feel the burden of work. It will still build and improve you, as long as you take it in small doses, lifting intentionally and methodically like a weightlifter in training.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
There are those who are happy to see you explore, have adventures and learn what you’re good at. They’ll celebrate you when you do well, and you won’t ever have to worry about them being jealous or trying to keep you in a certain role. This is what real love is. Soak it in.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
While learning involves duplication, it’s not all there is to it. You’re not a robot following a program; you’re an organism who learns through your senses and experience. You can’t learn in an environment that won’t let you take risks and make mistakes. Success will be a function of choosing your “classroom” well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
What attention do you owe people in your life, your community and the world at large? How much can you give and still have plenty left for what matters to you? You’d rather tend to small, lovely things than let big, impersonal entities grab your focus. With intentionality, quiet and mindfulness, you’ll make it happen.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
While you can never pay certain people back for all they’ve done to make your life better, your respect makes a difference. You’ll model this for those too immature to understand the reasons and ways our forebears sacrificed for our daily world to run smoothly. You pay homage in both playful and solemn ways.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You have a foggy fantasy about how a project will go and what it will entail. You’re about to find out. Give yourself credit for having the rare courage to jump in and find out what it’s really like. Even if the reality doesn’t quite live up to the dream, the vividness of experience is still the preference of the brave.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Clear-headed action is seldom associated with the storms of passion. In poetry, drama and song, too much romantic fervor often signifies doom. You’ll wonder if you’re too crazy about something or someone to make the right moves. Even the slightest detachment gives the benefit of healthy perspective.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Must it always be work before play? The animals are doing play first, just as you did when you were small. It’s the natural way, and you never want to lose the ability of being excellent at the games that make existence sparkle. So you’ll practice and prioritize your fun — an ordering of life you won’t be sorry for.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
There will be exaggerations and overreactions to contend with this week and the equivalent of children crying for ice cream, infusing urgent emotion into nonessentials. You’ll acknowledge the emotions of others without taking them on as your responsibility and your days are made peaceful.
