ARIES (March 21-April 19)
People feel playful around you because of the example you set. The enemy of play is pressure and performance anxiety. You have a remedy for such things. You create a safe, relaxed place for people to be themselves, or experiment in that regard without fearing judgment. You bring out the best in others and then benefit from their bright efforts.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Small preferences and irritations aren’t worth fussing over. You may find yourself agreeing to what’s offered because that’s the easiest thing to do. Conventional wisdom balks. On the other hand, since most suffering comes from fighting the flow of life, surrendering to the ride is your ticket to adventure.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Familiarity can dull the features of a place, draining the scenery of color. To avoid letting this happen to your current environs, you’ll make sure to put something exciting on the books: an adventure elsewhere to take you out of your routine and refresh your perspective. You’ll come back with new eyes.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
You’ll use intuition and keep it strong. This week features a breakthrough conversation between you and you. Consider changing up your method of communication. There are so many ways to relate to yourself — meditation, journaling, mirror work, walking or driving while thinking out loud. Fortune favors experimentation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Whether you identify as introverted or extroverted, a peaceful type of solitude will fortify your soul this week. It’s not just about being alone in a tranquil environment. The energizing effect will have more to do with meeting yourself with complete and compassionate acceptance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’re not so sure how to approach the game of tug of war presenting itself in the middle of your week. Do you exert yourself the most at the top, or test things out a while? Do you let go early, never or at the optimum time to see the opposition fall? The bottom line is this: It’s a game. If a game is not fun, it’s not worth playing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Like most beings, you do what doesn’t hurt. The trouble comes with the role of time. Some things that hurt in the short term bring long-term pleasure, enjoyment or ease. This week, you’ll often tinker with the scale that weighs pain against pleasure. Time is the beam in the center. Adjust your plan accordingly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
You may as well be an appraiser this week because your valuation of things will have a big influence on sales outcomes both personally and professionally. The first thing to estimate is your own efforts. All else will flow from how you value what you do. The world will take the price you set as the going rate.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Instead of expecting to get what you wish, you wisely expect to get what people have and are willing to give. The maturity of this choice requires you to tune in carefully and observe the behavioral patterns for clues. Getting what you want is a function of finding the people and circumstances where that’s served and trading the local tender.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Whether at home or work, it’s a political atmosphere as people position themselves and make power moves to execute a strategy. The plot changes come quick. As each development happens, you’ll try to figure out the underlying emotion. “Why” will be more important to know than “what.”
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
When things get hectic, you must think ahead to make time for the people who are important to you. It’s worth it to you to plan for and protect those hours you’ll devote to those in your inner circle. You don’t have to do much to make it special either. Just being together is wonderful.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You’ll have instances of certainty and pockets of bewilderment, curiosity and questioning, too. These various states can be attributed to your well-developed sense of self. You’re not so involved in your own ego that you would assume to be constantly right. And your sophisticated mind is always open to learning more.
