ARIES (March 21-April 19)
This week represents a breakthrough in your mental game. You’ll find that you don’t always identify with what runs through your mind. Thoughts are just thoughts. When you sense that a thought isn’t useful, try adding a disclaimer to the end of it. “I’m feeling anxious… (SET ITAL) but (END ITAL) I can also think of ways things could go well.”
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Remember your original intentions. The week throws distractions your way, and it’s easy to get caught up in the other things there are to want. Until you get back to that one thing you started with, you won’t be truly fulfilled. Let your deeper reasons fuel you to be of service and you’ll do the work you were meant to do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Stress can be paralyzing, or it can be the necessary push to try something different. Stress can deliver the extra energy needed to do something hard. You’ll accept that some amount of stress will help you. You’ll find that sweet spot where it’s not too much. And you’ll use the energy boost to leap over an obstacle.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
You’re conscious that an activity is undermining your goal, though you still may feel compelled to do it. Awareness has stages. What else can you observe about the behavior, such as triggers, environments or people involved? Can you make a plan anyway? Wherever you are in the process at the start of the week, it will improve by the weekend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
On your way to an achievement, you hold yourself accountable, but don’t punish yourself. Allow for the wavering that is human and natural in any process. As you cheer yourself on, you’re looking for movement in a particular direction, not perfection. Anything that’s more of what you want counts toward the goal.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’re getting into the energy of having what you want. This should be the fun part. It’s the college visit, the test drive, the appetizer platter giving you a taste of what’s to come even though, in a sense, you’re already there. Make your dreams happen in a small way and the big way will be next.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
You see and appreciate so much in others but forget to turn that love back on yourself. Acknowledge your strengths. Embracing the attitudes, habits and characteristics that make you so wonderfully you is a path to self-love and thriving. Could you turn it into a practice? It will dissipate your worries and allow you to shine.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)
Some days roll out like a Bubble Wrap of tasks you can pinch off with orderly satisfaction. But this week is more like Styrofoam packing peanuts — messy and weird to clean up, though you may be grateful about how nothing is broken, and the tasks are light, if sometimes staticky. Everything gets handled. All stays intact.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Some people don’t have a clue how to let loose and have a good time. It’s an easier thing to do in an environment that’s comfortable. You’ll make people comfortable with your warmth and ability to see and be the fun. You will save the party this way — and save the meeting/date/otherwise boring routine as well.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It’s not always about keeping your eye on the prize. The feeling of the work, your breath and getting the “form” right are all important as well. Whether your performance has to do with making a sale, teaching a class or crossing the finish line of a race, the more connected to the moment you are, the better you’ll perform.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You’ve been cheering the team and taking pictures. This week, you’ll step out of the sidelines and into those pictures, taking to heart the cheers of others. Being part of the action, for however long it lasts, enriches your powers of observation in perpetuity, and your joy in equal measure.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
A new cycle will begin, but first, the universe is waiting for you to signal the start. You’ll initiate this time around the track, not with a sound or a flag but with an act of intent. Cut your hair, buy a new power tool, give old clothes away. The universe awaits your green light.
