ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a new positive influence on the scene — a strong and approachable leader. You’ll learn from the way this person presents himself, and there is something in his or her behavior that you can emulate to tremendous effect. By the end of the week, you have established an impressive new habit all your own.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). As a rule, you are a thoroughly modern thinker. You understand that what was commonplace in an era gone by is now considered offensive. As the week progresses, you more fully embrace this exciting moment in history. You’ll see many examples of the changing times and recognize that things are getting better.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). One of the wonderful things about having made mistakes in your life is that you have an increased tolerance for others who mess up. You realize that you have no right to judge. Your heart opens wide this week as you focus your attention in a positive way, and you have your past mistakes to thank for it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re even more psychically attuned than usual this week. Follow your whims and instincts, especially in regard to your love life. Also, your dreams will hold important insights. Tell yourself before you go to sleep to remember your dreams, and keep a notebook and pen next to the bed to record them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Like the feline that your sign is modeled after, you will be highly discerning in choosing who will get the pleasure of your attention. Furthermore, you bestow your affection only when you are greatly moved to do so. Your refined manner will make your love seem like a rare and wonderful treasure, which it is.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Due to unexpected changes, you will be prioritizing in a way that’s different from your usual. New people will take up your attention. You could forget something important in the process, and that’s OK. It all works out in the end. Others return your generosity in ways that will make you feel acknowledged and elated.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your personality is so agreeable that you sometimes don’t realize exactly what it is you’ve agreed to do until it’s too late to back out. That’s why it benefits you to be a careful listener and ask plenty of questions. When in doubt, don’t commit yourself. Only make a move when every fiber of your being wants to do it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your eye for quality is honed. You immediately discern what’s middle of the road from what is really special. Perhaps there’s a high price for the thing you really want. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s out of reach. You have a wide extension when you combine your clever, creative mind with outstretched arms.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll transform your attitude by thinking new thoughts. For instance: “I am new in this moment,” and “I am free to make fresh choices.” The personal work you do may not be as tangible as other kinds of self-improvement, but others will notice as much as they would if you changed your hairstyle.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You think you are doing poorly in a certain area of life until you check out the full range of what is humanly possible. If you were being graded in this area, you would actually get a “C.” And as soon as you apply yourself, you’ll improve rapidly. So stay on the bright side, be positive and count your assets.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Everyone wants to be more confident, but this doesn’t occur by magic. You feel more in touch with your inner strength when you know appropriate ways to respond to your environment. You will attain social skills and take the time to learn the proper etiquette of the situations you are likely to encounter.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sentimentality gets a bad rap. There is something wonderfully fulfilling about hanging around in the past, going through your old stories and giving them a nostalgic sheen. You grow from visiting your history with an open heart. So what if your talent for drama comes into play? These are your memories, after all!
THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You are strong, positive and persistent this year. The same kind of change that would have had you trembling in fear will excite and motivate you. A big career break comes this month. Next month, your love life gets interesting as your partner’s luck affects you. Singles will attract an adventurous soul and be swept into a journey. There will be family business to handle in November, and it requires your utmost diplomacy. The funding for education or travel comes in February.
