This week’s birthdays: It is always important to do what you say you are going to do, and this week drives the point home. Our word is one of the most meaningful things we can give. To honor one's own promise is a deed of strong moral character. Mercury, the communication planet, and Pluto, the mysterious master of transformation, align in the highly responsible realm of Capricorn, reminding us of what we intend to do and helping us to follow through.
March 21-April 19
Loyalty is a quality you give to your loved ones, and they depend on you this week to honor the relationship with your faithfulness. You'll be appreciated and praised for your loyalty, though it's not difficult for you to give. In fact, it is both your pleasure and a path to enhanced self-esteem and a sense of purpose.
April 20-May 20
Even though you've been doing a certain task for years, you have yet to master the endeavor. Your training was probably spotty from the beginning, and you had to teach yourself. This week you'll get the opportunity to learn how the pros do it. A few tips and tricks are all it takes to up your game a few notches.
May 21 - June 21
You'll be attractive to all, including some you'd rather not be attractive to. Create barricades so you'll be invulnerable to insidious time wasters. Your time is the most precious commodity you have. One who steals and squanders your attention is a thief. Categorize them as such. Know your purpose and stay on it.
June 22-July 22
The events of this week will have staying power. You'll hold on to the emotional charge. Write a letter to the person who is on your mind in the early week. If it turns out to be an angry letter, then you'll be glad you got those emotions out. And you'll also be glad if you destroy the letter instead of mailing it.
July 23 - August 22
High energy is your trademark. Why walk across the street when you can do a back-handspring into a somersault and finish with a roundhouse kick? Well, at least the "inside you" will be doing this while the "outside you" merely looks confident, vital and ready. Someone new is attracted to your vibrant presence.
August 23-September 22
You have many positive experiences associated with a certain person. You may be in love with these memories and the way you feel around this person instead of the actual person. Your relationship will further grow and deepen when you make an effort to know and understand your object of affection.
September 23 - October 23
This will be an easygoing week, as soon as you make that your intention. Though you'll be challenged by unforeseen events, it's nothing worth stressing over. Furthermore, if you choose not to take offense to the weird suggestions and requests made of you, you'll find something of great value in the experience.
October 24 - November 21
There is someone you should forgive. Not forgiving this person may seem easier, but it keeps you from moving forward with your life. It's probable that you don't even have to have a direct communication with this person in order to forgive him or her. You can forgive alone. Create a ritual to make it official.
November 22 - December 21
You will be ablaze with brilliant ideas this week, and you'll generously offer them up. Your contributions are of great value — perhaps more helpful than what other people are bringing to the conversation. Just remember that nobody likes to be interrupted. Attention to your tone and delivery will help you be heard.
December 22 - January 19
When you know someone well, you can find that person the perfect gift. The question this week is: How well do you know yourself? Are you enjoying and using what you get for yourself? If not, it's time to get to know yourself a little better. The process will be as delightful as getting to know a new best friend.
January 20 - February 18
From your shoes to the dining room chair to the wallpaper on your computer, your choice is your style. You'll spend a lot of time making decisions this week because you realize that your choice will communicate to the world who you are. But don't agonize over things. Who you are is, after all, always changing.
February 19 - March 20
You don't really need to improve. There are plenty of people who love, accept and admire you just as you are. But that's not the point. You enjoy growing and developing your interests. And that's what will drive you to endeavor a new program this week. You will get a thrill just signing up for the challenge.
