ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have reason to feel confident about your work and will wow your clients, customers and superiors with your excellent attitude. Temper your self-assurance with a knowledge of your vulnerabilities. When you stay in touch with your relative place in the scheme of things, you see opportunities that are real and lucrative.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There you go again, wanting something with a price tag higher than your bank account will allow. You’re in luck, though, because there are plenty of ways to get what you want without buying it. Rent, trade services, borrow, share . the list is only limited by your creativity. Your best brainstorms happen on Monday.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Remember that fantasy you used to have about a distant relative who leaves you money? Well, you could still make a version of this come true for someone else. Start an account for a young person, or endeavor to some other grand gesture of generosity. You’ll feel rich and attract more money than you put out.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It is said that the best thing in life is to desire what you already have. But if you can’t seem to appreciate your surroundings because you are so focused on wanting something else, don’t feel bad. The very nature of desire is not to be satisfied. Don’t listen to people who try to make you feel guilty for being human.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you thought you were busy before, this week is a new high in activity. While on the run, it may seem that there’s not enough time to straighten up. But if you make your environment a priority, magical windows of time open. And your finances get better, too, because you realize what you have and what you don’t need.
THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You will get younger this year. Your attention to optimal health will improve every aspect of your life. Regular exercise elevates your mood, thoughts and relationships. This month is particularly productive, and by the end of August you will have finished a major project. In September, you make a trade-off with no guarantee that it will benefit you, only a good feeling about the deal. November brings laughter and closeness with someone special. A new adventure begins in February.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may think you don’t have anything to add to a situation, but go ahead and try anyway. Once you volunteer, you’ll realize how to fit in, contribute and feel wonderful about your involvement. You’ll also discover that the quality you take for granted in yourself is actually not so common. You’re a true talent.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can’t praise yourself enough this week. Of course, this is best done silently — if you were to go around proclaiming how awesome you are, people would think there was something wrong with you. If you keep affirming inwardly how well you’re doing, others will feel comfortable and be attracted to your spirit.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You want your loved ones to have a fantastic time, but if you notice they are having more fun than you, there might be a momentary pang of envy. This feeling is a cue to you to tend to your immediate environment. Determine what you need in order to experience enjoyment, and then go get it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your friend isn’t exactly keeping track of all the times he or she has helped you, and yet mutuality becomes important this week. Keep the energy positive by making sure to reciprocate recent kindnesses. Otherwise, a feeling of imbalance may creep into the relationship, making both parties uncomfortable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t need to be in any special mood to make your life a success. You will take action because it’s who you are — regardless of your state of mind. Anyway, you always feel better once you get going. Apply your amazing self-discipline to the realm of relationships, creating positive connections.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve been working hard and need to take measures to avoid burnout. Sure, you consider your work to be fun, but that’s not enough to keep you from hitting the burnout point. Give thought to your dream vacation scenario. Start planning and saving for your sweet escape. Cancer and Leo are helpful advisers.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your powers of imagination require an outlet. This is your happiness key. You don’t need formal structures around you in order to express your creative nature. Invent a venue. Have a concert on your front porch, or exhibit your painting at your local library. It might feel like showing off, but it’s your gift to the world.
