ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may not think of yourself as a domestic wizard, but you’re actually pretty talented, especially when it comes to cooking. That one thing you like to make — it can’t be beat. Whip up some to share at work. The gesture will impress your peers and make everyone happier. Generosity comes back to you threefold.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). They say it takes five nice comments to balance out one mean one. Someone in your family has four more to go, but don’t hold your breath. Not everyone knows this rule. You’ll be better off if you quickly forgive the grievance and move on. You’ll make astounding progress on a current project.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A storm of excitement is brewing just over the horizon. It may seem as though this is something that is happening to you, but really it’s happening because of you. You’ve been concocting this delicious piece of personal weather, and finally you will get to experience the wondrous culmination of your efforts.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your positive attitude will serve as armor, protecting you and saving you from getting dragged down by piddling daily stresses. Most of the stuff that could upset you will bounce right off as you think, “Who cares?” You’ve got more important things to do, and you’ll be very busy doing them this week.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A shift in leadership leaves you wondering where your responsibilities will fall. Time will show this to be a fortuitous turn of events. Since you work well with a broad set of people, you’ll find your way without much stress. Others won’t have such an easy time, though. Your friendly countenance will help them through.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your dreams this week, both during the day and at night, will be vivid. Note any recurring characters or motifs. Writing them down will often get you closer to understanding. Your imagination holds the key to lifting your situation into a more joyful and free place. Thursday, you’ll be ready to take practical action.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It can be embarrassing when your cell phone accidentally calls someone from your pants pocket, buttons seemingly depressed at random. Consider that this outreach might not be such a coincidence. Technology is just another way for the universe to assist you in connecting with others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Increase your involvement in the life of someone you love. Showing up in this person’s world isn’t always easy for you. You have to make a big effort in order to fit in with their friends, get into their interests and feel at ease in their “habitat.” The relationship will flourish, however, when you do this very important work.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Waiting for just the right moment to celebrate is not advised. That big fancy event in your future might wind up being too stuffy and pressurized to really be fun. Pack in the larks and laughs now. The casual atmosphere and your excellent company will prove a fantastic combination for spontaneous joy.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s wonderful to be generous when you have extra. But when you don’t have much, that’s the true test of the depth of your generosity. You’ll see many opportunities to give of yourself, some of them easy, others quite difficult. You relish the chance to show the world your exemplary character.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is something you desire at such a hidden level that even you are not fully aware of it. But you’ll become more conscious as the week develops. One hint is that you will be jealous of the person who possesses this quality or thing already. Regard feelings of envy as merely signals to show you the way.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The thing about making plans far in advance is that you can never be sure that “future you” is going to feel like doing the thing that “past you” arranged. You currently have a very accurate assessment of what “future you” will want, though, so go ahead. Be bold. Set dates and buy tickets. Enroll in a distant adventure.
THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You want freedom, and you place yourself in scenarios that afford you plenty of room to explore, experiment and experience the wonders of the world. The next six weeks bring romantic whims and moments of vivid connection with someone special. There will be a happy reunion in November. January brings a financial decision, and it affects where you’ll live. A business you’ll be involved in takes off in March. There will be a sweet new influence in your life in June.
