ARIES (March 21-April 19). Get inspired. Once you’re charged up, you will meet every challenge with clear eyes and a full heart. This is one of the reasons people are drawn to you. It’s also why you end up doing more than your fair share of the work. But this week someone steps up and helps out — the beginning of a beautiful partnership.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be in a similar position to others, but you will respond with a different attitude. You’ll see the advantages of taking charge. Those who wait passively for a rescue are stuck in a fairy tale. You are more interested in making the noble choices that cast you as the real-life hero of your own story.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You aren’t the wishy-washy type, yet a situation has you hesitant to make a decision — and for good reason. Someone else’s desire creates a temporary fog over your mind’s window. When you stop worrying about the other person, you realize that you already know the answer. Listen inward, and it will ring clear.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve been thinking about upping your game with some kind of physical change — perhaps whitening your teeth, changing your hair or losing weight. You don’t need to undergo any expensive treatments in order to be more attractive. You’ll be stunning when you work the wonderful attributes you already have.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). An unusual coincidence causes you to revisit a past grief. It’s a little painful, but there’s an opportunity for healing. Your sensitive nature is inclined to shy away, but you’ve always listened to your bigger self. Open your heart, get in there and do what needs to be done. By the weekend you’ll be stronger than ever.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your friends are proud of your achievement, even if they haven’t been as vocal as you’d wish. In your absence, they marvel at your determination and natural talents. This week marks an important anniversary, so put some thought into how you can best celebrate. You have a lot to be envied!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be the leader. Your charming style will help people open up and trust you, and yet you can’t be too nice. Whether things go right or wrong, it will be you who will be held responsible. There will be a point when you get serious and take control. Ask astute questions, and then be quiet and listen.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Long ago, you learned to grow up and let go of your unrealistic standards of perfection. Holding on to immature fantasies causes a person not to appreciate or even see the wonderful way the world actually is. Now a friend of yours needs a reality check, and you are just the one to help this person through the transition.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your thoughts will have a tendency to run away this week. One happy thought leads to another, and soon you’re in a fantastic mood. When you have a negative thought, the same pattern happens and you land in a funk. Physical activity keeps you present. Daily exercise will help you lead your mind well.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Take steps to build your confidence. Refrain from judging yourself against the next-door neighbor, and definitely steer clear of making comparisons between you and the person featured on the magazine cover. This is about you. You will be spectacularly attractive to the same degree that you believe in yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re in no mood for romantic games. Still, when someone makes you work for his or her affection, you do appreciate it all the more once it’s earned. So why not be a little more of a challenge for the object of your affection? It won’t be difficult. Just don’t over-give to the point where others take you for granted.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The role you fill in an organization or family is not one that just anyone could step into. It requires compassion and depth. You are willing to accept the complexities even though you may never fully understand them. This acceptance is a wise and soulful choice that will be simple for you to make this week.
THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You go into this year with greater amounts of inner sunshine, which helps you attract just what you need. You’re terrific with money and figuring out how best to spend it, save it and invest it. Friends connect you with special advantages in October. November brings a fancy event, and you’ll show up strong, attracting interest in your business and personal life, too. A long-held romantic notion is fulfilled in the winter. There’s a personal breakthrough in January. You travel best in May.
