This week’s birthdays: The year is filled with perks, pleasures and conveniences. You’ll be wise to celebrate each small wonder — they just keep multiplying when you do. A special relationship shines bright through the fall. In January, you could make a big commitment with this person. Legal issues are resolved in March. Finances take a turn for the better in April. A spring fitness kick or a change in your diet has you looking and feeling better than ever. An investment opportunity in June is very lucky.
March 21-April 19
A new endeavor has your interest this week. There are those who make it look easy, but you can appreciate the numerous steps involved, the trial and error process, and the years of practice that it takes to master any skill. Because you understand what it takes, you’ll do well with this activity. Your ideal teacher is a Leo.
April 20-May 20
There is a big deal to work through. You’ll be mustering up some enthusiasm for the task at hand, though excitement may not be your first response. That’s what makes you a classy individual. You’re able to choose the most effective emotion for the situation you’re in instead of letting your feelings control you.
May 21 - June 21
You are getting along well with those you see daily. In fact, the more time you spend with a certain person the more you like him or her. This is because of something called the “mere exposure effect.” Use it to your advantage. Make sure you are spending plenty of time with that person you want to like you.
June 22-July 22
You are a master transformer. No, not a character in a comic book, though you do wield a kind of superpower when you think about it. Just remember that difficult time in your past and how you really turned the situation around. Use that memory as a touchstone to help you stay in touch with your strengths this week.
July 23 - August 22
You won’t be sure of what you want until you try it on. Growing requires experimentation. There’s a fine line between stretching yourself and trying to be someone you’re not. It’s hard to tell the difference between these two dynamics now, but if you keep your sense of humor, you’ll learn and do great either way.
August 23-September 22
No matter how great you’ve become at multitasking, trying to do more than one thing at a time will be detrimental to you this week. However, you’re likely to create happiness, health and wealth when you slow down and concentrate on one action, stick with it until its completion and then move on to the next.
September 23 - October 23
You’re a visionary. You have ideas that will improve conditions where you work and live. Someone with a more conservative point of view might be holding the purse strings tightly closed. Luckily, you can sway this person with your vivid descriptions. It will be a minimal expense for you to brighten the whole scene.
October 24 - November 21
In many ways, you cater to the needs of your loved ones. It’s often appropriate and easy to do so. But lately you feel constricted and tense about your contributions. It’s a sign that enough is enough. You can’t keep compromising your soul without repercussions. Get some time to yourself even if you have to steal it.
November 22 - December 21
Conflict resolution will be your thing. You won’t be the one arguing — more likely, you’ll be an innocent bystander whose astute observations are the key to creating peace on earth. It’s all in how you say it, and when. With your diplomacy, you can moderate between even the most difficult personalities.
December 22 - January 19
When you have to, you do your best. If there’s no pressure, you’ll take breaks you don’t need, phone calls from people you don’t even want to talk to and way too much time to finish the job. So if there’s no incentive for you to work efficiently, build one in. Declare a deadline and a consequence.
January 20 - February 18
Are you still enthusiastic about a project now that you’re in the middle phases? Anyone can get psyched about a fresh project, but those who maintain a high level of excitement even when the newness wears off will earn the respect of all. Prove that you have what it takes with your consistent actions.
February 19 - March 20
There may be a slight imbalance of work, or someone may owe you money — not enough to turn into an issue, though. Score keeping would only drain the sweetness out of the personal rapport you’ve worked so hard to establish. If you basically trust the other person, things are sure to even out soon. Have faith.
