Aries (March 20-April 19)
You seem devoted to making a name for yourself, and you’re succeeding. Just make sure you’re cultivating the right one. There are many forms of manipulation; some of them are truly productive, like convincing people to work for a cause everyone believes in. That is the kind of reputation you want to be working for. At the moment you need to apply less pressure and more in the way of reasoning.
Taurus (April 19- May 20)
Professionally and in many other ways, this is shaping up to be one of the most exciting years of your life. The sense of potential that has seemed hung up on just this side of true is starting to tip over the threshold. As you’ve learned a number of times before and love to forget, the stars in their courses may guide us, but it’s we who must add the energy and motivation. Direct it right where you need to.
Gemini (May 20- June 21)
You’ve finally figured out a basic plan; I suggest you keep it that way, because you’ll need to be flexible as your home planet Mercury changes directions and picks up speed. For a while, you may find yourself revising and rehashing old goals; then comes that moment when it’s time for a whole new agenda. You may have no clue what that will be, but once you see it, it will be about noticing the obvious.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Depending on faith is a matter of common sense as much as it is your basic constitution. However, with so much wheeling and dealing going on, it’s time to rely on analysis and intelligence right up to your maximum of 49 percent. You will make better decisions and live more elegantly using both sides of your brain. The people who you appear to be drawing like a beacon are depending on you for just exactly that.
Leo (July 22- Aug. 23)
You can’t make up other people’s minds for them, but you can enjoy the unusual life changes they’re going through, and for sure you can be supportive. There is not merely a ‘lesson’ in there for you but rather the opportunity for an adventure, and you’re not in it alone. You are being called to a leadership role, and the main issue you’re being asked to address is the difference between the past and the future.
Virgo (Aug. 23- Sep. 22)
You are standing in a miracle zone. You know you’re smart; we all love you for that, it’s true. But you’ve suddenly discovered this gift of not judging yourself. You’ve figured out that you’re bigger than all those petty issues for which you typically critique yourself (and by extension, others). This is very good news, and if you keep looking at the world with open eyes, you will like what (and in particular, who) you see.
Libra (Sep. 22 – Oct. 23)
You need to be free — freer than you think society says you should. Freer than you want your mother to know about. Nobody likes to admit they are snagged in cultural moral dogma living inside a box. I have news for you. The box you’ve indeed been occupying has grown way too small for the high-voltage nature of your creative passion, your erotic nature and your insatiable drive to have fun. Come out where we can see your lovely face.
Scorpio (Oct. 23- Nov. 22)
You’ve just come through a strange bout with insecurity, as if you woke up one morning and decided there was no way you could possibly fit. Take this as a reminder that you’re determined above all else to be an individual. Remember, this is partly how you feel, and partly what you dare to do. You are often content to live in your imagination; now you know this is not nearly enough.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 22)
You are a natural born inventor. Do you ever think of yourself that way? Your psychic engines strive to conjure new ideas; to develop a fresh viewpoint of life. If you allow for this possibility, you will be able to guide your thoughts in the direction of doing precisely that, which will be easier than trying to match the world’s expectation of tried, true and boring. You are on the cusp of something big. Keep going.
Capricorn (Dec. 22- Jan. 20)
The world thinks it’s in a financial crisis. I suggest you take the attitude that they can have it if they want it; you want something else and you are fully capable of it. There is a theory that all wealth comes from the Earth. There is another theory that all wealth is a product of minds joining together for the common good.
Aquarius (Jan. 20- Feb. 19)
You are a truly social person in a deeply introspective phase. The story of your life for many years to come is about balancing out this seeming paradox. In truth, it’s not a paradox at all; you need to be an individual before you can relate to others in a solid and authentic way. The more you emphasize the identity that you think of as your soul, rather than your ego or personality, the happier you will be.
Pisces (Feb. 19- March 20)
Tune into how deeply you know yourself. That feeling you live with of being different than you often encounter; like you’re from a different dimension — this is your deeply introspective nature. I suggest you take comfort in that, rather than feeling awkward. Recognize how many people are far more insecure than you are, and notice how much you’ve learned from doubt. Now it’s time for something bolder.
