Oct 21-27: Feeling blocked by others may be valid, but if you act from those feelings, you'll only feed the fire

Making peace with shitty circumstances isn't the same as being passive in the face of them. If you can accept that your boss is a jerk, your date is insensitive about your dog, you are terrible with money, or whatever else is plaguing you, then you can actually do something about it. Stop wasting your energy on fighting what you can't control.
April 20-May 20
Watch your defensiveness right now, because it's not likely to protect whatever you are trying to keep safe. Feeling indignant or blocked by others may be valid, but if you act from those feelings, you'll only be feeding the fire. Get in touch with your emotions and find a way to support yourself. Be open to the support all around you.
May 21-June 21
It's all about staying in the present moment, Gem. Enjoy the fruits of your life, even if what you wanted was an orchard and you only have a tree or two. Invest in yourself by having gratitude for what you've got. Decisions are best made a different week, when you are clearer about where you want to go.
June 22-July 22
Don't linger in the land of over-processing. Your anxieties are mounting, and there is no brilliant perspective that will change that. Focus your energy on building your self-esteem so you can get empowered. This is the wrong time to give up or concede. Recharge your energy so you can get executive with your life.
July 23-Aug. 22
No matter how overwhelming things are, remember the old motto: "Where there's a will, there's a way." The trick is to not impose your willfulness on others, but to strive to embody the changes you want to see in your life instead. If something doesn't work when you put your best into it, ask yourself why you keep participating.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Goals are so important; they help us to have a sense of direction. Now is the time to review your ambitions and see where you are in relation to them. Don't be scared to change your mind (and your plans) if that's what feels right. Remember that getting happy needs to be on your to-do list.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
They say success is the best revenge. Struggling against adversity won't get you far this week. Avoid making waves and try working with your circumstances for a while. Get it together before you strike out.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
There are no magic beans, pal. You've got to dig a hole; plant those suckers in a nice, sunny spot; and remember to water regularly. The thing is, growth takes time. Make sure you are in a position you can afford to maintain, because you may find yourself locked in to it for a while. When in doubt, take baby steps.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
A major change is coming your way, Sag, and holding on tight will stop the whole thing up. Be willing to step into the unknown, but don't forget to forge a plan B in case you need it. If you can get into a position where you can safely take risks, you may slow some things down but it'll be worth it.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Pushing things toward your desired end is one of your great skills, Cap, but can sometimes get in your way. There comes a time when all you need to do is give that ball a little push and it will run off on its own. What's a busy bee to do when there's nothing left to do? Try enjoying some honey, of course! Enjoy today while tomorrow develops.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Boldly encounter truth this week. If you are way in debt and living in denial, it's time to rip open those red envelopes and call back those creditors. You are in a great spot to deal with what's real, but first you have to acknowledge said realness. It may harsh your mellow, but bubbles were meant to get broken, buddy.
Feb. 19-March 20
You are changing in ways that don't always feel in control, and it can get a bit awkward sometimes.
