March 21-April 19
Your sign governs pioneering, and you are full of grand ideas and the energy needed to carry them out. You are not known for excellent timing, though, and that's no accident, Aries! Everything, right away, is not a timetable it's compulsion. Don't allow your ego to compel you into action. Iinstead, move at a pace you can handle emotionally.
April 20-May 20
Feeling anxious and overwhelmed is sometimes unavoidable, but other times giving in to those emotions can be an inconvenient and masochistic form of escapism. If you can balance your blah needs, like paying the bills and charging your phone, with your needs for love and creativity, you may find that you're more stressed but less anxious. Deal with the real.
May 21-June 21
Staying focused on the good stuff is awesome, but only if it doesn't require you to repress your fears and worries. Right now, what you resist will persist like a MF, so be willing to deal constructively with your life. Instead of fretting or hiding, make one list of all your concerns, then another of what you can do about them. Let go of the rest for now.
June 22-July 22
You are en route to major and deep changes, and there's no place like home. The meaningful nature of your emotional transitions may be forcing everything else to slow down or take a back seat, but that's OK. Find your inner sanctum by catching up with your inner recluse.
July 23-Aug. 22
Investigate the line that exists between being foolhardy and not being fear-driven. You have some choices to make, and no matter what, it's essential that you be honest with yourself about your motives. Don't pretend you're paying back your debts on principle when you just don't want to see zeros in your account.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
How can you have such strong yet frail shoulders, dear Virgo? You take on all of the world's ills and carry them like Atlas with his ball. You can't fix it, or will it away, Tough Guy. Take a leap of faith and trust that once you've done your part, things will work out on their own. Stop hitting yourself with that worry stick.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Don't let cloudiness slow you down. You may find that your thinking has gotten a bad case of the fuzzies, like the SF fog has spread into your noggin. But don't fret. This too, like the fog, will pass. Start something new or reinject energy into your recent projects and let the unknown in your life clarify itself when the time is right.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You're trying to make a decision by rattling the magic 8 ball or reading your horoscope. Don't do it! This week, make decisions for yourself. Take all the advice you can from oracles, friends, and strangers, but in the end, you alone are responsible for you. Intuition is awesome, but without a clear process of evaluation, it's likely to lead you astray.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
When did you start doubting yourself so much? You are poised to affect change in a key way and you've got all you need to pull it off. Your energy is high and you've got skills. But your worries are throwing off your sense of timing, and that only brings more to fret over. Consult with your friends for a reality check.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Jeanette Winterson said it best when she wrote:"You play, you win; you play, you lose. You play." This is a time where the most important thing is to stay in the game and not give up. You're struggling with a heavy heart and negative expectations. Don't jockey for power or accept defeat. Instead, find a sense of humor about your situation and see what there is to be learned from it.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Sometimes you've just gotta pucker up and drink the lemonade from all those lemons life has handed you. There's no deal to be struck with the fates.
