March 21-April 19
You keep on looking around you for answers instead of turning your attention inward — and it's just not working. With both Saturn and Pluto trying to kick your butt, now is the time to check in with your motives and general inner workings, no matter how big of a drag that seems. Avoid power struggles by taking responsibility.
April 20-May 20
Even if you were in the right place at the right time wearing the right shoes, you wouldn't know it. All that fretting about what you don't have, or what might happen, has distracted you from what you have secured. Make a list of everything you have to be grateful for and check it twice. Take your fears down a notch.
May 21-June 21
Don't let vanity get in the way of creating a life that suits you. You are too focused on making things look like they're great while you feel like crapola. It's OK to let some cracks into your façade. Nothing is lonelier than feeling lonesome around your friends. Share some of your less fabulous feelings with those you trust.
June 22-July 22
Cancer, your tough outer shell is great protection for your sensitive emotional self. It's also a liability when you're not being careful. Right now, your fierceness may want to take charge when it's your gentle ways that need to step forward. Be open to standing your ground without making such a big deal about it, and resist succumbing to your inner bully.
July 23-Aug. 22
This week is excellent for taking emotional risks: gambles that allow you to connect to people, your goals, and other things in a new way. No good will come from barreling through stuff, Leo. Look at the feelings you've been sweeping under the rug and have that talk with the folks you need to check in with.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
A hopeful attitude in the face of uncertainty can aid you in getting where you want to go. Rouse yourself with positive notions about your future, instead of dread and what ifs, and you will still reach your desired goals, but with less wear and tear. Allow hope to drive you forwards, and keep your feet on the ground.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Into every life a little rain must fall, and that means you need to be equipped with an umbrella, some galoshes, and/or a resilient attitude. This week, don't avoid, evade, or rationalize the pains on your path. Nurture yourself through your troubles so you can let them go when you are ready. Strive to rise to the occasion.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Don't over-think things. Your sign is ruler of compulsions and obsessions, so this should be no small task, Scorp. Recognize your habit of reworking the same ideas in your mind. Practice redirecting your thoughts in a more productive (or at least less destructive) direction. Play nice in your noggin.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
If you get involved in power struggles, you will find yourself at a disadvantage. Sometimes a fight finds you even when you're doing your best to keep the peace. Either way, standing your ground is grand as long as you can hold that ground. Keep your energies focused on yourself and be an activist when you have more to give.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You value camaraderie and need friendship more than you like to let on. Look at what you need from your pals, and what you have to offer them. You are changing and your relationships are likely to follow suit, like it or not. Be flexible! If you co-create your relationships with others, everyone is more likely to get what they want.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You may be riddled with uncertainty this week, but don't despair. It's time to formulate a plan of your own design that allows you to propel yourself where you want to go. You'll do best if you stay close to the drawing board. That way, when it's time to execute your ideas, you'll be better prepared than you are now.
Feb. 19-March 20
You probably don't know it, but you're ready to step out on your own.
