March 21-April 19
Sometimes a detour brings you down a road that you would never otherwise follow. It can be a good thing or not. This week you run the risk of not seeing the roses on your path, just 'cause they are not where you thought they should be. Don't let surprises throw you off, pal.
April 20-May 20
If you don't assert your needs and limits when you have the chance, your insides can become like so many clogged pipes: all backed up and weak. Don't wait until you reach the edge, Taurus — this week you need to kindly and firmly let the world know where you're at.
May 21-June 21
Your relationships are like your belly, Gemini — they grow or shrink depending on how you feed 'em. You can't keep on leaning on the past, because you and the people you are connected to have changed. Stay emotionally checked in so that things grow in the direction you want them to.
June 22-July 22
Even if you are stressed out so much that you can't think straight, you need to deal with your practical needs, Cancer. The best thing you can do is to cope with small, yet meaningful tasks that you can measure your success in; that'll help you develop confidence for the bigger stuff.
July 23-Aug. 22
When you're in self-defense mode it's easier to drum up the energy to take a stand than in easy times. This week, even if nothing is forcing you to improve your life, be brave in the face of your own complacency. Improve things, Leo, and do it because you want a life worth living.
Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You can analyze your situation, make sense of all the details and write a doctorate on the topic, but that won't help you do anything, Virgo. Understanding has high value, but it's what you do with what you know that counts. Put your money where your mouth is.
Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The things that give your heart a case of the sads are exactly what you need to be focusing, Libra. Learn from the wisdom of your own emotions exactly what is bumming you out and how best to deal with it. Time for you to make some major movement on some old baggage.
Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Love is a gift that doesn't always feel good, but is always precious. Trust in the changes that are happening with the people or things you care for most, but don't be passive! Stay dynamically involved in the shift that you want to see happen, and leave your fears at the door.
Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You'll get nothing of value done with that bad attitude, pal, so march into your bedroom, turn off your PDA and lock the door. Make sure to get quality all-alone time this week so that you can clear your heart and mind and figure out what you need next.
Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Take risks with your innermost emotional life, Cappy. You are meant to improve relations with your home, your family and loved ones (include yourself in that mess, pal). Don't wait for hardship to invest in the ones you love; open up to them now, and watch things go next level on you.
Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Don't run around like a chicken with its head cut off! You're scattered, and it's time to focus your thinking on where you want to go and how you wanna get there. Identify the barriers in front if you — whether they're internal or not — and lay the foundations to move beyond them, Aquarius.
Feb. 19-March 20
You've got to participate in improving the conditions of your life! You're going through some major stuff, and while it's good to lean on others it'd be a mistake to forget to figure out what you think. Deal with frustrations, don't hide from them, Pisces.
