Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
Although the situation is tense, this could be a transformational moment for you if you’re willing to reexamine your relationship to money. Yes, I know this is ultimately about knowing your true value and that recognition will be more precise if you are willing to reflect on your financial situation and how to improve it.
Taurus April 20-May 20
The solution to the tension is reaching out to significant others and making it a priority to resolve your differences. I’m not suggesting you surrender what matters to you; I’m simply advising that if you can find the neutral space to listen to the feelings and ideas of those you love and care about, you’ll find ways to compromise.
Gemini May 21-June 21
Identify what would bring you joy during these tumultuous times and then, rather than brooding over the state of the world, devote yourself to endeavors that feed your happiness. I’m not asking you to ignore the areas that would benefit from your help; I’m suggesting you take care of yourself before you care for others.
Cancer June 22-July 22
You’re tired of the fussing and fighting and you’re longing for an end to the mean-spirited exchanges that seem to be everywhere. Good—now the task at hand is turning your attention to persistent problems and finding creative solutions that include the needs of all concerned. It won’t be easy, but it will be worthwhile.
Leo July 23-August 22
Try not to let the stress and strain of this T-Square dim your light—it’s your time of the year, which means it’s your time to shine brightly, even if you feel like lying low and staying home. Do whatever it is that makes you happy and stokes your fire—wherever you are, you’ll find activities to sustain your enthusiasm.
Virgo August 23-September 22
Sometimes a deep, intimate conversation with someone who has known you through thick and thin works like a remedy for the soul, so don’t hesitate to seek the comfort and consolation of a good friend who isn’t gonna judge you if you start to bitch. Even if things are going well, sometimes it’s healthy to whine for a little while.
Libra September 23-October 22
The tumult of the week challenges your self-esteem and the result is that you’re second-guessing yourself unnecessarily. Of course, a self-inventory every once in a while is always a good thing—it keeps us honest about personal growth—but concentrating on what we perceive to be flaws is often about judging ourselves too harshly.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
It’s essential to assert yourself but it might be wise to be cautious about being too demanding of yourself or others. If you’re unhappy with the situation, take a deep breath and consider how you would like to tell someone to take it down a notch or two. Err on the side of caution and you’ll create allies eager to work with you.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
The secret of your success is maintaining an inner equilibrium that you can rely on no matter how intense the external world may become. If you meditate, increase your meditation. If you don’t meditate, try to start. If music is what shifts your mood, listen to the music you love. The key is to keep your internal world peaceful.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
It might be a good idea to get a change of air. If you can’t go on a vacation, turn your staycation into an exploration of local venues you’ve never given much thought to. Whatever you decide to do, make sure it is a departure from your regular routine—nothing is wrong, but sometimes it’s good to challenge your habits.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
See if you can channel the intensities of the week into your career efforts. This isn’t about blind ambition; it’s about breaking the spell of any stresses and strains and focusing the excess energy on how to improve your professional situation. Side-stepping external demands will help you stay calm and steady in several situations.
Pisces February 19-March 20
Every once in a while it’s helpful to examine what you believe in and why. Sometimes it’s an easy process to identify belief systems that are meaningful, but often it’s a disturbing process, especially if you’ve outgrown certain ideas but haven’t found appropriate replacements. Take your time with this process and you’ll make tangible progress.
