ARIES (Mar. 20 - Apr. 20) — You may find you have energy to get more things done than you have been able to accomplish recently. Take advantage of this energy and pay close attention to ideas you're having now, for they may turn out to be truly great ideas later on.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 21) — Great week to step back and take a break. Say NO to all those people who are asking too much of you and make sure you are paying attention to your boundaries. It would be easy for you to give too much away right now, so make sure you say No and mean it. Others must learn to take care of themselves, and you over doing it to help them, doesn't help them in the long run.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 22) —You may find that what you have, in the past, been unable to make real, may begin to show signs of movement in the direction of completion or actualization. HOORAY! This is the week to spend money to make money and a great time to get organized or use your organizational skills to accomplish what you want.
CANCER (June 22 - July 23) — Spend some time with the people you love. Sharing good feelings and good food are the things to be seeking out. Take pleasure where it shows itself and stay focused on the good things and the things that are working and, for now, forget the rest. If you get into looking at the glass half empty you will start feeling really icky and miss the chance to feel all the good feelings which are around you. The glass is not only half full; you will also find that there is a pitcher right at hand waiting for you to fill your glass.
LEO (July 23 - Aug. 23) —What does it mean to be authentic? The authentic self never makes its choices or responds from guilt, duty or obligation. To act out of guilt or make choices from a sense of obligation takes us away from our authentic self. If we hold to our authenticity we eventually end up truly desiring the things we would have done out of guilt or duty anyway. Choose to live authentically, for at the end of the day, it will be you that you have to live with and you are the one who will have to stand by your choices, not anyone else.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 23) — Have you ever thought about what drives our ego? Deepak Chopra once said that it is only the ego that knows how to be serious ('serious' comes from the word 'grave'). So, when we are being serious about things in our life we can know that our ego is. Knowing this we then have the opportunity to ask ourselves why our ego is invested and perhaps we can then make a different choice. If you find yourself in a battle of wills with someone, why not really check in with yourself and decide if your ego needs to be involved in the situation. Is it your ego that you are living for, or something more?
LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 23) — How do you define success for yourself? Does it have to do with money, or lifestyle, or quality of life or relationships perhaps? Get clear on what success is. You may find that what you have been told is success is not your definition of success at all. Establish your own meaning for what living a truly successful life is, and then live by it. Live the life you want and feel success where it is in your life and where it matters most to you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 22) — Great week to take some time and play with the people you love. Seek out those people who you know love you and support you and spend time with them. You may find that you haven't been paying attention to those people who love you the most — take steps to change this. There are more people who love you and will help you than you may believe, so take a look around and ask those for who helping you would bring them joy and finally ask for help. They have been waiting.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) — Reviewing your life and finding all the places in the past where you can bring up the sorrow is really not the best use of your energy. Also, try not to get sucked into a triangular situation. A triangular situation is one in which there is you and any two people. If you have a problem with someone go directly to them or shut up. If others want to talk dirt about coworkers or other friends, put a stop to it before they start. Triangulating will only perpetuate a wound and there is enough woundedness to go around — you don't need to add to it by getting into a gossipy situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 - Jan. 20) — Detachment is key this week. Find ways to honor those you love by allowing them to make their own choices and do things in their own way, even if to you they seem to be making a huge mistake. Make a point of paying attention to where in your life your okayness is connected to what others are doing or not doing. If you find yourself being bummed out because of someone else's choices take it as a sign that you are too attached and find a way to remain okay whatever their choices. Love those around you by loosening your grip.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) — What a great week to give energy to those small creative ideas which have been bouncing around. If you don't have a hobby, find one. If you do have a hobby, this is a great week to really get into it. I know it may sound odd to dedicate real energy to those things we do as an aside in our lives, yet this week is a call to do that very thing. These little creative things that you do will make the energy in all the other areas of your life much more harmonious and enjoyable. Try it and see what happens.
PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20) — This week's energy is about really getting clear on who you believe yourself to be. Try something new and see if you like it. It would be terrible for you to not get to enjoy things you love simply because you have never allowed yourself to be exposed to them. Look for moments of shear amazement this week, as you discover things about yourself you never thought possible. You may find that you are more than you believed you could be, or you may find that in some areas you are less than others have wanted you to be. If you know yourself well enough, then you will be able to know when someone else's expectations of you are unrealistic.
NOTE: If you were born at the end or beginning of a sign, read the sign before and after your birthday.
