ARIES (March 21-April 19). Anything can become toxic if you get too much of it. Fresh water, sunshine, even mildness and moderation itself has its dangerous levels. This week is about resetting and recalibrating in the name of detoxification. You'll be wise to choose one area to focus on at …

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're so accustomed to doing the right thing, being kind and behaving as a good citizen that you really don't have to look for opportunities to be a force for good in the world. The chance to contribute comes up all the time, and it's second instinct for you to ma…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Making friends with your body is your top priority now, as you'll be asking it to do a lot for you this week. All the things that seemed tedious when you were younger, from stretching to eating your vegetables, will keep you in good stead. Prevention is no fun to t…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). A wrapped gift is an experience in and of itself, regardless of what the gift happens to be. You care about the fun of the moment, building a ritual and mystery, setting up an expectation and enjoying a process. You'll be very successful this week as you apply this…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is no perfect way to live your life. There's not even a perfect way to live your day. This is a week to avoid striving or pining for some ideal. The magic happens when you focus on getting comfortable with your choices and accepting them -- and yourself -- as…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Memory is a perfectly imperfect and slightly magical informational filing system in which the files have a way of multiplying, subtracting and rewriting themselves, condensing into something more vivid and beautiful or expanding into a fog of vagueness. You can't t…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). People do strange things for attention. It's difficult to make sense of their actions, which are mostly involuntary, of the moment and baffling, even to themselves. Your superpower this week won't be figuring people out; rather, it will be tolerating their oddities…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Attractive offers don't always come from attractive entities. In fact, sweeter offers will spring from less prestigious sources. The confident will take a better deal over the more glamorous one. You're in that club. You don't need to be seen as glamorous to know y…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When wonderful things happen to you from out of the blue, it's because someone else is taking a risk. And when you're making wonderful things happen, you're taking the risk. Either way, the lesson this week is that nothing wonderful happens without people taking risks.

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Social interaction is so important to self-development this week. There's no way to simulate it. No theoretical knowledge could ever replicate the unpredictable course of human interaction. You can never duplicate the knowledge that comes from braving the wildernes…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll try to follow the instructions and play by the rules, but everyone seems to have special circumstances that warrant exceptions. Meanwhile, a project without structure and standards can't meet its own purpose. So stand back, decide what's essential, and start…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have something that the others need. There's a balance to strike. It would be wrong to withhold this sustenance, and also wrong to waste it where it can't be used or appreciated. Position yourself to be available to those who have best earned your offering or t…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's not really about the shiny prize, the big-dollar bottom line, the admiration of your peers. These are arbitrary symbols for something else. What you're really looking for is a feeling of living life on your own terms. You'll get there, too. You have a knack fo…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Getting to the outcome you desire will depend on two things -- tenacity and making a good impression. The first one is easy; just keep at it. The second is tricky. It's always more impressive not to try too hard in the room. Any trying you do before "the room" thou…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're perfectly capable of being and working alone. In fact, you prefer it sometimes. You also know that on your own, you are not a complete system. When a relationship is supportive and exciting, it gives you energy. When it's irritating, difficult, maddening, it…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Don't look back. Leave the nostalgia for another day — a day when this plan that's coming together in your mind has been already executed. There's too much important work ahead. What you did before and who you were has very little to do with this new iteration. For…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You've worked hard, and you're ready for results. There's a barrier to be cleared before the flow of bounty can reach you. Perhaps not enough people know about what you do, or maybe it's just that they are not the right people, the ones who will benefit most. You'l…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Each action you take has a reason behind it. The reason may be logical or whimsical, mysterious or faulty, but whatever it is, it's there. Nothing that happens is unmotivated. This is the principle that helps you figure out yourself and others. You'll uncover hidde…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). No person can dictate the pleasures of another. Pleasures are born of a complicated animal process and may be influenced but never commanded. This week illustrates principles of pleasure quite well. You'll be surprised by what others like and by your own delights, …

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can debunk the worries -- go through them one by one, measuring the merit of each, calculating their statistical likelihoods, confronting the root fears that live inside them. Or, you can just accept that you have trepidation and do the thing you're trying to d…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ambition's seed activates inside of you. Next comes the trepidation. Will taking on a new role upset those who've grown used to and become dependent on the person you are now? Yes. But they'll adjust. So don't think of this as something to work through. It's someth…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The only people who care about how hard the work is are the ones who might be saddled with the job. For the rest, it's all about how they are affected by the work. If you have a choice between working hard or getting the same result in an easier way, there's no glo…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Whether working on multiple projects with different goals or multiple approaches to the same goal, you'll be doing a lot at once this week. That's why it's wise to pay special attention to the little things, like where you put your phone and your keys. Give solid, …

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are different from other people in many ways. Also, everyone is different from other people in many ways. Some of those ways you consider special and positive, and others you may see as deficits, but even those can be applied to motivate you. Get on your own si…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll thrive because you're willing to adapt your offer to make it a more comfortable and all-around better fit for those who need it. Experiment. Start with small adjustments, and see how they play. Keep the lines of communication open and honest by reacting posi…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Who's to say when thinking becomes overthinking? Past the surface, commonly accepted levels, beyond the level of detail and particulars, and then through the realm of the uncomfortable and absurd, there's a place where the best ideas live. The ticket for this journ…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're very confident and capable. People will give you a lot of credit and believe that you can do anything. But because you may not wish to do the "anything" they have in mind, this is a week to be socially careful. You can make a stellar impression while being m…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's a slow, foggy start to the week. Enjoy the diffused light of the mind; it's actually a very creative headspace, feeding your unconscious. When the fog burns off, as fog does, you'll see the contrasts like you couldn't before. You'll suddenly and clearly unders…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your sense of people will be partly correct and partly biased. No one can help being biased, as it's a function of the way the human brain processes and learns. However, it's the responsibility of an evolved human to actively overcome biases. Your quest for harmony…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes you feel like you've been dropped in the middle of a movie that's outside your preferred genre. It's as if the tone of your life has gone askew. Employ familiar and comforting rituals and routines and all will come back into normal color and focus, or may…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're really wanting some groundbreaking new study, product or method to come about to help you deal with a certain problem. And while you may find that, you'll also find that the wisdom of elders or the common sense of everyday people will work just as well, if n…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are those who are addicted to the hustle, as though being busy automatically makes someone a better person. Hustle is valuable only if it's for a meaningful purpose. So, what is the purpose? This is the question to put at the heart of every activity this week.

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Because everyone has a unique set of strengths and weaknesses, it's impossible to prescribe one solution for everyone. However, most of this week's challenges will be handled by tending to the basics of all human beings: proper rest, nutrition, exercise and light. …

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). To counteract the human brain's tendency to put an emphasis on negative things (so that we remember to avoid those conditions in the future), it will be important to make the good things more memorable. Play them up. Celebrate them in many different ways. And take …

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Graceful patience is your preferred tone, and you wear it beautifully this week as you manage all you're responsible for, take on new interests and excuse the old knowing that even the most cherished and best-maintained things will wear out with extended use. It's …

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Lately, you've been extremely lucky with acting on your first impulses, and this is one of the hallmarks of being the firstborn sign of the zodiac. The cosmic tide is shifting, however. In the upcoming week, heed your second thoughts instead of your automatic respo…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You tend not to remember those times when you're in the flow; you were so present to the moment that you existed inside a different state of consciousness. But you remember what happened before and what happened next, and that's the part to revisit and recreate to …

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's an opening in your life, and you're quietly searching for the right person for the role. It's natural to accidentally and very hopefully project onto others the qualities you're looking for (qualities they may or may not actually possess), but better not to…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). One reason people don't clean up after themselves (actually or metaphorically) is that they know that someone else will do it. And if that someone is you, you can keep the dynamic going by simply continuing to handle things you really shouldn't have to. Or you can …

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Time and distance are supposed to make things farther away, and yet you somehow defy the natural laws, take improbable mental leaps and close the gaps. In your mind, 10 years ago is as close to you as yesterday, and your feelings are just as intense. Use your time-…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The key to success is focus. What makes focus hard is that it's a rejection of everything that's not your focus. But the deeper you go into your focus, the easier it gets to ignore the things that aren't that. And as long as you have your priorities straight this w…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're getting loads done every day, and yet you're not working on the thing you really want to be working on, and it bothers you. There's nothing terrible keeping you stuck, you just haven't made the decision to prioritize this higher. That's what it's going to ta…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You've been trained formally, informally, traditionally, unconventionally and more, all of it seeming worth the while. Though from time to time, you do find yourself wondering how it could possibly pay off. It will pay off, this week, and in interesting ways at tha…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). While attempting to learn a thing, you may feel it's getting the better of you. This is largely due to impatience, lack of faith, short-sightedness and the like, which will fall away when you push the pause button and catch your breath. Then, resolve yourself to th…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are the values we think we have, and then there are the values by which we actually live. In your case, these two things usually match up well. And when they don't, it creates an uncomfortable cognitive dissonance followed by an inner drive to reflect and the…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll encounter those who are slow to open up, which is something they cannot help. It takes courage for wounded souls to love and connect, as there's no guarantee that the people we love and trust won't accidentally cause us pain. Have patience and adjust your ex…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may be reticent to charge for some of the work you do this week, and why is that? Maybe doing it for free takes the pressure off, or perhaps you still think of yourself as an amateur. Set your price anyway. People value what they pay for, even if they pay very little.

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). This week may have you wondering how you got here. Wonder no more. You are the best person for the job; that's why you were chosen. Of course, the best person isn't always the most qualified. The best person is the one in the position to do a good job. That's you, …

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). People who boast about not being afraid are perhaps in denial or do not have a very broad understanding of all that's involved in living a good life. Fear is a natural and intelligent response to certain parts of life. And doing things you're afraid of is an inextr…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The environment can't be argued with. The reality of circumstances can't be denied. On the bright side, this plane is rife with loopholes. Believe in them, and look for them. Also, living from the outside in is only one way. You'll have more control when you get ce…

hot

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Discovering your superhero alter ego is on the agenda. Every move you make speaks to your character, so you make sure it's saying something you like. Of course, this goes double for when no one is watching. You'll get an unexpectedly disproportionate thrill from do…
