ARIES (March 21-April 19). Those who haven't found peace inside themselves will relentlessly pursue external validation, often in the form of monetary gain. As the ancient poet Horace said, "All for a seat down front at some bad play?" Contrastingly, your serenity of purpose will have you wo…

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Anyone who says you shouldn't feel the way you do is ignorant about how feelings work. If you bottle feelings up, or are ashamed of them, they gain the wrong kind of power. Whichever emotion you happen to be experiencing is perfect. Accept it. Then choose your next…

ARIES (March 21-April 19). While presentation is important, most people are more concerned with their own performance than they are with yours. If you can help the other person feel good about his or her own performance, you'll win, too. This and other assets (including your warmth and compe…

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When a plant doesn't grow, it's neither the plant's fault nor the environment's fault. Rather, it's a bad match between the two. Of course, the environment, not the plant, is what can be changed -- a metaphor to take to heart now. Nothing about you needs to change.…

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's usually a nicer way to say things. For most people, it's not typically the first way that comes to mind. But with practice in the art of diplomacy and negotiation, it gets easier to find the words. Try, "What if we did it this way instead?" and "We can talk…

ARIES (March 21-April 19). This week it will be so easy for you to execute the task more or less the same way as last time, or the same way as everyone else does it, that you really need more of a challenge to keep it interesting. Impose this challenge on yourself. There will be rich rewards…

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're on your way to wholeness. Give a hard, clear look to the thing that hurts you. This is the first step to healing: an assessment of the issue that neither dramatizes nor fantasizes. Once you clearly see what is, ideas will start coming to mind about what to d…

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There will be a lot of hullabaloo about how a product you're involved with measures up. Some say "great"; others get loose with the "genius" word; still others poke holes in high praise, adhering to a different set of standards. And does it really matter, all this …

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Talent is overrated. Attitude and work ethic will win every time. You don't have to have a talent for something to do well with it, and you're not guaranteed to do well at something just because you have a talent for it. You'll benefit from thinking of talent as me…

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Children go with the pied piper of the playground -- the one who gives them something to follow and makes them dance and laugh. Adults are skeptical of this character. In the adult world, fun takes a back seat to dependability. Then there's you -- both fun and resp…
