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 expectations. It will all prove worthwhile.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). We are sensation-seeking creatures. Oddly, the negative sensations can be just as addicting as the positive sensations. Be aware of this dynamic so you can immediately move from things that don't feel good to you instead of sticking around long enough to make them seem OK.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). In every area of life, significant discoveries are often made by outsiders -- people whose ignorance blinds them to the limitations and rules that insiders have learned to respect. You'll make such a discovery this week, and your insights will have impact and meaning, once they are fully understood.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Can't bring yourself to forgive? You're not alone. Many don't believe forgiveness is the way. And yet, for life to work better, something needs to change. What about learning more about the issue? By coming to a deeper understanding, knowing and predicting better, you open your life to happiness.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Good news, the outside world will comply once you resolve the trouble between you and you. Get on your own side. Greater communication between body, mind, spirit and the various agendas of the ego will bring you in compliance with your own rules. Once you align within yourself, you'll become as powerful as any group.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). For the time being, it's a powerful move to simply accept things as they are. Something strange happens as you release yourself and others from your expectations. A gentle wind comes to blow away the fog from your thinking. New clarity will show you the path, all lit up and singing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Clashes of interest will disallow you to be fully devoted to yourself and your group simultaneously. Surely, being constantly on-call and in-service to your loved ones isn't your entire identity. Here's the lie that needs unraveling: Your usefulness to others shouldn't make you any more or less worthy of love.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You've worked throughout your life to become tougher and less sensitive to small stresses. Now it's actually better to go in the opposite direction. Noticing what you dislike, what makes you uncomfortable and what causes you to dip into your well of self-control will be key knowledge to factor into your success plan.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You're a quick study and that will come in handy this week as life throws you onto a learning curve or two. You're not the first person to have to put this together and it's all laid out for you in the instructions. So follow directions instead of going strictly on instinct and you'll save yourself a lot of time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Check in on your feelings in the spirit of openness and tolerance. To demand that your emotional world makes total sense is just silly. The very nature of feelings is irrational. But even the most illogical notions can be truth-based. Extremely workable and rational plans will spring from the irrational.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Studies suggest as many as 75 percent of fast-food customers are omitting the "please" and "thank you" these days, though such niceties grease the wheels that circulate civilized society. You can't imagine what magnificent outcome your unfailing proliferation of good manners will contribute to.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some form of the plan you're currently conjuring up will eventually bring a flood of prosperity and success. The thing to ask now: "Is this something I'd really do?" Because even the best plan is only going to work if you work it. Setting yourself up with small tasks you can easily win at will give you the best start.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: Your creativity takes many forms this year. A team effort will kick off this era with gusto, and in 10 weeks you'll fly on a solo mission, expressing what you couldn't quite collaboratively. More highlights of the solar return include: a connection with animals that leads you to connect with interesting people as well, mind expansion through a different sort of media, and an organized and deliberate lifestyle change with such positive results you might consider teaching it to others.
