Horoscope Graphic

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 responses. You get more brilliant as you think deeper.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You investigate relationships -- your own, those of people you know, people in the media or in history -- not because you're nosey, but because you're trying to understand something about how people connect. You wonder if there's a way or a style that would suit you better. Your curiosity will lead to insights this week.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your creative process will involve either combining things that normally wouldn't go together or breaking apart things that would. Note that this isn't about making art per se. No matter what you're design for -- business, personal relationships, domestic flow -- your creativity is aimed toward what's useful and functional.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's not just about what you're saying, it's about what you're communicating, which is often something very different than the mere denotation of your words. You love best those who understand this, and are picking up what you're throwing down. Surround yourself with these types of people. Go find a whole posse of them.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Beware of rotten deals posing as good ones. For instance, productivity tools that take longer to figure out and use than it takes to do the actual tasks they're supposed to be managing. Or "sales" that inspire you to buy far more than you need. Keep it simple. Be skeptical of hacks. Smart practices endure.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may attract attention with a purpose that appeals to your target, though it is not your actual purpose. Your actual purpose remains hidden, even to you. It's certainly worth investigating this week. Whether you choose to stay on the same path or not, you'll enjoy yourself more when you understand yourself better.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Manipulative people don't always lie. Look out for those skillful ones who can deceive through candor. In other words, just because someone is truthful doesn't mean they are on your side. Defend yourself against counter-agendas or get some distance between you and the offense.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Whoever gave you the idea that you're supposed to live your life as prescribed by "experts" was doing you a grave disservice. Overcoming that wrong advice is a key accomplishment along your journey, though. So the advice was actually a useful, if unpleasant, gift. Anyway, you're allowed to, and should, experiment.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). While it is normal for people to want to show up differently than they really are, the performance comes at a cost. The trouble with projecting illusions is that the true self remains unseen. The true self needs to be acknowledged to thrive. You'll compassionately apply this wisdom to yourself and others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This week's cosmic help comes in the form of a barrier lifted. Whatever was stopping the communication between the social you and your true self, it will no longer be an issue. Now that confusion is cleared up and the lines are open, you'll act in accordance with what's best for you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Early in the week, it will be relatively easily to quiet your mind and focus on your goals. But as the week goes on, everyone and everything needing your attention will get it -- unless you manage to sneak away to your own bubble of peace and protect your time there like a bear protecting cubs.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Ask for what you want. You may not get it, but you'll learn more about what it will take to have it. Everything in life is an exchange. It's not about being "worthy," it's about having the correct exchange to make it worthwhile to all involved parties. Understand this truth and you won't take anything too personally.

THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: The hummingbird's song is too high-pitched for other bird species to hear, but its own will flock when called, seemingly from out of nowhere. This will be your experience several times during this solar year. You'll send out a message that only certain like minds will understand, and they'll join your mission whether it be for fun, business or the betterment of the world. Family opens opportunity for you in June. Your savvy financial maneuvers make August extra special.
