ARIES (March 21-April 19).
You are fighting a nagging feeling that you should be doing something more important with your time. That feeling is not a lie. If you accept it instead of fight it, you’ll get onto something more worthwhile.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
Much will be said and not meant. More will be meant and not said. If you’re not feeling your way through the relationship, you’ll get lost pretty quickly. Close your eyes. Cover your ears. Listen with your heart.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Whether or not you’re really in control of your situation could be debated from here to eternity, but that would rob you of the chance to experience (maybe even enjoy) what’s going on regardless of your level of control over it.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Distraction is the death of meaning. Don’t fill the hours with amusement, because it will only rob you of the chance to find your real purpose in the situation. Dig deeper.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
Most days you follow the rules, but sometimes you feel bigger than society — like you can do your thing without getting boxed in by other people’s expectations. For the rest of this week you may swing from one extreme to another.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
The passive approach would work if you were on a raft floating down a river with its own agenda. But you’re not. You’re standing on the path that splits into many possible directions, and you have to decide which way to walk.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).
People tend to admire the different talents of those who excel in fields foreign to them and tend to have grudges against those who excel in their own fields, regarding them as competitors. Don’t waste time on jealousy. Learn the tricks.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Why is your stomach so wise? It is unencumbered by thought. It just knows. Your stomach processes life in terms of “use” and “waste.” Turn your difficult questions to your stomach, and accept its simple yes-or-no answer.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
The believer is usually happier than the doubter, proving that wisdom and happiness often have very little to do with one another. But there’s a peace that comes with wisdom, and that should count for something today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
Beware of the life equivalent of soda pop and candy. You need real sustenance. Seek nutritive experiences. Avoid things that are filled to the brim and yet still unfulfilling.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Who might you be now if you’d taken that turn you missed back there? Well, the option is coming up again. Take it, and you’ll know a different version of yourself soon enough.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
As for this real life story you’re living, there’s a lot of exposition to get through today. One boring chapter doesn’t discount the value of the whole adventure.
