Do you know the colors of the rainbow? They taught them in school, and yet the concept is largely unteachable. Just because the human eye can see seven colors doesn't mean there are but seven. According to the current model of physics, there are an infinite number of colors in the rainbow. And according to the Aries new moon this week, there are an infinite number of possibilities for your life. So take the first step. Begin!
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Good mothers are associated with encouraging children to plan for the weather. "Wear a sweater," they say. "Put on sunscreen," they suggest. You should plan for the weather, too. Furthermore, thinking ahead so you can make yourself more comfortable in the future is a basic way to show yourself love.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Forming expectations of people is tricky business. And it will entangle many of the following concepts: Who you want them to be; who they think you want them to be; who they want to be; who they are; what they are capable of; what you need; who you are in their eyes, etc. Exhausting, and yet you'll navigate it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll watch out for your people, work together and support one another toward a collective goal. The minute one person starts calculating his or her importance, the team win is in jeopardy. Individual ego is the enemy of the group. Be the cheerleader or coach that buoys the spirit of the squad.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're committed to forward momentum and willing to do what it takes to overcome the obstacles that keep you stuck. However, you're just not sure right now what it will take. Your current circle will provide little help because you're on a different trajectory than they can relate to. Seek outside tutelage.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The heroes and heroines of fiction have it easy — the adventures come to them. Whereas, most of the time, real people have to go out and find their own adventures, as you will do this week. Be bold, open yourself to uncertainty and, most importantly, talk to people you don't know. The best is yet to come.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The human brain can so masterfully rationalize just about any behavior. You act and your brain rushes to makes sense of it — amazing! Only your brain doesn't care that sometimes it's making up unfounded stories. It's why you need friends around who will point out discrepancies and keep you from self-deception.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You resonate with talented people because you're in the mega-talent club. And since it's more fun to add to your bag of tricks when inspiring people around you also are doing it, join or invite a few people to work on the craft collectively. The skills you'll add this week will make your work exciting and lucrative.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll benefit from thinking about yourself and your roles in life — maybe even for hours on end this week. It's not about being selfish in a world that revolves around you; rather, it's about considering your story and changing it if necessary to cast yourself as the empowered hero instead of someone stuck on replay.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It is impossible to really enjoy a thing to the fullest if you didn't pay for it in some way. Right now, you're still paying. "When's the fun part?" you'll wonder. But you won't be sorry that you're paying dues now; later you'll milk every bit of emotional gold from this, knowing the richness here is well-deserved.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). "Goodbye" can be among the saddest words, but not this week. There's something you'll be relieved (maybe even ecstatic) about waving off. Perhaps it's a personal habit, or some obligation you got roped into. In that case, you'll have to do some acting in the name of social correctness to keep a lid on your joy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It will be a worthwhile challenge to try and lead the attention of others, to create an experience they can safely and collectively bounce along with. Your efforts in this regard will be rewarded with the payoff you were going for, and other unexpected benefits as well.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). So much of life works in artificial timeframes that we forget that it can happen any other way. When you've the luxury of a project, journey or day without a schedule, seize it! Creative magic will happen. But as soon as you impose a schedule, there's a pressure to get through it (as opposed to experience it.)
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: You're a fantastically capable and self-directed learner. Because of this, you'll always be able to go after what you need and want to know. In the first part of this solar return, you may not be sure which subjects to pursue. It's why, more than ever, putting yourself in inspiration's way will be important. Let the muses seduce you. People you can trust play an important role in May and June business. You'll commit to enriching work. Children improve your life in June. October brings big fun!
