Of all the things to struggle against, among the most futile to resist is one's own desire. Desire can feel like an infliction rather than what it is — a message from your heart. Some desires are not appropriate to act on; many shouldn't be taken literally. Take them as hints about the soul's cravings, which might be satisfied in a multitude of different ways. The full moon in broadminded Sagittarius suggests a creative approach to desire.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Ambition's seed activates inside of you. Next comes the trepidation. Will taking on a new role upset those who've grown used to and become dependent on the person you are now? Yes. But they'll adjust. So don't think of this as something to work through. It's something to let go of. Just drop it. Dive into your new life.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're paying attention. This will make life easier for you, though it may make it harder for the ones you notice. Some don't want you to pay such close attention. They are counting on people to be easily mollified, sleepwalking through life. Your hyperawareness is a threat, but it's also the gift that will make them better.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People see you as a determined individual, rushing ever forward in life. But you know that it's not so easy for you. Resistance is a strong force in your life. You tell yourself what to do and then you inwardly rebel. Every time you lift yourself up and over the hump of your own resistance, give yourself credit.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). By now, you're tired of working on a thing. You just want it done. It's a precarious position you're in. You've come far and it would be a shame not to finish strong. Take a beat to catch your breath and get some perspective. Don't leave the game. Stay in there and finish. Do what it takes. This is important.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Each day is different. Though the difference between yesterday and today often is imperceptible. Not this week. You'll clearly feel the relationship take a turn, experience the market shift or notice the change in the social climate. You'll react accordingly because you're changing, too. You can trust your excellent instincts.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). One theme is your negotiation of how close you want to be to the people around you. You're attractive, so you'll have to make decisions about this. You'll offer a level of hospitality that makes people feel accepted and comfortable, but not too comfortable. You'll intrigue while keeping them in the public realms of your circle.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Everyone needs to know that they are not alone, that they are connected to and that they matter to someone... probably lots of "someones." You already know this at a deep level. It's a tenet so stable inside you that you're the perfect person to help others get the sense of belonging they crave.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). One size may fit all, but it won't fit all in the same way. Some will love the fit; others will be uncomfortable with it or just feel that it's not right for them. As you bring your unique offerings to the world time and again, you will earn both raving fans and critics. Serve a small group very well and that group will grow.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This week features interactions that are cut and dried and interactions that are nuanced, contradictory and complex. Neither is better than the other. You need them both. One keeps you grounded, and the other keeps you interested. One sustains you, and the other inspires you to adapt and grow.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). However great an experience was, this week you're in no mood for repeats. You crave the new. Risk makes you feel more alive. And so, discovery will be your biggest thrill this week, even if what you discover isn't as a good as what you already knew.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The more mature people are, the better they understand and tolerate the fact that others do not think, feel or believe as they do. Whatever your task, it's going to help you (save you even!) to ask, very early in the process, "Who's it for?" That is the magic question that will make all of the difference.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Even though a sense of belonging is important to you, you'll nonetheless sometimes find comfort in thinking differently than the group. It feels good to know that you're free of mob mentalities and that your ideas are your own. Your uniqueness will express itself in interesting ways this week.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: Certainty is a quality you've needed at different points in your life, but there's something that serves you even better this year, and that's having the confidence to question yourself. By asking better questions, and challenging your assumptions, you learn in leaps and blast through the obstacles that once held you back. Your stellar work ethic will attract many, and you'll have your choice about where you'd like to apply it. Your financial stars are best in July and December.
