The reversal of Jupiter and other planetary liberations will fly a permission slip into the week. Do your feelings. Emote. If happy, then feel the joy and dance on. Talking about why and trying to sort out the recipe diminishes the good feeling. The same goes for negative feelings. When you're sad, angry, ashamed, just call it that, feel it and work it through. Don't muddle things up by intellectualizing with a story or an explanation.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You could say "past mistakes," or you could instead say "past behaviors" and leave out the air of judgment. After all, you were doing your best and learning what works, just like you're doing now. When you judge yourself, you're buying into someone else's opinion — probably an old one you heard long ago.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's easier to make decisions from calm spaces that provide a neutral backdrop and the best "lighting" (whether physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual or other) for your particular choices. Such environments can be rare. You'll experience and take advantage of the opportunity within them this week.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Feelings come in clusters. Joy can spark playfulness, and then curiosity, and then wonder. Sadness can spark anger, hurt, shame. Some small feelings spiral into bigger ones. Your emotional intelligence will allow you to dance with all that's happening, sidestepping known triggers, inviting your favorite partners, too.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Those who know you well might observe a wild glint in your eye because you're cooking something up. The funny part is that you are sometimes not even aware of your complete idea until you're already acting on it. When it works out, it will be because your intent is pure and in line with the highest good for all.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instead of worrying whether the end justifies the means, just forget about the end. Focus fully on how you're doing things, the spirit in which you approach it, the goodness in your intent. Truly, the outcome won't make a bit of difference. What matters is making the most loving choice you know how to make in the moment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's not that people are willfully working at cross-purposes to your own. They just happen to be traveling the same road, coming from the opposite direction and headed to where you've already been. Nothing is inevitable about this. You don't have to crash, scrape or stall in impasse. Stay alert. Grace is possible.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your confidence is below what it could be, considering all you've accomplished to get where you are. Often, posturing is irrelevant to your dealings, but this week, swagger matters. A little ego goes a long way. Showing you know your value will bring to you the reward you deserve.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Probably, you cannot change how you feel, but you can change what comes next — namely, your behavior. Automatic reactions can be curbed, retrained, approached differently. Different courses of action are considered and new habits formed. That's what you'll work on, and be tremendously successful in, this week.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The first time you talk to a potential (fill in the blank, friend/boss/client/partner) it's going to be both thrilling and nerve-wracking. Because you're willing to bear that type of adrenaline surge, all kinds of opportunities will open up for you, most notably, the chance to dive into a powerful attraction.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The obvious points of contention will be a gift. Once you understand where the disagreement lies, you can get creative. You're not fighting against each other so much as the rigid perspectives that keep you gridlocked. What happens when you assume you are on the same side?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You want to set things right, but how should you approach it? Resolve inner conflict, and you'll create peace with others. Or, seek peace with others, and something will click internally for you to create a sense of calm acceptance. Any way you go, you'll get there, so the only way to go wrong is not to go at all.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The fictional story ends with a happily-ever-after. The real story is a series of happily-momentarily scenarios, between interludes of normal life, contentedness, neutrality and, here's hoping, not too many plunges into darker tones. Keeping reasonable expectations of relationships will help matters enormously this week.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: This age will bring you bright insights and subsequent plot changes as you follow new creative visions into a different style of being. In many ways, you are lighter, taking many things less seriously, though doubling down on the importance of things like family, physical health and doing what's necessary to make your life easier and more productive. Family additions, possibly in pet form, and the expansion of personal assets will be features of 2021.
