Venus enters Aquarius, opening minds and hearts this last week of the Sagittarius sun. Don't be surprised if you find guidance shining on you from a new and different direction, as not everyone's north star is due north. No matter what you believe about the divine world, developing your relationship with higher entities and/or ideas will help you over obstacles. Faith itself is a powerful force, regardless of the particulars of creed.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Working out the next move will involve a Venn diagram-type process of figuring out the overlaps between what you want, what they want, and what is doable in terms of resources. It's a lot, but the process gets fun once you figure out the goal that makes sense. This is the start of something incredible.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Life is messy. If you accidentally reveal your mess, others will either relate to it and be repelled because it hits too close to home or relate to it and be attracted for the same reason. Knowing this, you might opt for messy honesty on purpose as a method of weeding out the weak and keeping your support circle strong.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some situations depend on one party acting as the confident authority so the other can relax. Performances and visits to the doctor come to mind. As for the rest of life, a state of not knowing is better for everyone involved. To know is incurious. Not knowing gets results that knowing can't possibly.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Each day has two witching hours; the hour the day sky turns to night, and two hours before bed. These are the times you'll be most susceptible to temptation, and so they are the ideal times for creature comforts. Seek healthy ways to soothe and relax. Build an arsenal of delights and solutions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're so hardworking that sometimes you think of hobbies as a luxury. It could also be argued that hobbies are absolutely essential to your well-being and that they help you do your job better, allowing you to contribute a well-rounded point of view and dig in with the vitality of a contented soul.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are interested, so you ask and entertain the questions of others without judging whether or not they are good questions. A simple, childish query can root out the most difficult and complicated part of a problem. You will gladly release your need to be smart in hopes of actually gaining knowledge.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People don't take risks unless what they have to gain is so much better than what they stand to lose that it's a no-brainer. At that point, logic heeds way to impulse. Your job will be to make the deal so sweet that the logical mind is either satisfied by the prospects or overwhelmed by a desire to seize a juicy offering.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Empathy isn't just something you do because it's kind. It's also a skill for the cunning. If you can't feel where another person is coming from, then it is not so easy to know where are your leverage points. How can you strategize without understanding what the other person wants? Empathy will be your superpower.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll be aiming your team toward shared outcomes. You'll need examples at the ready that people can follow. Spend time on this, as it will make your work much easier if you create something so interesting and attractive to others that they will work toward it out of desire and inspiration instead of obligation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This week will keep bringing you reminders of how feelings change and moments pass, and their impermanence is the same whether the feeling is good or bad. Most impulses are over inside of two minutes today, so it's important to act when it's good and press pause to wait it out when it's bad.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You won't notice the harsh feelings you harbor until they are triggered. Someone does that thing they always do, and you react. It's a gift — an opportunity to reflect. You'll move naturally toward a realization about what's going on here and then work out how to do it a little differently so you can move forward in grace.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll do what helps. You'll do what doesn't. Then you'll do the thing that proves the maturity of your mind and the depth of your heart; you'll keep the helping behavior and lose the other without judgment or condemnation, noting only that it's "not for me right now." This happens gracefully and without drama.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: The wise masters suggest that everything you do, you do to yourself. The care you give outwardly and inwardly will nurture serenity. You will witness more beauty in the months to come than you have yet seen because it's what you seek and what your senses are tuned to receive. You will need to learn things using many modes. So while you'll turn to books and instruction to pick up new lucrative skills, they will become useful only with experience. Don't hesitate to apply yourself.
