Variety, being the spice of life, needs an entree. Who wants to bite into a big lonely pile of spices? The angle of Venus and Saturn suggests that a predictable main course (such as solid relationships, work you can count on, a routine that makes sense) will be a good thing to have on your plate before you work variety into the dish.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Different spiritual elevations fit different times of life. It's not a hierarchy. Don't strive, push, or believe you should be anywhere but where you are. Anyway, the spiritually tall are usually standing on someone else's shoulders.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you fit in too well, you'll be invisible. This is perfect if you're sneaking along in dangerous territory or infiltrating somewhere you don't belong, but it serves absolutely no purpose in your own land.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may give loved ones a pass, but when it comes to your own motivations, you'll be brutally honest, rooting out fear, resistance and anything standing in the way of your desired result.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The notion that personal space is sacred is a learned concept. Children and many others don't readily understand the boundaries of others or read social cues. You'll need more space today. Claim it, and then protect your claim.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The easy thing is to reveal everything, say whatever pops to mind, answer every question asked of you. The better choice is to present judiciously and cultivate a sense of mystery.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can see success in your mind's eye and position yourself to head right into it. Once you've established this, any other direction you go is a function of fear. Don't let fear win. Steer straight.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you get enough bad ideas, a handful of good ones will sneak into the game. This can't be helped. Instead of trying for good or bad ideas, go for as many ideas of any kind as you can possibly come up with and sort them out later.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Purposefulness makes you happy, but happiness doesn't make you purposeful. That's why happiness is a famously terrible aim. Also know that you don't have to stick to the first purpose you land on.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you don't take the opportunities that come, you'll regret it. If you do take them, and they wind up being foolish and setting you back in some way, that's still better than having no story to tell.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The impulse to share is very telling. The first thing you'll learn is what moves you. The second thing you'll learn is who you really care about, because your heart's impulses gravitate toward those people.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're in no mood to commit. The lingering atmosphere of impermanence around a new thing will lower your resistance to trying it out. Hop on a trend, and see where it goes.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sit back and absorb the story unfolding before you. Additionally, know that while it seems like it would be cool to get the insider scoop, without a solid understanding of the big picture, the details won't matter.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 31). The next 12 months feature beautiful destinations and people. You'll have a new way of looking at your work. When relationships suit your deeper purpose, you don't worry so much about the trivialities. What you thought would be a perkless job will wind up having the best, most rewarding bonuses. Aries and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 12, 22 and 5.
WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You like to know what's expected of you so you can do more or do different. Knowing what's expected gives you options. TAURUS: Part of you wants to become indispensable to someone, the other part of you is afraid of doing just that. GEMINI: In love, no one knows what they're doing. Start with what you feel and go from there. CANCER: Perfection is boring if it even exists at all. Don't let the quest for perfection keep you from connecting with someone. LEO: Procrastination sends a message. Timing can reveal how much you care. VIRGO: Love is making a difference in another person's life and experience. LIBRA: There are times when the thing you most need to do or say in a relationship is no fun at all. SCORPIO: To embrace a new connection you must let go of remnants of an old relationship. SAGITTARIUS: Relationships will be work. You'll get your hands dirty. CAPRICORN: Bad feelings can tell you that you're onto something good. AQUARIUS: It turns out that what you thought was "once in a lifetime" is actually quite common for those who know how to stumble into it. PISCES: Pretending you know what you're doing is almost the same as knowing what you're doing.
COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Taurus and Gemini would make a good comedy duo this weekend, as they seemingly work at cross-purposes and with contrasting styles, each highlighting the other's best work. Gemini challenges the bull's love of security with flighty, fun, impermanent ideas. Taurus chases Gemini's free spirit giving Gemini the thrill of being pursued. The connection is will be generally lighthearted, and some would even say adorable.
