ARIES (March 21-April 19) I’ve got a good feeling about your relationship with intimacy in the coming weeks. I think you will have a good instinct about how to drum up interesting fun with your most important allies. You’ll just naturally know what to do to make your collaborative efforts synergistic. So don’t just sit back and hope for the best; rather, call on your imagination to provide you with original ideas about how to make it all happen.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Would you be willing to go to extraordinary lengths to transform aspects of your life that you have felt are hard to transform? Now would be a good time to do that. Luck will flow your way if you work on healing your No. 1 wound. Unexpected help and inspiration will appear if you administer tough love to any part of you that’s addicted, immature or unconscious. Barriers will crumple if you brainstorm about new ways to satisfy your frustrated yearnings.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) I bet your normal paranoia levels will decline in the coming weeks. Fears you take for granted won’t make nearly as much sense as they usually seem to. As a result, you’ll be tempted to wriggle free from your defense mechanisms. Useful ideas that your mind has been closed to may suddenly tantalize your curiosity. I won’t be surprised if you start tuning into catalysts that had previously been invisible to you. But here are my questions: Can you deal with losing the motivational force that fear gives you? Will you be able to get inspired by grace and pleasure rather than anxiety and agitation? I advise you to work hard on raising your trust levels.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) “Sometimes people have nothing to say because they’re too empty,” writes author Yasmin Mogahed, “and sometimes people have nothing to say because they’re too full.” By my reckoning, you will soon be in the latter category. A big silence is settling over you as new amusements and amazements rise up within you. It will be understandable if you feel reluctant to blab about them. They need more time to ripen. You should trust your impulse to remain a secret and a mystery for a while.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) “Insight is not a light bulb that goes off inside our heads,” says author Malcolm Gladwell. “It is a flickering candle that can easily be snuffed out.” Take that as a constructive warning. On the one hand, I believe you will soon glimpse quite a few new understandings of how the world works and what you could do to make it serve you better. On the other hand, you’ve got to be extra alert for these new understandings and committed to capturing them the moment they pop up. Articulate them immediately. If you’re alone, talk to yourself about them. Maybe even write them down. Don’t just assume you will be able to remember them perfectly later when it’s more convenient.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) After a storm, British wildlife lover Gary Zammit found a baby heron cowering in a broken nest. Its parents were dead. Zammit took the orphan under his wing. He named it Dude and cared for it as it grew. Eventually he realized that Dude was never going to learn to fly unless he intervened. Filling his pockets full of the food that Dude loved, Zammit launched a series of flying lessons – waving his arms and squawking as he ran along a flat meadow that served as a runway. Dude imitated his human dad and soon mastered the art of flight. Can you see ways in which this story might have metaphorical resemblances to your own life? I think it does. It’s time for your mind to teach your body an instinctual skill or self-care habit that it has never quite gotten right.
