AQUARIUS (Jan 20– Feb 18): Listen to your body. It knows a lot more than you give it credit for. Feeling any aches and pains? Sluggish after eating certain types of foods? Maybe these are signs and signals you should be paying a lot more attention to. Your body, like any other finely tuned and complex piece of engineering, needs regular TLC and lots of conscientious maintenance. So what are you waiting for? Take better care of yourself.
PISCES (Feb 19 – March 20): How long has it been since you’ve put on your boogie shoes? The stars are shaking their heads and saying it’s high time you kicked up your heels at some purely fun, totally frivolous activity of your choice. So maybe you’re more the bowling shoes type than the dancing shoes type — it doesn’t matter. The most important thing is to get out there and to do something that reminds you how good it is to be alive. What are you waiting for?
ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 19):
Someone in your family is trying to tell you something important, so put your mouth on mute and prick up your ears. The message may not be obvious, so it’s even more important that you’re paying attention to all the details. Look them in the eye, notice their body language and stay alert to subtle cues. If they’re having a hard time talking about it, don’t pressure them. Just let them know you’re available to listen anytime.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20): Learn to be yielding, and that way, you’ll exercise your strength. It sounds contradictory, but it’s not. Many ancient cultures consider water the strongest substance on earth because it acts with gentle persistence rather than brute strength, and in that way manages to shape its circumstances without destroying what lies in its path: learn a lesson from that and apply it to your own life.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Isn’t it time your money started working for you instead of the other way around? In other words, it’s time to think in terms of dollars and sense rather than immediate gratification. People say that money’s the root of all evil, but that’s a little too simplistic — addressing how you deal with your finances can straighten out a lot of issues mentally, emotionally and spiritually. After all, you want your finances to help your life — not hurt it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): The great thing about learning to forgive others is that it means you also know how to forgive yourself. Ditto for learning how to feel compassion and demonstrate kindness for all those around you. They’re tough lessons to learn, but some of the most rewarding. It’s also one of those lessons that the universe will find a way to teach you — over and over again — until you really manage to make it a part of your daily life.
LEO (July 23 – Aug 22):
Mind your manners, or someone might just mind them for you. It’s a good idea to be extremely aware of your audience right now — usually your outspoken personality charms and amuses most people, but it might be hard for others to handle at this moment. Heap on the tact, especially with any prickly types you have to deal with. And if you must deliver some less-than-pleasant news, remember to do it the Mary Poppins way: with a spoonful of sugar.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22): The best heroes have their sidekicks — so who’s your trusty aide-de-camp during tricky situations like the current one? Everyone needs an ally and a confidante, and don’t let anyone else tell you differently. You’ve been trying to handle this on your own, but it’s not a weakness to ask for help. Talk to someone about everything that’s been going on lately.
LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 22):
Guess what? Your soul needs nourishment just as much (and sometimes more) as your body does. So get out there and do something enriching — something that puts you back in touch with your vital, essential nature and reminds you of what you care about. That may mean a walk in the woods or some time with your family. Why not both? Whatever it is that feeds your psyche, you need to do it now. Get started.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21): Sluggishness be gone! Right now, you have enough drive to put a Ferrari to shame. Your reflexes — both mental and physical — are so top-notch that it seems almost superhuman to lesser mortals. So enjoy the full extent of your powers and don’t be afraid to flex a little muscle to get things done. Oh, hey, and while you’re at it — give someone else a hand. You have energy and talent to spare.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): If you were a color, you’d be mellow yellow today. Right now, you’re in the flow, being here now and able to handle just about anything in the spectrum of experience. So if someone who’s acting a little more agent orange comes along, you’re more than ready and able to defuse them. Just impart a little bit of your worldview to them (gently and unobtrusively, of course), and you’ll find that they become a lovely, calm coral.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): Sometimes you can get so caught up in demanding what you want that you could miss something just as good that’s right under your nose. In other words — sometimes you shake a tree and ask the universe to send you apples right now, but instead you get oranges a week or two later. And really, aren’t both fruits equally as juicy and delicious? So relax a little. Go ahead and make your requests to the universe. Go out and shake a few trees. And prepare to be delighted by a few surprises.
