TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Beware of making short-sighted behavioral choices based on what promises to feel good in the moment, Taurus—e.g., taking the gloves off and vindictively getting even, going further than you should—but will likely weigh on you later, with a guilty conscience and/or retroactive consequences. You're at a point where it behooves you to consciously curb the amount of karmic strings your actions create. It's far wiser to heed the watchful sway of that guardian-angel floating over your shoulder, whispering in your ear, in no uncertain terms, what's the divinely correct thing for you to do… even if it makes no sense to anyone else, even if they're riled by your shameless self-determination, even if your actions or attitudes necessarily carry you away from them, for a passing time or forever. You are the only one who must live eternally with the psychic ramifications of how you behave with regards to the circumstances unfolding in front of you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is not a time to perpetuate insincere cordiality or pretend friendships, playing to a bland agreeability at the expense of self-liberating authenticity. Why be afraid of 'losing' someone you haven't legitimately had on your side in quite some time, if really at all? Who cares if certain people don't like you? The pressure to withhold your more raucous social impulses, just to avoid rubbing someone wrong, is likely to build up to a distressing level under this astrology… which, in any event, will just tinge your accommodating overtures with an underlying aggressive edge anyhow, creating a different version of social tension, only due to indirect self-censorship rather than by virtue of genuine self-expression. By that logic, you might as well let loose—and let everybody decide for themselves whether you're their cup-of-tea, and they yours.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don't just reach for the stars, Cancer. Jump up at 'em. Climb to the top of the highest building, and leap toward the golden ring. Do not be afraid of falling to the earth and splattering your inards for all to see. If you want it badly enough, you must be willing to follow up each try with another, every effort improving your chances. It's not merely your nervy refusal-to-take-'no'-for-an-answer that'll continue fueling your aspirations. It's that other people will notice how friggin' intent you are on making considerable progress with your career and/or public calling. You must be that winner, and anyone on a similarly ambitious path will want to help you win more, to win more themselves alongside you. How will they know what you're working with, if you don't wave it in their damn face?
LEO (July 23-August 22): Here's an uncommonly ripe chance to define your life with stunning virtue, Leo, by creating a statement with these next choices you make. Nobody should be left to wonder what passionately interests you, where your curiosities lie, and/or which direction you believe your most meaningful future is pointing. The impulse to broaden your life's horizons is enough to go on. While you can't be sure this will carry you straight to your eventual destination, or is even ultimately 'right' for you, you'll never find out who you're capable of becoming without gamely stretching toward that which compelsyou.
VIRGO (August 23-September 22): Fight the temptation to simply give in and/or do whatever's easiest, Virgo, just because such a path-of-least-resistance response seems like it'll put things back into neater place more quickly. Your situation isn't supposed to be especially 'neat' right now. While I understand the not-knowing feels almost as if it will strike you down with its accompanying anxieties, it's hardly shrewd to attempt to remedy it by rushing toward a superficial knowing. I promise you won't drop dead from staying actively engaged in hammering out a mutually workable agreement (provided one is indeed possible in this particular circumstance), though the process could likely entail one or the other of you being shocked, unsettled, and/or displeased at various moments. Don't fixate on the discomfort of those emotional reactions. Rather, remind yourself that they will morph, mutate, and/or mature into something else, as disclosures continue to emerge over time, if given the chance.
LIBRA (September 23-October 22): You can and should say whatever you feel like saying, so long as it's both true and directly relevant to you increasing your level of satisfaction with the dynamics between you. This is no time to hedge your bets on some cagey calculated approach, as if holding your tongue until they flash a vulnerability will reserve you the upper hand. . Even though the sudden dissolution of fantasies, projections, and delusions could temporarily upset the free-flow of unspoken expectations floating between you, it's where you choose to go from there, together, that'll define the relationship in more realistic—and, thus, more ultimately promising—terms.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): . If you smartly accept an interpretation of your most recent phase as a restorative break from the typical routine (rather than, say, indulging the fantasy that you could sustainably live all your days like you lived those and still have something tangible to show for it), then you ought to feel properly revived… and rarin' to make the absolute most of these next weeks, an interval during which you hold the potential of accomplishing shitloads more tasks than any average un-revived human being could possibly muster. (We're talking shitloads of shitloads, folks!) But if instead you choose to rebel against this inevitable tide-turn, like the insolent guest who refuses to leave the party even after the hosts have shut off the music and begun cleaning up, you'll only accrue a backlog of physical energies aching to be channeled into some concrete purpose.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21): There's nothing more gratifying than not having to vigilantly watch the version of you which you're presenting to the world, . To become the best Sagittarian self you can is simply a matter of mastering the knack for being frank and forthright without being an asshole… the difference between positively standing tall in your own truth and negatively attacking someone else for standing in theirs. When it's about you in this identity-constructing fashion, you emit a devil-may-care detachment from other people's impressions, which both reeks of self-confidence and, as a result, is powerfully attractive. You'll seem like you're having a good time, and avid admirers will want in on the action.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): It's okay to loosen your grip on that well-composed impression you typically give off, Capricorn, as long as you're doing so toreinforce an interpersonal boundary critical to your peace-of-mind. Sometimes, people don't get the hint if you express yourself too 'reasonably'. . You get to lay out your desires, straight up, and no negotiations are really necessary. The process of asserting how you want this to go, consequently, may be best handled on a relatively solitary basis. The moment you lapse into too much explanation (or is it justification?), you're already under the persuasive influence of someone else's psychic field—and the boundary has been breached.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18): For the record, Aquarius, there's currently nowhere you should be 'going' other than where you already are. Hopefully, that knowledge will help temporarily quell any wanderlust ambitions or self-imposed pressures to perform at a wider-transmitting frequency. Why look so far from here for inspiration, when you have decent, thoughtful, interesting pals within this 10-mile radius who you've barely seen in months? you also needlessly sacrifice a certain amount of camaraderie, support, and basic entertainment by eschewing your comfortable rapport with those familiar faces you've known for a while. 'Known for a while', incidentally, doesn't mean you know each other well.
PISCES (February 19-March 20): Between you and me, let's consider it totally fine if certain colleagues, clients, or customers don't exactly see you for who you really are, Pisces… provided, that is, they're made to very clearly understand what specifically it is you want from them. What ultimately drives you is, truth be told, none of anyone else's beeswax (unless, of course, you choose to share your feelings with individuals you trust). And if preserving a relative poker-face, allowing them to presume a greater personal affinity exists between you than perhaps you experience (while, of course, stopping short of outright deception), helps you advance your worldly pursuits, that's a valid part of the game.
