PISCES: Feb. 19–March 20
Power lies in dropping out of the sturm und drang of the marketplace. As factions squabble, there is a bigger picture only you can see. Make no promises until the dust settles.
ARIES: March 21–April 19
Aries symbolizes the planting of seeds. Some fall on rocks; others are carried away by birds. It’s time to initiate new alliances without concern for outcome.
TAURUS: April 20–May 20
It’s not cool for the blissful bovine to expose the undercurrent of righteous rage — outward serenity is a potent weapon as you wage war on perceived injustice. Patience and an awareness of the inevitability of karma reinforce your faith.
GEMINI: May 21–June 20
It’s time to assimilate some revolutionary lifestyle concepts. Nutrition and style are ready for a new idea; consider regenerating old-school favorites, from comfort foods to your investment wardrobe
CANCER: June 21–July 22
A system you’ve developed for personal care should be refined and put into daily rotation. Lead by example — it’s more effective than lecturing. Follow a hunch.
LEO: July 23–Aug. 22
Be willing to take on responsibility for a speculative venture. Others will withdraw, and obstacles will arise, but you are destined for the lion’s share.
VIRGO: Aug. 23–Sept. 22
Your willingness to work hard must be supported by a strong structural entity. No pearls before swine; save brilliant concepts for a receptive hierarchy. Your contribution is essential and requires backing from those in power.
LIBRA: Sept. 23–Oct. 22
Do what you do best. Act as mediator or chief of protocol for a hard-hitting innovator. Sometimes the rough edges of genius must be softened; tighten the iron fist in the velvet glove.
SCORPIO: Oct. 23–Nov. 21
Jupiter retrograde in your sign calls a halt to unprecedented growth. More data is needed to determine the worth of current projects. Plan for the “what ifs” and avoid the “woulda, coulda, shouldas” later.
SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 22–Dec. 21
Take a short trip to gain new perspective. Get away to raw natural beauty and reinvent your dream. They will miss you when you go away.
CAPRICORN: Dec. 22–Jan. 19
You work harder because it’s easier for you. Acknowledge leaders, and maintain alliances. As you mentor you will be guided.
AQUARIUS: Jan. 20–Feb. 18
You’re due for a surge on the revenue stream. Realize that time is money, and go no further until the bill is adjusted. You work against yourself if you underestimate your worth.
