Sun Bursts: If you know your Ascendant and/or your Moon Sign, read that too.
Aries March 21-April 19
You can polarize with partners, personal and professional, or you can refuse to engage in any activity that will exacerbate tensions. This sounds like a no-brainer because it is. If you fight it out, no one will win, so rather than take a hard stance, soften, and you will eventually find a way to work it out.
Taurus April 20-May 20.
You’re being asked to surrender control, a position that makes you extremely uncomfortable. The only part of this entire drama you have any control over is how you choose to respond to the demands of the moment and to the tension those demands engender. It may not look like it, but you are learning to trust.
Gemini May 21-June 21
The solution to the stresses and strains of the week can be found in being confident in your choices—if you’ve made a mistake, recognize it, own it, learn from it, and move on. One of the only ways to make it through is to rely on yourself, not in an egocentric manner, but through knowing your own value.
Cancer June 22-July 22
Rely on your strong suit, which is nurturing and caring for others to get you through the stresses and strains of the week. Yes, you could retreat in fear about what’s coming next, but anxiety won’t actually help your situation. Take care of yourself as you would take care of those you love and you’ll be fine.
Leo July 23-August 22
Your only goal is maintain your inner calm, so do whatever it is you do to stay centered within yourself—meditate, do more yoga, take long walks or tons of exercise classes. Your job is to stay steady within so you don’t succumb to negative thinking. A positive mindset will help you and those you love.
Virgo August 23-September 22
One of the best ways to handle the tension of the week is to volunteer to help others. Think about where your gifts might be most useful (as well as appreciated) and try to spend the intensity of this time helping others. I realize that might not be easy, but it will be a worthwhile effort.
Libra September 23-October 22
Because you’re a Cardinal Sign you’re feeling the tension keenly, and it isn’t easy managing your need to relax with the needs of those you love and care for. So take a break and devote yourself to work—and if you don’t already have a project to work on, find one. Spend your energy on a beneficial distraction.
Scorpio October 23-November 21
While it probably isn’t possible for you to take a physical vacation, you can travel quite safely and conveniently in your mind. Pick a place you would like to visit—or get lost in—and have at it. Rent videos, read travel books, listen to the music of that culture, watch its films, and let your imagination be your guide.
Sagittarius November 22-December 21
The key to successfully navigating this week is contemplating what needs to transform and then making a plan that will facilitate those changes. This isn’t about brooding over what’s wrong; it’s about using your innate enthusiasm to inspire ideas for improving your situation, especially when it comes to finances.
Capricorn December 22-January 19
I realize this might be a radical suggestion, but the best way to alleviate the stress of this moment (or any moment), is to seek the company of like-minded friends and family. I know you are used to going it alone, but sometimes going it with others is the perfect antidote to an overwhelming amount of tension.
Aquarius January 20-February 18
This is the perfect week to put your innate idealism to work. Research where your efforts might be most useful and appreciated as well as what would bring you joy, and then make a participation plan. If you already know where you want to be of service, refine your plan so it will be easier to implement.
Pisces February 19-March 20
Creativity is the best antidote to any tension you may be experiencing, so devote yourself to creative endeavors—write, paint, pot, garden, make music, cook, sew, sculpt—do whatever it is you do to express yourself. If you do, you’ll find it much easier to cope with the stress and any other negative energy.
