ARIES (March 21-April 19): Please don't make the mistake of overlooking the present value of your belonging (or, just as crucially, your not belonging) to a particular community or philosophic tradition instead presumptuously promoting yourself as a singularly independent entity, with no particular credit due to any other party. This would be an unfortunate miscalculation on your part, Aries, since your current momentum can be either powerfully made or disruptively broken by the relevant allies or adversaries working for or against you. You might be the firestarter, the mouthpiece, the iconoclast and/or the impresario but you are not the only major player. I'd advise doing a few backward bends this week to explicitly acknowledge, commend, solicit, and/or bounce ideas off of your key like-minded teammates, to solidify the camaraderie and express your gratitude for the support. (It might also be useful to publicly disavow any connection to folks you're sure are not fair representatives of your principles but only if you're sure you're sure.) Even if you spent all week on these social-bond-strengthening activities, you'd still be 'getting important stuff done'.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Taking a prominent and/or persuasive public step this week, Taurus, could pretty quickly inject your bank with an uptick in income and/or reputational esteem but this promising equation will only add up to its rightful sum with a fair sprinkling of magic fairy dust (or, put in more tangibly Taurean terms, the inclusion of a sizable nugget of fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants faith). In other words, your present professional fate hinges on your willingness to initiate a new or newly-expanded involvement that holds a lot of still-unanswered (or -unanswerable) questions, knowing full well that it does entail a certain degree of irresolvable risk. While you may be able to partly cover your ass by ensuring you don't gamble everything and/or leaving yourself a back-up-plan exit strategy, there's no getting around the necessarily speculative nature that comes along with this fortuitous potential. You could play it safe but, with good-luck Jupiter in your money house, is this really the time for that? Closing bit of caution: Please don't go for the gamble unless and until you've cleared it with any other relevant parties you'd be taking along for the ride. (They get their say, too.)

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you're not grooving on any of the pre-designated choices being offered, Gemini, by all means create a better option. Your current astrology too swimmingly favors your embrace of bold door-opening approaches for you to lazily settle for the same predictable slate of possibilities. If you are unable to tap into the wider-lens view necessary for seeing what else is possible, your top priority should be stepping back from the day-to-day grind (which your close-up immersion in is obviously blocking your creative process) and taking part in whatever sorts of vision-questy, self-explorationy, life-question-askingy activities might crack open your fruitlessly closed-mind perspective on this matter. This could include working through workbook-type exercises, speaking to a spiritual counselor (or your preferred version), taking a quick day-trip retreat, journaling, meditating, or any similar such involvement specially intended to broaden your thinking. What you don't need to do: indulge that voice who wants to play back what's already happened, trying to convince you that's all there will ever be.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your duty to tell the full unadulterated (and possibly somewhat uncomfortable) truth should far outweigh any nervousness you may feel about the outcome (whether immediate or longer-range), Cancer. This is a rather poor moment for attempting to control the direction any exchange or interpersonal arrangement is headed, by withholding certain details from the other person and/or 'sparing' their feelings. Such controlling acts actually impede Jupiter-in-your-12th from carrying out his present job of readying you for an excellent second-half of '13, a task which requires your voluntary acknowledgment that you may not know what's 'best' for you in order to be conducted to its fullest favorability. Clutching to what you perceive as benefiting you the mosta particular role or assignment, an existing relationship or an exciting new flingcould actually block you from something even better. But, just to be clear, I am not saying what's currently on the table is bad or wrong only that, at the moment, we don't know. So for right now, please don't fixate on long-term outcomes (though, yes, that's easier said than done). Just speak your unfiltered and unadorned truth, believing in your heart that any reorientations which occur as a result of this truth will ultimately prove advantageous.And while we're at it, don't you need a copy of ASTROBARRY'S 2013, my e-book with a full year-ahead forecast for all 12 signs? Without it, you're lost (at least in my humble opinion).
LEO (July 23-August 22): Don't quietly moon, Leo. You'll get yourself into deeper emotional trouble by hiding away especially when the perspective-bestowing words of close friends or supportive community-members are yours for the taking, simply by reaching out for heartfelt exchanges with them. You might even consider broadening the audience beyond just a single other person, inviting a few pals to share a meal together and/or participating in group discussions about what's on your mind, so you aren't limiting the feedback you'll get to merely one opinion. (Plus, if you're in a one-on-one situation and you don't like what the other person's saying to you, it'll be too easy to dismiss it outrightbut if there's more than one voice providing you the same outlook, you're likelier to take it in, even if it's challenging to hear.) If allowing multiple people to remark on the details of your private life feels too exposing, you can frame it more as an impersonal philosophic exercise taking in their ideas as they relate to a generic or hypothetical situation, without putting yourself on the hot-seat.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22): Continuing to work at a responsibly sped-up pacewhich has presumably been part of your '13 so far, Virgo, with Mars (and others) now in your solar 6thmight also require your busting out of a questionable agreement (short-sighted? outdated? never a good idea?) that's forced you to do things a certain way, in respect to a figure and/or a tradition no longer as fundamental to the matter-at-hand. Your current relation to outward (i.e., career) opportunities remains auspicious, but not if you feel your ability to grab innovative advances is hindered by having your hands tied to a hitching-post of blind protocol. I encourage you to further the work, by whatever means you've logically deduced is best for the work itself (as opposed to what merely suits someone's fancy, whether theirs or yours) and rather than getting caught in discussions (or arguments) about whose 'way' should come out on top, simply inform those affected about how it's now being done. While admittedly you'll be flirting with a personality clash, you're in the prime spot if you let 'what's best for the work itself' lead.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22): You Librans are scheduled to be just a smidge sassier and more outspoken this week not for a grandiose purpose of painstaking self-development or anything like that, but just because you appreciate the life-affirming value of some witty repartee. What a delightful way to spend your hoursgazing, with a naughty coyness, into your companion's eyes, rattling off pleasantly wry retorts or elegant double-entendres, riding the synergy of a mind-meld with another quick-whip smarty-pants, titillated by the cumulative intelligence. Well, perhaps there is another 'purpose' (aside from the mental titillation): giving your extemporaneous brainstorming brilliance a good workout. Enjoying the company of other thoughtful, eloquent individuals will naturally provoke further thoughts on your part and while we're on that note, if you happen upon a topic of interest during your lively exchanges, I encourage you to take notice of what's stirred your curiosity so you may explore it further on your own time.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21): Reactive behavior, which snowballs in severity as each party bats the birdie back across the net at the other, isn't going to get you anywhere, Scorpio. The reason? It locates the source of your unsettledness as somehow residing outside of you (in this other person's 'suspicious' or 'crazy' conduct, perhaps?) rather than in your own heart, where the agitated emotions are really rattling around. Sounding off or sparring against anybody else, though it may provide a convenient channel for your emotional expression, won't actually progress the feelings to a more resolved state. Trust me, if you're mainly concerned with how someone has fallen short of expectations and/or wronged you, you are barking up the wrong tree: This is merely a superficial irritation covering over what's really upsetting you, which is unfortunately not something that's as easy to blame on another person (except maybe your parents, though the reasonable statute-of-limitations has probably passed on that one). Try digesting your reactions on your own, or with the conversational assistance of trusted confidantes and not with the supposedly-guilty You-Know-Who. You'll be far likelier to get somewhere with it. And while we're at it, don't you need a copy of ASTROBARRY'S 2013, my e-book with a full year-ahead forecast for all 12 signs?

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21): Be socially and/or communicatively adventurous this week, Sagittarius, in order to score yourself the companionship and/or favor of a clever individual who's got a few excitingly alternative ideas up his/her proverbial sleeve. Wouldn't it be nice to banter with someone who doesn't offer up pat sound-bite retorts or neatly align to the conventional belief-system breakdowns? Wouldn't it be fun to be kept on your toes to be pleasantly surprised by another person's thought-provoking questions, rather than you always having to serve that role in everybody else's lives? At least one such smarty-pants is presently awaiting contact from you (though probably doesn't know it). Even if you quietly fear they were only telling you to 'call me sometime' as a polite nicety, please go ahead and call. If you overhear a conversation that sounds interesting, consider interrupting with a friendly aside. If you read an online posting that stirs your cerebral juices, make an engaging comment or get in touch with the author. At the moment, serendipity favors such daring social interjections.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19): It's an excellent week for informing any pertinent parties exactly how you plan to build upon whatever's at your disposal to create more of what you want. This is a fairly straightforward proposition, Capricorn, but one which you probably interfere with more often than you realize by trying to master the whole realization of any plan before you discuss it with anybody. What I'm suggesting, therefore, is something of a reversal of the typical Capricorn state-of-affairs and, as such, could make you feel nervous. Remember, though, the likely reason for these nerves is an emotion-based belief that, as soon as you speak an intention aloud, you've essentially entered into an unbreakable verbal contractwhich is an incredibly strict standard to hold yourself to, considering we humble humans reconceive our options and/or change track all the time. Cut yourself some slack, dude. I encourage you to open your process up more, to consider or compare-and-contrast or mull-over in a more outward manner ultimately both demonstrating greater confidence in your ability to choose to change your mind at any time and shrewdly inviting feedback which might address a blind-spot in your practical thinking.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18): Show up, rather than hanging back. Speak with first-person candor, instead of trying to feign objectivity. You should even feel free to embrace a witty irreverence, if it'll make each contact and conversation that much more enjoyable for you. There's now quite a bit of planetary action in your sign, Aquarius, positioning you at the front of the astrological receiving-line and I see no reason why you wouldn't take advantage of this special spot with a bit of harmless showboating. Well, let me amend that: The one reason to potentially restrain yourself a tad would be to protect your reputation as someone who takes your career (and/or public-world) calling seriously. So perhaps an important business meeting, interview or client-call might not be your best setting to crack a dirty joke, remark openly on a politically charged topic, or expound too copiously on a personal interest that professional colleagues might find off-putting. Outside that specific context, however, you're in something of an 'anything goes' moment one in which it pays to be proud of your distinct brand of oddness.

PISCES (February 19-March 20): Imagination, favored over analytic activities. Relative retreat, better for now than central participation. A bit loose and unfettered, please, Pisces, instead of trying to 'have it all together' when you'd probably prefer to float. As long as all these purposely insubstantial fragments of advice do not lead to totally indiscriminate cases of saying 'yes' to unhealthy influences (because, perhaps, your misguided notion of 'a bit loose and unfettered' means a complete dissolution of all boundaries between 'right' and 'wrong'?), you can permit yourself this passing window of happily misty nothingness. By late next week, you will likely have grown tired of this seeming lack of forward propulsion and, if you haven't spent this week needlessly digging yourself into a hole you'll then have to take time climbing your way out of, will be ready to get your next set of initiatives going. So, knowing this timeline has already been set up for you, you can hopefully derive a relaxing recharge from this fairly unproductive, unassuming interval of in-between-ness.
