(March 21-April 19)
Aries poet Ada Limón advises us to notice and love "the music of the world." She says that praising and giving attention to the good things "are as important and necessary as witnessing and naming and holding the grief and sorrow that comes with being alive." This is always a crucial principle to keep in mind, but it will be extra essential for you in the coming weeks. Your ability to attract the influences and resources you need most will thrive if you focus on and celebrate the music of the world. PS: I encourage you to sing more than usual, too.


Wouldn't you love to learn more about who you really are? What better adventure is there than learning about your soul's code? The greatest fun you can possibly have is to be completely yourself. For more hints, listen to your EXPANDED AUDIO HOROSCOPE.


(April 20-May 20)
Here's my hope for you in the coming months: You will cultivate a specialty for connecting people and situations that need to be affiliated but aren't yet. You will regard your flair for blending as a gift you offer generously. Can you picture yourself doing that? I think it will be fun and will also benefit you in unexpected ways. So here's my proposed plan: Conspire to heal fragmentation and schisms. Unite heavenly and earthly things. Keep the far side and the near side in touch with each other. Never let the past forget about the future, and vice versa. One more thing, Taurus: Be gleefully imaginative as you mix and conjoin and combine.


I hope the oracle above provides you with the inspiration you need to do what you've got to do and change what needs to be changed. But if you need more clues -- if you'd like to get further inspiration for your quest to become your best self -- listen to your EXPANDED AUDIO HOROSCOPE, where I go even deeper in exploring your mysteries.


(May 21-June 20)
In a play by Gemini philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, a character says, "Hell is other people." What did he mean by that? One interpretation is that our fellow humans always judge us, and their judgments rarely align with who we really are and who we imagine ourselves to be. Here's my solution for that problem: Choose allies and companions whose views of you match your own. Is that so hard? I suspect it will be easier than usual for you in the coming months, Gemini. Take advantage of life's natural tendency to connect you with cohorts who appreciate you. Be picky as you avoid the hell of other people.

(June 21-July 22)
The people most likely to succeed as entrepreneurs are those with a high degree of analytical intelligence. Right? Well, it's more complicated than that. Reasoning ability and problem-solving skills are key skills, but not as important as emotional intelligence: the power to understand and manage feelings. I mention this, Cancerian, because the coming months will be a favorable time to advance your ambitions by enhancing and expressing your emotional intelligence. Here's some reading to foster your powers:

1. Emotion Smarts

2. Smart Feeler

3. Wise Feeler

4. Bright Feeler

(July 23-August 22)
In the coming weeks, Leo, I urge you to always be confident that YOU ARE THE PARTY! Everywhere you go, bring the spirits of fun and revelry. Be educationally entertaining and entertainingly educational. Amuse yourself by making life more interesting for everyone. At the same time, be kind and humble, never arrogant or insensitive. A vital part of your assignment is to nourish and inspire others with your radiance and charm. That formula will ensure you get everything you need. I foresee bounty flowing your way! PS: Regularly reward your admirers and followers with your magnanimous Chesire-cat grin.


What exactly are you looking for? How would you describe the experiences you want more than anything else? What's your purpose here on earth? It's possible my EXPANDED AUDIO HOROSCOPE could give you additional help in figuring out more of those mysteries.


(August 23-September 22)
In my Astrological Book of Life, here's what I have inscribed about Virgos: You may not always find the perfect solution, but you are skilled at finding the best solution available. This will be an especially valuable knack in the coming weeks, both for yourself and others. I trust you will scan for practical but compassionate answers, even if they are partial. And I hope you will address at least some of everyone's needs, even if no one is completely satisfied. You can be the master of creative compromise that we all need. Thanks in advance for your excellent service!

(September 23-October 22)
Everyone knows that "balance" is a keyword for you Librans. However, there are many interpretations of what balance entails. Here's how I define it for you during the coming weeks: 1. an openness to consider several different ways to capitalize on an opportunity, but to ultimately choose just one way; 2. the ability to see and understand all sides of every story, while also knowing that for pragmatism's sake you must endorse a single version of the story; 3. the capacity to be both constructively critical and supportively sympathetic; 4. the facility to be welcoming and inviting while still maintaining healthy boundaries.

(October 23-November 21)
"Life is enchanting for me because I have so much control over what I think," my Scorpio friend Daria told me. "If I decide to flatter myself with comments about how attractive I am, I can do just that. If I would like to imagine a good fairy visiting me while I sleep and giving me a dream of having an orgasm with my lover while we fly over the Serengeti Plains, I can." I asked her about the times when worries gush forth unbidden from her subconscious mind and disturb her joy. She said, "I simply picture myself shoving those worries in a hole in the ground and blowing them up with an exploding rose." I bring Daria's mind-management expertise to your attention, Scorpio, because the coming weeks will be an excellent time for you to raise your mastery over what you think.

(November 22-December 21)
People might impatiently advise you to relax and settle down. Others might tell you to stop dreaming such big visions and formulating such adventurous plans. Still others might give you the side-eye because they imagine you are having too much fun and brainstorming too wildly and laughing too loudly. If you receive messages like those, give the complainers a copy of this horoscope. It will tell them that YOU WILL NOT COMPLY WITH ANY INHIBITING DIRECTIVES. Your astrologer, me, authorizes you to be as vast and venturesome and enterprising and spontaneous as you dare. In doing so, I am speaking on behalf of the cosmic rhythms. Your plucky audacity has been heavenly ordained.


Where do you want to go? Who do you want to be? How can you guide yourself to be in a position where you know exactly what you want pretty much all the time? For more clues, tune in to your EXPANDED AUDIO HOROSCOPE.


(December 22-January 19)
In accordance with astrological omens, I hereby authorize you to worry, worry, and worry some more. Stew and simmer and ferment as you weigh all the options and mull the correct actions. But when the time is right, end your fretting with crisp decisiveness. Shake off any residual doubt that still clings to you. And then undertake robust action to transform the situation that provoked your righteous brooding. In my astrological opinion, what I have just described is your best plan for success in the coming days.

(January 20- February 18)
“I was looking for a love unlike my parents' love or my sister's love or the love on a foreign kitchen floor," writes Rebecca Dinerstein Knight in her novel *The Sunlit Night*. "I wanted to forgive my mother and father for their misery and find myself a light man who lived buoyantly and to be both his light and his dark." I offer you her thoughts, Aquarius, in the hope of inspiring you to expand and deepen your ideas about the love you want. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to revise and reinvigorate your definitions of intimacy and togetherness. You will have extra power to see new truths about how best to create maximum synergy and symbiosis.

“Even raw and messy emotions can be understood as a form of light, crackling and bursting with energy," writes Jungian psychoanalyst Clarissa Pinkola Estés. For example, "We can use the light of rage in a positive way, in order to see into places we cannot usually see." Likewise, confusion might be a healthy sign that a long-held misunderstanding is dissolving. Disappointment may herald the demise of an unrealistic expectation. So let's unleash a big cheer for raw and messy emotions, Pisces! I suspect they will soon be your gateway to clarity and renewal.


No one knows you better than you do, but maybe I can help you dig up even more self-knowledge. I'm certainly not an omniscient guru, but I do have some skill at inspiring you to be in intimate contact with your inner teacher. Listen to your EXPANDED AUDIO HOROSCOPE.
