Aries (March 20-April 19) — Let comfort be your guide. Offer comfort to others. As odd as it might seem for a person of action like yourself to make comfort your cause and objective, it’s not really inconsistent. You know from experience how important it is to make a good start in any endeavor. That’s especially true if the endeavor is a cooperative effort. To ensure that any common enterprise you are currently initiating (and maybe even leading) may be successful, do your expected part and then something more. Work to keep yourself and everybody involved feeling content with their role and confident of what anybody would define as success, and your extra effort will pay off. — by Len Wallick.
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — There is no doubt that you are going places, probably faster than you think. Unlike some subatomic particles, however, you cannot simply leap ahead to where you are going without passing in between. On your way towards your future, you will be interacting with others. Those interactions will leave lasting impressions, which, sooner or later, will catch up with you no matter how fast you are progressing now. Therefore it is important to emphasize the quality of your journey at least as much as reaching your destination. Exercise care so that everybody you meet on your daily way will be a willing and enthusiastic part of your support network when you finally have it made. — by Len Wallick.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Anything unsatisfactory about the recent past can very soon be behind you if you release any attachments you have formed to what is now done. Breakthroughs are up ahead, if you place yourself in a position to make them. One way to get yourself through what might previously have felt like a ceiling is to find the real-world equivalent of a stairwell, escalator, or elevator. Going back to school is one option to consider. Travel is another potential way to expand your horizons. Neither should you limit yourself to making your breakthroughs alone. There could very well be a crew of some sort not only going your way, but also looking for somebody just like you to complete their number. — by Len Wallick.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Give yourself a pat on the back for anything you have recently completed in spite of delays or detours. Then, take a look at your hard-won achievement and try to see it as a beginning. Think of yourself as having laid a foundation rather than having completed a structure, and you will be giving yourself a brighter and more stimulating future than you can currently imagine. The key is to start building on that foundation immediately. Part of the construction will involve offering to share the fruits of completion with others. It is by showing the value of your achievements to those around you that you will come to realize the potential you have cultivated in yourself while simply trying to get something done. — by Len Wallick.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — It’s possible to make friends nearly anywhere. It’s probable that there is at least one area of your life where you have overlooked the possibility of forging bonds or developing relationships — maybe at work; perhaps at school. Could be your admirable ethic of applying yourself with a determined purpose towards attaining your goals is preventing you from seeing what only society with colleagues can offer. It is good to develop yourself to your maximum potential, but no person is an island. When it seems appropriate, don’t hesitate to start conversations, or even to ask for help. While friendship may sometimes include sharing frivolity, it is not frivolous. Create connections. — by Len Wallick.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — You are appreciated more than you know. You are more respected than you think. While those who really, truly do hold you in high regard may have recently fallen short in demonstrating their esteem, don’t be offended. You are not being disregarded. Even if those who are indebted to you have not followed through by showing their gratitude, don’t be upset with them. You are not being taken for granted. The recognition you deserve and the acknowledgement you have coming will accrue with interest in due time. In the meantime, show that you both respect and appreciate yourself by taking care of your health, appearance and welfare so as to set an example of maturity. — by Len Wallick.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — There is a difference between gambling and managing risk. No matter how much skill is involved, gambling still leaves things mostly to chance. The essence of risk management, on the other hand, is to leave as little as possible to chance. Gambling is ultimately recreational, and one should only invest what one can be resigned and willing to lose. By comparison, risk management is occupational, with a realistic and achievable intent to realize gain. Indications are that you should eschew gambling for the time being and manage risk instead. You have a gift for finding a way to gain where others only see a potential for loss. For you, the time to begin employing that gift has come. — by Len Wallick.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — For the foreseeable future, consider exhibiting the functional upside of the fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. This does not necessarily mean you should be chasing down criminals or combating villainy. Leave that to the police. Neither does it entail exhibiting the eccentricities of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous character. Leave that to actors. Rather, you may find this to be a particularly advantageous time for you to first observe everything carefully and in detail, wherever you go and whatever you are doing. Don’t look for anything in particular at first. Simply be very aware and retain what you note. Then, detect. It is likely that everything you need to know at this time is hidden only by inattention. — by Len Wallick.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — Your generosity is a strength. Your magnanimity is an asset. Don’t let any pressure currently originating from outside of you depreciate what you bring to your immediate environment. Neither should you allow any pressure you are putting on yourself to do anything other than motivate you to do and be better. There is no reason to judge yourself harshly for not being perfect. A diamond in the rough is still a diamond. The same applies to you. You are already a precious jewel. Just because you are currently in the process of enhancing your value in the world should not detract from what you intrinsically already are to those who know and love you — ideally including you. — by Len Wallick.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Doors are opening for you in proportion to how much you have been knocking. You know this is true. You have evidence that your efforts do get results. Once those doors open, however, the effort need not stop. There are portals beyond where you think you can enter, and you can find them if you persevere with patience. While it is very possible that applying yourself persistently can lead to rapid advancement soon, don’t allow yourself to be discouraged if results accrue in a slow and steady manner. When big things are showing little progress, attend to one small thing in particular — your morale. The luckiest person in the world is usually the one who considers her or himself to be most fortunate. Keep knocking. — by Len Wallick.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Rain is good. Just ask anybody living through a drought. Yet, rainy days have a bad reputation they do not deserve. Now is an excellent time to look at what some commonly disparaged life circumstances might mean to you were they yours to live. It would also be a good idea to understand what others might find enviable about your circumstances now. This means more than counting your blessings — though that would not be a bad idea. Beyond living in gratitude, you might also want to reconsider some life options that you have disregarded or dismissed in the past. It could very well be that some of those options will soon become not only available, but also highly desirable. — by Len Wallick.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Golf is a game within a game. All of the mindsets, reflexes, postures, practices, disciplines and tools that combine to get you from the tee to the green within the requisite number of strokes are no longer of any value once it is time for you to putt. Upon occasion, life can be like golf in that way. Indications are that this may be just such a time for you. It could very well be that you have successfully made it to the point where you need to change the strategies, methods and tactics that have propelled you this far. In order to follow through and complete your triumph-in-the-making, consider how a delicate approach to circumstances might be more appropriate than striking with all your might. — by Len Wallick.
