ARIES (March 21-April 19):
Rob: As an experiment, I've been trying to soften myself—to see what it's like
to stand in a room and not always take the lead, not assume that no one else
knows what they're doing except me. It's had an interesting effect so far:
People seem more eager to play nice and offer me their good energy. But I don't
know if I'm willing to give up my take-charge instincts for much longer. Do I
have to resign myself to either being strong or being loved? -Assertive
Aries." Dear Assertive: Could you add a little more love to your
take-charge ferocity? And be more softly aggressive? And be open-hearted in
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I'm betting on the imminent arrival of at least two of the following climaxes: (1) You'll culminate a task or goal you've been working on for months. (2) You'll remember an important intention you'd forgotten for a long time. (3) You'll graduate from a crash course you've been taking since October 2006. (4) You'll be reunited with a lost sheep or forsaken dream that's ready for another chance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If given three wishes by a fairy godmother, as in the heroes of old fairy tales, you probably wouldn't ask for the ability to fly or the power to turn invisible or the gift of a golden carriage pulled by eight white horses crowned with white ostrich feathers. But what would you choose? Something like "I wish I could solve my relationship problems"? Or maybe "I wish I could find my direction in life," or "I wish I had enough money to do the things I love to do"? This is an excellent time to get clear about your three wishes, Gemini. If you do, I can almost guarantee that at least one of them will come closer to fulfillment in the coming weeks.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): When Emperor Joseph II heard Mozart's opera Abduction from the Seraglio in 1782, he remarked, "Too many notes, my dear Mozart, too many notes!" Sound familiar? I suspect you are exuding so much complex beauty and mysterious intelligence that, like Mozart, you may elicit responses akin to the emperor's. Don't take it personally. Though it is possible you'll get a bit excessive, what's more likely is that you'll be as deep and rich and concentrated and emotive and vivid as you need to be in order to express what's true for you right now. Will that make some people feel nervous or overwhelmed? Probably.
