For the week of February 14

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19, The Ram)

Your only true defense against stress is patience. Unfortunately for you that word might as well be ancient Greek. Patience requires faith. This week if you're in a rut, slow down, relax, and get comfortable again.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20, The Bull)

It's easy to feel like the center of the universe at times. Sometimes this is very cozy. But in order to live a fulfilling life, that notion has to be destroyed. It is ironic, but you will feel more complete when you help others.

Gemini (May 21-June 20, The Twins)

You may have been told to "look both ways" before crossing the street as a kid. This week you are bound to come upon a crossroads. Before making a change, write down pros and cons and speak to a close friend.

Cancer (Jun. 21-Jul. 22, The Crab)

You tend to like it best when things are in there place. Keep that in mind if you find you are running all over town lately. Why fight what's in your best interest? Stop fighting the current. Spend time preparing for the next adventure.

Leo (Jul. 23-Aug. 22, The Lion)

Don't stop surrendering. I know, it's absurd. But it's the best you got. You can still be the loudest one in the group, and tell all of your crazy stories. But surrender your will. You'll see things differently.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22, The Maiden)

We can teach others in all sorts of ways. Sometimes by saying the least, you are sharing the most. Continue to use discretion with what you say, even when you are challenged. You'll gain strength.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22, The Scales)

If you're lucky you have obvious close relatives or pets that need your undivided attention. You may not be so lucky. If you find you are walking alone it's best to find someone or a group to begin sharing with.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21, The Scorpion)

Is there a key to life, or is life more like a rhythm where we are the instruments? If it's the former try finding one that's true for you. If it's the latter, then we can sometimes fall out of key and need tuning. It might even be a little of both.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21, The Centaur)

Sometimes we do the right thing and unfortunately it is ill-perceived or seems under appreciated. The important thing is not to be discouraged. Acceptance is true progression and will ease your mind.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19, The Goat)

You may have a looming financial burden, or even recently have taken a hit in that department. Stay focused on what you want, and work to get there. Be humble enough to like where you are now though. We don't get an unlimited time on earth.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18, The Water-bearer)

We face tough decisions sometimes. They are this way because we want certain things, now. Before doing something you might regret, talk it over with a friend. You'll be surprised how an unbiased party sees things.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20, The Fish)

If we are emotionally unfit, little jolts can throw us off track. But with effort you can reach a level where even tough jolts can't harm you the same as they once have. Seek a complete overhaul if you must.
