For the week of May 9

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

A great thinker said that genius is nothing but a great aptitude for patience. This goes against everything you know, of course. But nonetheless sometimes we're just waiting for an opportunity.

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

While sure you may know some things for certain, you don't know everything. This is a good week to allow your mind to absorb new knowledge. Or learn to let a bad thought pass. Thought-life is a real thing, ya know!

Gemini (May 21-June 20, The Twins)

Fear is brutal. It can stop us dead in our tracks. It can make us say and do things we would never do. But by facing your fear this week and doing that thing you're afraid of, death of fear is certain.

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

They say it's impossible until someone does it. For you this could mean leaving the house on Sunday. All kidding aside, try to accomplish something you've thought to be impossible. Try again, and again, and again. One day at a time.

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

Honesty and integrity are some of your best attributes. This week make good use of them and all your other strengths and blessings will shine brighter.

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

Avoid compulsively making things worse. That was not meant to be funny. How? Well, just stop for one. Pause. Meditate. Listen to the quietest voice for the answer. Then try to make it better.

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

Some say language was developed to let us complain about things. But complaining without care and consultation is more useless than remaining quiet and patient. The key is knowing what you want. Write that down this week and go.

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

Acceptance and adaptation are the keys to moving forward, if you feel this week like you've hit a wall. Easier said than done, but remember that the universe will provide. Feel grateful that your needs are met today.

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

Everything matters. It all serves to further. So if you're putting your hand in the cookie jar remember the consequences will only compound. On the other hand, if you keep giving selflessly, just think about that future.

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

Speak clearly this week. No one knows how to help you if you can't even help yourself by speaking straight to someone. Work on your self-esteem this week by ridding yourself of a negative habit, and you will come to feel better.

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

This week you may attend a party where strange customs prevail. Knowing you, you're probably the one throwing it though. Don't be too weird or creepy, and try not to act too special this week.

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

It's important to you that money not be important. So if you're feeling stressed because of debt or money issues this week, do something that requires little of it. You can figure out a trip to get you back to the good stuff.
