MAR 21 - APR 19

The first one on the bus gets the seat of their choice. Although whatever bus you get on at the start of the week may take a circuitous route. Adventure is in the air. Tuesday and Wednesday, the detours pay off: Everything the world puts in your path is useful to you in some way. Your reputation at work is top-of-mind, and nothing satisfies you more than coming into a whole bunch of sudden success on Thursday and Friday. But as you know, what goes up also comes down: This weekend is the comedown. Do as little as possible.



APR 20 - MAY 20

Someone may be devising a scheme to separate you from your money at the start of the week. You are too smart for that. Your charming ways have a sort of steamroller effect, and you may be able to convince someone to bark up another tree by your sheer likeability. Midweek, your thoughts are on travel -- that's one area in which you're willing to be separated from your money, what with all the places you haven't been. Friday finds you trying not to read too much into everyone else's idiosyncrasies. Saturday and Sunday, your friends are as present and supportive as ever.



MAY 21 - JUN 20

You and your partner in crime (or in love) are on a different level on Monday -- a higher plane than everyone else. It's golden. Let yourself bask in it. You can do anything. You're in charge of your destiny. Tuesday and Wednesday, control of your destiny seems a bit more elusive, but an anecdote on Thursday makes you realize you don't even know what you want. (So it's a good thing you're not in charge of the future.) Your opinions have never been as up in the air as they are on Friday. Saturday and Sunday are deep, dreamy days.



JUN 21 - JUL 22

Energy sources are hard to come by on Monday -- all the fossil fuels on the planet couldn't get your engine going. There is a problem in your social or private life, and it may take a few days for you to realize just what it is. Tuesday and Wednesday you're basically hibernating. You require alone time. Thursday and Friday, when you're in conversation with someone else, go for an intellectual connection over an emotional connection. And on Saturday and Sunday, give yourself full license to stare out the window, go butterfly hunting, read -- really, whatever strikes you.



JUL 23 - AUG 22

You're getting ahead of yourself on Monday. If you're single, you'll imagine going on a honeymoon with someone you've just met. If you're married, you'll impulsively want to book a flight to the Bahamas -- even though that's totally impractical right now. Tuesday and Wednesday, happiness is in paying attention to your health and making your services available to any friend in need. Thursday is an exercise in patience. Friday is a day of solutions -- they just float out of your brain -- but Saturday and Sunday present a stunning array of new conundrums.



AUG 23 - SEP 22

You'd like to be at the head of the pack at the start of the week, but nothing you do seems to give you any advantage. You pump your legs and you move an inch. It's almost like you're walking on a conveyor belt in the wrong direction. Tuesday and Wednesday, you'll throw up your hands and let the conveyor belt carry you where it will -- blissfully, into the arms of someone super cute -- but Thursday and Friday bring about an insight into taking control of your life again. This weekend, happily on your way, you'll see a few of your friends in the same situation you were in on Monday.



SEP 23 - OCT 22

You have the balance of a seal on Monday and a lot more skills than a seal in the communication realm. Your ideas are well received, and the responses you get inspire still bigger ideas. Nevertheless, Tuesday and Wednesday are a letdown. You are very much in your head, but your thoughts tend in a looking-into-your-past direction -- in particular, parts of your past that you feel weird about. Thursday and Friday lack weirdness altogether -- except the jumpy, jittery weirdness of romance (a happy weirdness) -- and Saturday and Sunday are so busy you'll be lucky to have a second to think at all.



OCT 23 - NOV 21

The most abstract concepts have a direct correspondence with your day-to-day life at the start of the week. You may feel very influenced by philosophy. You may also have the sense that something is too good to be true. The truth is, things are simply good right now. Midweek, you manage to broker an agreement between two coworkers who normally can't even agree on the time. The upshot of Thursday and Friday, days defined by an emotional outburst on the home front, is an illuminating discovery. Saturday and Sunday, play a game (or just sit around and talk) in someone's yard.



NOV 22 - DEC 21

Your group of friends provides you with everything you need at the outset of the week: respect, confidence, comic relief. Find a way to let them know how you feel. Notes are nice. Tuesday and Wednesday, you may find yourself writing a flurry of them: short, sweet, maybe on a typewriter, maybe on Post-its -- just little letters of admiration. Thursday and Friday, your attention to others extends to the world of strangers. You love knowing what music other people like and what they think about at night as they're falling asleep. Your curiosity is endless. The weekend is mind-expanding.



DEC 22 - JAN 19

Sometimes inventing a structure -- imposing limitations on yourself -- is paradoxically freeing. It clarifies your goals and defines a means to achieve them. Your goals, high-minded as they are, might not seem achievable as you set out this week, but by Wednesday you'll be farther along than you imagined. Thursday and Friday, the future remains your primary interest. You may even babble on about it to people you barely know. You'd be wise to get out of the house -- and out of your head -- on Saturday with a concert or a movie, but Sunday finds you being, yet again, extremely productive.



JAN 20 - FEB 18

You are not alone on Monday. You have your troops behind you at every juncture. You are powerful, although you are choosing to exert your power in benevolent, beneficent ways. Tuesday and Wednesday are unexpectedly complicated days, and you get a bit disoriented in the maelstrom, but by Thursday you'll be sailing toward smoother waters and clearer skies. Friday is also sunny -- metaphorically and perhaps literally -- which everyone seems to interpret as a reflection on you. Saturday and Sunday, you may be sidetracked by someone else's needs, but you're happy to exercise compassion.



FEB 19 - MAR 20

The hyperawareness you experience at the start of the week may be a bit exhausting, but it's extremely useful too. Subjects to be sensitive of: your boss, the way you come across when expressing your opinions, the difference between right and wrong. It's a very mixed bag. What you can do to relieve yourself of anxiety is confide in friends on Wednesday and do some kind of volunteer work (or even just help someone else with their bags at the grocery store) on Thursday. Friday might be frustrating because you won't be able to focus on anything, but Sunday is covered in sprinkles.
