ARIES: Aug. 7-13

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings,” says author Elizabeth Gilbert. Experiment with this subversive idea. For a week, see what happens if you devote time to making yourself feel good. Go to extremes as you pursue happiness with focused zeal. Draw up a list of experiences you know will give intense pleasure, then indulge without apology. Don’t fret about the chance of being crazed with joy. Be assured the cosmos is giving you more slack than usual.
