This March, the risk you will take, Cancer, is opening up to a total stranger. You have a tried and true method when it comes to getting to know people, but your low and slow approach tends to yield lukewarm results. The fire and passion you’ve been looking for requires you to turn things up, and when it comes to spice, chefs lean on a wok to create something magical from ripping heat and constant movement. So instead of limiting yourself to one date a week or prolonging your text response time, you’re going to let this phase of the relationship progress at a pace that naturally matches your enthusiasm. The only risk to not holding yourself back is that you won’t be fully reciprocated, but it’s time to ask yourself if you’d prefer equitable indifference to being the person who’s more into the relationship. At least when you put your whole self out there, you’re giving someone a fair chance to meet you halfway, at the true mid-point. You never know who else is holding themselves back because they’re reading into your caution as a lack of interest.
The risk you’ll take this month, Capricorn, is taking that party trick of yours seriously. Whatever it is you only do when you’re drunk, karaoke, impressions, speaking French, writing petty poems about people’s exes, you’re going to give it a go in the sober light of day. Because the truth is you’re passionate about singing, comedy, travel, or fiction but way too intimidated to ever approach the topic from a serious angle. So you let yourself play with the idea after you’ve had a few, under the guise of getting a few laughs or a little attention from something you can blame on your alter ego. Listen to the one friend or the little voice in your head telling you you could actually take a stab at this. Who cares if you’re never going to win a Grammy or an Emmy or a Pulitzer. Ask yourself, is it going to be fun? Am I going to enjoy myself? Will I regret every day I spend thinking of this thing instead of doing it? Put down the glass, look in the mirror, and tell yourself, “Today is the day I try.”
Your risk this month, Aquarius, is hope. Hope for yourself, for your future, for others to help you. You spend so much time focused on everyone but yourself that you haven’t dedicated enough time to self-care lately. So your risk is going to the dentist, scheduling that doctor’s appointment, getting your hair done, going to therapy, booking a massage, blocking off time to read, preparing meals in advance, taking a walk and letting yourself believe that on the other end of any or all of these tasks life will feel a little lighter. Things will get easier. Waking up and getting through the day will be less of a struggle. Because if you don’t take that risk of allowing yourself to have a positive outlook, none of those tasks will seem worth it, and you won’t even give yourself a chance to see results. But one small shift in your perspective can be the catalyst for an inner transformation, because any little thing you do to take care of yourself will yield compounding returns. Eventually your improved quality of life will free up more room to help others.
