Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
In general, our peers can either pull us up or pull us down. But the one thing that really depends on you this week, Aquarius, is how either thing happens. You can trust to have the wisdom to know who is pulling you up and down, but don’t make the mistake of NOT using that wisdom. One of the dysfunctions of your sign is that you may think that you’re a law unto yourself, perhaps without peer or, at least, someone who truly understands. This is a pretty cowardly way to view your own personal development, because you can’t be that inscrutable to fathom or faithless in your abilities to reach out. This also means family peers, like siblings, in-laws or cousins. You can make a bigger deal of your differences with folks or work a little harder to find the similarities.
