Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
One of the most fun games on the planets to play as a kid is also perhaps one of the dumbest to play as an adult: stare-down contests. If you’re a competitive Aries, then you might enjoy the thrill of beating somebody in almost anything. If you’re a non-competitive Ram (and there are plenty of those), then you might blink just to end the madness, knowing in your heart of hearts that you could have stared longer. (Or maybe not.) The kicker, of course, is that if you’re tempted to get in a stare-down contest, with practically anyone this week, you’re wasting your time.  Everyone feels like they can be stubborn enough to win without the clarity to know what’s worth winning. As you approach a Libra new moon on Friday, you’ll find it’s better to be gracious and concentrate on where the bling is than who’s gonna blink.
