Details do tend to clump up, just like lint -- and especially if you don't tackle them right away! When they start to feel mountainous, the odds of an avalanche can seem overwhelming. The good news is that you just have to tackle them one by one (the way you should have in the beginning), and they should be out of the way in no time. Resolve to not let things get out of hand on the next time around and you're all set.

Sometimes you just need to hang on for the ride without trying to change its course. Taking drastic measures might bring things to an abrupt halt, forcing you to go tumbling head over heels, but you might actually have a lot of fun if you loosen up and let yourself go. You may not be in control of the situation, but ask yourself this: When are you ever really in total control of any situation? Relax and have fun!

You know that the best things in life are free. Keep that in mind when something large, shiny and unnecessary crosses your mind today. If your budget can stand the purchase, go ahead -- but ask yourself if it's absolutely essential for you and your lifestyle. Expensive items and services can end up costing a lot in terms of your mental health!

Sometimes your inner needs match up with what the outer world can supply in an almost magical way. This is definitely one of those days! It's not like the universe is a pinata, exactly (although getting showered with candy doesn't sound so bad) -- it's just that people, places and situations manage to sync up in just the right way at just the right time. That's actually way better than candy, isn't it?

You may be somewhat past playground age, but there are still some games you need to learn how to play. In flirtation, for example, the point isn't to duck the incoming missile. Instead, you learn to take turns tossing questions back and forth. Of course, the real skill you need to learn is simple listening. Once you learn that simple trick, everyone in the game ends up a winner.

Family matters are front and center for you right now, with good reason. You've had something in mind when it comes to your relations, and today, reminders of that one issue keep popping up. Your energy drags you back to remind you of your priorities, and it can be more persistent than a personal assistant. Go ahead and check in with someone who really knows you well.

The universe is flashing a yellow light at you -- and that means caution, not 'go very fast!' Have you been living life at the speed of light? It's time to evaluate exactly what you're getting out of this speed, because if you keep it up, the result is sure to be burnout. Your friends and family haven't seen enough of you lately as a result of all this hard work, so why not do something to help you regain balance?

No situation is so insignificant that it can't spark a deep philosophical discussion. Get into the spirit of things -- it's been far too long since you've exercised your intellect in debating some big questions. It may be with with an old friend or a stranger you just met at the coffee shop, but you should expect to work those mental muscles contemplating the deepest issues. You feel like you've been given a new sense of perspective afterward.

If you let go a bit, you should get a little peace. If you let go a lot, you should get as much peace as you can handle. While it may feel more comfortable to hang onto something from your past, it's actually causing far more distraction than you realize -- and may be preventing you from seeing how lovely the future can be. Learn to forgive, even if you can't quite forget just yet. You've got too much ahead of you to waste a moment on yesterday.

Nobody knows you like your family. Still, they're sometimes less than willing to give credit where it's due for all the growing up you've done lately. Don't throw a temper tantrum -- that just confirms their worst suspicions. Take a deep breath (or a few more) and give yourself the praise you know you deserve for the distance you've covered and how much you've grown.

Your energy right now is pushing you hard to get in touch with someone from your past. Whether it's time or circumstances that separated you, the lights are all green and the roads are all clear when it comes to reconnecting. It doesn't matter whether you choose a letter, email or a phone call -- you can rest assured that they are thinking of you, and are thrilled that you reached out.
(02/19 - 03/20)
Go ahead and pat yourself on the back -- isn't it time you gave yourself the credit you know you deserve? You've come a long way, covering distances and overcoming obstacles that you never thought you could. Even when the rest of the world said no, you pressed onward, so go ahead and rest on your laurels for the moment. Life doesn't always have to be so demanding!
