ARIES (March 21-April 19): "No regrets? Really?" asks author Richard Power. "I have regrets. They are sacred to me. They inform my character. They bear witness to my evolution. Glimpses of lost love and treasure are held inside of them; like small beautiful creatures suspended in amber." I think you can see where this horoscope is going, Aries.

Hold them to your heart when you want to remember the price you paid to become who you truly are." (Find more by Richard Power here: tinyurl.com/RichardPower.)
