ARIES (March 21-April 19). The price of a thing is not money. Money is only a representation of effort — someone’s effort, though maybe not the person exchanging the money. Things are worth the life that’s been exchanged for them.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A visit is in the works. Having some time to prepare will give you an advantage. Of course, what happens in the moment is all that matters. But preparation relaxes you, and that makes said “moment” all the more pleasurable.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Being surprised or startled might be fun for some and a lot less fun for others. When it comes to control, people have varying needs. Life might startle you today — not your favorite thing, but you’ll do something good with the rush.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though you live in the midst of an interesting and ever-active crew, you could only describe this existence from a distance. It’s why you owe yourself, and everyone, really, a vacation.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This existence is one of interpretation. One thing can mean many things, depending on whom you ask. The truth is often a soft blend of many different interpretations, which is why it’s important to stay open to ambiguity.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are things you’re compelled to do. It feels as though providence is pushing you toward them in spite of rationality. What makes no sense and is costly and, by all objective opinion, rather dumb might actually be just the thing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It doesn’t have to be an official party to be a “party.” There will be quite a lot of details to tend to in the name of making a gathering memorable. Remember, a party is only as good as the people attending it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind, or so they say, although maybe it’s just a matter of being kind and truthful upfront instead of letting untruths linger, stagnate and become toxic.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You wake up thinking about a thing then fall asleep thinking about it and then wake up again with it on your mind. Time to do something about that, as it’s taking up more room in your brain than is fair to the other things.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don’t concern yourself with the comings and goings of other people. Concern yourself with your own happiness and most of that will, by extension, be settled.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s almost nowhere you can go to air your opinions without offending or delighting someone. Take care in your choosing of confidantes. The walls have ears.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s no fun to watch someone doing the thing they know they can do. The fun is in watching a person do the thing they think they can’t do. Internal conflicts are more real than external ones.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). People will find out who you are through your actions, your stories or because you share your preferences. So you really don’t have to worry about telling them who you are. You’re already showing them.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re gutsy. You forget that sometimes. Or rather, you take it for granted, believing that everyone else is gutsy, too. Not true! You’re lucky when you recognize the quality and make it count today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Before a mutually satisfying deal can be struck, the others will want to understand your story. So let them know where you were, what happened, and why they need to know. That should do it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Self-sufficiency is among your many attractive qualities. You won’t ask your friends to help you unless you truly can’t do on your own. In that case, a Taurus is your ideal support.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Like the cat your sign is named for, you are choosy about who you like, and then obsessively loyal to your chosen ones. Also like a cat, curled up and cozy will be your default mode today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People have their own agendas, but they might adopt yours if it is appealing enough. People are usually willing to forgo their plan when there’s something more interesting, attainable, lucrative, fun, urgent or important to do.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you stop saying yes so often, people will take notice. They will value your time and services a little more, seeing them as limited commodities that others also want.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You love to know what’s really going on in people’s lives, but mostly they show you what their lives look like instead of what they feel like. Good thing you never go strictly by appearances.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your compassion is an enormous strength. You will ideally use it to be helpful, to teach others and/or be the catalyst for their growth. What you don’t want is to enable others or “fix” them, which never works.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Aim for the middle of the road. You’ll hit the perfect note: surprising, but not obvious; spontaneous, but not impulsive; romantic, but nobody’s fool.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If “play” is an art form, you’re a fine artist indeed today. You’ll be so involved in your process of curious enjoyment that you won’t even think to stop and commemorate it. This is living.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In friendship, you’ll deal with the other person’s flaws or be kind enough to look the other way. But you’re stricter when your heart’s on the line. There are standards that must be met before you give your trust.
