ARIES (March 21-April 19). A special friendship is gathering momentum. Not only is it bigger than the sum of its parts but also it’s as though the relationship is an entity with a life all its own, independent and distinct of the two of you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What matters to you personally matters in the larger scheme, too. How could it not? You’re an integral part of this web of life. You may not see or feel that all of the time, but never stop believing it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Moods come and go, but the product of them often lingers. Symbols of good times and bad may be scattered around your psyche and/or your house, and if you can proactively manage them, you’ll be better off.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Friends will offend and disappoint. This is practically a hallmark of friendship, as a certain level of intimacy is needed for this to occur. The good will far outweigh the bad if you stick with it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are power-ups in this game of life. They come in the form of uplifting people, bright and shining situations, inspiring media and tools to pick up that energize you or give you special powers. Seize the opportunities; they will be plentiful.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Subtle power conflicts will be at play, so pay attention. It’s all in the face. If anyone can smooth things over with charm, you’re the one to do it. You’ll ease tensions before they get out of hand.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you’re not sure whether you can do it or not, you’re smart. The crisis of confidence only happens to people who live in the real world, observe their surroundings and assess their risks with skill. A realistic point of view will pay off.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are those who will use a situation for all its worth and then move along when something better comes. Loyalty is important. Weigh your next move carefully.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re a self-creation, but not entirely, of course. And that line you’ll walk between forming yourself and adapting yourself will be the main interest of the day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be surrounded by comfortable, accepting, fun-loving people, and you’ll feel free to be yourself. This is a gift. Later, the hard-nosed types come in with their lofty expectations, and that will be a gift of a different kind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You won’t just join the conversation; you’ll give yourself over to it and let it lift you like a magic carpet into worlds unknown. Ask a good question, open your ears, and get ready to be carried away.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It is sometimes necessary to be very discriminating and critical of the world, though too much analyzing is likely to cut you off from the natural, giddy, carefree joy that is your gift today.


ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s harmony in your relationships now — a happy but fragile condition worthy of your protection. You intuitively understand that good times are too precious to take for granted.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can be spontaneous when you feel like it, but the opportunities don’t always arise. They will today, though, and it will be lucky to say “yes” to unexpected invitations.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s easy to tell who the poor listeners are. They may turn their heads toward a speaker, but their bodies are inclined away, seemingly blocking the message. Trust your instincts.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). In regard to your special project, you’ll need just a little more faith to accomplish a desired result. Go forward as if you already had the funding in place. What happens after that will surprise and delight you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be a sort of teacher today, and you would do well to make it a policy to grade on a curve, holding others to standards relative to the current situation instead of standards of some ideal beyond the realm.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A financial win is in store. This has little to do with math skills; rather, it’s your high emotional intelligence to credit. Your top-rate social skills are such that people with money want to buy into whatever you’re selling.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don’t worry about what to say. If you’re fully there, you won’t even need words. Your presence will say everything. A focus on being increasingly aware of your surroundings will bring profound knowledge.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Avoid bribing people. Don’t pay for what should be given to you naturally. Payment has a way of supplanting people’s intrinsic motivation — and even their sense of decency.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re all about providing real help, workable solutions and genuine care for those around you. You have no interest in getting people to buy into what they don’t need. Herein lies the secret to today’s success.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Those overly concerned with their correctness will miss the point that you understand perfectly. Some things are never going to be all that great, but you still grow from the experience of dealing with them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Even though you’re smart to assess what’s in it for you or what’s in it for others, don’t assume you’ll figure it out. Some things are just worth it, even if nobody really knows why.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sacred things have a different resonance but are no better or worse than regular things. So while you honor sacred things, you love ordinary things, too, seeing them as worthy of your attention and care.
