ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you enjoy wholesome things, you don’t have to choose between a good reputation and a good time. Of course, most people need some spice on their vegetables. This explains the afternoon.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If it’s Venus who lends the special stardust of super-attraction, then the lady of the sky practically empties her purse over you today. You’re so attractive that you need reminding to wield that power responsibly.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). How important is it to you that the ones you share space with also share your aesthetic sense? Answer: It’s just important enough for you to get bothered over a little something tonight. Be cool, be nice, and it all gets worked out.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s nothing that will make you feel more loved than someone listening to you, really giving you their full attention instead of just waiting for their turn to talk. Humor, fun and play all start with listening.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your heart is hungry. Feed it by seeking to connect with quality people. Romance comes to your life like a cat. Chase it and it runs away. Ignore it and it purrs at your feet.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your inner drive for material success will connect you with others who either want the same thing, or who can provide it. If there’s one thing that will help, it’s a philosophical acceptance of life and its many changing states.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Does it feel like opposing forces are fighting for your soul? More likely it’s just a sign that you could do more to help yourself follow your own rules. Is there a way to be happier with what’s good for you?

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re on a social hot streak. Work the phone, throw a party, take advantage of your popularity. The best relationships start with a solid basis of friendship.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll appreciate the range of people in your life today. Some folks are a party, some a dirge, and most are a mixed bag of spoils. No one is better than another, and all have their proper place in your scene.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Self-criticism can be constructive if you’re fair and if you focus on what you want to improve. Self-bullying isn’t the same thing. Recognize the difference.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re usually the giver, so when loved ones take care of you for a change today, it will feel a little strange. Allow it anyway. Balance must be restored.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Mentally trade viewpoints with those you want to influence. What’s in it for them? Ask this over and over, as the first answers are likely to be only a small part of the entire dynamic.
