ARIES (March 21-April 19)

How you talk to yourself and how you react to your own thoughts will determine whether or not you succeed.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

A certain someone captures your attention. Your curiosity could develop into attraction.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

The abrupt changes you must react to today will serve to heighten your awareness and sharpen your senses.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your creative, ambitious mind sometimes interferes with your ability to come up with appropriate goals. The ideal goal for you is personally meaningful, probable and yet still uncertain.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Anyone can say thank you, but you find a way to do it that sends the message straight to the heart.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You are receptive to joy in its minute forms now, so it’s not surprising that you feel fulfilled by ordinary gestures and everyday niceties.

You have a way of softening others, lulling them to let down their defenses and relax into the possibilities.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Think ahead, make a plan, and hold your dearest intentions at the forefront of your mind. This is what it will take to make the opportunities you desire open before you.

You’ll be a leader for newbies. Your calm demeanor makes others feel safe.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You can’t react to everything — or rather, you could, but it would be both exhausting and unwise. You discern between what deserves your tolerance and what requires your response.
