ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You have playful energy to burn. After a week of working your horns off, dear ram, you deserve to kick up those heels.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

A change in your vocabulary will bring success. For instance, start referring to a problem as an “interesting challenge” or a “temporary glitch.” Soon your words will make it so.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Even though you can shop with the best of ’em, you’re better off relaxing in a way that doesn’t require you to make choices or decisions.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

You have an eye for authenticity. You’ll offer healing compassion for someone who is all smiles while hurting inside.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’ve been known to take on projects for the very reason that they were difficult. However, if there’s an easier way now, take it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Humans don’t have tails, and yet the circular nature of today’s problems might make you feel as though you’re chasing yours. Take a break.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You’ll be breaking through what you thought were limits. You’ll surprise those who know you well; you may even surprise yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

A pattern that took years to set in can be undone in less than a month. It’s an ideal time to dig into the one habit that would most improve your life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Doing what you say you’re going to do is easy if you only make the kind of promises that involve your own joy, pleasure and delight. Choosing your own happiness will naturally lead to the happiness of others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Because you’re so strong now, someone going through a hard time may lean on you. It will feel good to help and provide reassurance.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

There is no such thing as grunt work. There’s just work you would prefer and work that someone else would prefer. Happiness is finding the right person for a job.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Prepare for delays. Bring something to busy your hands and mind with wherever you go.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY | OCT. 28: You will find support for a stellar idea and run with it over the next four weeks. November will bond you tightly in shared experience with a special someone. January brings a new direction. It may feel at first as if you’re going backward, but you’re not. You won’t strive for spiritual cleansing, and yet it happens in February. Leo and Aries people adore you.
