ARIES March 21 - April 20 You’re tempted to fake an ex­cuse in order to get out of un­fin­ished chores to­day. Un­for­tu­nately, you may risk more than is log­i­cal as re­bel­lious Uranus in your spon­ta­neous sign ac­ti­vates rowdy Mars in your 5th House of Play. Find a way to bring some ex­cite­ment into your life.

TAURUS April 21 - May 21 It’s all too easy to set­tle into a rou­tine, some­thing is pre­vent­ing you from tak­ing the next step. There’s plenty to do around the home, luck­ily, you have an op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore new ways of do­ing the same things. Meis­ter Eck­hart wrote, “Be will­ing to be a be­gin­ner ev­ery sin­gle morn­ing.”

GEMINI May 22 - June 21 You are in your el­e­ment to­day -- the noise level picks up and you want to hear ev­ery sound. Although there doesn’t seem to be enough time, you still want to do ev­ery­thing. Iron­i­cally, you might be able to get away with cram­ming more ac­tiv­i­ties into your day than any­one ex­pects.

CANCER June 22 - July 23 A sud­den shift in plans might in­clude more peo­ple than you bar­gained for to­day. Red-hot Mars is heat­ing up shock­ing Uranus in your 10th House of Sta­tus, spon­ta­neously pulling you into the pub­lic eye, even if you were imag­in­ing a quiet day at home. Go with the so­cial flow.

LEO July 24 - Au­gust 23 You are as ra­di­ant as the proud Sun to­day, shin­ing your love and light wher­ever you go. But you also carry the el­e­ment of sur­prise, chal­leng­ing oth­ers to fig­ure out your next move be­fore you make it. Your in­creased sense of in­de­pen­dence sur­rounds you with an air of un­pre­dictabil­ity.

VIRGO Au­gust 24 - Septem­ber 23 Although you are acutely aware of your rep­u­ta­tion for ef­fi­ciency, an un­ruly part of your per­son­al­ity could sur­face. You try to bury your height­ened in­di­vid­u­al­ism be­cause you don’t want to up­set the prover­bial ap­ple cart. How­ever, de­nial only strength­ens your cur­rent need for non­con­for­mity.

LI­BRA Septem­ber 24 - Oc­to­ber 23 Your friends seem to be op­er­at­ing out­side the rules, and you don’t know what they’re will­ing to risk. Although you might be un­sure of your own lim­i­ta­tions, you’re cu­ri­ous to see where the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion will lead. Rumi wrote, “The gar­den of the world has no lim­its, ex­cept in your mind.”

SCORPIO Oc­to­ber 24 - Novem­ber 22 Your words are so con­vinc­ing now that it’s un­likely any­one will hin­der your progress. You can take con­trol of any sit­u­a­tion by clearly in­form­ing oth­ers of what you want. Nov­el­ist Daniel Wal­lace wrote, “A sto­ry­teller makes up things to help other peo­ple; a liar makes up things to help him­self.”

SAGITTARIUS Novem­ber 23 - De­cem­ber 21 You may think you’re act­ing ju­di­ciously when you’re ac­tu­ally tak­ing an un­nec­es­sary risk. You see your goal as eas­ily at­tain­able, with­out re­al­iz­ing you are mis­cal­cu­lat­ing the dis­tance. Pro­fes­sor Randy Pausch said, “We can­not change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.”

CAPRICORN De­cem­ber 22 - Jan­uary 20 Mes­sages from your un­con­scious pop into aware­ness to­day. You’re not the hap­pi­est camper when meta­phys­i­cal light­ning strikes, wak­ing you from your idyl­lic dream­ing. Although you are par­tic­u­larly fond of know­ing the facts, you were also quite com­fort­able in your ig­no­rance.

AQUARIUS Jan­uary 21 - Fe­bru­ary 19 You could be at the end of your rope to­day, wor­ry­ing that a re­cent con­ver­sa­tion may ac­tu­ally de­lay your for­ward progress. You are less mo­ti­vated by the po­ten­tial of com­mer­cial suc­cess than by your abil­ity to max­i­mize an op­por­tu­nity for per­sonal growth. Re­la­tion­ships are not re­place­able.

PISCES Fe­bru­ary 20 - March 20 You have one-hun­dred-and-one items on your to-do list and, although you won’t know­ingly quit a job too soon, it’s un­likely you’ll fin­ish them all. For­tu­nately, no one blames you for any un­com­pleted tasks, as long as oth­ers can see you re­ally tried. Don’t go out of your way to put on a show.
