ARIES (March 21-April 19): To love and to be loved — everything else is superfluous. You are one of the lucky ones. Not everything is perfect right now, but you have a special person who’s there for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Anyone who thinks that good things come to you without effort on your part doesn’t understand the whole story. You make a point of working hard even when you don’t feel like it. You deserve to be lucky.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): A friend’s well-intended but misplaced advice leaves you wondering why you tell your problems to anyone. Remember: That same friend recently said something that all but saved you. Don’t put too much importance on any one act.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): Little victories add up to major ones. Remember that when you receive some favorable news in the near future. It is a sign that you are on your way. In a big way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your internal compass isn’t lying. You’re heading in the right direction, even though right now you feel like you’re holding a flashlight in a dark storm, only able to see a few feet in front of you at a time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A new project has you wondering whether you made the right decision. You did. It’s going to take some time to hit your stride, but a key person will appear at a critical moment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You weren’t lying when you told a friend how annoyed you are with your job. What you didn’t expect was that they would take the initiative to help you out. Clearly, you have excellent taste in people. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Old habits die hard. Sometimes you forget that you have nothing to hide. You belong in the light. Instead of shying away from it, you should be chasing it. Follow the beams to see where they lead. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sometimes you have to chase down the thing you most want, and sometimes you have to wait for it to come to you. This is one of the latter times, when your hard-earned patience will serve you well.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The only thing better than being talented is being talented and having talented friends. You have both. Nothing can stop you as long as you use what you have.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A child you know says something that makes you laugh. Share it and your friends will laugh, too. The child is remarkable, and it’s fun to watch him or her grow up.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): For every Goliath, there is a stone. You’ve been looking far and near, but the giant-slaying stone has been right in front of you. You have nothing to fear now: Your aim is true.
