Aries (March 21-April 19): You don’t have to spend money to be happy, though when you’re out and about it will certainly feel this way. That only means that the marketers are doing their job.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Overnight transformations are the stuff of fairy tales. Reality follows the slow-growth model of striving each day for a small improvement. In four weeks you’ll look back and be impressed by how much you’ve changed.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): It may seem that resisting temptation is only making it harder to resist temptation. However, if you persist, there will come a time in which this trend reverses, and you’ll no longer want what’s bad for you.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Half-full, half-empty — if the glass has anything in it at all, it’s serving the purpose it was made for. Perhaps we don’t need to judge it with such precision. Perhaps we only need to drink.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): There’s so much that’s going right for you today. Then there’s this little section of, well — what doesn’t get better by chance might get better with a concerted effort. And even if it doesn’t, at least you can say you tried.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your even mood makes this an ideal time to do some emotional planning. Make a list of all of the things that could possibly help, should you fall into an emotional rut. If you happen to run into trouble later, you’ll be ready.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The next step is just like the last step. It’s going to go on like this for a while. You’re used to it by now. Maybe you’re even deciding that you love it. The end of the day will bring a mild twist — something wonderful to ponder.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Ona mystical level, it’s intriguing how you can focus yourself in a certain way and then suddenly it’s all you can see. On a practical level, the self-fulfilling prophecy phenomenon is all too real. It’s something you’ll experience and control today.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): What you used to be afraid of is now old hat: Slap it on; look great; no problem. You’ll help another through a fear today — very real, and very silly, too.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): When others start looking to you, talking to you, asking you for advice, it can be very intoxicating to the ego at the beginning. The only way to counter this is to do something intentionally humbling.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You hope that some people will forget you, others will remember you with a stinging poignancy and, in the case of tonight, others will merely remember to give you your food, your money or both.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Even the best baseball players find it hard to hit a curveball. Most would agree, though, that the best way to know what’s going to come at you is to study the pitcher.
