Aries (March 21-April 19): If the cause is right, the aim is true, and the intent is pure, it really shouldn’t matter what your chances of success are. Anyway, once you see the light, your heart won’t let you turn away from it. Taurus (April 20-May 20): Negative comments often sound more realistic than positive ones, but that’s more of a learned bias than anything else. The positive, hopeful words will be more true to life today, not to mention more fun and empowering. Gemini (May 21-June 21): Hot water is only one of the things that keeps you clean. Oxygen to the brain caused by exercise and by people who make you laugh will also be part of today’s purification process. Cancer (June 22-July 22): Because good manners have been so engrained in you, you often respond to the cue to say “thank you” before you start to feel grateful for something. Today you’ll touch someone with your genuine expression of gratitude. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Part of your charm is that you always think of something kind to say, though at times like this the circumstances make it more challenging. “I’ve had a perfectly lovely evening. But this wasn’t it.” — Groucho Marx Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Sin is when a person knows it’s wrong but does it anyway. When a person doesn’t know better, that’s not sin; it’s ignorance. It’s not appropriate to punish ignorance with anything other than knowledge. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Show your love when it’s happening, when it’s welling up in your heart. Don’t hold back. Don’t be afraid. When you treat the present like it’s all you have, it will also be all you need. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): When you exceed expectations and make people smile, you derive such pleasure from this! It’s become something of a game to you. The only thing is, in order to create the desired effect, you have to keep doing more and more. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): With a stranger you can be whoever you want to be. You can stay true to who you’ve been, or you can branch out and try something new. You have fun with this today. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re remarkable because you dare to reach. If you strive for Neptune or Alpha Centauri and you land on Europa instead, well, you’re still a world away from where you were. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The limittesters in your life seem to take pleasure in testing yours and then watching your reaction. Try this: Don’t react. People usually stop pushing the button that appears not to be working. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Since the only constant is change, learning to deal with it calmly will help you conserve your energy and stay powerful. Practice is the only way. Keep riding the changes with as little resistance as possible.
