Aries (March 21-April 19): “Stop bothering me” is the cry of every sibling on this earth, and also every person who has chosen another to spend his or her life with. Why is it that “bothering” is so often a form of love? Taurus (April 20-May 20): Those who want to know it ask Google. You’re very charming when you throw up your hands and say, “Dunno!” You’ll do this today, and a formidable opponent could let down the guard and become an ally. Gemini (May 21-June 21): The people around you are getting spoiled by your kindness. Do they understand the difference between rights and privileges? You afford everyone respect, but when it comes to the special stuff, make them earn it. Cancer (June 22-July 22): A person’s taste in media is a window to the soul. This is not to be ignored these days while you’re trying to sus someone up. Your prediction in this regard will be meaningful. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You’ve a tremendous need for self-expression today. Also, you might not be quite sure about what you want to say. But what if you could open something in your brain that just let this kind of work flow through you unencumbered? Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Favors are currency, but they are not currency you want to necessarily count on. The thing that you do for another person may or may not come around, but you’ll be better for it either way. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): This day will be imbued with more style than content — more “show” than “go.” Try not to get frustrated by the lack of progress. There should be just enough drama to keep things interesting. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Which is harder: to be accountable to others, or to be accountable to yourself? The latter, obviously. This is a time to place a higher priority on your own business, health and well-being. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Seek likeminded friends. If you make the time to be with these people, the laughter, the good ideas, the feeling empowered and even maybe invincible — that’s what will come. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your mother got this correct: What the crowd does is popular, not right. Do not confuse the two. If 12 people say a dumb thing, it’s still a dumb thing to say. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If, as the Chinese proverb suggests, “a book is like a garden carried in your pocket” then a phone is a full-fledged farm. You’ll use yours for far more than gaming and talking today. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): The good stuff won’t stay in your hands. It’s constantly being traded, as is the nature of the truly good stuff. Knowing this, you can adopt a mindset to better appreciate your moments.
