Aries (March 21-April 19): You’re persuasive, mainly because you don’t seem to care whether they follow your lead or not. You’re doing it for your own curiosity, improvement and pleasure. They’ll follow because you make it look like such a good idea. Taurus (April 20-May 20): You can mind your own business with the best of ‘em, but of course you’re not going to do that in the instance where harm could come to the defenseless. It is in everyone’s best interest to look out for general public welfare. Gemini (May 21-June 21): If it’s not working for you, be bold enough to ask for a change. Today is filled with potential in the form of creative tools and flexible arrangements. You can truly design your time as you wish. Cancer (June 22-July 22): You’re all for representing the real you, but which one? The wise adjust to bring the personality and approach that are most appropriate to the situation. Today’s success depends on bringing the right “you” to the moment. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Not everyone requires the same amount of affection, and certainly different people prefer love to be displayed in different ways. You’re in such a lucky cycle now to be able to give and receive with mutually satisfying results. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You have no idea how your supportive encouragement will make someone’s day better. Your sign mate Mother Teresa said, “Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.” Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You often grow in indirect ways, mostly by helping others get where they want to be. Just don’t wait until everyone around you is perfectly squared away to invest in yourself, because that day may never come. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): It’s not too much to ask for someone to treat you in the way you want to be treated. The person who made you feel that way was probably just ill-equipped for what you were asking. Keep trying new avenues. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s not what you say but how you say it — with warmth, charm, humility and simplicity. This promotes a certain feeling around you that makes people trust you and want to be near you. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re not sure what is stopping you from going forward. Are you afraid? Is something rubbing you the wrong way? Is this just about a mood? How frustrating. Reach out to a mentor. It’s an important case to crack. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Usually, if you don’t know how you’re going to complete it, you’ll be tempted not to take it on in the first place. Today’s opportunity is different. You won’t get one quite like this again. It’s worth a go, if only for the novelty. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): It will feel as though everything you are doing, you are doing quite publicly. In a way, this will keep you in check. You strive to exhibit grace in all things.
