Aries (March 21-April 19): To some extent you believe as your peers do, though you also have private beliefs that you don’t share often. It’s a joy when a like-minded person comes along with whom you can converse frankly and honestly. Taurus (April 20-May 20): Watch your words, especially the ones you tell yourself. Keep it sunny. It does you no good to assume that when bad things happen it’s “just your luck” — especially today, when fortune is truly smiling on you. Gemini (May 21-June 21): As for that problem you’ve been unable to solve — it’s time to approach it from a theoretical place. Think bigger. Ponder the philosophy that’s causing the pain. Then put those thoughts aside and try once more for a practical fix. Cancer (June 22-July 22): You could say that, when it comes to relationships, you have an impeccable sense of rhythm. Every relationship needs closeness and space. You’ve a knack for sensing the right amount of each. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re not the first one with this problem. It’s been experienced by kings and slaves, poets and politicians and saints. The solutions have been written down through the ages. Seek the wisdom of the ancients. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Use what works for you. It doesn’t matter where the item comes from, what matters is how well you can apply it to your life for the outstanding results you’ve been wanting to achieve. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You do what you do because you are who you are. Then again, all that will change when you do different things and become someone else. Nothing is fixed. Change will begin with an inspiration. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Montaigne wondered if he was playing with his cat, or if he was a toy to his cat. You may feel similarly toward a love interest today. It’s something to stay aware of as the week progresses. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Since it requires setting aside self-interest and being guided by curiosity, the person who really tries to get inside the head of another is few and far between. You do it so regularly you don’t even realize how special you are. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): To endear yourself to a mentor or to serve a potentially wonderful customer very well would be the very best use of your efforts today. With your natural charms, this shouldn’t be hard. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): How is needless fear and anxiety avoided? Scientists worldwide are paid ‘round the clock to sort this out, and yet the solution may be quite simple. Identify which fears are “needless” and focus elsewhere. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): To believe in the probability that something wonderful will happen is often the cause of something wonderful happening. And if you never lose that belief, then you can never be wholly disappointed.
