Aries (March 21-April 19): The adage says loving does not require thought, only emotion. And yet the thoughts align like a magic combination to open the safe that holds those emotions.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your feelings are valid and important, though sometimes only to you.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): As a sign of honor and respect, hold back on telling others what to do unless it’s asked directly of you.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Do not try to leech anyone’s pain (or joy, for that matter): Feel only your own feelings.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22Dec. 21): To be craved is flattering; to be needed is validating. It’s better, however, just to be loved. Healthy relationships are built on intimacy and balance.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Other people could compliment you from here to tomorrow, but that doesn’t change how you see yourself. Your standards are high, and now you’ll work hard to meet them.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Many of your life rituals are not your own but have been handed down by society, religion, family and friends. It’s the rituals that you create or personalize that will bring meaning and significance to your life.
Today’s birthday (Aug. 4): You don’t have all the hard resources you need to bring your plan to life, but with moxie and determination you’ll make it happen anyway.

Your lucky numbers are: 9, 39, 22, 47 and 45.
