TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (April 18). Mother Teresa sug­gested, “Joy is prayer. … Joy is love. Joy is a net of love in which you can catch souls.” This year il­lus­trates the point, as you do “happy” like it was your birthright and oth­ers get caught up in your hap­pi­ness -- one spe­cial per­son most no­tably. July brings a con­tract. There’s a wind­fall in Oc­to­ber. Aries and Virgo adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 4, 39, 33, 17 and 24.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The strug­gle con­tin­ues be­tween your ra­tio­nal abil­ity to see the fu­ture and un­der­stand the value of goals and hard work and that fun-mon­key in you seek­ing grat­i­fi­ca­tion of a more in­stan­ta­neous va­ri­ety.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The trick is to ac­knowl­edge the other’s traits and foibles with­out in­dulging them. It takes a light touch and a flex­i­ble but firm so­cial bound­ary. The re­ward is a sense of con­nec­tion with­out the code­pen­dence.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As to­day’s con­ver­sa­tion gets heated, you’ll draw from your ever-grow­ing in­for­ma­tion banks for in­ter­est­ing con­tri­bu­tions. It’s your con­ge­nial at­ti­tude they’ll re­mem­ber.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). Many things will go as planned to sat­isfy your need for or­der and con­trol. And some things will not. It’s more fun when things don’t go as ex­pected. It gives you an ex­cuse to in­ter­act in ways you might not have had to.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Old bag­gage will get left on the road­side of the high­way of love. Good rid­dance. Re­la­tion­ships will lighten up, cruise along and gain a real sense of progress and free­dom.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The process is the goal, re­ally. And yet, with­out a stated goal, there is no process. This will all be a moot point as you fol­low your nat­u­ral in­stincts to­day.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re fa­mous for your diplomacy, lovely man­ners and ever-con­sid­er­ate ways. You’ll once again be the glue that brings peo­ple to­gether to­day, and, like a clear-dry­ing glue, your ef­forts will be in­vis­i­ble, the re­sults un­cred­ited.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Be­cause you are not re­liant on feed­back, you don’t ask for it. And yet, you need it now. Your suc­cess will de­pend on get­ting in touch with your au­di­ence, read­ing the room and find­ing the right kinds of rooms to be­gin with.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Un­less you’re a world leader or you’ve been placed in charge of the liveli­hood and fu­ture of a great num­ber of peo­ple, avoid overly se­ri­ous con­ver­sa­tion to­day. Truly, such grave talk will ben­e­fit no one.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you can af­ford to ig­nore the prob­lem, you’re rich. But if you can’t, you’ll wind up more ca­pa­ble, less afraid and more con­fi­dent in your abil­ity to han­dle and solve things.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re not look­ing to sur­round your­self with per­fect peo­ple; the showoffs and know-it-alls bore you. You want a sin­cere con­nec­tion with a flawed, com­pas­sion­ate, au­then­tic in­di­vid­ual.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There will be plenty of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the work you’ve done. New peo­ple want you to cre­ate sim­i­lar re­sults for them, and they’ll of­fer to hire you, con­sult with you or be your ap­pren­tice.
