TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (June 29). You’re be­com­ing in­creas­ingly in­formed and in touch with your sur­round­ings and yet you’re not com­pletely tied to things as they ex­ist. Pa­ram­e­ters change. You’ll come into a brand new scene and al­ter it for­ever for the bet­ter. Af­fec­tion and de­vo­tion will be heaped on you in 2018. Travel fig­ures promi­nently. Sagittarius and Pisces adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 10, 3, 38, 34 and 40.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Bore­dom lacks the fiery pas­sion of other emo­tions, but it’s just as im­por­tant as many of those su­per­charged feel­ings. You won’t find your peak cre­ativ­ity, orig­i­nal­ity or unique ge­nius with­out tol­er­at­ing some de­gree of bore­dom.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You lived your story; you earned it! That doesn’t mean that you want to tell it to ev­ery­one. In fact, you’ll be ef­fec­tively choosey in this re­gard, wait­ing for the right au­di­ence and the mo­ments of max­i­mum im­pact.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Those who have earned big-time re­sults are the only ones who can af­ford to talk a big talk — though, usu­ally, be­cause ex­pe­ri­ence has taught them the pre­car­i­ous­ness of suc­cess and the value of mod­esty, they choose not to.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). Love the mess. Frame it as you would the art­work of a beloved young child. In many ways, you are the par­ent and the child all in one, and you’re in need of a lit­tle praise and en­thu­si­asm for the early at­tempts.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may feel like you’re be­ing put on the spot to­day. If so, con­sider mov­ing “the spot” off to the side a bit. The sideshow will at­tract a crowd with­out hav­ing the same pres­sures and li­a­bil­i­ties of the main stage pro­duc­tions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The na­ture of mar­ket­ing is hype. Since you’re be­ing mar­keted to dur­ing your ev­ery wak­ing hour, it only fol­lows to pick up and use lan­guage of hype in your you-to-you com­mu­ni­ca­tions. Rec­og­nize it for the ex­ag­ger­a­tion it is.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). True to his me­thod­i­cal, con­sis­tent na­ture, the tor­toise wins the race. Plod­ding ever for­ward is harder than it looks — es­pe­cially for those who are eas­ily dis­tracted (which is ev­ery­one) -- but it works. You can do this!

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In­stead of ru­mi­nat­ing about what went wrong back there, imag­ine that it didn’t. Think of your­self as say­ing and do­ing it the way you would have liked it to go. This in­creases your chances of get­ting it right the next time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you’re only part­way into the sit­u­a­tion, it will take en­ergy from the rest of your life and give you back noth­ing in re­turn. For a proper re­turn you’ll have to ramp up your com­mit­ment or get out com­pletely.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If there’s any­thing you need more of, it’s not money or fun, it’s mean­ing. When mean­ing­fully en­gaged you be­come more your­self and yet some­how si­mul­ta­ne­ously more ev­ery­one else, too, meld­ing with the univer­sal mind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Com­fort­able ideas about who you are will keep you in­ter­act­ing in a cer­tain way that may or may not ben­e­fit you, let alone keep you in­ter­ested in your­self. Trade com­fort for bold­ness, rou­tine for ad­ven­ture, worry for cu­rios­ity.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you laid down the bound­ary for your friend, you had a good rea­son. But the scene has changed and so have the both of you. It’s time for some new rules that bet­ter fit this cur­rent in­car­na­tion of the re­la­tion­ship.
