TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (Aug. 3). This so­lar re­turn sees you be­come a mas­ter. The tal­ent that’s nec­es­sary to be a mas­ter is one of at­trac­tion. The mas­ter is more at­tracted to the sub­ject than oth­ers and is thus will­ing to try harder, make more at­tempts and ex­pe­ri­ence more fail­ures. The way to mastery is per­sis­tence. Virgo and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 9, 22, 28, 31 and 18.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your strengths are pow­er­ful, so don’t ob­sess over your weak­nesses. Man­age them in­stead. Find a work­around for what­ever gets in the way of your ex­cel­lence. Your tra­jec­tory will be a slow up­ward climb.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re highly mo­ti­vated by the in­trin­sic sat­is­fac­tion of ac­com­plish­ing your work, and the an­cil­lary prizes, while in­ter­est­ing, have lit­tle to do with that drive of yours. You’re an emo­tional as­set to the group and a mon­ey­maker too.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). So you’ve killed a few plants. That doesn’t make you a plant killer. There are those who think in ex­tremes. Think more rea­son­able than they. One ex­am­ple is never a big enough sam­ple pool to make a rule out of.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). What do you do when the cream of the crop turns out to be skimmed milk? Just keep cook­ing. Any­way, this no-frills ver­sion of the recipe will be a lot health­ier for you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you put more ef­fort into cre­at­ing and nur­tur­ing a re­la­tion­ship, love will be abun­dantly (but per­haps not im­me­di­ately) there for you. These things take time to grow.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Peo­ple want the in­side story from you, if you’re will­ing to share it. Your per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence is much more valu­able than any­thing that can be looked up on the in­ter­net.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You see how beau­ti­ful peo­ple are when they can­not seem to see it in them­selves. Your role will be to give them a clue but not to try and con­vince them. That won’t work. Peo­ple have to go at their own pace.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you get what you’re pur­su­ing you’re go­ing to feel the same way about your­self as you do now. This is why it’s im­por­tant to get on great terms with your­self. Check in. What would im­prove the you-to-you re­la­tion­ship to­day?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your ideas about who you are and where you’re go­ing will be con­sis­tently in line with the group’s. There’s a shared set of val­ues here, along with com­mon goals and sim­i­lar meth­ods for get­ting there. You’ll get there to­gether.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you’re giv­ing love that can’t be felt and is in­stead turned back on you, this is not your fault. Those who do not love them­selves will find some­thing wrong with any­one who loves them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s a day to set per­sonal bound­aries, if only to prove that you can. With­out bound­aries you’ll agree to do things that you don’t want to do and then be un­hap­pily look­ing for op­por­tu­ni­ties to get back at the one who “put” you in that po­si­tion.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If it doesn’t have the po­ten­tial for a lit­tle pain, it’s not re­ally a risk. But no risk means no thrill. Any­way, you’d much rather do some­thing new and mess it up than re­peat part of the mildly sat­is­fy­ing past.
