ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19): Insecurity can cause people to claim skills and competencies beyond what they’ve earned. Overlook these exaggerations and faults in the name of social grace.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20): You’re constantly challenging your own thinking along moral and ethical lines. What you consider to be a minimal act of kindness goes above and beyond what others would do.
GEMINI (May 21-Jun 21): You’ve been unaware of subtle pressures around you that were influencing you. But something happens today to wake you up and help you better understand the dynamics affecting you.
CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 22): You want to feel another person’s pain so they won’t have to. That’s not possible. But can they prove it? Your solution may be counterintuitive or illadvised, but it’s yours.
LEO (Jul 23-Aug 22): The thing has been broken for a while now. Still, there’s hope. Tinker. Keep jiggling the parts and poking around for the problem. You’ll hear the whir of this engine yet!
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): As soon as you think you can’t do a thing, you must embark. This isn’t really about proving yourself wrong. In fact, you may be quite right. Failure may be inevitable. Even so, who will you become by trying?
LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 23): Because you’re a hard worker, you sometimes work whether or not that’s what the situation needs. Today, there’s a chance that what’s really needed is more awareness, which can prevent wrong action.
SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 21): Conversational skill will have little to do with saying things the right way. Choose a relatable topic where interests are likely aligned and let that do the work for you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): You’ll pay more attention to your thoughts, partly because they are so loud today and opaquely colour your moods. Some of these thoughts need to be taken on, reasoned with and calmed down.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): Discipline is followthrough. Whether you are in charge of making the rules for children, employees or yourself, you have to follow through with what you said you’d do or it’s not going to work.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): Stress reduction starts with noticing the actualities of the moment. Thoughts are the biggest problem source. Culprits like, “This all has to be done immediately,” can be dismissed as untruths.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): You relax differently from those around you and that’s just the nature of relaxation. Even twins will have different ways of reaching calm. Ask yourself what you need, and then provide it.
