Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINM­ENT -

Aries (March 21-April 19): Defin­ing your bound­aries is eas­ier once you match your pri­or­i­ties with your ac­tual de­sires. Thank­fully, you can work as hard as you want to align with your pref­er­ences once you’re in touch with your in­ter­nal land­scape. Re­lax and ac­cept your path af­ter you make your choice.

Tau­rus (April 20-May 20): You take pride in know­ing the ba­sics. It might not even mat­ter to you that oth­ers see you as an ex­pert in the field if you feel like an im­pos­tor. How­ever, the truth is, find­ing out there’s more to learn is a bless­ing since you’ll have more room for growth.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 20): In­stead of sum­mon­ing a tidal wave of emo­tion that over­whelms your clear judg­ment, trust that your doubts will sub­side if you re­move thoughts about your in­ad­e­qua­cies or fail­ures. The so­lu­tion is much sim­pler than it seems. Stay strong, stay pos­i­tive and don’t give up.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22): You are more con­vinc­ing when you speak from your heart in­stead of just rat­tling off facts and fig­ures. Ask ques­tions rather than re­ly­ing on per­sonal in­sight. Blend­ing the art of diplo­macy with the art of per­sua­sion en­ables you to paint a pic­ture of sin­cere con­vic­tion.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Tak­ing stock of your strengths gives you some­thing to build on. Oth­ers prob­a­bly per­ceive your as­sets bet­ter than you do. The most prac­ti­cal ap­proach begins with a care­ful as­sess­ment of your skills and re­sources. How­ever, re­gard­less of the size of your wal­let, in­tegrity is the heart of your char­ac­ter.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Per­sis­tence works in your fa­vor to­day. You may even ques­tion your progress as your con­fi­dence wanes. Don’t try to si­lence your doubts, since they hold the key to self-im­prove­ment. Your com­mit­ment keeps you mov­ing un­til you even­tu­ally es­tab­lish a con­sis­tent rhythm.

Li­bra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your at­ti­tude is ev­ery­thing when the cur­tain goes up and your tal­ent is on dis­play for all to see. The truth is, even the most sea­soned per­form­ers get ner­vous be­fore they be­gin. Proper preparatio­n pre­vents poor per­for­mance. Your star is on the rise.

Scor­pio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Treat­ing peo­ple the way you wish to be treated is vital to your emo­tional sat­is­fac­tion. It’s likely that you set the bar of ex­pec­ta­tions so high that no one could pass your in­tense ex­am­i­na­tion. For­tu­nately, pri­or­i­tiz­ing com­pas­sion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion em­pow­ers oth­ers to be their best selves.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Give peo­ple a sec­ond look be­fore making your first im­pres­sion. Know­ing when to cut oth­ers some slack can add sun­shine to a po­ten­tially dark in­ter­ac­tion. Ease off the crit­i­cism, and add some cu­rios­ity and hu­mor. Af­ter all, be­ing hu­man is a tem­po­rary state of be­ing.

Capri­corn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Break­ing down a large project into man­age­able steps is your se­cret to suc­cess. You are ready for the most com­plex is­sues be­cause your prag­ma­tism blazes trails. Con­gress­man Frank A. Clark wrote, “If you find a path with no ob­sta­cles, it prob­a­bly doesn’t lead any­where.”

Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Tak­ing proac­tive mea­sures pre­vents fu­ture loss. Rather than idly hop­ing noth­ing will go wrong now, trou­bleshoot for po­ten­tial mishaps and place your keys, phone and wal­let in a safe spot. Ben­jamin Franklin wrote, “An ounce of pre­ven­tion is worth a pound of cure.”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Iron­i­cally, you don’t need to have all the an­swers to­day, be­cause your imag­i­na­tion and in­tu­ition in­spire oth­ers to get busy search­ing for solutions. Although it re­quires trust, your mo­men­tum will carve out a path for you and your pack to fol­low. Some­times, the hard­est part is tak­ing the first step.
