TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 26): The dance of relationships is one of stepping back to get closer. Sagittarius and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 22, 5, 7 and 19.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Like an expert salesperson, you’ll focus on your hotprospects list and save time and energy by prioritizing your most likely customers.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The theme centers on the Latin prefix “re,” meaning “back” or “again.” Prepare for reunions, renovations, remixes and remodels. All things old will be new again.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): The question of standards will come up. You’ll set the bar. Look around; do your research; understand the full range of what’s possible, especially on the lower side.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): Though you can’t change history, you can change which parts of it you focus on, the way you tell it, and what it means to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Whoever obeys the gods, to him they particularly listen,” stated the Greek classic “The Iliad.” You’ll notice the same power dynamic on a smaller scale.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Those who appreciate gifts are given more of them. The opposite is also true. You’ll wisely temper your reaction to receive less of something you don’t want.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You’ll experience the need for harmony and beauty in your environment. This is typical for you, but it’s stronger and more urgent than usual today, likely causing you to purge the old and bring in the new.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’ll understand a situation that baffles the others. Explaining it is the hard part. Consider skipping that and just acting on your knowledge. They’ll catch up later.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The special fondness between you and your people gets the spotlight as you laugh and share stories, many retold for the 100th time. This is how a legacy gets cemented.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): To show up and handle responsibilities is the very least you’re willing to do for your loved ones. You’re proactive, thinking about the future and driving the action according to your vision.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your firsthand knowledge of the grind gives you a deep appreciation for the instances in which you are paid to do something you love. Such an exchange will happen today. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your diligence comes from strength, but if you appear to be working harder than anyone else, it will instead be interpreted as weakness.
