TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 1): You’re not fearless, but you take the risks necessary to go for the life you really want. Sagittarius and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 22, 10, 50 and 1.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): What people think they deserve is a tricky equation weighted by what they’ve had in the past, and what everyone around is getting. Don’t worry about it. Give equally.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Cleaning, going through old texts, emails and pictures and other ways of clearing the decks are favored today. You’ll be surprised by the memories that come up and by the feelings attached to them.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You don’t really have to develop your uniqueness so much as discover, understand and accept it. That’s why you need other people. Today, they’ll provide the contrast that helps you see yourself better.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): You’re not one person doing one thing. You’re a bundle. Everyone is a bundle. You’ll look at all your attached “items” and think of ways to make this bundle more enticing to everyone, especially you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your answer will not come from digging down into the question at hand. It’s something that has already worked in another area of life entirely or perhaps a different business or discipline.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Maturity has its ups and downs. You’ll walk a fine line between “older and wiser” and “tired and jaded.” Staying in the first category is a matter of good self-care including and especially sleep.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): It’s funny how you can like how a person looks, acts and talks and yet still not hit it off. Sometimes the opposite is true. You seem to click with someone who doesn’t represent your preferences at all. This is the power of chemistry.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’ve had the same goal for a while now and not attaining it is getting really old. So, what needs to change? It’s either the goal or the plan. An outsider’s view will help in the matter.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Most of the time unrealistic expectations cause disappointment. But an unrealistic expectation can also change everything. So don’t discount the power of dreaming the impossible dream.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Most people would rather hear praise than criticism, but not you. You understand the intrinsic value in complaint. You see the opportunity to get better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): For the longer journeys, it’s important to build in rest and recovery time as well as the introduction of novelty and, of course, adversity. If there’s an enemy to defeat, everyone will work harder.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s natural to move through various interests and projects on the way to finding your thing. For now, be more concerned with filling up your wells of inspiration than with sticking with one interest.
