TO­DAY’S BIRTH­DAY (May 21). You in­clude new peo­ple in your de­ci­sions this year, just to keep things play­ful, in­ter­est­ing and ex­cit­ing. There’s a twist in July that will fa­vor you tremen­dously, but this will be hard to see in the early stages, so have faith. Your strength attracts other strong peo­ple, and to­gether you’ll ac­com­plish im­pres­sive feats. Pisces and Virgo adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 9, 40, 33, 28 and 4.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Pref­er­ences don’t au­to­mat­i­cally make a thing su­pe­rior or in­fe­rior. A bet­ter fit doesn’t mean a thing is ob­jec­tively a bet­ter

item; it’s just a bet­ter item for the per­son it fits.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sto­ries have big power, but only if they are be­lieved. If they are told well, they of­ten are be­lieved whether or not they are true. That’s why it’s im­por­tant to ask, “Who stands to gain from this?” about ev­ery story you hear.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 21). This is the kind of day when “just do it” ap­plies best. If you’re rea­son­ably sure the ac­tion will ben­e­fit all (or at least that it will harm none) go ahead. If you waste time ex­plain­ing or ask­ing per­mis­sion, you’ll miss your chance.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). Would you rather learn from ex­pe­ri­ence or gain from ex­pe­ri­ence? It’s a trick

ques­tion. To learn is to gain. And when you ap­ply the learn­ing, you’ll find it’s worth more than gold.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Be­cause you ex­pect more of your­self than most peo­ple do, it some­times feels like you’re fail­ing on a larger scale. But you’re much fur­ther along than you would be had you not taken on such a big chal­lenge. Cut your­self some slack.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In the­ory, you can work on your in­ner life through meditation, read­ing, self­less ser­vice and ed­u­ca­tion. Would it sur­prise you if en­joy­ment, plea­sure and self-in­ter­est also lead to men­tal im­prove­ment? LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The helium of emo­tion is so weight­less you’re not even aware you’re car­ry­ing it around with you. And yet, when you en­counter those who need your com­pas­sion, you have plenty to give.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There have been times in your life when you were un­happy but couldn’t pinpoint the source. To­day will bring the op­po­site ex­pe­ri­ence. Where is this hap­pi­ness com­ing from? Don’t ask. Just go with it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).

The com­pany you keep will not only af­fect the out­come of your projects to­day, it will also change you at your core. Happy, sup­port­ive peo­ple will re­mind you to smile and ac­cept your­self. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).

A change of venue can make a big difference to your pro­duc­tiv­ity. Maybe you can’t cut out dis­trac­tions, but be­ing around a dif­fer­ent set of them will work, too. Test this the­ory. Take your work on the road, or take it home.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You want to be wel­com­ing and open, but then again, there’s some­thing to be said for mak­ing peo­ple work for it. Your at­ten­tion is worth work­ing for, af­ter all, and they will to­day.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re not driven by other peo­ple’s opin­ions. It’s your own story that drives you. You want that nar­ra­tive to be great, and its great­ness doesn’t de­pend on the com­ple­tion, only on your own abil­ity to rise.
