PHOEBE AND HER UNICORN
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Few
things will be more persuasive
than a good story, especially if
you leave room for the audi-
ence to fill in some blanks, thus
becoming more involved. Tell
a story: win a sale, a friend or a
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You
don’t think of your work or rela-
tionships as a game, but there
are others more competitive at
heart who seem ever-aware of
the score. Knowing how they
think, you can avoid the distrac-
tion of unwanted competition.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Like
a buffet at a restaurant, the buf-
fet of life is at its finest with the
early crowd. There’s something
special brewing, something
worth getting in on now while
it’s fresh and new.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21). Universities often use their
graduate students as teachers for
the lower-level classes. In a sense,
all teachers are graduate stu-
dents — pupils further along the
path of learning. Today, will bring
a guided leap of knowledge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Sometimes you wonder if you
should care so much about the
look and feel of things, as your
discerning tastes can be difficult
to satisfy. Today, however, hold-
ing out for what you really want
will bring reward.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You
didn’t make them on purpose,
but you can still be proud of
those messes. Think of them as
the product of good living. Those
who are not making a mess are
probably not making anything.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Genuine
curiosity keeps the conversation
going. You sense the difference
between this real force of life
and the empty questions that
are imposters not even worth
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You
look up to the ones in a certain
group and the ones in the other
group look up to you. And so, the
wheel of social status uncomfort-
ably turns. You may feel driven to
break the wheel.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Oh,
happy day — you’ll get some of
what you want! To get some of
what you want is a blessing, a
boon and a benefit! To get ev-
erything you want is a curse that
stunts growth, spoils personality
and ruins potential.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
When you know you can do a
thing and be successful at it —
that’s confidence. You can be
confident about anything; you
just need to learn the thing. One
step at a time will get you there.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
The emotions live inside of you,
the circumstances live outside,
and diffusion has to happen for
you to move comfortably in the
outside realm. A little of what’s
out there has to mix with what’s
in you and vice versa for this to
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). To
stay present and in the moment,
the moment must interest you
more than your internal dialogue
does. Challenge yourself. Turn it
into a puzzle. The higher aware-
ness you gain will be worth it.
SUNDAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 28).
Certain dreams of your youth
have morphed into plans and ad-
ventures while others have been
stashed or even forgotten. One
will emerge this year for you to
flesh out in an unexpected way.
This idea that’s come full-circle
will connect you deeply with
friends and spark new relation-
ships, too. September brings
a windfall. Taurus and Gemini
adore you. Your lucky numbers
are: 20, 4, 44, 38 and 17.
