ARIES (March 21-April 19). You
need feedback. Without it, you
won’t know how your work and
general personality are landing
with other people. More impor-
tantly, you won’t know what kind
of people you’re dealing with.
Ask for a response.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your
sign is keenly aware of the risks
involved in taking a bull by the
horns — not advisable today.
To control beastliness, use the
power of the herd. Wild instincts
are quelled in a natural social
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your
feeling that someone is showing
you a carefully controlled version
of his or her image is correct. You
could be flattered by this, and yet
it’s still important that you get a
truer perspective on who you’re
dealing with.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
What you thought would please
you turned out to be different
than expected. Now you know
more, perhaps most valuably that
happiness is a byproduct, not an
end product.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). An
exchange will happen. You won’t
have to give up what you want to
keep, but you just might find that
“keeping” isn’t so important to
you anymore. Ownership can be
a lot of work.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Sometimes people say the wrong
thing accidentally or out of social
awkwardness and/or personal
baggage that disallows them
to see the wonder and value in
things. Your grace will smooth it
over and make you the winner.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).
Conflict, tension and surprise
aren’t just essential elements of
drama; they’re needed in real life,
too. The safe, nice and appropri-
ate route should work; it won’t,
because it won’t attract and hold
people’s interest.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The
loudest one is not the most pow-
erful one. Talking the most actu-
ally puts a person at a disadvan-
tage. Power comes from knowing
what others want, which requires
listening well. Listening is the
power move.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Regulating one’s own emotions
comes more easily to those who
aren’t having a lot of strong
emotions. It is no more admirable
to regulate mild emotions than
it is to succumb to overpowering
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
There is a primal beat inside
you, barely detectable when
you’re immersed in the hum of
the modern world, though once
you’re in the wilderness (actually
or metaphorically) it syncs with
all that is.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
The comedians know that most
times it’s better not to try to be
funny at all. The business success-
es know that making a buck isn’t
the bottom line. You will follow
your own seemingly contradicto-
ry rules for today’s win.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The
thrill of victory is like a special
sauce. Once you taste it, you
want to see how it pairs with
everything you eat. Even the best
sauce doesn’t go with everything.
Sometimes losing is the best win.
15). You feel your feelings, under-
stand your needs and develop
strategies for getting those needs
met that do not require other
people to be or behave different-
ly. That last part represents your
real freedom this year. A profes-
sional breakthrough occurs in
October. The year-end sees you
leading a troupe. Sagittarius and
Capricorn adore you. Your lucky
numbers are: 11, 37, 2, 24 and 16.
