In an uncertain world, the worst approach one could take is absolute certainty. The trick is to appear confident and yet also be ready to switch gears in an instant. As the moon slips into the sign of the ultra-flexible fish, the winning approach involves being as fluid as the water, flowing with the tides.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The social scientists suggest that the most important (and telling) part of a conversation is the start of it. As the sign of beginnings, you get this intuitively and lead with the intention of making something positive happen.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The less you own, the less you are owned. There was a time when these symbols meant much more to you; but now that they don’t, the thing to do is to take the cash value.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be somewhat impervious to what others are reacting to. It’s not that you’re unfeeling; rather, you are protected by your broader point of view. Seeing the big picture minimizes the impact of circumstantial pettiness.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). One would think that extremely valuable things would be constantly guarded against theft, loss or damage, and yet it’s not always so. People lose valuables all of the time. This is no time to take for granted what you hold dear.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Today’s success secret is a no-brainer. You’ll seek out and study those who live the way you want to live. Furthermore, though it won’t happen overnight, eventually you will become one of them.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll focus on what’s good and ask the same of others. This will not be accomplished overtly, which would only be annoying. The positivity is an extension of how you are, your general personality and approach.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Deep down, you know what you want. Press yourself! It’s a good thing to figure out early in the day, because you could waste a lot of time with vague actions. Have the confidence to be specific and direct.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). On the surface there’s not a lot of difference between going with the flow and conforming like a chameleon. The difference is on the inside. Don’t fool yourself. Make strategic compromises — external, not internal.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re a helper. Also, you’ve the experience to easily solve many problems. However, refrain from giving advice or solutions until and unless you are asked. No one likes to be told what they (SET ITAL)should(END ITAL) be doing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Should you avoid or embrace conflict? Much depends on motive. If you’re avoiding conflict to be liked, the plan will backfire. If you’re avoiding it to be peaceful, the moral high ground will be your paradise.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Many believers in angels and spirit guides suggest that these ethereal entities communicate with us through feelings. Today it will seem that your intuition, or some extra-sensory stimulus, is trying to tell you something.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Whether it seems to be going very right, or very wrong, you’ll be cool with it. These things have a way of stabilizing. The midpoint is called that for a reason. Everything settles there eventually.
