There are two kinds of games: determinate games and indeterminate games.
In determinate games, such as chess, the starting player can win if she knows the strategy. In indeterminate games, two perfect players could play on forever. Before Venus turns retrograde, forget about winning or losing. Play your love life like an indeterminate game.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). It hurts you that you do not possess the magic wand to make your wish happen today, but don’t worry. You will accomplish through perseverance what you couldn’t make happen through power.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The spirit of play is awakening inside you. There are certain people who bring it out more than others. The right playmates help you keep your buoyant energy throughout the day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re in the mood to rock the boat. This makes things more interesting. The question: How hard should you rock it? The answer: Hard enough to move it, but not so hard that people will tumble out.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). As you lose yourself in the activity that draws up your passion, there will be no wondering about whether you’re doing it right or worrying about how you’ll be received when you’re done.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Don’t let financial issues throw you off balance. Your current paycheck is merely an income channel, not the source of abundance, which is the universe itself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Usually love is a priority, but today isn’t the usual kind of day. Romance may seem an unwelcome distraction, even a hindrance to your quest to better yourself. Paradoxically, this makes you all the more attractive.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In your current state of ultra-efficiency, there are a few things that will bother you: people who amble, dawdle or have a generally cavalier attitude about time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). That you feel so deeply is an asset in many situations; however, today’s situation presents an exception. The more emotionally removed you are from a conflict the stronger your position will be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be drawn to those who have a mind as flexible as yours. Bonus: You’re also open-minded enough to realize that close-minded people have something to teach you, too.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re all on the same team, though it won’t appear that way at first. Let the others know that when you win, they win. Your sense of humor will help to resolve any issues.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As a rule, you’d prefer that people not make a fuss over you. It’s embarrassing! If they have to do it (and today they probably do), grin, bear it and say thanks.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Friends don’t see you as you see yourself. They may have a point. Even though you tend to think of yourself in a certain light, stay open to other lighting schemes, too.
