It’s the home field advantage. Knowing the lay of the land allows for a more powerful positioning. People act with more confidence from the comfort of their own home, and so do planets. The sun opens the door to the Leo realm and feels suddenly bigger, brighter and hotter. Do you feel suddenly more like yourself, too?
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There are times when genuine outrage is warranted, but those times are few and far between. Mostly, there’s no good reason to get riled up. Keep your cool, and everyone around you will, too.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). For those planning a trip, ignore the rule about houseguests and fish at your own peril. No matter how charming and loved you are, anything still lingering after three days starts to smell.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some people believe other people’s lifestyles are somehow an affront to their own. It makes no sense to you — you’re a live-and-let-live sort. Let them argue it out while you’re busy making money today.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Usually when you reach the point of being irritated with absolutely everyone in the world, the one you’re really mad at is you. Your issue with yourself? You haven’t given yourself the much-needed break you deserve.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Too many ingredients spoil the soup — or the project, relationship, schedule, etc. Stick to the recipe. Great patience and restraint will be required for exemplary results.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Certain friends bring out your quick humor, and others make you feel like you’re always dodging conversational quicksand. Why put yourself in uncomfortable situations? Choose your company carefully.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As for that group of hotheads you have to operate in, sometimes you wonder how you landed in an environment so rich in narcissism and delusion. Your main goal will be not to become like them.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Before you invent a new way to get to the goal, give the old one a try. If it works, it will save you unnecessary effort. Your brain is best put to work on a problem that hasn’t been solved by anyone yet.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Manipulation is when you trick someone into wanting what you’d like them to want. It leads to nothing good. You want to influence others to be their best, but they have to want that, too.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This is a day when your body knows more than you do about what it needs. Listen to the muscles and appetites that live in you. Trust your physical instinct.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll have some explaining to do, not because your actions are so outside the norm, but because you’ll be dealing with people who simply don’t get what’s going on.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Today, the most effective solution will be so obvious that it’s easy to miss. That’s why the opinions of inexperienced people will be so valuable to you. The very young and the very old will be especially lucky to have on your side.
