Update: 8:43AM Like a restless audience waiting for the show to start, giddy anticipation precedes the solar change. Curtains open to the sun as a pioneer crossing into the wild frontier of Sagittarius. For many, this passage represents opportunity, excitement and expansion. Then, for extra luck, the new moon adds a dash of fresh hope to the mix.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you want to blame someone for emotional pain, a good place to start is your ego. Sure, it helps you operate in this world, but it's time to remind this lifelong friend that it's not the one in charge.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll receive signals about what's coming up next in your personal life, foreshadowing of an exciting chapter. You'll find guidance where you weren't expecting it -- from a competitor or even an enemy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are many social possibilities out there, so why not seek to build bonds with those who can respond to you in kind? Don't feed your love, attention and energy into the relationship equivalent of a black hole.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Practice what you'll say when they ask you about yourself. You don't have to stick to the facts and be serious about it. You're allowed to be mysterious or, even better, to deflect the question back to the querent.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Feeling good about what you are doing gives you power. If you don't feel good, take a step back and figure out why. You can fix this, and it's worth it to try, even if it entails a confrontation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). While others enjoy their leisure, you'll have your hands in a hefty pile of work. It's not that you didn't plan well. It's that you recognize today as an opportunity to get ahead, which makes you happier than a round of golf and the like.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some of what you were taught is just plain wrong -- you can see that now. You're not sure what the correct way is, but you'll find it. Forgive them and seek a new model.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You can't care about something you don't understand. Instead of trying to force yourself to care when you don't, seek understanding and go from there.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). So what if you've been practicing for years? The fact is, you're still learning, and you're anything but jaded. Today you feel like a wide-eyed student, ready to glean fresh insights.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The person who stops to smell the flowers is one who honors and appreciates life, but not quite as much as the person who stops to plant the flowers.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll look for the moral of the story and find it. You'll draw conclusions, and they'll turn out to be correct. You'll distill information to its essence and respond to the bottom line.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The lending of personal property is equivalent to the losing of it. If you feel inclined to share, give it away. Otherwise, hold tight to what's yours -- claim, cherish and maintain it.
