Venus and Saturn are injecting realism into relationships: (SET ITAL) If you’re only in it because you don’t know how to get out of it, then you’re not really in it. (END ITAL) The Capricorn moon chimes in: (SET ITAL) If you’re being forced to play a game, then you’re not really playing and it’s not really a game. (END ITAL) So break free! Live your life your way to whatever extent you can.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can have creative insights anywhere, but you’re going to have more of them in a brand-new environment, particularly one in which you feel somewhat (but not too) relaxed.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don’t be too quick to sum up the people and situations you encounter. The trouble with putting things into strict categories is that those boxes will focus you in such a way as to miss the interplay among things.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ve been unaware of the subtle pressures around you that were influencing you to be one way and not another. But something happens today to wake you up and help you better understand the dynamics affecting you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). What brings out your exceptional qualities? A demand for them. Therefore, you don’t mind the problems that come up today, because they are a chance to rise up and hone the best parts of you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll figure out how to help another person get past a hurdle, make an improvement or think of the problem differently. This is no small win. The success of others will be your success.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Wearing shoes indoors is acceptable or unacceptable, depending on whose house you’re in. Neither is more correct, as it’s a matter of personal preference. Other matters of personal preference will influence today’s proceedings.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The new people around you have something to do with a shift in your thoughts and emotions. You’re the one who gets to decide whether this shift is something you’d like to explore further or not.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your ability to accept, support, care for and love yourself is increasing, and you like how your life is going as a result of this. You’re ready to get radically honest on a you-to-you basis.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Ideally, you could shed the past like a snake shedding its skin, because wearing the past is just dulling the vibrancy of the emerging you. You’re so clever; you can find a way to fold up the story and compartmentalize it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’re playful, fun, energetic and curious. Your mood is perfect for making new friends. Seeing as they don’t know you, you can be anyone you want to be. Sweet liberation.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll get the chance to observe possible candidates for your friendship. Take in all that you see. There are many things that can affect a person’s loyalty, and opportunity should be one of them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You can’t see your own attractiveness in action, and you never know exactly what it is about you that’s working for another person, but you can be sure that it is; the response you get now is proof of this.
