Organizing independent efforts is the main order of business early on, as the first part of the day is ruled by meticulous, organized Virgo. The progressing day will shift the focus to new interests and people. Libra lunar energies take hold to remind us that no one is truly alone — and besides, it’s more fun to work and play with a counterpart.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). An experiment isn’t just something you do; it’s also something you are. If you’re lucky, what you try will please you. But either way, your willingness to commit to uncertainty can only result in greater self-knowledge.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You refuse to let anyone else define you and you certainly won’t be limited by your self-definition, either. That’s just another opinion (even if it happens to be yours). In each moment you decide whom to be.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know that being able to grasp the psychology of another person is absolutely necessary if you’re to get that person’s quality attention and keep it for any amount of time. This will be your main study of the day.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Stifling your energies can cause illness and sadness. Express yourself! Get the frustration out of your system, but also let all that joy, curiosity and excitement take form.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Complaining is easy — all you have to do is point a finger and state what’s not working. Anyone can do that! You’ll differentiate yourself by making the more difficult choice to help, cooperate and make a change.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your habits aren’t you; they are just routines you’ve learned and repeated, routines that can be dropped, changed or replaced. You’re already thinking of dropping a habit you once mistook for your destiny.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sure, you’re capable of doing more — and so are most humans. We often don’t test the theory, though, until we’re pushed. That’s why an ambitious (or aggressive) Capricorn friend is invaluable now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you tell them exactly what to do, most of the people around you now will take the time to do it. But to you, love is not having to tell them. The one who moves on his or her own initiative has your heart!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The competition is on. It’s not official; nor is it organized. Perhaps the others involved don’t even realize they are in the game! Still, this is happening. Awareness is your winner’s advantage.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The crisis of faith or bout of skepticism you work your way through this morning will be completely gone in the afternoon light. Your goals are obtainable, your wishes favored for coming true.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Relax. You needn’t worry about what value you are adding to the situation. Everyone else is way beyond that now. They know that your value is inherent, and you need to start believing that, too.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re so observant and clever now that you could prove any point you want to make: true, worthy, accurate or not. Before you go to any trouble, make sure your stance is worth getting behind.
