ARIES (March 21-April 19).
When to speak and when the unspoken says more; when to open and when to close the door; when rhyming’s good and when to make the words not sound alike at all: You’ll sense these things and more today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
It’s the same with the peacocks and the toads and the pufferfish, this instinct to make yourself bigger to discourage those who threaten you and encourage those you desire. It doesn’t work every day, but today it will.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
You’ve told this story before, and you didn’t like how it played. Don’t blame yourself. It’s not the story. It’s yours, and it’s good. It just needs some tweaking. Answer this: What do you want them to feel at the end?
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
When you really give it thought, you despise the idea that so many are rallying behind. You can’t take on every injustice, but this accepted part of the backdrop is now bothering you too much for you to remain passive.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
You’re optimistic. You don’t want to hear sad stories — i.e., any story you can’t do anything about. However, avoid trying to turn the story around. Don’t twist it into taffy or spin it into cotton candy. Leave it be.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Destruction is a positive force for you today. You’ll tear down the fixture that is causing you stress and build in its place something functional, lovely and reflective of the real you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).
Everyone is promoting an agenda. Most are doing so unconsciously. Here’s where you’ll have an edge today. Promote consciously, no apologies. You can feel good about going for what you want.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
There’s a clown in every class. You’re it today — the one who makes people laugh and smile with a much-needed disruption. Of course, half the grace of clowning is knowing when to get off the joke.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).
Love takes on many forms. Sometimes love looks like people debating, competing or ignoring one another, as offering comment, opposition or space can be an extremely loving act.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).
You’re still forming a habit and it’s still hard, but don’t worry. It will be hard tomorrow and the next day, too. One day you’ll wake up and it won’t be hard anymore. It will just be who you are.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).
Your enthusiasm for life will attract different responses from different people. Some may go mild, or laugh, or walk away. Others may finance your dreams.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
You should be the one to organize the gathering. Along with your common-sense approach to socializing, you have an added psychic sense that makes your invite list a perfect mix.
