This is the optimal moment to make plans. You’ll be especially lucky with the ones that involve just you and your own daily habits and attitudes. The square between Mercury and Mars cautions against talking too much, reminding us that loose lips sink ships. It’s too easy to reveal secrets or accidentally offend. Stay mum and stay happy.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can’t finish absolutely everything you start. Some projects are meant to be abandoned midway. You learned from the experience, and that was the whole point. You can move on with your head held high.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Some say that love is the opposite of fear. However, it would be unwise to embrace an attacking bear. Sometimes the best way to love the “monster” is to respect it from a great distance without getting involved.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Following the route that makes the most
sense will not lead to a very interesting place. Creative choices will be radical ones. Align yourself with the wild at heart, which may include: Sagittarius, Aquarius and Pisces.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You like to be sold on an idea, though not through the hard-sell techniques that some will try on you today. You prefer the deal in question to be so irresistibly juicy that you can’t help but give in to it. Wait until such an offer appears.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are times to pursue great things and big plans, and there are times to savor moments so small, if you were to blink they would be gone. Today you’ll find the force of love in incremental passages.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Many agreeable notions will be presented. It feels wonderful to say yes often. You’ll pack more into this day than most people do in an entire week, and it won’t even take much effort.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You might
fall into a momentary bout of insecurity, but don’t stay there. You are special and you are loved. The evidence comes in many forms now, but you first have to believe the truth of the statement to see the proof.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You love what is sacred and also what is ordinary. You could interchange the two today as you realize the only thing that makes something sacred or ordinary is the quality of attention you give to it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are chosen for competition, though it was not your intention. This is an honor — an indication that others see you as a worthy opponent. You do not have to
compete, but do acknowledge the invitation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Small talk is important. Friendliness is the basis for so much good to come. And yet, as far as niceties go, you might be feeling temporarily tapped out. Take a social rest to rejuvenate.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Once you learn the finer points of a topic, you can’t very well unlearn them. You get a taste of the so-called “good life,” and it’s dangerously delightful. Now there’s no going back.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your work or a favorite hobby is endlessly fascinating to others. You’ll field interesting
questions on the topic. Answering them could enlighten both you and the person who asked.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 1). You are unique. To live in the manner that suits you best, you create your own special world. Your imaginative approach to daily life will breed huge personal success. Love fills your fall. The warmth and acceptance of a group of friends feels wonderful. There’s a windfall in February. Cancer and Aries people adore you. Lucky numbers are: 30, 22, 15, 4 and 27.
