TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Mar. 17). You’ll be surprised and inspired. You’ll make the first move often this year and the second one, too—then the universe answers with move #3 and soon all the world seems to be moving either for you or out of your way. The road forks in May. Money comes in lump sums in August and October. Aquarius and Libra adore you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Matters of scale will affect the social swirl. What seems to you to be a small effort could be quite large in the mind of one who endeavored it. Measure not with rulers and scales but with social awareness.

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). There are so many reasons to spend time with the people who make you laugh. First of all, it’s more fun. Secondly, you’ll get the added benefit of sharpening your own sense of humor, which helps many areas of your life.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). You’ve been given the raw goods but not much in the way of instruction. That’s fine. It’s actually better this way. You’ll build it into something that’s all yours and utterly different from what others expected.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Parents fully appreciate what it takes to get other (sometimes unwilling) people dressed, ready and where they need to be at the expected time. You’ll have a similar responsibility today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everyone gets lost. This is especially easy to do today regarding the seemingly minor matters of good taste. If you’re attracted to something and you love it, it can’t be all bad. And maybe it’s very right. Start there.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Life is complicated enough without any help from an overactive mind and imagination. When you feel yourself edging toward unnecessary “what if” scenarios, stop before you start. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is very important to obey your thirst. The scientists suggest that by the time you realize you are thirsty and go searching for water you are already dehydrated. The same goes for your thirst for certain kinds of attention.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The others may believe that a mystical and elusive force is at your command, but the reality is that you have purposefully trained to increase your capacity to produce brilliant results.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Solitude is not necessarily isolation. Just because you want to be alone doesn’t mean you “are”alone. Your favorite people will be the ones who understand and honor your need for peace and quiet, which is intensified now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In musical terms, when two unharmonious notes are played together and cause tension that goes unresolved, it’s called “dissonance.” Today it happens in nonmusical areas, too, intensifying a craving for resolution.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don’t take your senses for granted, as exploring the textures and processes of life will amplify your joy. And if there’s a part of your everyday world that’s an eyesore, this is the day to handle it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In order to accomplish a lofty aim, you’ll need to solve a problem not just once but perpetually. This will take stamina. There are a few habits and structures in your life that could be fine-tuned to accommodate the goal.
