ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll contribute your ideas to the group and you'll start conversations that you and others will be talking about in the months to come. There's something important being worked out each time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll hear the best that others have to say because you're open to believing there's value in it. The add-ons or mistakes are the gems of communication.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The old

social patterns are getting slightly stodgy. You're in need of fresh energy and this could come in the form of a person. Break the ice. Someone has to be the first to say hello; it's you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The thing that's keeping you from what you really want is a pretty close version to what you want. In school that would be a C-. Is it good enough?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There's nothing you want more today than for your nearest and dearest to have a good time. Your primary concern will be making this happen. Set the stage, and then get out of the way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Respect where you've been and what you know; set a limit to what you're willing to accept from others. If you don't lay boundaries, you'll be insulting your own experience.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The saying "All's fair in love and war" is at best confusing and at worst untrue. Clearly there's plenty unfair about both.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There may be mightier vessels on the sea, but it's not always wise to jump ship for the chance to get there faster. The sea is unpredictable.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This is a time to cultivate restraint. Words can break hearts and actions can do worse. Kindness heals.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There's a diverse group around you. Much will be accomplished with everyone bringing the things they do well to the table.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you're not completely sure what move to make next, think in terms of attraction. Which move will get the kind of attention you want?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Starting fresh is super-difficult to do if nothing about the environment is different. Change is much easier in a fresh place. If you can't go to a new scene, give your current one a makeover.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 25). You get fantastic results as a leader who asks people to do their best. You're not looking for perfection, just for honesty and solid efforts. You'll be overjoyed with the spoils in August. Make a tidy arrangement in November; more rewards come in February. Diversify your interests and change up your crew in 2018. Capricorn & Virgo adore you. Lucky numbers: 9, 16, 5, 40, 28.
