ARIES (March 21-April 19). A peaceful, quietly powerful frame of mind will allow you to control what you can and ignore the rest. It's a brief and fleeting state for sure, but take these kinds of lucky breaks as they come.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You envy people who have the luxury of following their whims. It takes free time and disposable income. You could make more of those things if only you had the luxury. Today - a lucky break. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Be proactive as you look ahead. Block out chunks of time in thee next few weeks to dedicate to what you want to do. If you don't, your time will be booked up with what you're only mildly into.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The scientists suggest that the secret to science is asking the right question. Of course, this is the secret to everything. Start with what's relevant and expand to what covers more than that.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The situation seems a little boring, but there's something important happening here. If you don't tune in, you'll miss it and waste time going back to pick up what you missed. Awareness now will prevent problems later.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Fear, channeled well, is better than coffee at keeping you alert and focused. Fear will elasticize time for you. You'll experience the power of nanoseconds! Your performance will be better for it.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Coming up with a good plan means recognizing a bad one. You may blow through hours making plots that fill the wastebasket but it's nothing compared to what you'd waste following a bad plan. Back to the drawing board.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's not foresight or hindsight but insight that will serve you best. Examine your reactions - how you're interpreting this and what meaning you're assigning to it. Insight is the easiest kind to change.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This is an ideal time to clear the air and balance unbalanced relationships. Listen to what's said - and even more important, to what's not being said.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People often believe what their friends tell them over what the experts say. Ultimately, though, people believe what they tell themselves. The truth will matter less to people than the source.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Irresistible things are not rational things. They tug at a part of the mind and spirit where logic has never stepped - where magic and memories defy the rules of economics and commerce.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There will be attention-stealers out there - marketers, companies, and people who want your focus, but will not repay you for it. Stay self-directed.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 4). Heart connections drive the action this year. Changing one habit will lead to favorable results in many areas of life. Your reach broadens through efforts of the next five weeks. You could take your work international, add many new friends to your life, or touch people far away with your message. Taurus and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 12, 3, 30, and 17.
