ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's wise to look for the upside of a situation, especially if it's a bad situation. You recognize the downside, of course, but it would be pointless to dwell there.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today, ignorance will not be bliss. It will be something more akin to apathy. You will be happier seeking knowledge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If your eyes were sun lamps, you'd be giving a certain someone a face tan. The exchange of extra attention will be good for both of you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Sleep is underrated. It's a healer and a spiritual tool. It's a teleportation system, an entertainment system, a protection system and an energetic restoration system. Bottom line: Get more sleep.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). At the point of an important decision, you may be worried you'll do something you'll regret. Don't. People usually don't regret their mistakes. They regret their missed opportunities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Someone is hiding true feelings from you, probably afraid of being an inconvenience. But convenience isn't everything. Make your caring heart known.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you could fix what another person is going through, you would. It's painful to watch without being able to do something. Getting involved means crossing a line-not always a bad thing, but worthy of careful deliberation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are those who won't be able to keep up with you, and you'll have to find a workaround. Not everyone has to get there at the same time, but stay hopeful that all will get there eventually.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People are good at different things. You may look at the next guy and wonder how he does it, but you can bet that in a different category, others think the same thing about you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You feel it's time to prove your worth to your boss or loved one. The trouble is, you have to believe it, or it's not going to work. Furthermore, once you believe it, proving it to others will be a moot point.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Before you embark on a project, ask yourself: Who would be the most fun person to do this with? Then ask: Who has the expertise I most need? The right person will bring both levity and serious skills to the table.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Complaining is a favorite pastime for the modern human ... or maybe it's more of a disease. While it's important to note the problem, to stop there would be folly and weakness. It's why you take action today.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 3). You're decisive, tenacious and very aware of opportunities, especially the ones others overlook. This will land you in a prime position over the next six weeks. Your ideas catch on. This translates into money in your pocket. Travels with loved ones are tinged with all kinds of luck. New people come into your life in May. Aries and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 6, 44, 49 and 12.
