Horoscopes: Wednesday, February 21, 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You tend to put pressure on yourself. Some of it is absolutely what you need to succeed; some of it is totally unnecessary. You'll figure out the difference.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are three kinds of luck: the kind you are born into, the kind you stumble into, and the kind you make. You can control only the last kind. And you will! GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Happiness doesn't always make you smile. Sometimes it makes you holler, sometimes it makes you cry, and sometimes it dumbfounds you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You figure out that you don't need as much as you thought you would, so you can let go and watch your energy level rise. Also, your connection with a fire sign will raise your energy.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Thinking back to your behavior from your younger days will make you cringe. Years from now, you'll cringe about something you did yesterday. But it's all growth. Stay light, laugh, and keep going.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Friends and stories will be the great treasure of your day. You'll be surprised by what some people remember about your times together and this will add to your own recollections.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Time can be a bully, but bullies can be stopped. Stand up to time - show it who's boss. Take control of your schedule by filling it with what you want to do instead of reacting to demands.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You know when people say they're ready, but then it turns out that they're not ? It irritates you so much that you'll take extra measures today just to make sure you're not "that person."

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Sometimes the conditions are perfect for slipping into a sweet spot of productivity. Then there are days like today, when you have to practically bribe yourself to get your head in the game. Hey - that's not a bad idea!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You've seen how apparently trivial events can have disproportionately influential consequences. Today will present another instance of this, though it will take months to detect.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're really not sure where the next lucky break is coming from - the last one was so long ago that you're starting to forget it. This is a fine time to arrange for yourself to be in as many potential hot spots as you can foresee.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There's a point in which trying too hard to change a negative behavior becomes an even more negative behavior. Obsessing over improvement is not improvement. Try acceptance.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 21). You have changed your definition of success. Because of this, the wins you create this solar return will favorably affect more people than ever before. Your investment in learning will transform your work picture. A faithful companion is along for the adventure come June. November brings domestic improvements. Libra and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 30, 2, 28 and 10.
