Horoscopes: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Stockpile your small achievements. They will amount to something meaningful and impressive. The addition of a new hobby or study will open the door to an entirely different social swirl.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Most people have an unkind self-definition lurking somewhere in the psyche to boot down to in moments of insecurity. When it happens, just know you're not alone, ignore the case of mistaken identity, and move along.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The people, things and situations that would be normally interesting to you are now more seductive than ever. Why? You'll go nearer to understand, but don't wander in too far.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've already done the work, but something more will be needed for this thing to fly. Being successful is about timing today. Get ready for your excellent timing to compound your good fortune.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Nothing bonds you with loved ones like a big project with an impossible timeline. Share the mission with any and all capable people around you. You'll have funny stories by the end of this quest.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Even though it's not healthy to bottle your feelings up, you don't want to express them in a way that's going to make your life difficult later. Do it clearly and briefly with as light a touch as you can manage and you should be good.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). All relationships take work, but should it really be unpleasant work? If it always seems to be, the true quality and nature of the relationship will come into question.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Of all the signs in the zodiac, you're the one who keeps secrets best and it doesn't even matter if it's someone else's or yours. You'll stay hushed and be met with rapt interest.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Those who think both the arm rests on a plane are for them are thinking neither socially nor mathematically. These are the types you'll deal deftly with today: harmless but clueless, possibly responsive to humor.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Today will offer a review on the topic of what is and is not your problem. Just because it's not your responsibility doesn't mean it's not your problem. If you can handle it quickly, do it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It will be relatively easy to give total acceptance to yourself and your loved ones today, which is no small thing. Consider building on this peace by widening your circle of compassion to a stranger, or even to an enemy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You've been humble and haven't touted your trophies and triumphs around town. Your prize is that you now get to work freely and quietly, liberated from the expectations of others.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 20). You'll put powerful energy into your projects but it won't feel like effort because you'll find the pursuits that speak directly to your mind and heart. And anyway, the energy comes back to you tenfold. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 31, 2, 28 and 14.
