Horoscopes: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2018

ARIES (March 21-April 19). People are so complex that they often don't even know their own reasons for taking a certain action. Introspection only captures but the tiny fraction of a thought process. Go easy on yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you haven't decided what goals to set for yourself, don't rush. Your sincere desire to be useful and helpful will propel you forward better than any other ambition would.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll be

reassessing what matters to you. It's almost as if your priorities come up for review when the sun is about to change signs, and today you'll be reassessing to better plan your future.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Staying healthy is about prevention, eating right, sleeping long and being happy. Later you'll be glad you put today's energy toward better self-care.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The zoom function of your mind is touchy, but don't be too analytical. Every action counts for something, but no actions count for everything. Hopefully, that takes some of the pressure off.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A surge of inner determination will be your lovely parting gift as the sun prepares to leave your part of the sky. You'll push forward, no hesitation, and face life head-on.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The best way to handle compliments is to turn them around, flattering the kindness and observation of the giver. These and other niceties are old hat to you. The cosmic attention coming your way will activate your social grace.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll make the first call, and you'll also be the one to repeat call when the other person isn't calling you back. That doesn't make you less powerful; it makes you more in control of the relationship's destiny.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People from the past will figure in and you'll find out what they're up to. You'll also note what's changed – your entire self-concept, for starters. Because you see yourself in a new light, the world does, too.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Gather more information to satisfy your curiosity or to help yourself understand a situation better, but don't worry about passing judgment. This one is not for you to decide.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Unfortunately, just because it's called a game doesn't automatically make it fun. But the players can make up the difference today, so invite your favorite people to join you in this "game."

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You have a talent for relating to those whose education and culture is different from your own and this will come in handy today as your life is enhanced by connecting with those from other walks of life.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 21). You'll perform tremendous feats in May. Your devotion brings someone up. A team will help you achieve a personal goal in July. It's the extra action steps you take in August that will net you new fans and customers. Taurus and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 44, 37, 9, and 50.
