ARIES (March 21-April 19). In order to take care of other people, you have to first take care of yourself, which is what you'll be doing with a healthy swath of your day. If something makes you feel cared for, then do it. There's really nothing too frivolous.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When your heart and brain are out of sync, there's a jagged energy pattern represented in your day. So unify your mental and emotional states and make a conscious choice to come from love to smooth out your own way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Those who bring out your playful, lighthearted, creative side are people you need in your life for the long term. They'll strengthen your resilience. You'll be healthier for knowing them.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There's power in anger and a practical use for fear, so you wouldn't want to eradicate those feelings from your life. But a little goes a long way. The antidote for fear and anger is gratitude.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you think about the great art of the world, much of it is focused on small details – sunflowers, animals, the sky, food on a table and the like. If all you get excited about is the big things, you're going to miss most of life.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your mental, emotional and spiritual muscles need a workout just like the muscles in your body do. Once you fix yourself to a purpose and live it boldly, these faculties will engage and begin to get the exercise they need.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just as movies are better when the casting director gets things right, and companies run better with skilled workers in jobs that utilize those talents, your personal life improves with the right people in the right roles.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Is what you're asking of yourself reasonable? Would it be polite to require it of a family member? Is it more than you'd ask of your best friend? Be kind to yourself. Be fair.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A smile can mean a lot of different things. It can mean the interaction is over. It can be an invitation, or a dare. You'll get a wide variety of smiles to read today, to the point where you might consider yourself a connoisseur.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Because so much private information is made public through social media, people feel like they know one another when they don't. Public image is never the whole person. Avoid mistaking the person for their homepage.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Before you can hunker down and get to work, certain things have to be in place. You need a full tummy, a rested body and a mind that's not racing to solve some personal problem.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don't have to be religious to recognize that there's a power in love. Rituals that center around love will channel that power very effectively today, regardless of individual belief systems.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 12). In the past, you both failed at and succeed in doing very difficult things, which made you resilient and prepared you for the next three months of... nary an external challenge! You must therefore ambitiously create your own, a most satisfying pursuit, though not at all easy. But don’t worry; the fortunes will lavish you in their favor. Libra and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 8, 6, 18 and 37.
