ARIES (March 21-April 19). Start with the most crucial thing. If you don't, there may not be enough time. You'll get to the end of today's 1,440 minutes and be disappointed, having missed the whole point.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You construct an expectation, and when the expectation proves to be way off, there's nothing left to do but laugh - at least, that's your response. (Being light of heart and heavy of intellect helps make it so.)

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). What was derailed popped back on track, thanks to your "popping" abilities. Force usually isn't the way. It's more of a wiggle and snap that puts things back in line.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Given the multitude of ideas you generate, there won't be enough time for all of them. But with your knack for sensing the best one and focusing there, this day will be a productive one.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's a work in progress, but every day, in hundreds of different ways, you're acting out the person you want to be. It's not perfect. You may start to want something different for yourself, and that's OK, too. Acceptance is the path.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have seen the truth without really noticing it. And truth, not wanting to intrude on you, let you go, knowing you'd be back someday to be liberated by it in some way. The day has come.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The one you are so fascinated with represents a whole new world to you. You'll breathe in that world as you interact with this person and get a sense of what a longer visit might be like.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). No person who carries his worries with him is really on break. The only vacation from worry is to resolve it one way or another. You can rid yourself of a significant worry inside of an hour.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The reason you can touch the hearts of others is that you are in touch with your own heart and know what makes it swell with joy and empathy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You've gotten used to some unusual situations because the oddities evolved so gradually that you experienced them as ordinary life. Friends will provide an alternate perspective.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you want time to go by fast, fall into the routine. If you want it to go by slowly, novelty is the ticket. Bounce between the two for a humming good mood.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You know what you want it to look like, and you'll extrapolate all that needs to happen. The order it needs to happen in - that's the tricky part. Luckily, your organizational skills will be amplified.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 19). You alight upon social secrets, charismatic habits, and ultimately ways of bringing out the cleverness in others. They celebrate you time and again for it. February and October bring a surprise gift and money, too. Professional advancement will come in April. The travel in August will be out of character in a very fun way. Cancer and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 47, 10, 33, 15, and 6.
