ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you can win small, you can win big. You'll do both. Along the way, you'll also lose on either side of the equation. The important thing is to have courage and take none of it personally.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may want to be different, but the point of the game isn't to change yourself. This is about accepting yourself more and more fully.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don't worry if your focus of interest isn't everyone's today. A subject doesn't have to be trending to be compelling. It only has to be fascinating to you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The challenge is simple. The circumstance is straightforward. It's something to be protective of because this dynamic can change in an instant - the instant a complicated person gets involved.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may be changing the world, but it's difficult to see the change in a day. That's where hope and faith come in, and on days like today it's hard to generate that on your own. Stick by hopeful people.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's as though there's something in you that doesn't like to be too good for too long. It's the quality that keeps you riveting to some around you. Spice it up. They want you to bring the fun.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Nature is one way, the facts of which cannot be changed today. However, you can use what nature gives you in a way that enhances and improves your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your life is your own recipe. You may pull inspiration from various places - the internet, fiction, friends - but ultimately no one has the exact instructions for this dish. It's your own creation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You would pass one of your responsibilities to another if there were someone around who could handle it half as well. This is important, and if it's to be done right, it is to be done by you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Some jobs are important and urgent and must be completed quickly, for better or worse, to serve the bigger picture. Other jobs are even more important and must be handled right no matter how long that takes.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When people act right because they are afraid to do something wrong, it doesn't count as virtuous. The true mark of good character is one who feels they have a full range of choices and yet they still choose right.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No one can blame you for being a little extreme today. When all goes well, drudgery will be redeemed by success, and the parts remembered will be the dazzling highs and the dismal lows, not the tedium in between.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 1). Tender connections will happen often for you. You'll read people well and use this gift to care for your loved ones, communicate well and detect the hidden motivations of others that might affect your plans. The character-building work of the spring makes you even more beautiful and attractive. Capricorn and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 42, 13, 28 and 45.
