ARIES (March 21-April 19). In an environment with strict rules that most are inclined to follow, new ways of thinking are hard to come by. Since the problem won't be solved without a good idea, you may want to go somewhere different to think about it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You won't be sorry if you err on the side of kindness and restraint today. This will be easier when you relax and detach from the day's tense situation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It so often happens in life that it's not the best one who wins the prize; rather, the winner is the best fit for the prize - one more reason not to take it personally.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Just as a tree crashing in the forest does not count as a sound if there is no ear to hear, your creative impulses require a sounding board. Find one, or you won't be motivated to continue.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Because you're inwardly quiet and outwardly observant, you will witness an instance of touching detail that expands your heart like a sail to send you floating on the breezes of the day.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are many societal rewards to bribe you along a certain path. They don't know you have your own reasons for being on this journey, reasons more rewarding than anything they could provide.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Handling stress well is the skill to build on, as it will reward you time and again. Learn how to better process bodily sensations associated with stress, worth the time and money you put into it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your happiness will be the result of following an impulse to explore and learn. Your research will lead you to concepts, next steps, and, most important, people who help you take them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You've seen ravens, maybe hundreds of them, and they've all been black. It suggests, but doesn't prove, the color of all ravens. Use what you learn, but don't assume all the facts are in yet.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The people who know you well can anticipate, among other things, your time of arrival, general appearance and the conversational topics you're likely to choose. Today, you'll surprise them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Though it may not be easy or even possible to change today's circumstances, it may well be possible to change the way you experience them, change that will help you reach your goal.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your closest friends and loved ones are not always your best support system. You are right to cater your sharing to your audience. Let people earn the right to know certain things about you.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 3). Your presence makes hearts grow stronger. You'll never know what a difference you make this year just by showing up. Your powers of imagination are extra strong over the next 10 weeks, so imagine success. A structure around practicing your craft will put you in the running for more money in July and a prize in August. Capricorn and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 4, 44, 48, and 30.
