ARIES (March 21-April 19). To grasp the obvious is not the mark of a dull mind - quite the opposite! You're accepting something without question that ought to be questioned now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What matters is action. When making requests today, don't cloud the picture with a lot of background information. Figure out the next action then command it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Humans have three brains in one: the reptile brain for survival, the limbic brain for feeling and the intellectual brain for reason. Today reason will be outnumbered by the other two.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Open-ended questions work wonders to get to the bottom of a mystery, solve a problem or get to know the situation. Try this opener: "Tell me about..."

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Maybe you're in your own little world today, but you're there by choice. This is the place where you can see possibilities that others don't and live in the future.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's not your concern for others that improves the world; it's what you do about it. Your positive impact will ripple outward.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will read between the lines, as well as above and below them, and your comprehension is off the charts. But what will you do with this knowledge? Maybe nothing for a while. Let it settle in.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You know who suggests that people are the sole architects of their own luck? Lucky people. Anyway, there's little time to speculate on fortune's role, as your journey currently requires extreme focus and effort.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Make no assumptions. You never really know how another person lives until you are living as another person. Also, those who claim normalcy may have a very different definition of "normal."

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A minor reworking of the way you tell your story or express yourself will be the difference between getting people on your team and going it alone.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are certain items - such as shoes, for instance - that are both functional and symbolic to you. A new pair of shoes makes you feel like you're really going somewhere good.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It's not fair to say that the world is hostile, friendly or even indifferent. There are many different kinds of environments in the world. You'll benefit from exploring new places. Keep an open mind.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 27). You do and say your truth this year and grow in power because of this. August features the excitement of new business and big money. Note that loved ones don't have to be your whole life in order to make your life whole. September sets a new boundary and starts a trend toward deeper fulfillment. Aquarius and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 4, 44, 9 and 20.
