ARIES (March 21-April 19). One of two things is going to have to happen for you to succeed at today's challenge. You'll either have to alter the challenge or alter your approach to it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Friends will come to you because they need to be heard. Don't let it stop there, though, or it will turn into a pity party. Keep going and look for the solution together. Give it a nudge if needed.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Instead of waiting for someone to step out of the darkness and save the day, you stepped into the light and saved it yourself. You've earned every bit of self-respect you possess.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). As you use your talents, do not assume that you know what all of them are. There are things you can do that you've never even considered before. It's important to keep trying what's new.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You won't be able to let go of the concept you don't really understand. Your brain will cling to it, trying to unscramble it. It's the magnetic power of mystery at work.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you trust yourself, don't trust the self that you think you should be. That self is a hologram, not even real enough to be called a dream. Trust the self you are.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). They'll go on and on about what they believe if you let them, but the thing is that beliefs are best experienced through action. If you can't tell what a person believes by what he or she does, the belief is weak and so are the words.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As you do what it takes to put your work in front of an audience, concerns will arise about criticism or judgment. Don't let this stop you. There are opportunities around the bend!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Although it's nice to be around people you like, often the people who affect you profoundly and teach you the most valuable and useful lessons are people you don't like.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Use silence to your advantage. The spaces between activities, ideas, words - that's where the magic will happen. To be comfortable in silence is to respect the music of life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You wrote your name one way when you were 5 and another when you were 10 - you are open and influenced by the mind of the world. Apply who you are today. Tomorrow you'll be different.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). In your dark moments, you think that no one cares - or rather, that they don't care specifically how they should or with enough velocity to make a difference.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 28). Your curious mind seeks to understand people better this year, and getting along beautifully is the happy outcome. June brings a lightning bolt moment that starts projects rolling through August. September offers magnificent leisure time. Better work and financial opportunities come in August and November. Capricorn and Virgo adore you. Lucky numbers: 30, 1, 11, 32, 13.
