ARIES (March 21-April 19). Learning about another person will be a hit-and-miss process. Soon you'll read the other person with more clarity and be smoother in your interactions, too.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). One of the ways your mind works to protect you is to blur your memory of the bad stuff and make the good stuff glitter. That's why it's good to write things down today - a reality check for later.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Life won't push you into anything. But if you can't find a reason to stay, that's a pretty good reason to go. So push yourself. The adventures don't exist until you create them. Take the steps.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). On days like today, get the right kind of attention. Bottom line: Don't spend time with people who make you feel more alone than you do when you're alone.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Unrequited love is easier to get past than once-requited love because it doesn't involve a process of wondering what went wrong. You've been on both sides of this, so you'll have compassion.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It may be a fight to hang on, but it shouldn't be a fight to let go. Letting go is easy. Letting go is simply a decision.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're open and ready to connect with new and old friends. Your engagement with what's around you brings people closer. Your smile tells them it's OK.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Looking back, the bad feelings are what led you to create a better life. That's why you don't automatically shy away from things that have the potential to be unpleasant if they lead to growth.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may feel as though you have to be twice as good as the others in order to get half of what they have (and you're not wrong about that). Don't take it personally; it's just paying dues.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are those who don't have as much natural empathy as you do. Then there are those who have it but don't act on it. For now, stick near the big-hearted friends.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Part of the fun of new relationships is fantasizing about what they might turn into. Enjoy the dreams of what may be. Soon enough you'll come to a mature understanding of reality.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). To befriend the ones who are naturally a part of your daily life takes an average amount of spiritual generosity. To go out of your way to befriend someone - that's for the spiritually advanced!

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 3). Your best supporters will push you, not pressure you. Correct and worthy goals come with their own power source - a jetpack of motivation. So while you'll need help in the beginning, once you lift off, you'll keep it until you get to the destination. Relationships will be sweet, especially now and November. Cancer and Capricorn adore you. Lucky numbers: 6, 20, 11, 15, 27.
