ARIES (March 21-April 19). Separate what is said from who is saying it. This is how you make sure to clear your own prejudice from the information. Context is important to meaning, but the most integral information will stand up to several contexts.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your personal rules for yourself warrant examination. You're different now. You need other things, and what you face in the future will be a new challenge.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The higher-maintenance a person is, the less free he or she is. Knowing how to live with less gives a person power. To let go of needs is the way to a brighter spirit.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're not lost, yet you're experiencing a drifting feeling, as though your raft, gently tugged by the waves, is suddenly slightly farther from the shore than is comfortable. Time to paddle home.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The unmanageable parts of life won't be the difficult ones; it's the lovely ones in need of prioritizing that require your most critical faculties and diligent efforts.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Among the saddest words are "if only." An opposite grouping isn't so easy to land on, but it's something along the lines of "I accept." It's more resigned than happy, but it will bring you peace.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You've a way of encouraging your loved ones that is unbeatable. There will be no substitute for your presence. It will be extremely important that you show up in person if even remotely possible.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You tend to feel deeper into the situation than others will, and that is your strength. Sure, it means you can hurt more. But it also gives you greater motivation to make things right through work, love, and creativity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You're not above using sneaky ways to get people to do what you want them to do, especially because what you want them to do is better for them and for everyone else involved.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Questions get us through. Good questions make the day better. Ask, "How can I bring a little more (love, levity, clarity...) to the situation?" It is also lucky for you now to ask the kinds of questions for which there are no answers.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Be careful how you help. There will be a tendency to rush in and give what you have, but that's not always best. Let people show you what they need.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Science and art are not opposites as suggested by some dictionaries. You'll meld the two in today's endeavor, finding a beautiful arrangement of facts and a reasonable order to fantasy.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 19). There is little more satisfying than being able to fill in the void where you had a lack of skill. The satisfaction will not come immediately. In fact, it will be preceded by confusion and frustration. But keep at it and you will soon be good at what you need to be good at. There's a windfall in July. In February, love rains down. Virgo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 6, 16, 37 and 18.
