ARIES (March 21-April 19). Pilots know that getting a plane off the ground depends on the opposing force of the wind. No opposition, no lift. Forces will seem against you today. How can you use this?

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You want the best and approach all things with an eye toward quality, even when you're out of your element. Ask questions to get educated on the difference between "good" and "great."

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your significance is a given; don't doubt it now or ever. Today, in lieu of doing one great big thing, you will execute a series of great little things and make a bigger difference with this approach.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your mood may not start out so warm and fuzzy, but you can improve its quality by changing the channel on your thoughts - or having fewer of them. Exercise will help.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's about playing whatever cards you're dealt to the best advantage. This is a day for calm, collected strategy. If you give your enthusiasm, do so because you consciously decided to.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). All things being equal, most things aren't. That is to say, everything has its own qualities, and the more you can honor the differences, the better off you'll be.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Maybe this day isn't happening to you so much as for you. Try out that framework and see if it doesn't seem like a better fit. Things do seem to be unfolding in the direction you've been wanting to go.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). They shouldn't tell you no. If the sign has it inside a circle with a line through it, it will be extra appealing to you today. There's something in you that wants the rush of being a little bad.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Be tenacious as a sidewalk weed. Find a place to grow through the hard parts. The situation may not change because of your attitude, but you'll change, and that's what matters.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Today's events seem to swing, sputter and combust like some newly forming invention in a science lab. You're not the mad scientist, but the one who will use the creation to its best advantage.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The heart is a better healer than the head. The heart will keep it simple, pumping oxygenated lifeblood into the situation, giving all that's needed for vitality and rushing away with the bad stuff.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). How you start out will set the tone for your entire day. There's a key piece of your routine that could really use a good tweak, and this is a fine day to set a new precedent.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (July 18). Your approach is simple: They treat you well, you'll treat them even better. and this will start a snowball effect of positivity. You'll make peace with someone in September and free up energy and space to love anew. There's a peek into a fantastic new world in November. You'll be paid for doing what you love in December. Leo and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 1, 33, 35, and 49.
