ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes, the more you learn about something, the more you want to learn. Sometimes, what you learn helps you decide it's not for you. You'll know right away which way it's going.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Work-life balance is a common buzzphrase, yet it's a moot point when you're doing enjoyable work with people you love. This is something you're creating for yourself with actions you take.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Young people require your tenderness; elders require your compassion; and all the in-betweens mostly need respect and a little attention. Cover this social checklist and it will be an excellent day.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Nothing will give you more enjoyment than adding to your skills and your knowledge base today. There are more ways available to you than ever for this. Even top universities offer free courses online. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Closed minds and hard hearts are softened by small, weak, vulnerable things. Better to inspire people to drop their defenses than to take up arms against them.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Life is weird. You live it forward, but you understand it backward. With that in mind, don't stress yourself over the minor choices of the day. Leave that for the amusement of future-you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The weak will require your tolerance, and the strong will take even more of it. You will be able to muster some. When in doubt, apply the Golden Rule.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The success of this day depends on simple sorting. It's about matching what you have to give to the people who most need it. Even better - what do you enjoy giving? Find the ideal receiver for that, and everyone will be happy.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You want to connect, but it will be hard today, as the people around you are different from you and not in a good way. Stop judging, and just observe - until you feel more comfortable.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Someone who intends to look out for your best interests may be unintentionally holding you back from getting the best education. Don't let your love for a person cloud practical judgment.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). From family favorite to local star to full-blown fame - this is the journey of more people than ever in the current media-saturated milieu. Perhaps you don't quest for fame, but you'll see the benefit of good publicity.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're the leader - maybe not officially, but you're the one everyone is following. Keep driving the action with your subtle, genial ways. Do you really need the title? There are benefits to not having it.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 19). The start of 2018 will serve your highest good - piping hot and delicious, too. Even your accidents will have happy results. Next month features a surprise visit. Also there's a key investment opportunity before Halloween. Physical training in 2018 will lead you to make other lifestyle improvements. Gemini and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 50, 5, 24, and 17.
