Happy birthday. You can’t perfect the art of being happy, because perfection is the enemy of happiness. This year you’re more likely to fall clumsily into happiness, court it awkwardly and dance with it daily. You’ll luck into money in October and December. You’ll execute a carefully planned adventure in December.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): The muses are fickle. Their inconstancy is part of their appeal. If you could count on them, they’d bore you. Though you can’t plan to be inspired, you can be open to inspiration.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Believing sometimes flies in the face of knowing. Today you will somehow subscribe to a belief and still be open to the possibility that other beliefs, even opposite ones, are also true.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): It’s an impoverished spirit indeed who lives to eke out a living. When you strive for meaningful accomplishment, you create the kind of spiritual wealth that inspires others to claim the same.
CANCER (June 22-July 22):You will impress. But what kind of impression would you like to make? Don’t go for shock value. It will overshadow the message you want to send.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It will be easier today to reduce your expenses than it will be to make more money. Once you lower your bottom-line costs, you’ll have the energy to raise your production level and income.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):You don’t like to be told what to do. Consider that the one giving orders simply may have forgotten to use manners. Model the behavior you’d like to see in others.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): While usually a social person - or at least a person who enjoys a balance of social time and private time - today exaggerates your need to be alone. You’ll get quite a lot accomplished in solitude.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Your memory isn’t bad, but you’re always astounded by those who seem to remember every detail from long ago. One such person will bring you back to a time you had long since forgotten.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):You realize striving for excellence is not going to make you popular. As a rule, high achievement makes people nervous. And yet, your stellar character won’t allow you to do less than your best.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): What passes for fun for others doesn’t meet your criteria. Don’t join in as if it’s the only game in town. Be proactive. Remind yourself of who you really are.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You don’t like to feel purposeless. Before you show up, you like to know why it’s important that you do.Your awareness of the stakes in a situation helps you relax and play your best game. Ask.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Every once in a while you’d like to indulge your need to be edgy, offbeat and even a bit weird without the burden of having to explain yourself. The fine arts will provide just the forum. Look into it.
