Happy birthday (May 13): You'll see how an area of fate is up to you. You'll bootstrap the mission and get it done. Summer shows you dressing a part and later you'll become it, with the paycheck to match. Relationships get revitalized. You'll bury an old hatchet and invent new ways of interacting. You'll also go to an event and take home the trophy.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): No one is born knowing it all. Those who act like they've achieved total knowledge will annoy the rest. You'll be open to learning and you'll enjoy what others contribute to your body of knowledge.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When you're around people you trust, it's easier to have fun. You'll find yourself in circumstances that engage your senses and invite you to be fully present to the moment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): People make decisions based on what's easy to evaluate, not what's most important. Knowing this, you'll make it easy for someone to choose the thing that would be good for you too.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): You may find yourself tidying a room instead of tackling a task. When you don't know where to begin, even cleaning seems like a good idea. But once you actually do get started, everything will come together quickly for you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You'll notice you're of a different mind entirely from where you were last year. You've dispelled a few myths and course-corrected accordingly. You'll get a chance to go back and pick up something you lost along the way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): People can be bad at relationships and good at their jobs or socially irresponsible and personally devoted ... you'll grapple with contrasts and note the benefits and shadow aspects of an interaction.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): There will be something to settle and a face-to-face exchange is the best option. Your verbal game is on point. With a little forethought you'll negotiate your way into a sweet deal.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Some say everything happens for a reason. Others say life is random. You'll have a little evidence for both arguments today and whatever you get you'll leverage into a tidy chunk of good fortune.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There will be pressure to take life at a hurried speed. Push back — change lanes or remove yourself from the race entirely. You'll be happier going at your own pace.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): No matter how brilliant your work may be, it won't play in the wrong crowd. Do your research, find out what appetites you're dealing with, and aim your efforts to serve those desires.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It's weird, but it does happen ... people can be good, enjoyable company and yet be, nonetheless, bad for you. For whatever reason certain people bring out a side of you that you'd rather keep in. Noted!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You have something that the others need. Position yourself to be available to those who have best earned your offering or those who most desperately need it.
FRIDAY THE 13TH
Many tall buildings avoid naming the 13th floor and go right to the 14th (or more conspicuously to “12B”) in hopes of getting around the bad luck. There are airports without a 13th gate and teams without a player No. 13. What superstition do you keep alive to avoid bad luck or engender good luck? Is it working?
