Happy birthday (Sept. 23): You continue to grow brighter, in part because you expose yourself to a wide array of ideas and hang out in intelligent and diverse company, but also because you're open to learning with your whole being and soul. Your emotional intelligence grows, and loving connections become easier than ever for you to make.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Because people gather comfortably around you, you'll be the glue that makes everyone work together. It's a point of pride when you can connect people who can help each other. In a way, it makes you an architect of fate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The same argument seems to flare up on the regular, but you'll change something about it this time so that it won't come back around. Probably you'll acknowledge the validity in both sides, and everyone will agree to disagree.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Dreams can come true without a plan; however, your dream has a better chance with all these elements in place. You can start with any element and they'll all progress together.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): When people want your assistance, you're apt to spring into action. Some you help really are needy. Maybe they have more than you; it just so happens that they also want more and ask for more.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have time for whatever you make time for. There are things you want to do that you haven't figured out how to make happen, but you'll definitely find a way when it's a priority for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A relationship is like an ecosystem. You'll look for the same qualities in a relationship as you do elsewhere: livability and affordability. In relationships you pay with your emotions and your attention.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You'll bring energy to your interactions because you want them to be memorable. What can you do that will bring the unexpected charge? It's worth it to come up with a few surprises.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): The hoop is held out before you. Should you jump through? This one looks easy. Once you pass the first test, the hoop will be raised in a game that will continue for as long as you participate in it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have more control than most people over your own charisma, and you're able to turn on the charm at will. You don't like to shine too brightly too much of the time because you want it to mean more when you go full wattage.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Something magical happens as you put your own agenda on the back burner to advance the goal of another. You'll take on the challenge with relaxed confidence. You won't be paid in dollars, but you'll be compensated.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): It will take a beat or two to sync up with a loved one's groove, but once you get in step, you'll take on the day like pros. You're learning to trust each other, which will make for stellar teamwork.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): For you, it's not enough to feel social responsibility; you have to act on it to make things better. You're always looking out for anyone who could use help, and today you'll notice a need worthy of your attention.
