ARIES (March 21-April 19). The most valuable asset to your work right now is a person whose opinion you fear. You don’t even have to elicit a response to get the benefit. Do your work while imagining what this person will say about it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll do far more to help others than you will do to help yourself. Use this. Who else will benefit when you get your needs met? How can you change things so others will win along with you?

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Two things that separate the masters from the aspirants: The masters have learned the value of time and of health. They can pace themselves and make self-care a priority.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are times when trying feels as good as success; actually, that is more often than not. So, go on and give it your best shot -- regardless of your odds.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When people come to you with problems, don’t fix the problem; fix the person. Lend the tools and thought process that will enable a person to handle this sort of problem autonomously the next time it comes up.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). No one likes to plug away at a task they are no good at. A lack of results is demotivating. That’s why getting a small win up front is so important to fueling your further efforts. Try and build this concept into your plan.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). These little demands someone keeps making of you -- attention, involvement, reaction -- each exchange seems so minor but it’s a distraction that disallows you to become deeply, profoundly immersed in your desired focus.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are those who treat you in a general sort of way, as though you’re not a person but a category. Such dealings make any genuine exchange of regard seem like an explosion of feeling.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ve been known to work yourself weary. Don’t let it happen this time because it will take too long to bounce back. Instead, take breaks. Have some fun. Relax periodically, whether you think you need to or not.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It does seem like the right organizational system, partner, guru or face cream is the answer, but this is just marketing doing what marketing does best. The real remedy will be a deeper commitment from you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As your responsibilities change, so will your social life in a natural and gradual progression that would be silly to fight. Over time, all will gracefully accept that needs change and so will the ways they get met.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). One person’s forgetting is an opportunity for another’s remembering. You’ll jump in and volley the conversation, override bad form with good manners, provide the missing information or discreetly redirect the focus.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 16). You thought you were on your own side, but you didn’t realize the many ways you were passing your power instead of holding on to it, playing against your own strengths. No more! The next seven weeks show you more fully realized than ever. In December, you’ll cash in. March brings exciting travel. Sagittarius and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 34, 12, 18 and 49.
