ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're on the path, and you could use a lift. Don't look to those people at the destination; they have already arrived. The help you need will come from one who's just a little further along.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Generic advice – like "relax!" "walk it off!" or "smile!" – can seem demeaning, which is why you refrain from giving it and also make a point not to be around people who give it. That said, the fix for today may be a little generic.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). While some fear that people will laugh at their work, comedians fear the opposite. Whatever your strength or fear, there is someone who embodies the flip of it. Reach that person today.
