ARIES (March 21-April 19). Little thoughts come and go. Some of them don’t deserve to fade so quickly. Stop them from the fate of ephemera. Write them down; record them somehow. Truly, there will be gems worth acting on today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It will benefit you to actively participate in every meeting and to volunteer at the highest level of involvement. In doing so, you’ll be grooming yourself for the big challenges.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you try and it doesn’t work, try again. Repetition could be the key. But if it’s not, how about more force? Less force? A different method entirely? Keep experimenting until you find the answer.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Though you’ll never regret making time to see the ones you love, a little goes a long way right now. It also leaves you time to do things that are unfamiliar.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Only someone who is very needy, oblivious, narcissistic or a paying client can feel great about a one-sided conversation. Good conversation is usually a back-and-forth play where both parties feel heard and appreciated.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Thoughtlessness happens. This is just imperfect, selfish human nature. Sometimes you’re the perpetrator; sometimes you’re the victim. Either way, it’s a chance to call on the better angels of humility and grace.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Most people will do what it takes to create a comfortable dynamic between themselves and those they are likely to interact with repeatedly. A truer test of character is how people treat strangers.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may like whomever you want to like, dislike others at whim for any number of logical or irrational reasons, and have whatever sort of social preferences your heart desires. But you also make it a point to respect everyone.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Just because you can see trouble ahead where others can’t, that doesn’t make you a pessimist. It does, however, give you a choice. You can either help them see what’s looming or pretend to be as blind as the others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Whatever you’re up to, you’ll find there’s a cheap way and a fast way to do it. There’s also a way that will last longer or get out to more people. But there’s not a way that will do all of that at once. Decide your priorities.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You belong, and you give a sense of belonging to others. A short visit with friends will be invigorating, and will keep ties fresh while boosting your overall well-being.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Being around a certain person makes you feel slightly more impulsive, perhaps out of a need to compete or impress. It brings out a different energy in you that can be channeled in a really productive way.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 2). You’ll gain a reputation as someone who makes dreams come true. The best place to start is, of course, with your own dreams. Instead of waiting to be chosen, you’ll claim the role you want and do the things that make it so. Whether a thing is technically your job or not is beside the point. Your power will steadily surge. Libra and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 2, 28 and 14.
