ARIES (March 21-April 19). It takes time to find the nexus between what you want and what people want from you. Fails happen, not for nothing. Rather, fails are experiments from which to gather data. Chalk it up to research and development.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s the simple decisions of timing that will matter more than anything else to the success of an endeavor, the most important of which being when to start and when to quit.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It seems like it just involves you and a few friends, but this is a worldwide game you’re playing -- an idea you might find inspires you to play a little bigger than you were.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are times to fake it till you make it, and then there are times like today, when it’s best to admit upfront what you don’t know so you can ask for help and get up to speed with the assistance of an experienced someone.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). So many people will forget to relax, smile and connect with the people they share a space in time with. Their agendas, dramas and distractions will keep rushing past the actual world. Don’t let that be you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The world at large and your inner world are developing at different rates, and that’s par for the course today. With the foundations of your home life solid, you’ll decide what you’re going to do in the outside world, or vice versa.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Certain boxes must be checked so that everyone involved can say they did their job. Still, what matters isn’t so much what work gets done or doesn’t but the way everyone feels about their role and their collective purpose.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). To make an inviting space for others is to welcome their presence. You’ll arrange an environment that’s intriguing and not overbearing, leaving room for everyone’s imagination to flood in.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The experiences you’ve lived do not remain as they were, like prehistoric bugs trapped in amber, still pristine and intact years later. No, the memories change upon viewing. Each visit alters them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don’t force yourself to go any faster or work any harder than your natural inclination dictates. You don’t want to do the spiritual equivalent of overdoing it at the gym, thus creating unpleasantness that prevents future workouts.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The deal you’re investigating gets complicated. Usually, complications make things more trouble than they are worth, although your strong gut feeling will override the logistical aspects.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t like relying on others to meet your needs, but sometimes there’s no getting around it. When this is the case, and it will be today, don’t resist for one minute. Embrace all gifts with a grateful heart.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 8). Things will change in the way you’ve been wanting them to for a long time now. As the cosmic favor tips in your direction, you’ll be generous wherever you can and keep your ego in balance. It’s the giving you do in October that leads to the building of something remarkable. Year-end adventure is romantic. Libra and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 13, 1, 22 and 45.
