ARIES (March 21-April 19). You make it about others. It’s a tactic that’s worked wonders for you, though you don’t realize you’re doing it. You’re nowhere with people until you understand what their needs are.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t have to know everything. That’s what search engines are for. Having excellent judgment -- that’s the rare thing. Combine that with access to a lot of information and it’s the golden combo that gets you paid.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Devote your time to the ones who are devoted to you. Pleasing the critics or trying to impress the tastemakers is a waste of time. There are very few of them, and they’re not the ones you live with day to day.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have it within your power (as well as within your talent and your reach) to pull off a show-stopping moment. Check in, give your care, bring the charm, make someone’s day.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s pretty normal for life to grow, as most things grow, quite unevenly. Some parts will need to be brought up to scale to work with other parts. Soon you’ll have everything running right.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In this readymade world, the custom item, designed to fit a specific need and handmade to extremely particular standards is scarce indeed. Scarcity creates value. Your love is a custom fit and very valuable.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’re giving focus to something you’d rather not. Intellectually, this isn’t what you want, but the habit is hard to break. It will help to either rearrange your physical environment or just go somewhere else.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll have a strong sense of how you can improve the situation. It’s safe for you to act on that as long as you do so with tact, diplomacy and a willingness to share the credit.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There will be many opportunities to practice the art of interaction. Your aim is not only for social smoothness but also for an exchange that’s unlike any other.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your reputation will precede you, but this isn’t news to you. You designed it that way. You showed people what they should know about you, and you’ll continue to add richness to this story.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If the rules are the only thing standing between you and making the difference you want to make in the world, you have to consider whether those are really the rules you need to follow.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If someone’s opinion of you matters too much to you, then you’ll start acting out of insecurity instead of your own creative will. Pull back. Get involved in something else. Then the dynamic will change.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 6). Welcome to a purposeful and self-directed year in which there’s little standing in the way of your self-expression. An exciting list is in-development. Fresh challenges, qualities you want to embody, experiences you’ll make happen and people you want to know will all go on the list. You’ll tick off items every month. Scorpio and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 50, 41, 27 and 3.
