ARIES (March 21-April 19). If the cause is right, the aim is true, and the intent is pure, it really shouldn't matter what your chances of success are. Once you see the light, your heart won't let you turn away from it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Negative comments often sound more realistic than positive ones, but that's more of a learned bias than anything else. The positive, hopeful words will be more true to life today, not to mention more fun and empowering.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Hot water is only one of the things that keeps you clean. Oxygen to the brain from exercise and from people who make you laugh will also be part of today's purification process.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Because good manners have been so ingrained in you, you often respond to the cue to say "thank you" before you start to feel grateful for something. Today you will touch someone with your genuine expression of gratitude.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Part of your charm is that you always think of something kind to say, even when the circumstances make it challenging.

"I've had a perfectly lovely evening. But this wasn't it." - Groucho Marx

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Sin is when a person knows it's wrong but does it anyway. When a person doesn't know better, that's not sin, but ignorance. It's inappropriate to punish ignorance with anything other than knowledge.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Show your love when it's welling up in your heart. Don't hold back. Don't be afraid. When you treat the present like it's all you have, it will also be all you need.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you exceed expectations and make people smile, you derive pleasure. The only thing is, to create the desired effect, you keep doing more and more.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). With a stranger, you can be whomever you want to be. You can stay true to who you've been, or you can branch out and try something new.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are remarkable because you dare to reach. If you strive for Neptune or Alpha Centauri and you land on Europa instead, you're still light-years from where you were.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The limit-testers seem to take pleasure in testing yours and watching your reaction. Don't react. People usually stop pushing the button that doesn't work. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Since the only constant is change, learning to deal with it calmly will help you conserve energy and stay powerful. Practice is vital. Keep riding the changes with as little resistance as possible.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 14). Money doesn't always require hard work. Successful relationships are not always forged in tremendous effort. It's your year to hit the "easy" button. Get rid of your assumptions regarding effort so that all you have is an open mind. Spring features beautiful, exciting connections. Summer is a moneymaking bonanza. Capricorn and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 2, 44, 19, and 42.
