ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some of the most influential people of your life aren't the type to readily give advice. They just live exemplary lives, certain aspects of which you would love to emulate - and today, you will.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Smart people seek wisdom, and wise people seek intelligence. Certainly there will be plentiful examples of one without the other today, but not from (well-rounded and deliberate) you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've been there. You've been the source of the long sigh followed by "if only." But now you're too busy making things happen for yourself for such sighing. You need to be around people who are the same way.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). "Vain is the word of a philosopher which does not heal any suffering of man." There's lots of advice out there today, mostly unhelpful, much of it impractical. It only adds to the beauty of a good ol' to-do list.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Though it's sometimes fun to touch on mystical topics, what matters today more than who you were in a past life or how to interpret someone's aura is who you are being now and how that's working.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). One never knows what might be distracting another person. Kindness is called for.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The person with the least need of a situation has the most cheerful, relaxed attitude toward it. Today provides one more example of the benefits of detachment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There is but one way to draw a straight line between two points. But if the line is crooked it can follow an infinite number of different paths. Go directly. Get there the easy, simple way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). All things turn into fire in the end - otherwise known as "the beginning," because fire is also the birth mother of all things. It's a good and necessary part of the creative cycle.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There should be a name for the particular type of anxiety that accompanies technical difficulties. Software errors, password fails, WiFi issues ... quickly let it go. You'll come up with astoundingly creative solutions.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Don't let work take an outsized role on your sense of self. You're not defined by your work any more than you're defined by any other single element of your life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Maybe it's impossible to tame that ocean of feeling inside you, but you'll be incredibly powerful when moments of calm do come over you.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 23). Your appreciation for what you already have leads to augmented fortunes this solar return. You treat others with such tenderness through 2017 that relationships will develop an unparalleled depth of feeling. There's a professional advancement in February. A financial upswing begins in May and keeps building. Libra and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 19, 33, 24 and 15.
