ARIES (March 21-April 19). In the name of understanding where another person is coming from, you'll learn about things that don't interest you or you'll take part in activities you never thought you would.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're going to change; you're not going to lose who you are, though. By arranging the "you" differently, you'll experience life as someone else.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're in a sweet position to negotiate, because you don't really need the thing you're bargaining for. Be ready and willing to walk away from the deal, and you'll get the best one imaginable.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When others treat you poorly it doesn't bring your value down; it brings theirs down. If this happens, remain reasonable and rise above it. If, from that view, you still think a sharp response will help, apply it mindfully.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You've a new deliberateness to your being. You show up, tune in, keep flowing attention to what you're doing and execute the action like it's the only thing that exists at this moment. For you, it is.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Make your point, but don't present it as though it's the absolute way and truth. You'll be more convincing if you present it as one good option. Bring up the opposition, if only to prove you understand what you're up against.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). These are normal conditions, no extenuating circumstances here to factor in. Therefore, what you see is not only what you get: It's what you'll get more and more of. Is that acceptable to you?

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are those who believe that the morally correct thing is to do that which makes the most happy. You know better. Right is right, and wrong is wrong even when the popular choice.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Evidence that, as of yet, has gone undiscovered cannot be factored into your decision. Buy time. Delay the conclusion. Don't act. Better to wait and see.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Someone is trying to convince you that the story is neither true nor false, that the amount of truth it holds should be enough. Let this be a red flag. The fuzzy logic won't hold over time. It's true or it's not. Probably not.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). No more messing around. You don't need inspiration or research or tools. You just need to get in there and put the hard work in. You can have this finished in a few hours.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The commercial world is a messy plurality of objects and services that is organized, thankfully, into a monetary system. Today it will help you to remember that this concept of money isn't fixed or absolute. Negotiate.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 25). If you absolutely had to distill the meaning of life into one word, your word would be "love." You'll live, give, and have so much of it this year. The new year will bring professional opportunities. A contract in March is a turning point. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 22, 38, 17, and 44.
