ARIES (March 21-April 19). The ordinary thing before you has a deep truth to it. You'll find out just what that is - or at least glimpse it for a pleasurable moment. Your full attention and engagement is the magic key.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you're looking for it, you'll find it. So look for the good stuff, fresh excitement, the sweetness in the middle, and the emotional equivalent of that.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It will be better to get guidance from an approachable person who can give you the practical steps than from an expert who can dazzle you with science and theory. This one is pretty simple.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The puzzle of the day will be best navigated through emotional intelligence and intuition. Tell the voice of reason and your inner critic, "Kindly calm down, friends. I got this."

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It won't be easy, and it won't be hard; it will just be necessary. Don't show up trying to change things or improve things. Show up ready to work and all will click into place.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's not about finding your joy today, although you certainly may find it along the way. If that happens, it will be a byproduct of your pursuit for a greater understanding for what's around you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Though you'll mostly keep your unique opinions and observations to yourself, there is one thing you notice that you absolutely must share.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll get the sneaking suspicion that you're the central oppressed figure in a repetitive, drawn-out drama. That's your signal to decentralize yourself. Make it about someone else.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Just because a crisis is not material doesn't make it any less real. Existential crisis is every bit as dangerous. You'll avoid it by reminding yourself of your purpose throughout the day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What would happen if you met that (probably very difficult and unreasonable) person halfway? The outcome will be better than fully getting your own way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll earn the respect of those around you, not because you're so great at what you do but because you have the heart to keep going forward.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If you make a mistake, you'll bounce back from it, but with a little effort on the front end, you can avoid the pitfall in the first place. Find your mentor.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 4). You'll be met with understanding and acceptance. Operating within family-like environs will be a pleasure. There will be some restructuring of your days in February, and you'll spend money differently. This prepares you for glorious June. Capricorn and Gemini adore you. Lucky numbers: 3, 40, 2, 21, 15.
