ARIES (March 21-April 19). What would you tell your best friend to do? Not your actual best friend - your fantasy best friend who needs to make a few decisions just like you do. Advise - then apply it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Maybe you want the same thing they want, but that won't help you get there any easier. Their reasons won't move you there. Figure out your own reasons - which will be big-time motivation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some will be threatened by what you believe. Some will challenge you. Beliefs should be tested. Otherwise, how will you know which ones will support you?

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Many great works of art infuriated people at first, then were appreciated after the minds of the audience caught up with the ideas. You'll be an early adopter.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You honor your commitments to the people in your life, and your social circle grows. You don't always get to choose who you're around. That's why the friends you do get to choose are so special.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Remember when you got long, consecutive, noninterrupted time chunks to organize your life around? Boy, that seems like a thing of the past. Don't worry, it will also be a thing of the future.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's a logic to your attraction to certain people and things. Examine your motives. What feels natural isn't always the best choice, but today, it will be a pretty solid one.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're ready to get deep, but your life is filled with shallow tasks. Let your heart provide the depth. Later, you can avoid any source of shallow work, but right now, it's pretty unavoidable.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Stay relaxed as you make your requests of others. Your charisma is turned up, and people will be inclined to make you happy. They will go to extra lengths to see you smile.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). So much is subject to interpretation. Assume that things mean what you want them to. Choose the meaning that energizes you. The more energy you have, the better you'll enjoy yourself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Here's what holds you in place: family, work, routine, the "boring" stuff. But it's not really boring, especially when you consider that all the best bits life will spring from these sources.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're embroiled in a fantasy about not having to compromise, doing it your way, and actually being supported in it. Truly, the compromises are good for you, yet too much of anything makes you long for the other things.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 22). You will learn new disciplines, methods, and ways of thinking this year. Kindred spirits working together will bring immense pleasure to your world. Lifestyle preferences come into play in February and March, driving you to travel to find inspiration. January and October represent financial highs. Taurus and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 30, 2, 22, and 16.
