ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you fear that you're bothering someone by reaching out, it's a sign that this person hasn't made you feel comfortable and accepted enough to relax. Not your fault. Also, not a good match.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Thinking ahead will help you play your moments better. A lot of moments won't even happen unless you make a plan. Just don't get stuck there. You don't live in the plan; you live in the moment.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're a very responsible person. You'll take charge of the situation, all the while keeping in mind that some things are better left alone.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Inspiration will come in the form of people you may feel competitive with. It's something you'll likely keep hidden, and wisely so. Let it burble up to be turned into improvement-fuel later.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll look back and laugh at some of the rules you used to give yourself. Think: "Is there a rule I'm imposing on myself that is holding me back?"

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). That tough person you admire (but wouldn't exactly want to be) will help you find the courage to cut out nonsense and get down to business.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your fantasies are the celluloid that will project onto the real world like film to the silver screen. Shift what you think about toward a topic that makes you feel giddy, warm and inspired.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Friends are blessings. And yet, you really should be able to feel free around them. Shake off the uptight energy and, hopefully, they will, too.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Even though you can tell when someone is lying, it's not always wise to call the person out right away. Going along may give you a strategic advantage. Understand what's really going.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may feel a little bit irritable. Do you need more excitement or less excitement to get back into the zone? Let intuition speak to you and then take action (or inaction as the case may be).

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're ready to admit, if only to yourself, what makes you feel secretly superior. Then you can release the belief. The more equal and connected you feel to others, the easier life will be.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Synchronicity happens so often in your life that it's almost de rigueur by now. Nonetheless, it will be a delight to learn the one you think of is also thinking of you.Expect a random sighting.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 4). You'll give your all to projects, so choose them carefully. A brilliant solo mission will end in satisfaction, money and a prize. Once you know what you can handle alone, join a team. In 2018, first safety and security will invigorate you; then travel will ignite a new passion. Capricorn and Aquarius adore you. Lucky numbers: 30, 2, 22, 17 and 9.
