ARIES (March 21-April 19). Arguably, half of belonging is just acting like you belong. Feeling like you belong is obviously huge, too. But if you do a little of both and still feel like a bit of a misfit, just know others feel the same.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You may get a late start because there are certain things you'll do to get your head in the game; they take time. The rituals help! Keep reinforcing what works.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've felt at times that you were fundamentally different from those you were brought up around, so it's refreshing when today you recognize how you are alike.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The stream is suddenly the river, and as the river connects with ocean, the river is the ocean. Today your water-sign nature will echo this tendency to join.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're changed by every circumstance, and that's a good thing. It means you're open to letting life in. It means you're listening and learning. It's true that you have to protect yourself at times by making yourself hard, but not now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is often the case that one broken bulb renders the whole line of holiday lights useless. Let the metaphor remind us to check on one another.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Choose a memento representing the mundane aspects of your life. A picture would be enough, but it's not the same as something you can hold in your hand.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It doesn't feel true, but there really is a guidance system in you that never shuts down. In those directionless moments you think your soul lacks a GPS, but it's always in your pocket.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it's what keeps humans evolving. As for you, you'll prove your superior intellect by listening to many sides of a story before forming an opinion, if it even comes to that.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There's something you want to know, and it will be revealed to you indirectly - through small talk, intonation and body language. So there's really no need for probing questions, deep discussions or heated arguments.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Simplification is part of the brain's job. It's why the first time you travel somewhere the journey seems longer and more detailed; then later trips are short and blurry. It's also why you should go a different route today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Snap decisions will be necessary - mostly in matters of taste and style. Your decisiveness in this regard will make a project hum along at a pace that everyone can appreciate.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 13). You're afraid of something, and you want it at the same time. Over the next seven weeks, desire takes over and fear lessens just enough for you to dive in. This exhilaration will benefit many areas - your health, your love life and more - and the best part is that this will be true whether or not you get what you want. Capricorn and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 3, 33, 38 and 50.
