ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your social life is a series of concentric circles. To act intimately with the outer ring or respectfully distant with the inner ring is a breach of unspoken contract.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You like people, but you don't cling. You're confident you can find kinship with any number of people. You'll wait for a love that's intriguing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're a naturally hospitable person, so you can't fully enjoy yourself unless you know everyone is having a good time. Your generosity in this regard won't drain you; it will renew your energy.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Account for what is going right for you: It will be a long list. Your focus on the positive will reduce your worries.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Two people make the same mistake. One agonizes over it for ages; the other ponders what happened just long enough to decide what the lesson is. Be that one.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have the chance to work behind the scenes. Is that really where you can do the most good? What if you put yourself front and center? You're in fine form and have something to contribute.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's inside you now, that impish urge to upset the apple cart. You know better, and you won't make a move, but someone will find the gleam in your eye intriguing.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't preserve your self-esteem by doing things perfectly. Self-esteem is built through realizing that even when you make mistakes you're still awesome and worthy of your own love and the love of others.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Everyone needs help from time to time, but even if you don't really need it, you should ask for it anyway. Because people need to give you help. And the help they give makes them like and understand you better.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). How much do you want to accomplish? With little on your plate, you'll work slowly, take detours and just barely meet your deadline. With lots on your plate you'll work quickly, take shortcuts and just barely meet your deadline.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What stops people from having fun together is an entire story in their heads about how it should go - a story based on their assumptions about each other and not based on getting to know who is really there.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There's an art to making mistakes well. The weak way is to pass the blame. The strong way is to think in terms of cause and effect instead and then just figure out how to fix things.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 11). You've much to share and the right people to share it with, too. But you have to vet them to make sure. People should prove themselves over time before you let them get close to you. Your care in choosing bright environments and influences (and not settling for less) will bring beauty to your days. Libra and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 40, 22, 12 and 36.
