ARIES (March 21-April 19). Aesthetic choices are never really correct or incorrect. So work on such matters using the sensibility that best represents your attractions and preferences.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you demand a little more of your conversations, you'll get a lot of fun, insight, and creative inspiration out of them. But you have to be willing to focus on the other person.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Ambition can be an energizing force, but it can also be the thief of contentment. There's a balance to be struck so you can swing into the future while holding firmly to satisfaction with the present.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are emotionally invested in something that would otherwise be a very clinical process. Rather ordinary daily happenings will present a magic opportunity for you to feel and make others feel.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The subject line is the trickiest part of email. Your point may not be juicy enough to get someone to open and read on. That sums up all communication today. To get heard will require pizazz.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your version of a good result may not match another's. Chances are, your standards are higher or just different. Therefore, it will be important to make your expectations known up front.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can't assume people know what you're all about. This is true even for people who, by now, really should. You'll have to fill in the blanks today by giving lots of context. This is a chance for fun.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You've seen it time and again. Frustration and anger at others is really anger with the self. It's easier to see when you're not the one who is mad. Either way, you'll grow from today's realization.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Start the story from the beginning, and take your time in the telling. People will be interested in you today and will want to be fully entertained.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Practice your charm with strangers. It will be easier than using it with people you know, because there's no expectation and you won't be worried about forgetting a name or key information.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). "Well, actually," they say when they are about to point out how wrong the other person is. This is annoying, at best, and can be downright combative, so try to ignore it when you hear it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Keep building your way forward, trying new things, introducing unlikely elements and basically taking an experimental approach to life. You might feel childish and foolish before you ultimately feel victorious.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 18). Your influence will grow through this solar return. People will accept your help, act on your advice and become successful in ways that benefit themselves and you, too. There's a breakthrough in March, and the opportunities get challenging and magical. Invest in April. Your creativity will shine. How gratifying! Libra and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 40, 1, 28 and 31.
