ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have an excellent sense for what matters and what doesn't, but sometimes you chase down lesser opportunities and time wasters because it's just more fun.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's something very timely in your heart. Don't wait until the right place and moment to express it. You're in the right place, and the expression itself will create the moment.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you do your best, you may not produce the greatest result ever, but you'll create the best possible result for the moment, and that's good enough.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don't want to be treated better than everyone else. You'd rather understand the common experience and bond with people.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You absolutely have to "do" to "know" today. The best scenario will be for you to work alongside a friend who has experience.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are an industrious hummingbird today. These blossoms open but once and then lose their petals and become vehicles of legacy. You'll help in this process.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your only job is to keep striving to uphold the virtues you hold dear: patience, love, awareness, mastery, joy.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When people mind their own business, it feels like all is right with the world. Too bad people seldom mind their own business for very long.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You've been looking forward to this change, and now you don't have to wait anymore. A pattern that used to repeat on a seemingly endless loop will now be completely interrupted.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Time alone won't heal all wounds. You have to have it in you to knit things back together - which you do. But not everyone does, and that's something to be aware of today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Lying isn't an option for you. Saying nothing may very well be the friendliest and kindest thing to do.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Cynicism may be smarter and more accurate, but who cares? It's also lonelier. People who are overly concerned with facts and actualities are rather boring.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 28). You don't want things to come too easily, because you like who you become when you have to earn your benefits. In many ways, you're smarter and stronger than you've ever been. You'll use your powers to help loved ones. Seize a professional opportunity in August. September sends you on a journey. Libra and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 13, 8, 47, 26 and 11.
