ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may slacken the reins and let the horse lead once in a while, but never release your grip completely. If the horse takes off and you're not holding the reins, even the angels will be challenged to help you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are in touch with reality, but not bound to it. Today you prefer to be a player on the stage. Pretending is fun, especially when you don't take the character you're portraying too seriously.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Boldness comes in many forms. You don't usually think of a bold person as someone with tears in his eyes, but the one who is unafraid to show his feelings in action is the very definition of bold.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): You're ready for the task at hand, so trust yourself. The only mistake you could make is being unaware of what's going on around you. Stay sharp, and you'll respond brilliantly to your environment.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): When it's time to be serious, tell the truth. When you're trying to be funny, tell the truth. You'll encounter both opportunities today. The humorous truth telling will be far more enjoyable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You feel like it all depends on you, and this will be true to a great extent. Though the whole group needs to work together for the best outcome, success will be unlikely without your contribution.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Approve of yourself. There are so many reasons to do so. Yes, you're kind, giving and funny. But here's an even bigger reason to approve: It will be impossible to get comfortable if you don't.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Living consciously is hard work. When you pay attention to everything going on around you, integrating that sensory input takes a great deal of energy. That's why you cherish your quiet time tonight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Does someone in your midst seem ready to pounce on your slightest transgression? This jealous force is actually complimenting you with the intensity of her attention, though it certainly won't feel that way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your studies will lead you to people who teach you and open you in new ways. “You can't do anything about the length of your life, but you can do something about its width and depth.” — Evan Esar
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You'll see new merit in what you do for others. Your job is more than work; it's a gift you give to the world. You gladly take the pay, but it's not the reason you serve.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may look around and see a mess, but don't stop there. Look even deeper into the potential future of the sloppily arranged elements. Try to envision what art you might make of this.
