Aries (March 21-April 19): Throw out the list of things you are supposed to do today. Dare to wing it. You'll probably accomplish everything and more — yet your approach will be more free and fun loving.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You will likely go deeper into the state of mind you are in. If it's not a positive one, take drastic measures to pull yourself in a new and improved direction.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): The way you see yourself is not the way you are. Think only the best about yourself. You will rise up to meet the image in your mind's eye.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): The different characters in your world will mix and mingle in fun and interesting combinations.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): The contemporary spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle wrote, "I have lived with many Zen masters, all of them cats." Follow your feline instincts.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In your fantasy world, piles of money are given to you for no reason and it's always your favorite kind of weather. Your real life will match up in some small way today.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): When you see something that is clearly wrong, you speak up. But most of today's errors fall into a gray area. Better to hold your tongue.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): This hard work you're doing alone may be unavoidable, but at least it is gaining you the respect and admiration of your peers.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have a cheerful view of the very things that other people are fretting and moaning about. Ease them into the light.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Positive changes at home are the theme, from rearranged furniture to new agreements between family members. Improved listening makes this possible.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Doing your own thing was always important, but lately you've grown weary of the maverick lifestyle. A trip home might do you good.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Be bold. Find satisfaction in your world, even when it seems to elude those around you. You are a lucky and successful person.
Today's birthday (May 16): Keep an open mind about what it will take to make this the best year of your life. Past ideas about success morph into something more significant. You'll be inspired to love in a way that you couldn't before. There may be a move in July. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 9, 20, 24 and 18.
