Aries (March 21-April 19): You like things to stay the way they are. Knowing what's likely to happen next makes you feel relaxed and secure. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): What would your life look like if you didn't have a worry in the world? Get a vision and analyze it — there is magic and direction there.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): You can focus ahead when that's what's needed. But right now it is necessary to use your peripheral vision. Note the energy around you.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): When you are tempted to quit, you think about those who will keep working and how they might gain an advantage. It motivates you.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Someone's energy feels overbearing. You want to yell, "Stop telling me what to do!" The fact that this person is often right makes the situation even more irritating.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You start with an intention, but you must remind yourself to keep applying enough focus to achieve that outcome. Follow through.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You may discover you are paying someone to do what you would have more satisfaction doing by yourself.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Realize which relationships feed your soul, and put most of your energy there, to ones that give back.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Most people take the first offer that comes along. It takes courage to trust that there is something better out there to find.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You take note of the privileges you have enjoyed because of where you live. You will give back to the community that supports you.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You will do something courageous and, as it turns out, rarely done in your social circle: You will express yourself without worrying how others will judge you.
Today's birthday (Jan. 1): You'll achieve meaningful professional accomplishments this year. A fantasy comes true in February. New characters enter your personal life in March. You'll take a dreamy vacation in June. Invest in August, and see the project through. Taurus and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are 40, 22, 14, 38 and 18.
