ARIES (March 21-April 19). The heart of everyone you talk to will be revealed in mundane, straightforward statements because you listen with your whole self — ears, heart, mind — and even listen beyond yourself. Listen with the mind of the sky.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Others will be drawn in by your warmth and charm. Though you’d love to be able to accommodate everyone, there’s only a certain number of people you can have close to you at one time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A cycle of goodness begins with what you do today to make another person’s life better. For both of you, the action results in your feeling stronger and more positive — a feeling that will spread to everyone around you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your love of stories isn’t an indulgence; it’s a necessary part of your growth. A good story changes you. You see the world differently because of it, and you behave differently because of that.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll sing your woes and dance your wins, maybe at the same time. Expression is your strength, and many will understand you and even be grateful that there’s someone in the world giving voice to what they feel.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll experience a strong pull toward an idea, person or place in which your destiny lies buried and dormant, waiting for your arrival to awaken the sleeping potential.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You became part of the group by doing and giving. But even if you gave nothing, the group would be better for having you. Know your value. Don’t undersell yourself or get so busy you can’t take in the energy of your environment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Uncertainty can cause terrible anxiety, or it can produce a delicious sense of anticipation. This powerful ingredient is best added in small doses and focused to the most positive effect.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Without dramatic tension, the story falls flat, and the members of the audience change the channel — if not on the television, then certainly in their own minds. So welcome a little unrest and don’t resolve everything so quickly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your fellow Capricorn Benjamin Franklin once suggested that ‘’the U.S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up with it yourself.’’ You’ll be on that chase today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Desire isn’t necessarily a thing that comes naturally. Often, it must be created. Those who strategically make themselves irresistible will be no less desirable today than those who come by it mindlessly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Cultivating a sense of play makes you more fun to be around, allows you to have more fun with your life and puts you in a stellar position for solving problems, as you tend to stumble on solutions when you’re just messing around.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 12). There will be plenty of chances to make wonderful deals and compromises in 2018. But for the next six weeks, avoid decisions by committee. The more self-determination in your world the better. A stylistic upgrade will have practical benefits in February. Love will take center stage and then change the set. Taurus and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 3, 11, 20 and 5.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Ask yourself, ‘’What can I do to make the world better? How can I leave it improved from the way it was when I found it?’’
