Happy birthday. Show off, even if you have to create your own opportunity to do so. People need to see you. June and July are the most romantic months. August is your chance at a big deal, but if you don’t nail it the first time, don’t despair, because October brings more chances. Practice up!

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’re after a feeling today. Who or what can give it to you? That is the question. And the answer may come in the form of a fellow fire sign (Leo or Sagittarius) on a similar mission.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone will try to convince you that what you’re contributing is very similar to what anyone would do. It’s not. Don’t be fooled. You’re a complete original and great in your very own way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): The squeaky wheel often gets the grease. But sometimes it goes on squeaking and everyone gets so used to it they don’t even hear it anymore. That’s when it’s time to stop squeaking and blow out.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): What feeling can you give to another? Do it. Being masterful at spreading emotion is a power more important than being able to turn invisible.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It is said that a mind can hold only one thought at a time, but you’ll challenge that notion today by maintaining opposing ideas simultaneously.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Some feel that showing enthusiasm for ideas that are not self-generated is admitting weakness. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Weak is the one who can’t forget himself and support his brother.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Your work may be completely superior to the work of others, but if you don’t present it in a way that allows it to be readily accepted, it will not get the fighting chance it deserves.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): In a new setting, it is natural to want to fit in. You may feel an eagerness to please those around you. They may or may not be worthy of your efforts. Stay removed. Wait and see.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Instead of looking for omens in the falling of leaves and flocking of birds, consult a maternal figure. Those who have seen you grow will prove more prescient than you might think.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It’s said no one gets a free ride. And yet you may note that some people, as it appears to you at least, have a mighty smooth deal. Don’t be jealous. Your disadvantage is actually an advantage.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Right now, you are not too worried about any of it. Why not seek maximum enjoyment from your endeavors?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The lower agenda seeks attention and aches for acceptance. The higher agenda is too busy trying to solve, heal and celebrate to care what others think.
