Happy birthday. A better structure to your finances will improve your lot in November and December. By February, you’ll have enough for a substantial investment. Virgo and Scorpio people adore you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’re happier when you feel you have too much to do than. For you, it’s a joy to be busy as long as you’re doing something meaningful.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You see a shortcut, but you won’t compromise your morals for anything, not even to achieve one of your most important goals.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): It is sometimes not worthwhile to fix things or fight for things. Fixing will only work for a short time. Fighting will only strengthen your opposition. Drop it and move forward.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Hungry people behave differently from satisfied people. Do what you can to feed your needs and wants, and you will avoid the pitfalls that ensnare those who hungrily take the bait.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It’s not that you need life to be constantly exciting, but you do your best to entertain yourself and others through some of the duller bits. This tendency will charm someone new today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The cure for low self-esteem is not to come up with a more reasonable estimation of what you can do. Rather, it’s to stop thinking you always have to “do.” You’re worthy just because you are.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Opinions aren’t facts. It’s easier to see this when the opinions in question are someone else’s. Examining your own thoughts is trickier.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Your sense of humor will be highlighted. What makes you funny is that you’re so in love with the truth, and you have a way of stating it that makes people laugh.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):Agreements that yield mutual satisfaction will be repeated, while unfair arrangements won’t work for very long.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Because you care so deeply for someone, you will knock yourself out in an effort to make this person happy.Today this won’t be easy, but not caring would be harder for you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Relationships have their ups and downs, and this is definitely a high point. Spending time with the one you love makes your heart feel so light that it’s as though your whole being is gravity-resistant.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Learning that happens slowly will stick with you. Take large endeavors in small chunks, and don’t stress over them. After a small amount of effort, put your tools down and let things seep in.
