Happy birthday. Love isn't the aim of your plan, but it's what will make pursuing your plan quite wonderful. The way you click with a certain person makes a whole lot else go smoothly. You'll push yourself physically and/or intellectually toward a difficult achievement. Play the long game on this one. Good fortune will be tied to ancestral guidance.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Unselfconsciousness can be very attractive until it happens to offend (and it will, because its very nature is a lack of concern for each person's individual opinions and rules.) But usually by then it's already won people over.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When you can't think of anything to make the situation better, the best thing to say is nothing at all. Let your compassionate heart lead you. If it leads you away from the drama, you won't be running, you'll just be staying out of it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): You stand by your people even when you know that they have behaved in ways that are less than ideal. Because they trust you, they won't be so defensive. Together you'll work toward solutions.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Today's theme: managing expectations. Your performance will set the bar. Better to make a credible attempt and fail than to nail every contest like a superhero, setting an unsustainable standard.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You were convinced of the truth and now you're starting to see things a little differently. It's not that you were lied to, it's just that the situation is more complex and nuanced than you were able to understand back then.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Take the attitude that "this is it" instead of expecting life to get better, which of course isn't how it works. Attitudes get better. Moods, other things too. But life -- life is the landscape. Take it on, and then you're the one who gets better.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You've been known to give care when people need it, so they gravitate to you for this time and again. You may think it's fine, as long as they also come to you when they're strong and ready to give back.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): When you clearly see how a thing is wrong, you'll speak to it. When you don't, why rush into a statement? You'll align with the qualities of stellar leadership by taking time to form a thoughtful response.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You've handed off a responsibility, necessarily so, and now you may be having second thoughts. But if the stakes aren't too high, the best thing will be to let people do what they can and learn from it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your hobbies and entertainments are well within your budget, so enjoy! As Henry David Thoreau said, "That man is the richest whose pleasures are the cheapest."

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Even the events that seem to belong comfortably in a timeline with a beginning and an end are actually part of an endless continuum of actions and consequences. You'll like how this section of the circle plays out.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Ward against interruptions before they happen. The little distractions may not seem like too much trouble to handle, but the adjustments you have to make to get back into your flow will take more time and energy than you think.
