Horoscopes

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 15). Seek clarity, and you’ll find it. Understand where your power lies and how to use it: Delight and enjoyment will open as many doors for you as hard work and study. Trust yourself, and believe the forces are working to lift you and let you fly. Aries, Capricorn adore you. Lucky numbers are: 9, 20, 22, 1 and 17.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Though generations before you did things a certain way and the principles they used are still relevant, modern problems require you to build on that foundation. Acquire new tools in the weeks to come.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The best way to predict what happens next is the same as always: Make it happen. Today’s work may be a bit rushed, but it’s still remarkable if not as polished as it might have been had you more time.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The antidote to selfishness is publicity. Most would avoid the shame of being called out for putting one’s own interests before the interests of others — unless, selfishness is the cultural norm.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Is any creature built for empathy? It could be argued that empathy plays against survival instincts. It’s not the first instinct yet it’s required for survival.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Don’t wait until life forces you to sprint. Sprint to energize things, sprint to prove that you can. A good marathon runner builds the occasional sprint into the over-all plan.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re going to do the brave thing — not because you have less to lose but you realize that action is needed.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The situation triggers competitive instincts. It will be important to dress, talk and move like a winner. Much will come naturally, but some study may be involved.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You won’t be satisfied with just any result. You want your work to be artful and usefull. The thing is, you’re not the best judge of this today. Just turn it in.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The omens warn against selling your future for today’s quick fix, and yet fixing something quickly doesn’t always spell trouble. Examine options from a long-term perspective, do your best.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). In general, your life is easier when you make fewer promises. However things you do set up an expectation. The promises are implicit. And every one you keep builds trust.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). How you imagine yourself will define your position. What one person considers a position of weakness another may consider a position of strength.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As you climb the mountain to get a better view be more conspicuous to those below. This may not be your aim, but be aware that the beauty and knowledge you seek will make you more influential.
