TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 29). Your brightest ideas will be totally unrelated to what you were searching for. Cash in on them in June and October. In August you’ll climb to a peak and realize there’s another, taller hill to climb. There goes your plan for a never-ending party at the top. Luckily, you’ll thoroughly enjoy the climb: That’s the real party. Leo and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 6, 30, 22 and 16.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Taking care of small details will bring disproportionately substantial satisfaction. Tonight: More good things happen when you just say yes.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are a lot of things about your life that you cannot instantly change. That’s why it’s so satisfying today to change what you can. This will have to do with something in your environment, or on your person.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There may be a clash between what is said and the attitude with which it is said. Believe the strongest indicator. Sometimes it will be words; sometimes it will be deeds. Which seems more prevalent?

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When wishful thinking is dashed, this sets off a minor mourning process. Face it; feel it, and the pain will quickly resolve itself. Mourning is natural; it’s just healing at a different tempo. This won’t take long, and you’ll be stronger for it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Think back on past pain and even your best recollection will be a distortion, courtesy of your mental defenses. Don’t let this illusion trick you into going in for another round of what you know isn’t good for you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A line will be drawn. Is it a path to follow — or a barrier that is not to be crossed? You’ll be answering such questions and making decisions about the path that’s best for you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You sometimes feel like a child pretending to be a professional instead of the pro you are. Rest assured: This is common. Most of your colleagues have felt the same way at one time or another.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Quiet confidence will be your hallmark today. You’re the sign of mystery, privacy and intrigue. With stoic solidity you will command a full and serious quality of attention today.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Who is your audience? Target your market. Know what impact you want to create and on whom. Once you figure this out, there are many choices that will become very easy for you to make.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Listen to what people say when they tell you about themselves. On a related note, there are many secrets that will hide in plain view today. You’re awake, and so you’ll learn.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll revel in the attention of a person who really gets you. Try to take this connection in a creative direction. It will be fun to make things with someone who has a similar aesthetic or at least appreciates yours.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll keep a cool head while you put out one fire after another. You don’t want to continue spending your days like this, and that’s why you need to figure out who the “arsonist” is.
