TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 26). There are people whose lives get better because of what you contribute this year, and that is a satisfying of feeling. The last part of 2017 focuses on honing your talents and economizing your life. There’s a burst of happy love at the beginning of 2018. Exciting, glamorous events punctuate your calendar. Libra and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 7, 20, 19 and 42.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). In ways you feel like you’re getting the respect you deserve, and in others it feels like too little too late. Why isn’t this enough? Maybe the attention is coming from the wrong person.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Pushing won’t make things happen any faster. Back off instead: That might work. People will want to rush to you when you give them a reason and then leave the right amount of space between you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can’t help but be curious, and your compassion makes it difficult for you to shut a door, therefore people will open up to you whether you want them to or not.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The fact-finding part of your mission could go on longer, but the law of diminishing returns would apply. You have all of the information you need.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Whatever game you choose to play, you’ll be good for the game. Your sportsmanship will bring out the best in opponents. You’re well-matched with Sagittarius and Aries.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your point of view isn’t wrong, though it may seem a little stale. You’ve seen things from this angle too long. Spin the globe. When it comes to worldviews, all reference points are relative.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Because you put care into the little things, people trust you with the big things. Attention to detail is what will make the difference.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Wrap up loose ends, a new chapter is opening up. You’re about to meet someone who will help you do the thing you’ve wanted to.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Smiles improve moods. Even fake ones. So does sunshine and hugs. Things that make you feel happier may seem corny, but don’t let that stop you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You appreciate agreeable people, but you’re more likely to trust those who disagree, it takes nerve to disagree with someone strong.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Choose words carefully. Semantics matter. That’s why car dealers advertise “pre-owned” instead of “used.” Which words give you an emotional advantage.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don’t have to work in “artistic” media to be considered an art. Love is an art. Walking is an art.
