TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 3). You relate to others brilliantly, making them feel witty, accomplished and winning. This catapults you to popularity and political power. At times during this solar return, you will work too hard, but at least you’ll have a good time with it. Fun on the job will be a daily occurrence. You’ll make a big sale in May. Cancer and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 3, 33, 25 and 17.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The assumptions people make about you will usually tell you more about who they are than about who you are. So regardless of how favorable or unfavorable is the response you’re getting, do consider the source.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Relationships will be better without interference. Things improve when you stop listening to the advice of your resident know-it-all. Feel your way through.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s hard to see your own progress. Things may seem to be coming together more slowly than you would have liked. But what you’re doing will be super impressive to those who haven’t checked in on you in a while.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Even though you’ve been striving to do something more outrageous than what you wanted before, the little things are still what matter to you. A moment of connection will be the highlight of your day.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Shed your reservations; they won’t do you much good today. In other words, don’t hesitate to introduce yourself, ask your question or speak up about what you notice, and go in for the hug.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Things will trend in one direction, and quite logically at that. For instance, tensions will tend to compound on each other, or the opposite way will happen, wherein relaxation leads to laziness.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The powers that be push you to the brink of self-discovery. Your reactions are surprising to you. It’s true you were born with certain gifts and limitations. But ultimately, you decide who you are.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If someone had told you that this would be where you’d end up today, you wouldn’t have believed the person. Your relationship with a Cancer or Capricorn could help you make the most of the opportunity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Favored activities include doing business overseas, dealing in different languages or chatting up that mysterious person in your neighborhood who comes from far away.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The kind of clients and customers you desire want to work with people who have passion for the job. The more enthusiastic you are the more money you’ll make.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Will you get what you want? There are as many reasons you could as there are reasons you could not. So hope for the best and try your hardest. You’ll feel good about what happens, regardless of the outcome.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Simple and small goals will win the day. Reaching out to one person, committing to one project or making one phone call will make more of a difference than trying to do more.
