TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 23). You don’t set out to do things differently or be unique, it happens naturally as you get increasingly sensitive to your talent and contribute accordingly. Relationships blur lines, thus benefiting you in multiple ways. Working for a cause, you’ll be surrounded by like minds. Cancer and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 19, 3, 7 and 25.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Novelty is an actual human need and there’s physiological evidence for this. Ask new questions and make new demands of your routine in the name of seeing it fresh again.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Hope has a better memory than gratitude. People who want something from you give intense quality of attention than people who already get something from you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). At first the job seemed overwhelmingly cumbersome, and now it’s just a pain. Like a bodybuilder, you get stronger by handling this repeatedly. Soon it will be like a feather, and you’ll have amazing “muscles.”

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a mystery you need to root out, and it’s a layered one. Recognize when you’re not there yet and digg a little deeper.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll do a thing until it loses its appeal. You’re not fickle, rather it’s that time is precious and some practices get old faster than others.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When you interact with people, you try to give something useful. The trouble is that you don’t always know what’s useful. Today, just your being there will be useful enough.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). To live the life of your fantasies, you’ll need to erect and enforce certain boundaries. Cultivating dreams will take time — time that you won’t have unless you fiercely protect it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Discipline leads to freedom and freedom may create need, or longing, for discipline. Whichever part of the cycle you’re in right now, accept it and move toward your desire.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You develop your personality and in your calling on daily, sometimes in teensy increments, others in leaps. You’re adjusting to this last leap. Give yourself some time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are those who root for you to be your best — as long as it doesn’t surpass theirs. Relationship of this type have a short shelf life, ultimately cross a threshold.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you’re going to work on self-discipline, don’t do it for a boss, partner or for the good of anyone else. And know that this is noble work. There is no higher dominion than the dominion over your own impulses.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People are like the wind; they carry the good and bad qualities. There’s something about the climate you will want to rise above, so you seek purification.
