TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 19). You’re no longer trying to do the right thing. It is all you can do, as you’re aligned with truth and beauty, the best sort of rut. Compassion will bring what ambition couldn’t — satisfaction, peace and certainty. When it’s your moment in the sun, revel. Don’t be too quick to hand off your joy. Cancer and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 7, 22, 28 and 45.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). New factors change the way you view relationships. You’ll learn and understand people with more clarity. It’s not good or bad, it’s just a deeper knowledge that requires a more complex and nuanced approach.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Persuasion should be unfelt. The minute you feel it, is the minute it ceases to have influence. Use this principle for relationships of all kinds. It will apply across the board.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are things in life you can’t change. To accept that is to accept adulthood as immature ideas of power fall away to more practical and cooperative mental frameworks.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re versatile. You can exist as a contributing and interdependent member of a group, or as a separate and self-supporting entity. You can be perfectly happy either way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have no idea what people are going through until you ask. But asking seems nosey. You don’t want to intrude, and don’t want to be denied information. So you observe.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are people who really do understand you. You realized this the moment your heart lit up and your blood pulsed a little faster. Yes, to be understood is a thrill!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes benefits come because deficits do not. Prevention is better than medicine because it makes medicine null and void.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Recharge your battery. Like some modern batteries, yours is fast on the uptake. Once you lug in, you’ll become energized in no time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Pay attention, focusing on only one task at a time. A slip of the finger is all it takes to send an accidental email, erase your work or worse. Stay alert and all will go well.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your idea about the future clashes with your cohort, and this produces a third version, that pleases neither and also offends neither. Stuff to hash out in the future.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You know what your own pressures are. You’ll give a thought to the pressures that others face and experience a feeling of being impressed, inspired, jealous, humbled and a myriad of other things…

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re an adventurer, and adventure will come with adversity. The adversity is always something to handle first. Get it over with, and your entire day will be better.
