TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 22). Your cosmic birthday gift is an answer. This is what will solve a big problem that prevents a hundred small ones. It’s also what will pave the way for you to advance other goals you haven’t been able to think about (or have yet to conceive) because you’ve been so busy running around trying to solve a hundred little problems. Aquarius and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 27, 30 and 11.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). With a deadline drawing near, you’ll have a choice. You can do it very well. You can do it on time. Or you can do it within the budget. Choose two. Only two are possible.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). What’s clear about today is that the issues of society are your issues, too. You almost feel your connectedness to the human race as a heavy responsibility, and perhaps that’s exactly right.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Quiet confidence is attractive. Arrogance is repellent. There’s a line to walk, and you walk it like a tightrope artist. Your genuine care for others will be like the long pole you use for balance.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can’t always make what you want to do and what you end up doing match. But today you can, and so, you should. It will be an important cornerstone win that you can build on.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If the needle of time could be set back to the beginning of the record, it would play the same song. So there is no need or use for longing, regret or wishing things were any other way than they are right now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Achilles had his heel. Sampson had his haircut. And you have your own version of a small vulnerability that has a disproportionately huge impact on your strength. Protect yourself accordingly.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll do something that makes perfect sense to you. Some of the others won’t understand. How could they? Without anything close to your experiences to draw from, puzzlement is natural. Believe in yourself. No need to explain.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Resisting peer pressure isn’t just hard; sometimes it can be downright unnatural. Humans are hard-wired to stick together! That’s why it’s so important to be around people with similar values who do the things you admire.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Love brings out the best in you. It makes you more creative, happier and more energetic. When you have to be strong for someone else, you’ll realize just how strong you really are.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You don’t always have the luxury of choosing what style you’ll receive your life in. Some things only come one way. The rarer a thing is, the fewer your options. Luckily, if you don’t like them, you’ll just do without.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). How many times can you read the same book, see the same movie or hear the same song before you’re sick of it? Yet there are works you can return to again and again — soul nutrition that you never tire of.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be uplifted by the camaraderie of people doing what you like to do. Whether it’s business, sport or art matters little. If you like it and they like it, you’ll all be lifted when you do it together.
