TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 20). This solar trip sees you embracing more facets of yourself. As you learn and integrate different aspects of your personality, even ones you used to reject, you become ultimately more powerful, loving and capable. The excitement of the next 12 months will include an envied invitation, some upscale living and a water journey. Cancer and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 14, 4, 49 and 30.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Many who consult an advisor will only heed the advice if it’s what they already were planning to do. This isn’t the open attitude that leads to the best choices. You’re different. You’ll decide not to decide and go into things ready to listen.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll be productive and, even better, your influence is potent now, so the things you work on and make will have an impact. This is a good time to carefully consider what you want that impact to be.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You sense what people would like to believe about themselves and, if it aligns well within you, you’ll support the notion. And maybe their vision is also the truth, or will become the truth with the right support.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The artistic types around you will inspire you to draw up something from your own creative well. That well isn’t filled with just one thing. There’s sweetness, bitterness and lots of emotion.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It never works out to have so much respect for your idols and superiors that there’s none left over. The trick is in having great respect for all but to start with you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You believe that it’s better to be friendly than cool. It’s more important to treat people well and be agreeable than to have elevated status due to superior taste and means. Cold elitism is boring.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Just as the long arm of the law correlates with the leg span of criminality run amok, your own resources for self-control will grow to match the wildness inside. You can trust life’s balance system today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Though it’s an unconscious process, you train people how to talk to you with what you respond to and how. Talk can be a powerful reward, as can a certain kind of look, laugh and warmth.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). All things have their own ebb and flow. Even seemingly permanent landscape features such as mountains and canyons were once something else. The same goes for your emotional landscape.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). To breathe deeply is to accept a miraculous gift. Don’t wait until the stress bunches up or until living demands more oxygen. Take the gift now. It will elevate what’s normal to the realm of the exquisite.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). While most people, for various reasons, take a degree of effort to be with, there are those who feel as comfortable to be near as your favorite T-shirt. Seek them out today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You only tease the ones you know and love best. You understand the level that will entertain and endear them. Even so, go carefully today because it will be so easy to miss the mark.
