TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 26). Your instinct is to be generous with others and kind in your view and treatment of others. You’ll now extend that approach to the very heart of destiny and the universe at large. You’ll note all the good points the universe is making without resistance. A wave of abundance carries you and all you love forward. Leo and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 22, 1, 44, 47 and 3.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s hard to tell how deep muddy water is. It’s better not to guess or take chances. Let things settle so you can see the bottom. If they don’t settle, don’t cross. Some territory is best avoided altogether.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To know a person is to accurately predict what’s going to set them off, please them or bond them to you. If you get it wrong, don’t worry; the error will actually be a shortcut to a more intimate acquaintance.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If wisdom were a needle in a haystack, you’d find it. It’s like you’re magnetized to the knowledge you most need and want. Precious insights could come from anywhere, from gutters, gardens, volumes or vaults.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When you can hang out with the people you delight in, you’re living the good life. And if the delight is running low, get out and meet new people because you make friends very easily these days.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You cannot get where you want to go by thinking yourself there. You need to move, talk to people face to face and put yourself in the thick of the action where you can really feel what’s going on.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Beauty has power. Furthermore, when your senses are open (today), so are your emotions. You’ll experience a strong feeling in association with a scent, taste or color.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have your eye on a lofty goal, yet it is quite within the realm of possibility. You’re ready to get honest about what’s working and what’s not. Shame and blame have no place in your practical plan.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Self-doubt is the enemy of imagination. Trust and lean further into your creativity. Pretend like you’re on an improvisation team with your own thoughts. Agree with and build on the goodness there.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some say all you really own in this life is yourself. Even that can seem either reductive or, in moments where your own impulses and actions get away from you, a huge stretch.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you’ve been underestimating a person, that ends with an awakening. Circumstances will either force or inspire people to show different sides of themselves.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Forget about what’s yours and what’s not. That matters a lot less than the general usefulness of a thing. Can it be played with, leveraged or traded? It doesn’t have to belong to you to be able to use it well.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People like to hear about things that pertain to them, and some have a short attention span for what doesn’t. Success will depend on aiming your stories accordingly.
