TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 24). Once you give yourself permission to change, routines will get healthier. New friends will come. The main thing is not putting up with boredom. As you focus on people and projects that most interest you, your senses of connection and contribution increase and your level of happiness and well-being will soar. Aries and Gemini adore you. Lucky numbers are: 4, 44, 38, 17 and 5.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You were cunning because the situation required it. It would be unwise to speak of this. Impressive, but when cunning shows itself it arouses fear and mistrust.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Stay focused on the positive, and you’ll steer clear of a messy little bit of unnecessary drama that’s coming. The less people involved in that the better!

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It excites to create a plan and see it through. This is so exciting that you may forgo other exciting things like eating and sleeping until you see your desired result.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Astute questions will come to mind, like, “Why are you telling me?” and “What do you want?” Until you know a person’s motives, you won’t be sure of what role to play.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you can’t see clearly, the answer is not to look harder. You have to move. Maybe stand up, climb, go around or go where it’s less crowded. Keep trying new angles until you can see.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though you may have plenty to offer, don’t want come off as arrogant in your giving of it. Don’t merely present a humble attitude; adjust.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your attraction to the exotic leads to a place of uncertainty. Are you safe? Are you wanted here? What’s in it for you? These will be answered, explore.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Time, money and attention are valuable resources, and when they are given too freely, they become undervalued. Hold some back.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Relationships start casually. Standing in line, a minor transaction — that’s all it takes to feel that it would be good to know someone better.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are wide awake. To proceed cautiously in ordinary things will give you a great advantage. Also, there’s no greater proof of leadership.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re memorable. On the one hand, it means that you can make a message or agenda stick. On the other you must always be on your best behavior.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The amount of stress you feel will contribute to your decision-making process. You’re unlikely to repeat a series of actions that causes you anxiety, even for a big reward.
