VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).

Things are done a certain way, but the norms go out the window when someone special contributes. You’ll be that special person today and the rules will bend to accommodate your ideas and fresh take.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You have ideas and the guts to be a leader as well. Speak up and you’ll gain support. Your exceptional intuition about people will be tested. It is possible that the one who is charming and flattering is also sincere at heart.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Talented people cannot always bridge the social gap in a way that lets them share their talents. You will use your social gifts to help someone connect and navigate a world that would be very difficult for them, if not for your guidance.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A conflict between your head and your heart can be mediated by the imaginary judge of your conscience. Set the stage for a negotiation in your mind. Introduce the topic, then sit back and observe the discussion that follows.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Success is simple. You determine the goal then do the work. You may be worried about doing things right, but there is no right way, only a wrong way: going in circles. Consistently move in one direction and you’ll get there.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

When others worry, you can clearly see how unnecessary it is, but of course it’s difficult to have objectivity with your own worries, which seem somehow much more valid. Choose optimism.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s not your style to make many demands, so when you do make requests, people really listen to you. You’re not just thinking about you. You’re thinking about the bigger picture and what might be helpful for all going forward.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Education doesn’t happen overnight. It may feel like you’ll never learn enough to do a job easily, or that you just can’t satisfy your curiosity. But finding out where the holes in your knowledge are is essential to filling them in.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20).

Instead of waiting around to be invited, assigned or permitted, you’ll just make the move. It’s risky, and not always the most effective way to go about things, but it will work great for you today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21).

A clash of personalities may have you feeling edgy and out of sorts. As inconvenient and uncomfortable as this may be, there are benefits to the relationship that are not yet apparent. Your soul is evolving through these lessons.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

You will choose colleagues for their ability, honesty and loyalty. But when it comes to friendship, you’ll go for the ones who make you laugh and feel. You’ll let someone into your heart, though you fully realize it will change you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).

You’re so busy trying to serve everyone else that you just may forget all about what you want out of the situation. Take a breather to think about it, and possibly even write a list so you don’t accidentally leave yourself out.
