TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 24). It’s been a while since you saw serene circumstances, but this year brings several moments of peace and beauty. You’ll appreciate them because of the bustle and hard work in other moments. There will be five gatherings, meaningful to your group and your legacy. Libra and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 3, 39, 6 and 12.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Curiosity a most useful talent, as it will lead to experience wonder, triumph, satisfaction and dissatisfaction. (Those last two will be equally important.)

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’re good at uncovering facts, hearing facts through the fiction and giving facts in an unbiased way. Today’s talent for truth will make you an invaluable.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have developed some mental tricks to help get around obstacles, avoid conflict and rise above trouble. You may not even be aware of how you do this, but someone will notice and follow your lead today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). None of the saints were canonized for counting other’s sins. Those who focus on the sins of others are making sin their focus.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It is possible to train your mind to be stronger than emotions. Seek this kind of mastery. Clearly, emotions run amok do not contribute to what you’re trying to build.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The temptation to share prematurely will be there. Exciting things are coming together but it’s still early. Work quietly, later your success will speak for you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some people are easier to be around than others, but that doesn’t make a relationship correct. An uncomfortable relationship can be the greatest teacher on earth, inspiring your highest and quickest evolution.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). From a distance, the rolling fog is mysterious, beautiful, mystical… but when you’re in the thick of it, it can be disorienting. Seek higher mental ground. Avoid perplexity by rising above.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Seeing the problems that really exist isn’t pessimism. This is a form of optimism. If you didn’t think there might be something to be done about it, you wouldn’t have the guts to see it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The creative process is your joy. The products that come of it can bring fleeting satisfaction but it’s almost unmentionable in comparison with the feeling that comes from being in the flow.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may not have all the skills you need to make something happen yet, but you’re getting them. Try again. Keep a record of your efforts so you can avoid making the same mistake twice.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). While joy feels better, sadness can be beautiful. It can wash over you and make you appreciate and value your life.
