TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 25). You know what you want, and this is no small statement. The clarity and confidence you bring to endeavors has everything to do with your being certain of your heart’s desire. The seas will part to herald your crossing. Relationships will fall into alignment as you create momentum toward your aim. You are unstoppable. Taurus and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 31, 5, 41 and 17.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re so qualified to contribute to the group, if not to lead it, and yet you tend to be quietly respectful, listening to all. If you hold back too much, then you’ll be depriving the group of one of its finest contributors.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A fierce urge to procrastinate will set in, but productivity can still win out if you’re ruthless enough. Do the dreaded thing first. Don’t give yourself choices or time to think about it. Just do it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Who gives your life meaning? You do. Some events just happen and some you create deliberately. Either way, the one who decides what they mean is always you.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). “One size fits all,” says the tag. Even so, sometimes one size fits none. In today’s case, a healthy dose of skepticism will keep you from believing generic advice which is wrong — for not just for you but for everyone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A situation has drifted into the realm of dysfunction and delusion, but it’s not too late to steer it back to the land of usefulness and facts. Start by sharing your honest observations about what’s going on right now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though you’re standing side by side with someone, you both took very different paths to get to that place. Learning another person’s path will be a highlight of your day.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You find deep gratification in paying it forward and will especially enjoy seeing your efforts have done a true service to others while knowing there will also be benefits you will never see.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Everything and anything worth having take time, effort and training. Your superstar move today will be to let admired ones know that you appreciate the amount of work that went into what they built.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The product is important but so is the presentation. If you don’t show it to the world in a way that lets it be seen in the right light, then you’re not making good on your work investment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Though you often know what you want, today you’ll be surprised to learn that you have aims you’ve kept a secret from yourself. You had your reasons, but now things have changed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have a tight, focused lens on your work and will see the details that matter and the flaws, too. Healthy criticism keeps you turning out a good product, but don’t cross the line into meanness. Be nice to yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The spotlight is also a target. The price of being in the center of attention is courage. Because no matter who you are, you’ll be vulnerable to a lot of different kinds of attention. It’s worth it if your purpose is strong enough.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 26). Like a ship making its way out of the fog, you are constantly moving toward greater clarity. Throughout this solar orbit, you will see those bright horizons and have success on distant shores. A financial boon provides the seed money for a daring venture. Networking and new relationships flourish in 2021. Aries and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 40, 44, 1 and 16.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your work will be elevated not by doing more of it, nor by doing it better, but by giving it better packaging and positioning it in the world so as to help people understand why what you do is important.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have that mysterious quality that is difficult to describe, but people know it when they see it. They are attracted. It’s about confidence but also vulnerability. It takes a lot of confidence to be vulnerable.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re in a position to state the facts. That’s what’s being asked of you. Some facts are more comfortable to state than others, but don’t let that get in the way of saying the truth.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re never completely in charge of who’s in your world or what they do there. You’ll give of yourself and the gift gets redistributed to the ones who need you most.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your intuition will come in the form of a wish. There’s something that seems just right for you, and as you send your wish out to the universe you are also attracting it with your powerful heart magnet.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You process and appreciate life with the heart of an artist, and you’ll turn your experiences into something tangible so that others can be delighted as well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A distraction-free block of time seems like a real luxury these days, though it’s a luxury that you could, with a little planning, have more often. This is the first in a string of ultra-productive days.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Instead of judging things as wrong or right, try thinking more in terms of “for me” and “not for me.” This frees up energy, as it requires much less thought, as you sense immediately which category things fall into.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will not be dealing with psychics today, and this may explain why people won’t know what you want or how to treat you until you tell them. Your clear, verbal communication will open doors.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You decide what counts as an accomplishment. It’s not for other people to tell you. If you did something small and strange that you’re none-the-less proud of, that counts. Scale doesn’t always match significance.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Institutions that support collectivist values survive on the sacrifice of individuality for the good of the group. Individual deviance from the group-focus will be suppressed. It’s nothing personal; it’s just how these things work.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are connected to others in ways beyond comprehension. You don’t mean for people to be overly influenced by your actions but, nonetheless, what you do today will cause a chain reaction.
