ARIES (March 21-April 19). Unless this story is a melodrama, the hero won’t be the seemingly perfect character who always does what’s right, and the villain won’t be sheer evil, either. The hero is flawed but bold. The villain is well-meaning but ill-advised.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your needs, wants and future projections are changing. Don’t be intimidated by accounting! You’re probably doing fine, but you won’t really know until you shore up the short-term gains against the long-term costs.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The mind at work won’t be a tight essay or neat math problem; rather, it will resemble a rambling, shapeless amoeba gaining organization as it finds the direction of growth. In other words, be patient. The ideas are still forming.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are certain qualities that are more universally attractive than others. Still, there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to love. Generic attributes aside, affinity will be created through your individual intelligence and sparkle.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). On your way to fun and success you’ll blow past obstacles that used to stop you. Maturity is realizing that most inconveniences are not catastrophes and unfortunate events don’t define you or automatically dictate your mood.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Growth is uncomfortable. It entails understanding what you couldn’t conceive, feeling what you’ve never felt, doing what you haven’t done. Be patient in these early stages. Maybe this whole lifetime is just one long early stage.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). No one gets into the boxing ring without getting punched. No one gets into pool without getting wet. The correct time to be aware of the tone of a place and the game that’s being played there is before entering.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When dealing with yourself, try and provide the same atmosphere of warmth you so hospitably use in your approach to others. It will make change less scary. The change most needed is small, specific and personal.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re large and in charge sitting at the royal throne of your life, and yet you realize, as most rulers do, much that happens in your kingdom is beyond your control. Calmly handle what can be handled.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There’s an art to giving and receiving. Wasted is the opportunity given to one who is ignorant of its significance. If you’re going to ask for more of anything today, ask for more wisdom. You just might get more happiness, too.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Professionals see rejection as inevitable. Superstars see rejection as a skill. When you’re good at rejection you learn more, take the idea to more people, pitch more and ultimately succeed more.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Like most people, most of the time you’re the one on your mind. Hey, taking care of your own needs and happiness serves all. That said, the hours you spend focusing on someone else’s enjoyment will be the best of the day.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 17). Truly your life is becoming more beautiful. Social stars are rising. Love is at the helm. You’ll invite people to visit your work and living space, which will inspire new designs and systems. November brings promotion. You’ll spend on yourself in 2018 (without guilt!) and the investment pays in unexpected ways. Taurus and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 18, 44, 9 and 12.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Widely considered to be the greatest actor of his time, Robert De Niro mixes fire-sign passion with a workman approach to his craft. The Leo master was born under an artistic Pisces moon and has natal Mercury and Venus in Virgo, the sign of industriousness and growth. This fall De Niro will go to war with his grandchild over a shared bedroom in the family comedy “The War With Grandpa.‘’

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You didn’t have to do any special conscious thinking to grow yourself to this level of human development, and you can’t think your way into, or out of, the next phase either. So just relax! Breakthroughs will happen naturally.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Luckiest move: Make an agreement with life. For the next 24 hours you’ll give it your all and expect nothing in return. You’ll be an enthusiastic servant to the fates and the spirit of goodness itself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re just not in the mood to compromise. Some would call it stubborn. The bottom line is that you really want your way, and you’ll dig your heels in about it, too. Anyone wanting to negotiate would be better off trying in a few days.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Two people stand in the same place: One of them is lost; the other is home. The shift from lost to found is one of accepting a place and getting to know it instead of rejecting it as somewhere other than where you’re supposed to be.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Do you believe that there are some people you were meant to know? The fates don’t seem to be acting as efficient social directors these days, so you’re going to have to take it into your own hands. Mingle.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your imagination and creativity are exceptionally strong today, and you can point them in the direction of fleshing out a task in a way that only you can. You’ll make yourself indispensable.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If an actor were to play you in the movie version of your story, what defining characteristics and behaviors do you think would be the focus for this current period? A bit of objectivity will help you see how you can be more powerful in your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your brain fills in blanks constantly throughout the day, so much faster than you’re even aware of. Create habits of mind to stay positive. Here’s a good one: “I’m happy because . . .‘’

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The world is full of egomaniacs, and you feel a personal responsibility to counter that with selflessness. Check your motives, though. If you’re yielding to others so that they’ll approve of you, you’re not really helping anyone.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you deprive yourself of what you want, you’ll be all the more attracted to what’s on the ‘'restricted’‘ list. Your best bet will be a strategy of distraction. What totally different thing might you do to interrupt this pattern?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Relationships get complicated. Love gets messy. Romance disappoints. You wonder if it’s worth the hype. Pull away to gain perspective—a positive and restorative choice. The turn is coming. Love is worth the effort.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just because someone is happy with what you are doing, that doesn’t necessarily make it right for you. People’s approval can be fickle, impermanent and certainly nothing to base your sense of self on.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 16). You’ll change simple and small behaviors and get incommensurately favorable results. It turns out that your healthy choices don’t affect only you. As you do the things that help you command good energy, you’ll improve your career, family and social ties in the process. There are domestic upgrades in March. Libra and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 45, 20, 21, 32 and 38.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Last month Madonna and the humanitarian organization Raising Malawi announced the opening of the only pediatric surgery and intensive care hospital in Malawi. The material girl has turned a great deal of her wealth, attention and effort to helping children around the world. Madonna’s natal chart is striking for the overwhelming number of planets in her 12th house, which signifies that she’s a powerful creator of all she imagines.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know what you’re best at, right? If you’re still stuck on that, here’s a hint: It’s either the opposite of what you’re worst at, or it’s the same thing, just a different facet of it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s said that happiness is a way of traveling. You certainly carry it with you today, a hum of vitality that lends a quickness to your stride, a playfulness to your approach.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Beware: There are some things (and people) that are very difficult to experience in moderation. You have but the smallest amount and they leave a hunger inside you for more, more, more.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s so much easier for a relationship to develop if there’s an outside structure, such as church, school or work, that keeps people in contact. Alas, if you like a person enough you’ll invent reasons to get together.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just when you think there’s nothing new under the sun, the cosmic DJ comes along to mix up what’s already there in such a wondrous way as to make everything seem fresh.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Think of everything you want in life as a moving target. The way to reach the goal is not by aiming at it, but by aiming beyond it. And don’t be surprised if you need greater effort, sharper skill and more resources than first calculated.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People laugh at clowns and people laugh at geniuses. It is sometimes hard to tell the difference between the two, if there is any. Some foolishness is pure folly. Then again, folly is often what leads to the breakthrough.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll want to make a powerful impression. Go slower. Move less. Be still. People who are still are thought of as poised. Composure shows restraint and confidence.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don’t worry so much about what you’re going to say. Your silence, when it is full of supportive, heroic and/or loving intent, is more desirable than beautiful music.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You like giving gifts. It energizes you. So it’s wonderful that today you’ll be so filled with the intent of service that your work won’t feel like a job; rather, it will feel like a gift you’re giving.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve helped others and now they want to repay you. Maybe you’d prefer they didn’t. Maybe you don’t need repayment. Accept it graciously anyway, as all will feel better when this giving cycle is complete.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Before you rush to sign up and learn, consider going at it without training for a while. In fact, maybe you should wait as long as you can to learn the rules. If you don’t know what can or can’t be done, you’ll be creatively free.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 15). The forces of felicity fall in love with your attitude and gumption. You’ll transfer the knowledge you’ve gained from things that didn’t quite hit for you in the past into new ventures with a higher probability of success. See, nothing you’ve done has been a loss. Developments with family will inspire a move or travel in 2018. Cancer and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 1, 7, 12 and 3.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: As evidenced by the “Star Trek” character Jaylah, Jennifer Lawrence has achieved such career ubiquity that she now stars in movies she’s not even in. Lawrence was born when Venus, the love and beauty planet, was in Leo, the sign of show business. Her moon is in quick-witted Gemini. “J-Law” is likely to rule this Halloween box office season in the horror film “Mother!“

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When you work alone there is less to distract you. You can focus and be prolific. However, solo work does bring with it a danger of becoming limited in perspective. Reach out periodically for different opinions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Instead of giving a person the benefit of the doubt, you do something more radically generous: You leave the doubt out altogether and give the entire benefit. In other words, you give all.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be attracted to strange scenes. If it doesn’t look like anything you’ve experienced, you want to sign up. You could find love, friendship, adventure or work by mingling in a new place.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You can make something out of nothing. This ability will amaze people. When “nothing” is the main ingredient, the result has endless possibilities. No one knows what it’s going to be today, least of all you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As an empathetic person, you acutely feel the pleasure and pain of others. Not everyone has this gift. Some simply can’t relate to how others are feeling. That’s why your talent will be so needed and appreciated today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may be reluctant to talk about yourself today. You see life as a creative process, not a series of trophies to be toted out for company. Anyway, the most impressive thing will be that you don’t feel a need to impress.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). In today’s case there are no adversaries, just people addressing individual needs. If you can get to the common ground and work together, it is possible you could find a solution that allows all to win.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Happiness will come in the realization that you’ve accomplished what you set out to do. For this reason, making small goals that are achievable within the day will be the joyful choice.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The numbers add up – then fly by and blow out of the grasp of memory. Write down the time, costs, contact info and other relevant numbers to prevent having to chase them down later.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Remember, the backup is only a backup if there’s another copy of it. In the case where the original is no longer a viable option, be sure to back up the backup.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Steer clear of the battle. This is not a day to join the fight. For starters, there is no winning side. Also, after the warring parties make up, they’ll shift the blame to others involved in the conflict.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You feel your feelings at full strength now, but it’s not such a good idea to show it. People will be frightened by intensity, and frightened people run the other way. But there’s great and attractive power in restraint.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 14). It all happens rather quickly for you in the first three months of this solar return, a result of your wishes being aligned perfectly with the wishes of the universe. Whatever was keeping a relationship from progressing will be lifted. Love spills out into other parts of your life. Creative works and children will spawn travel. Aquarius and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 30, 33, 38 and 41.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: This holiday season, Mila Kunis will reprise her role in “Bad Moms” with “A Bad Moms Christmas,“ all while enjoying being a good mom of two with Aquarius counterpart Ashton Kutcher. Leo is the sign of children, and family life can be extremely fulfilling for Leos on many levels, including professionally. Playful by nature, children tend to broaden Leo’s range into new levels of creativity.
