To get the advantage, check the day's rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.


Aries (March 21-April 19) — Today is a 5 — Align minds and hearts to work closely with a partner. Take advantage of a shared dream. Money causes problems if you go in separate directions.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Today is a 5 — Anxiety increases if you focus too closely on what others are doing. Instead, try working with one partner for maximum productivity.


Gemini (May 21-June 21) — Today is a 6 — Almost everyone is on the same wavelength concerning a major social event. There's plenty of love to go around and extra hands to make it happen.

Cancer (June 22-July 22) — Today is a 5 — Your attention divides between household matters and a lucky travel opportunity. You can only take one person with you, unless you pay personally.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is a 5 — You get important news from an unusual source. This person rarely sticks to the facts, so take what they say with a grain of salt. Sift for the gold.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 7 — A close associate surprises you with ideas you never expected to hear from that direction. Take time to consider. What seems unworkable only needs a tweak.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 6 — There seems to be an increase in the internal chatter volume, like an oncoming train. Count to ten, then decide whether to board. You could just play the radio.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) — Today is a 5 — Your best ideas will emerge from the consideration of a recent dream or quiet contemplation. Share your visions with a favorite person and take notes.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — Today is a 6 — Get together with one other person in secret to develop your plan. Make a group announcement to share your views only after both of you agree.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Today is a 5 — Career efforts move in your direction now. Wait until tomorrow to begin your next push. Group members come on board by then.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — Today is a 6 — Even though others seem tense or worried, you can relax. Share your cheerfulness and optimism. It's contagious, and they really need it now.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Today is a 6 — You get a bright idea that upsets the plans of others. At first, they fuss. But soon they relax into a new perspective. Aren't you lucky?
