Today’s Birthday (04/01/13).

Increase community activity with friends, siblings and neighbors. It keeps you connected, and communications thrive until June, when your energy shifts towards home improvement. Check insurance coverage, and stay flexible. 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 9 — It could get foolish; work causes delays, so call if you’ll be late. Consider what’s best for home and family, and work it out.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) —

Today is a 9 — Think, then talk. Work on the big picture first. The more you plan, the more you profit. Hold on to your money for now.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) —

Today is an 8 — If you don’t find out, ask again. You’re in a state of disruption … there’s some chaos. Travel or send packages later. Visit a partner who provides inspiration.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) —

Today is a 9 — Use your persuasive skills. Be brief, however, if it costs you money. Emotions are all over the map. There’s more work coming; pace it carefully, as there’s danger of breakage.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) —

Today is a 9 — Don’t gamble, discuss money or play the fool. Provide excellent service, and make a good impression. Confidence enters the workplace, though costs may be higher than expected. Areas that seem stuck move later.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) —

Today is a 7 — Acknowledge considerations, and provide for others. Get a friend to intervene, if necessary. Put energy into creative projects, and test out the new playbook.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) —

Today is an 8 — You tend to overestimate your powers and underestimate costs. Everything seems possible. The more old projects that you finish, the more new ones arise. Pad the budget for the unexpected, and ask for help.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) —

Today is a 9 — See friends later; work is busy. Be prepared to cheer your team. Past efforts represent you well. Think quickly while moving slowly. Conserve resources by sending someone else ahead.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) —

Today is an 8 — There may be a setback or temporary confusion. Accept enthusiastic coaching. Reassure someone who’s uncertain. Something planned is no longer necessary. Don’t mention everything you know or suspect, yet.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) —

Today is a 9 — Review details and postpone travel as complications arise. Acknowledgment comes from an unexpected direction. Notice your wealth, with gratitude.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) —

Today is a 9 — A distress call comes in. Use something you’ve been saving. Ask for more, and say please. Turn down an expensive invitation or risky plan. Keep track of finances.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) —

Today is a 9 — Don’t make expensive promises or believe everything. There’s another test: Challenge authority to get the truth. Keep pursuing a dream. It’s easy to work alike with a partner.
