ARIES (March 21-April 19). What gives the others a right to command your time? It's not a "what;" it's a "who, and the "who" is you. Your time is yours and, arguably, among the most precious things you own. You'll deliberate before giving it away.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Where you want to be is not so different from where you stand, but great courage is still needed to rise up and make the few key changes necessary to get there.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Maybe it's not fair that people expect more of you than they do of others, but it's only because you keep doing such a fantastic job, raising that bar to new levels.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Happy relationships seem to come so easily to some. Then again, who really knows? Everyone has a public and private face. The only way to really find out what's going on in the inside of a relationship is to tend to your own.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Clutter isn't just a little mess to be cleaned up whenever; it's a representation of disorder and wonky alignment. Cleaning it up, even a little, will cause seemingly unrelated and magical good fortune.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're starting to think of things in their broader context. You're seeing how they relate and affect their environment, what they are connected to and what they cannot do without. New insights come from this big-picture thinking.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Ask a scientist -- the act of observing changes what's observed. You can't interact without influencing the situation. But with a quiet, neutral approach, you might glimpse the version that was there before you arrived.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). One way to stop worrying is to write things down. Make lists. Make a list of things you can control about the situation and, just to remind yourself, another list of things you can't.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You made your choice. Or did you? It felt like a semiautomatic response to your environment motivated by basic human needs like survival, identity and belonging. Can you really be credited or blamed for that?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Like an elevator in a high rise, you have many buttons to push. And people who push a lot of buttons are going to have a very slow ride to where they need to go.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Because you're so creative, you can make sense of the illogical, find links between seemingly unrelated things and weave together disparate ideas -- all skills that will serve you well over the next three days.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're not always inclined toward the spiritual advice to meditate, pray or seek enlightenment. There are practical ways to get to the same place. Anything that helps you grow as a person also expands your spirit.
