Aries (March 21-April 19) -- Today is a 9 -- When others succeed, you succeed. Work together and make magic. You enter a one-month review period. Return to basics. Add humor to reduce stress.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) -- Today is an 8 -- For the next four weeks, focus on your special bond with friends. Creative projects undergo revision while Saturn is in retrograde. Add love.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) -- Today is a 9 -- You're hot and only getting hotter; resistance is futile. You're going to have to accomplish the wonderful things you've been wanting, even in the face of cynicism. Just do it.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Now is not the time to overextend. Slow and steady wins the race, but you don't even have to enter the competition. Take it easy and meditate. Watch out for travel surprises.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- Stay home instead of going out. You don't have to explain it yet. For the next month, your partner can be a great leader. Support and follow.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today is a 7 -- You'll be most effective working with and through others. Start finishing up old business, one piece at a time, and invent something new.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today is an 8 -- You may want to back up your data, as Mercury goes retrograde soon (on Feb. 23). During this next phase, you're extremely creative. Spend time with a loved one.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Today is a 6 -- There's not quite enough for something you want. Make the best with what you have for now, which is plenty. You're lucky in love.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Today is a 9 -- Use your common sense and gain respect. Focus on home and family. Going back to basics brings some freedom and relaxation, even more than imagined.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Today is a 9 -- Clear up misunderstandings as they happen to avoid making a mountain out of a dirt clod. For the next month, you'll do well financially, if you can keep from spending it all.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Today is an 8 -- Confront old fears to make them disappear. Your natural genius flourishes. It's not a good time to travel, though. A fabulous opportunity appears. Bask in it.
