On this, the last day of the Aquarius solar sojourn, Mars angers Neptune and the sun sidles up to Mercury, who flees hours later into the sign of the fish. What does it mean? That dreams change once you get a whiff of what’s really actionable. That you can walk the walk and talk the talk, but ultimately the only person you need to convince is you.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 17). Love will have a daily impact on your life. You’ll make sacrifices for your people and your interests will get served, too. Being redirected will bring wonderful results in the spring, so respect obstacles and take detours. There’s a payout in May. What you spend to get business going will come back to you. Virgo and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 8, 44, 28 and 11.ARIES (March 21-April 19). Why does it have to make sense to be valid? It doesn’t! “Making sense” isn’t a universal law like gravity or motion. In fact, much of what works won’t make sense today, and much of what makes sense won’t work.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). In the way that big moves require the packing and transfer of many small boxes, big projects will have you working in a world of details. By the day’s end, you’ll have “packed” about a hundred “boxes.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The omens say your energy increases as you trust your inner light. The more practical voices are pretty sure it’s dark inside of your body, as it should be, but you can get your energy going with exercise under the outside light.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have a gift for discerning between what’s necessary and what’s not. This will be valuable to you and perhaps even more valuable to others who are struggling with focusing on the wrong things. Don’t hesitate to help them out.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Success is not an achievement. Success is a feeling. If you don’t allow yourself to feel successful until a certain metric has been met, that’s a choice and not a fact based on the rules of success. Feelings don’t follow rules.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your life could take many different directions from here. As you entertain possibilities (even just in your imagination), you’ll be joined by flashes of memory and ghost guides from the past.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You don’t have to believe in reincarnation to understand that you’ve already lived many lives in this lifetime and you will live many more. So what do you need to do to become your next version? Don’t worry. You’ll become it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are amazing talents around you and here’s hoping you’ll use them as inspiration instead of comparison. You are quite capable of your own kind of greatness, and that’s a very good place to put your focus.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). And your picture of life won’t look anything like your neighbor’s because even though you connected the very same dots, you didn’t do it in the very same order.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Respect lasts longer than attention. Those who make a grab for the spotlight without delivering something of real value soon lose their audience and their credibility with you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Anyone exerting pressure on you to make the best choice (most likely you’re the guilty party here) simply doesn’t realize there is no best choice. Many are good. All will lead to the future.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s said that you can never be overeducated, and yet you wonder if you’d be better off not knowing some things. What’s there to do is to learn even more about it. Because the wider picture will be somehow more palatable.
