Segal’s law suggests, “A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never sure.” The adage has holes (one watch could be just as wrong as two watches), and it certainly applied better before precise standards of time were readily available to anyone with a cellphone. But the point is that this is no time to introduce doubt.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (March 16). For the next three months, there’s important work you’ll do inside yourself and out of the public eye. This is laying the groundwork. Suddenly, you’ll feel like sharing. You’ll touch lives and change the established order. On a practical level, a move of convenience will turn out brilliantly for your domestic flow. Virgo and Aries adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 40, 20, 1 and 15.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Stealing attention is an act of real theft. Attention is the true value of life. Surround yourself with honest people, not robbers who will devalue your efforts by drawing attention away from you and toward them.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Trust and keep working. The change is coming. Your process will go from weeks of fearful, uncertain struggles to a new era of fully informed, powerfully purposeful, smooth and meaningful days.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). People who ask you questions and get really interested in how you are may also have big news to share themselves — news you’ll never learn until you boomerang the conversation.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). While you know that your work matters, and that you matter, you’d like a little more in the way of daily signals around you to remind you of this. There’s something wholesome you can do to get better mojo flowing through your life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your money is the absolute cheapest thing you can put “where your mouth is” today. Your work is worth way more than that and so is your attention and time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The principle of inertia suggests things will maintain their current state of activity (or nonactivity) until something stronger comes along. In today’s case, you’ll keep buzzing along until overtaken by a profound need for sleep.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There are the lucky few who get encouraged along life’s path before they do anything of merit. Mostly though, it happens in reverse. Most must do many, many things of substance before the rest of the world finally catches on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Why be quietly ashamed or try to hide your mistakes when you can call them out, examine them and learn from them? Everyone makes them, even those regarded as the best among us.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may have an inner child, but you also have an inner babysitter today. Maybe it’s not as strict as the parental units, but it’s still in charge of making sure you hit all the basics.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The hard and dirty work is something to do yourself because it also happens to be the work that will most keep you aware, awake, strong and on-purpose.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The day’s events will remind you how your decisions affect others. You don’t always want them to, but that’s just how it works for someone as connected to the fiber of your community as you are.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll find the amusement and levity of life. This won’t be hard, because there’s a sympathetic resonance in you that rings out when you’re anywhere near funny people.
