CANCER (June 21 to July 22): You sense there are deals being cut from behind the scenes. Ask the person in charge what is go- ing on. You have a right to know what is at stake. The leader may not be able to give a direct answer, but his or her body language will speak volumes. Lucky number: 198.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): It’s time to deal with anxieties that have been holding you back. Why are you convinced things will not work out well for you? Who told you it is impossible to reach your goals? What are you getting from being stuck? Be willing to ask these difficult questions. Lucky number: 536.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): An unfavorable self-image is starting to lift. Get into the habit of monitoring your inner monologue.

It sounds simplistic, but this approach can be trans- formative. Lucky number: 264.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): It’s time to undertake responsibilities you have been avoiding. You’ll be asked to do something that makes you uncomfortable. While it’s easy to deal in the realm of facts and figures, it’s difficult to cope with emotional situations. Be prepared to deal with people who are highly upset. Lucky number: 293.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): A spiritual awakening is in the cards. You’ve been pondering what to do with your life.

Lucky number: 837.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): You’re undergoing a radical change, and it’s scary. Part of you wants everything to stay the same, but this simply isn’t possible. You’re being called to let down your defenses and become more intimate with a trustworthy person. Until you forge a closer bond, you’ll be spinning your wheels. Lucky number: 184.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): It’s important to be honest about a friend’s shortcomings. While you yearn for support in key areas, it simply isn’t forthcoming. You’ll have to meet these challenges alone. Don’t take out your disappointment on your partner. Everyone has blind spots, including you. Lucky number: 762.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): If some- one brings a problem to your attention, take it seriously. It’s better to revise a faulty project than push it through the pipeline. You will be blamed for any failures. When you make mistakes, admit them. Offer sincere apologies to those who were adversely affected. Lucky number: 376.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Secrets are coming to light. Although this information makes you self-conscious, it’s important to admit your hopes and fears. Helpful people will come forward to support you. Too often, you retreat to the shadows at the first sign of trouble. By resisting this impulse, you’ll finally get the assistance you need to succeed. Lucky number: 204.

ARIES (March 21 to April 20): A family situation reaches a critical point. It’s time to get help for a relative who is in a compromising situation. It doesn’t matter whether it’s finding the right medical care, appropriate housing or re- habilitation services. Acknowledge this situation is beyond your control. Lucky number: 862.

TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): Tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. You’re tired of pretending people are doing the best they can. When they come up with things that make no sense, speak up. It’s better to go on record as being opposed to a terrible plan than carrying out these orders. Lucky number: 451.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): It’s time to improve your financial situation. It doesn’t matter whether this means increasing your income, eliminating debt or putting money into savings. The important thing is to take an unemotional look at your bank account and make corrections. Just because you are not materialistic does not mean you are irresponsible. Lucky number: 249.
