CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll be around physical beauty and intellectual beauty, both equally attractive at first. However, over time, intellectual beauty may grow as quickly as physical beauty fades.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'd rather solve your own problem than appear needy. But people want to help. That's a need, too, and one that would be easy for you to serve. Just ask for the help they need to give.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Plato suggested to his young student, "Time will change and even reverse many of your present opinions" -- a fine reason to steer clear of the big topics. The same will apply to you today.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 3). This year you'll have the sort of people in your life who will grow and change right along with you, celebrating all of your incarnations -- what an astounding treasure! Also it will get easier and easier to see and take the steps leading to your own happiness -- simple, yes, but people are generally not so good at this. Libra and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 27, 6, 10 and 22.
COSMICALLY CURIOUS ABOUT... SELF-PARENTING (PART TEN): The road to maturity involves becoming an increasingly adept parent to oneself. In the new parenting book "Achtung Baby," American author Sara Zaske explores the more permissive style of German parenting. When it comes to self-parenting, Sagittarius is all about a similarly permissive style that includes plenty of "free play." Sagittarius feels best when letting the inner child come up with his or her own games and rules without too much direction and coaching. Growing up, after all, is mainly accomplished through experimentation and mistakes -- lots of mistakes. It is therefore an impediment to growth to prevent them from happening.
All of this occurs under the umbrella of what's "within reason." Of course, what's reasonable to a Sagittarius is probably risky to most other signs. That's part of the charm of Sagittarius, and also part of the Sagittarian reputation for being tremendously lucky.
This luck is augmented further by an ounce of precaution. Or if an ounce is too much, how about a tablespoon, Sagittarius? At the very least, make sure your friend group is stocked with a Virgo and a very nurturing Cancer. These signs will help you see when you are unnecessarily taking Evel Knievel-sized risks.
