Some will avoid cleaning out rooms, closets, drawers, files and the like because they know there will be memories to contend with there: shame connected with unfinished projects and reminders of past failures or, worse, better times. But for those who bravely tackle the process, the prevailing water-sign trines promise renewal.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). To avoid overpromising, you must first have an accurate idea of what you can reasonably accomplish. If you don’t have any data, don’t promise anything at all.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t set out to accomplish something beautiful; you only try to solve the problem at hand. But when you’ve truly solved it, the result is the best kind of beauty there is: unintentional and surprising.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). With your big smile and dancing eyes, you are mighty persuasive. Is it cheating? Maybe. But you can’t help it that people want to be involved with happy mischief.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Lately you’ve had the sneaking suspicion that there’s a greater use for your talents than is currently being explored. This hunch is right on the money. Go looking for opportunities.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s a symmetry to the things you tackle today. If you start out well, you will likely end well, too. The trick is not to start anything that doesnÕt completely interest you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don’t think of yourself as unusual or unique, but the fact is that your lifestyle is different from that of the people around you, and that difference is what keeps you smiling throughout the day.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Success secrets aren’t so secret after all. The smallest amount of research will turn them up. Besides, buying into another person’s strategy won’t help you now. All that’s needed is to finish the job you started.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Being bad can be thrilling, but there are always consequences. Luckily, today brings a guilt-free gift: The moral thing and the exciting thing happen to be one and the same!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Freethinkers aren’t afraid to doubt. In fact, doubt is a prerequisite. If you don’t poke around suspiciously at your own belief system, then you don’t really know freedom of thought.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Misery is not just a state of mind; for some, it’s a lifestyle. When things are going well, they invent reasons to suffer. Stay away from this type, and your day will be most satisfactory.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The only reason to become successful is to become wiser than you are now. Money and fame will do nothing to add to the happiness of the unwise.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your work speaks for itself, so let it. Your silence allows people to draw their own conclusions. You’ll attract only the most intelligent and discerning customers.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. An extraordinary year is lining up for you. There’s a shift in your personal life, and you’ll adopt new methods for getting love and attention. You’ll add an attractive friend to your mix in January. March is for expanding your professional horizons. At first, you’ll give more than you get, but things balance out by June. Gemini and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 10, 45, 16 and 30.

HOLIDAY STRESS RELIEVERS: This time of year can be hectic as people rush around to try to fulfill their holiday and end-of-year expectations. Mix in the complications of increased financial obligations, family dynamics, travel and extreme weather conditions, and it is not difficult to figure out why so many people wind up feeling spent and blue during the holiday season. So what can you do to counteract holiday stress?

ARIES can start with the mantra: “Out with the old.” The sign of the ram loves to try new things and is adventurous in this regard. It might be a new kind of exercise or a new hobby, class or domestic project. Aries will dive right in, and if the endeavor is a good match, it will quickly become a part of daily life. If the endeavor is not a good match, Aries bails – a good strategy – and is better off for the experience no matter how brief it was. But often there is leftover residue that sits around long after Aries has moved on from the activity. Books, equipment, computer files, instructions and more piled up and never to be used again create negativity for Aries. For instantaneous stress relief, pack up the car and head for the dump.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Sagittarius is the sign of exploration, exemplified by Simon Helberg’s exploration of outer space as his character Howard Wolowitz of “The Big Bang Theory.” Three natal Sagittarius luminaries suggests that Helberg is an independent thinker who loves to travel and learn different cultures. His moon and Mars in Capricorn indicates a highly structured approach to life and stellar business instincts.
