I.M. Pei turns 96 on Friday. The Pritzker Prize-winning architect is well-represented in Dallas; he designed City Hall (with its futuristic base, a popular backdrop for sci-fi films), as well as Fountain Place and the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.


TAURUS: Apr 21—May 20
There’s no way to cover the extent of pending problems in a few words. For many of you it comes down to having to reckon with the truth. Finding a way to face it honestly has a lot of you wishing you were anywhere but here.

GEMINI: May 21—Jun 20
Having to watch yourself is one thing; half of this is about seeing how far people will go when it comes to ambition. Be careful. In this situation you’re dealing with, someone will stop at nothing to make sure that they come out on top.

CANCER: Jun 21—Jul 20
It is good to see that the old way of doing things isn’t as reliable as it used to be. To grow, you need to cultivate the willingness to move, or change at the drop of a hat.

LEO: Jul 21—Aug 20
This lesson seems to be about recognizing yourself as a vehicle for the creator. Without blowing the ego out of proportion, it’s time to figure out how to be a star, or at least come forward with enough light in your heart to turn your life into a masterpiece.

VIRGO: Aug 21—Sep 20
Taking care of yourself will mean different things, depending on your situation. For some, it could be an account in your name. For others, it could be owning the right to do as you please, or at least begin to see that your rights deserve some recognition.

LIBRA: Sep 21—Oct 20
Too many people are confusing the issues with the kind of petty gossip that comes up whenever there is this much to talk about. Balance is what’s needed here. Do you know where to look now that it’s your turn to provide it?

SCORPIO: Oct 21—Nov 20
Nothing is what we think; there’s no prescription for getting through anything. You may think things must go a certain way, but if you leave all alone and step out of the way, you just might tune into a miracle, and learn more about life in the process.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov 21—Dec 20
You are tired of hanging on and you don’t want to keep making believe this is working for you. These things are usually a simple matter of rearranging your priorities. You are loved and love gives you the power to make a difference.

CAPRICORN: Dec 21–Jan 20
So much of you has disappeared, you need to get some of it back. If this sounds like the same old story, maybe so. Forgive me, but you’re wiped out. Recouping and regrouping will be easy. With you it’s always a simple matter of connecting with Mother Nature and resting your bones.

AQUARIUS: Jan 21—Feb 20
The piece of you that feels the need to be like everyone else is in a headlock with the part of you that needs to go deeper in order to find itself. You have come to a place where it’s time to stop making so much room for everyone.

PISCES: Feb 21—Mar 20
Things that you are totally unprepared for will combine with the arrival of someone who hasn’t shown their face in a long time to show you that order is born out of chaos, and tell you that the next best thing is about to show up and surprise you.

ARIES: Mar 21—Apr 20
In those moments when you’re walking the fine line between the reality of things and the possibilities that your higher self has in mind, you will be tempted to hold back. I’m not so sure reserve is what’s needed here; it looks to me like stretching your limits is what it will take to move things forward.
