ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can show a friendly face toward other people, but you might want to avoid actions that could be considered controversial. Keeping a low profile with a smile on your face might be the best course of action for now. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your natural inclination is to try to make other people feel good about themselves and bring out the best in them in various settings. You may perform services that benefit other people and earn their respect.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You've heard the old saying that what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Give your friends the same freedom of choice that you expect, whether you are setting up a play date or a business deal. 

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep your chin up. Your partner or a regular companion could harbor some solemn thoughts or negative attitudes that subtly drag your mood downward. Put yourself in a virtual bubble filled with warmth, happiness and positivity.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You possess greater ambitions than usual and could therefore look for opportunities for advancement in the workplace. When out shopping, you might be attracted to things that aren't as worthwhile or beneficial as they may seem. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When others see only problems, you see powerful possibilities. Your imagination can turn a routine task into a triumph. Your visionary approach and painstaking attention to detail could make you stand out in a crowd. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You could be challenged to deal with family squabbles or a task that is repetitive and boring. If you feel out of your depth, remember that practice makes perfect. It may be worthwhile to find a congenial helper.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Create rewarding alliances with those who share your highest values and principles. It can be very difficult to do, but if you're willing to share your passions and ambitions with others, you could discuss a rainbow of possibilities. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Pay attention. Friends might offer you some sound and necessary advice. Rather than relying upon pennies from heaven, you might be ready to knuckle down and put concentrated effort into achieving material success. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can see pitfalls in a new plan but can also acknowledge the potential for rewards. Your powers of deep analysis could be your strongest point. If you accept a risk, you should be able to bulldoze past the obstacles. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You could receive, and accept, friendly invitations without hesitation. However, you may need to make early reservations to get a place at the most popular hotspots. Focus on making a cherished dream come true. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): While the Moon travels through your sign today you could have a resurgence of high-minded thoughts and idealistic urges. You may want to surround yourself with uplifting music or gradually work toward more sustainable choices. 

 

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Once you have the bit between your teeth during the next four to five weeks, you will be set to race to the finish line. You may be passionate about achieving a lifelong dream and wear blinders where anything else is concerned. You might refuse to listen to logic if insurmountable obstacles appear. Your competitiveness is at a peak in January, when you are eager to act on your instincts. February through the first half of March is a good time to reassess your long-term objectives, as well as your finances, and to ask for advice from wise people. The people, ideas and opportunities that appear in this time period will be beneficial, although you might not recognize their value at the time. Your drive and determination to succeed will be a powerful force through June, but June is not a good month to make financial changes.
