ARIES (March 21-April 19): You possess an abundance of energy, so this is a good time to tackle projects that have been on the back burner. You may meet people who promise more than they can deliver. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Mesmerizing romantic encounters are possible. You could luck into the perfect alliance for money-making partnerships as well.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Social contacts can be used as a means to an end and may not mean what they say. New hookups may have too many stars in their eyes for a long-term relationship, but a flirtation is possible. 

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Maintain faith in friends even when they complicate things. Create the future you visualize and don't be held back by the past.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Photograph two birds with one shot. No one kills birds anymore. Take care of the things under your control by being efficient and self-disciplined so you have more time to relax. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Moneymaking activities only need a touch of initiative to succeed. A loving partner may act as an inspiration or encourage you to make a purchase. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Career matters may motivate you all day. When evening falls, slip into something comfortable and treat someone like royalty. A surprise dinner for two could ignite romantic passions. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may share dreams of a successful future with a romantic partner making this a formidable pairing but may struggle with differing attitudes toward money. 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Please yourself. Your purest motives are shining even if clowning around is the only way you get attention. Others will be amused and tolerant of your little idiosyncrasies. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't covet what isn't yours. Put the best interest of the other people in your life ahead of your own wants. You can be fair without being seen as a pushover. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Put defense mechanisms aside and show your true self. Let others peek beneath your armor and they will see there is nothing to fear.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your energy could be wasted if you fall prey to reminisces or get caught up in daydreams. Rational decisions are put at risk by emotional input.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You are likely to be more romantic than usual in the next two to three weeks, but you could be easily misled by a new hookup. You are more practical in late December, making that a good time to address your financial security and make end-of-the-year tax decisions. Wishful thinking and the influence of friends can cloud your thinking in January. You may become more willing to do the necessary work to achieve material success in the spring. Don't overlook helpful advice or an opportunity that arrives in July as it can improve your overall well-being for a long time.
