ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be a thought leader. You might not be famous, but some may feel that your doings are newsworthy, so don't be offended if you hear that you are being discussed -- this just means you are influential and interesting.

 TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can become a model of efficiency. You are quite elevated in the eyes of others, so this is a good time to attend group gatherings and let your light shine. 

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You have a voice and should use it. Share your knowledge or offer to coach someone. Since your choice of words can be so impactful, it's important to speak with much consideration of the long-term effects on this person. 

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep moving along even if it seems as if you are not making headway right this minute. Your weekend plans might be quiet, but a staycation might be the perfect choice to refresh your body, mind and spirit. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look carefully before you leap. You might be so excited by a chance to make an impression by buying or signing up for something that you are swept away before you read the fine print. Cool your jets and do your homework. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Clean out the closets, weed the garden or tidy up the garage. You will feel more comfortable if everything is crossed off your to-do list before you chill out and enjoy the holiday weekend. 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): People remember social impressions, so when you make an appearance in public, be careful that you don't give anyone the wrong idea about what's important to you. A loved one might be especially attractive today. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may be wise to question whether the surface appearance really reflects the contents. Don't make big moves on impulse; pass up purchases, and people, that could end up not delivering on their promises.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Having a positive attitude can help you make the most of every day as long as you also keep your feet on the ground. You may get a chance to correct previous mistakes or even profit from them. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It's all dependent on your perspective. With a positive attitude life's a beach. See it more negatively and you may feel as if you're shipwrecked on a deserted island. Find some friends to play with this weekend. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Group get-togethers fit your groove. Plan to spend some happy hours with good friends or fun-loving family members. You might want to make time to discuss future dreams and plans with a loyal and wise partner. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may be filled with a spirit of adventure as you are inspired by a set of new and exciting ideas. Learn from others and you can take off in a variety of new directions in both your personal and professional lives. 

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your energetic, take-charge attitude is a great asset during the next two weeks but won't be helpful when it comes to practical financial concerns. Siphon your energy and romantic notions into a weekend getaway with a romantic partner and put your business ideas on the back burner. Early November is a good time to attend group get-togethers or to focus on social networking, because people will be attracted by your friendly manner. Concentrate on your material ambitions in early November, when your business acumen is heightened. Your prayers may be answered at the end of the year when an opportunity arrives that fills your needs. In late December and early January, your judgment is at its best, making this the ideal time to make crucial decisions and changes.
