  • ARIES (March 21-April 19): Set an example of excellence. Roll up your shirtsleeves and get down to the nitty-gritty. Ambition might spur you on to complete a labor of love and tap into a fountain of creative genius.
  • TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Try reading past the first paragraph. It is time to tackle important subjects and you will be more successful if you are willing to do an in-depth study. Remember that Rome wasn't built in a day.
  • GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Let the learning curve rise up to meet you. Don't be afraid to try a new experience or dive into a new study. When climbing the ladder of success you may get dirt beneath your fingernails.
  • CANCER (June 21-July 22): You're only as young as you feel. Be sympathetic toward those who are stuck in unpleasant routines. Communication is the key to keeping relationships strong, happy and success-oriented.
  • LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Follow the Yellow Brick Road. Like Dorothy, you may pick up a few buddies along the way who have similar goals in mind. This is a good time to apply concentrated energy in achieving ambitions.
  • VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it. Showing affection or devotion means doing a little service for the one you love - and you might be able to put important matters into sharp focus.
  • LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Remain open to suggestion. A minor alteration in your work routines might solve numerous nagging problems. Avoid emulating those with bad habits. Workaholics might seem glamorous.
  • SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't speed read past essential knowledge or details. Add a new dimension to your studies by making a game of it. Send a love letter or a just-for-fun e-card to the love of your life.
  • SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Read the fine print. Your financial future might depend upon minute details in fine print at the bottom of the page. Make sure you calculate all risks.
  • CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Prioritize. The few minutes set aside to put tasks on a list and number them from one to 10 might be time well spent. Take pride in finding intelligent or rational solutions.
  • AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't drag your feet - dance for joy. Tune in to the rhythms around you and act according to your intuition. Your best bet is to follow the subtle trends.
  • PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Bright ideas bloom. Let your mind wander when doing routine jobs or repetitive chores. An efficient use of resources includes the fact that some things are cheaper by the dozen.
  • IF TODAY YOUR BIRTHDAY: In January and February your energy levels are high, so much can be accomplished on the physical plane. It might be a good time to join a health spa or get the bicycle out of storage. Maintain a low profile in June when your instincts and business sense are somewhat off-center. April, July and October are the best months to put important plans or projects into motion. In these months, a lucky break might provide a chance to improve a key area of your life. The people you meet during this period will have your best interests at heart - or at least will give you excellent guidance.
