ARIES (March 21-April 19): Less pain results in more gain. Let your fingers do the walking when you need to know facts or need to get something done quickly. Conditions are improving for romance and love.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Grab a life preserver, as you may have an urge to go overboard during the next few days. Warning: Extra flattery and popularity could put you in a position to promise more than you can deliver.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It isn't always how you act, but how you react that counts. Your reflexes are sharp and you can make executive decisions on the fly. Accept professional advice - just be leery of promises.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): What you think, you become. Be confident of success and visualize sinking baskets if basketball is your passion. Find someone else with the business savvy and vision to assist you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Earn your wings. Reconnect with the ability to understand the infinite. Even when there are many personal responsibilities to deal with, try to find time to be understanding and kindhearted.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Pay close attention to your appearance. While the moon is in your sign, you need all the confidence you can get. Keep in close contact with those who encourage you to seek your dreams.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Put your hands to work, not your mouth. You may seem like everyone's darling while cooking up an elegant dinner for two or playing Parcheesi. Don't make extravagant promises.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Hidden willpower assists you. Combine business with pleasure to wind up in a top-dog position. With your determination to succeed, all you require is someone with vision and imagination.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't be the joker. Play with all the cards in the deck, but avoid counting on getting wild cards. Find delight with people or things within walking distance or the local neighborhood.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Play the part of the great thinker. You needn't worry about the proper credentials or education. Remember that an Idaho farm boy pioneered the technology we now call television.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Swallow it hook, line and sinker. Being a bit gullible might have hidden advantages. People will like you better if you do not challenge their misconceptions or offbeat opinions.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Embrace childhood joys that have been neglected. Maybe you haven't had time to enjoy an ice cream cone while watching the sunset. Blow the dust and cobwebs off the stamp collection.
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Being an apprentice is the first and most necessary step towards becoming a master. Expect to be forced by circumstances to keep your nose to the grindstone or to shoulder extra responsibilities in March and May, but be delighted by any chance to learn through experience. In July you will have both the enterprising spirit and ample opportunity to reap the benefits of past accomplishments. Doors that were closed previously may open. In September and October, Lady Luck may once again shower you with blessings if you are quick to act.
