ARIES (March 21-April 19): Blind as a bat. Your inner radar may be tuned to one thing and leave you oblivious to everything else. When you have a great desire, you may only see, hear or imagine its fulfillment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Maintain a low profile. This isn't the day to play solitaire on the computer when the boss isn't watching. Be circumspect about sending e-mail to your friends and avoid confrontations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Enjoy a little friendly competition. Letting someone else set the pace will help you perform better. Others in the immediate vicinity may be passionate about winning the race, or your attention.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Thrift and economy require the knowledge of a true value. Cutting corners could cost more dollars. Avoid making promises, signing contracts or entering into important agreements.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Count your lucky stars. You are sensitive toward friends who prize your understanding nature, and are a reliable anchor of security for your loved ones. Take pride in your ability to handle responsibilities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): TGIF. Dot every "i" and cross each "t" to avoid criticism. Search for a safe and secure oasis of tranquility. Escape from the pressures of work and career once the workday is completed.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Sheep shouldn't run with a pack of wolves. You might be intrigued by an offer to join a group or organization. New friends aren't dangerous, but their standard of living may be alien to yours.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The moon's in your sign and perhaps you are more self-conscious than usual. Whether you are a homemaker, lawyer, musician or punch a time card every day, people appreciate you for what you do.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Wave a white flag. It is better to give in with good grace now than to remain faithful to a lost cause. You can sort out a comfortable compromise sometime next week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Turn up the contrast if you want to view things in black and white. Be exacting about the rules and meeting deadlines, but be a creampuff when dealing with a very special someone.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Friends can't always be lovers. And your special someone doesn't want to feel like he or she is merely a roommate. What you consider a romantic overture might not come across as planned.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Ignore a tug of war that is going on in public. Be known as go-getter on the job but as a sweet and gentle pussycat around the home. Avoid starting new projects or entering into agreements.
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: To better your life it is sometimes necessary to work hard and prove yourself. To attain your dreams, you may need to be disciplined and determined in February and then again in June. Valuable experiences will lay beneficial building blocks if you refuse to be discouraged by obstacles, setbacks or responsibilities. In August and September you will be given a chance to reap the benefits of your hard work through a lucrative opportunity or what may turn out to be a blessing in disguise. Your entire life situation should change for the better.
