ARIES (March 21-April 19): Comfort, emotional safety and a whole lot of nesting are high on your list of priorities today. When it is time to step out onto center stage, you are confident and ready to roll.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Hiding your know-how could be more a matter of shyness than good manners. Finding the courage to fully strut your intellect is healthy for heart and self-esteem.

GEMINI (May 21–June 20): Devoted efforts toward a specific goal produce results. Brush aside criticism that comes from a jealous neighbor, colleague or competitor. Let your independent spirit push you forward.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Gravitate toward the people, place and things that build you up in healthy ways today. Emotional security comes in many forms, one of the most gratifying being: accomplishment. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your psychic sixth-sense tingles today, but separating the reliable from the shaky takes time. Be patient when sorting through your perceptions, especially any which seem precognitive or paranormal in origins. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Putting the pieces together in the right order can result in financial gains for you today. A raise, bonus or opportunity for advancement may be closer than you realize. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Some co-workers or schoolmates are day brighteners, certain others --- not so much. There are a few bad apples in every bunch. You might find one amidst your daily cohorts today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might not want to let it show, but your desire to buy into someone's optimistic outlook is strong. A promising plan substantially boosts your excitement level or expands your options.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Misplaced pride can become an obstacle to progress. Moderation can sometimes be preferable to soaring at full throttle. In love, togetherness pivots upon give-and-take. Caring and sharing go hand-in-hand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You might find yourself out in the cold or without a clue if you fail to take a partner's emotions into serious consideration today. An open mind and understanding heart are valuable assets. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Friendship is strengthened when a project is tackled together. If you take the time to help out a pal today, chances are good that the favor will one day be returned.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Extremes can be costly today. Avoid carelessness or unforced errors that can reflect poorly upon your professionalism. Maintain a distinct separation between business and fun.

These interpretations are based on the aspects and positions of the planets in relation to each sun-sign. They indicate the general mood and issues of the day as you experience them. Be creative in applying your forecast to the actual circumstances of your life.
