◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Relationships with partners and close friends are upbeat and successful. This is because your confidence and enthusiasm make others feel good. One tiny caveat: Don’t agree to anything that you can’t fulfill because you will be tempted.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When you’re keen, you’re a hard worker. Today your enthusiasm might make you take on more than you can handle or agree to a deadline that is impossible for you to fulfill. Heed this warning to avoid disappointments or a red face.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a fun-loving, playful day! Get out and have a good time. Enjoy sports, the entertainment world, parties, fun times with children and romantic rendezvous with your main squeeze. Caution about being excessive in your pleasure. Get home safe.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll enjoy entertaining at home today and this evening. Invite the gang over for good food and drink. As a host, you might be extravagant because it’s difficult to exercise restraint today. Be prudent when considering real-estate deals or home purchases.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your enthusiasm knows no bounds today, which is why you’ll be successful if you have to promote, persuade, sell, market, teach, write or act. Your words are like gold! Nevertheless, don’t promise more than you can deliver. Keep it real to keep the respect of others.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is an excellent day for business and commerce. You feel confident and others will believe in you. Nevertheless, there’s a quality about today that allows people to overestimate things or take on more than they can handle. Don’t fall prey to this. Be cool.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You have lots of energy today and you can use it in almost any way you want. You feel generous to others, even extravagant.

◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You feel selfless today and are willing to put the needs and wants of others before your own. However, make sure you’re doing this for the right reason. Furthermore, make sure you’re not self-sacrificing or selling yourself short. If you don’t take care of yourself and your own needs, how can you help others?
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Group interactions will be upbeat and enthusiastic today. This is a great day to enjoy classes, workouts, outdoor activities and interaction with clubs and groups. Your interaction with others will encourage you about achieving a goal.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It’s easy to make a great impression on people in authority today. For starters, you look like a winner. And nothing succeeds like success. Furthermore, success is sexy. Yup, that’s how you look — successful and sexy.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll love learning anything today, but especially you’ll love learning profound knowledge about religion, politics, philosophy and the law. You want to make the world a better place and you have genuine concern for the global village.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It’s easy to get the support from others. This is a good day to go for a loan or ask for financial assistance.
