ARIES (March 21-April 19). The warm fuzzies are dancing all around you like fairy elves. The cool thing is, anytime you hug or touch someone, the elves hop from your shoulders to theirs. Comfort feelings rule the evening.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's nothing you like better than peace and harmony among your brood. It overflows your cup of love and makes it easier to forgive their everyday trespasses.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You understand the magic rule: Please yourself first. This isn't selfish; it's authentic. Furthermore, this is no time to change yourself into what someone else wants you to be.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your self-worth isn't determined by the money you make or what you give to others. It's really about the joy you feel. Recognize this and suddenly everyone sees the real you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You love to be loved, admired or, at the very least, well-liked. Praise is an option here, too. Tonight, seek out your fan club - aka, the ones who'd never ignore you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don't have to take credit for what you do so well, but it'd be great if you did. Even you can't stop others from showering you with generous compliments and other feel-good bonuses.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can search high and low and find absolutely no reason not to accept a strange invitation, other than its strangeness. And that's not enough. Your curiosity is piqued.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Who you are in the world isn't all that different from the "you" in relationships. Consider everyone you meet as a partner in your mission. You are also partnering with your own aspiration for excellence.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may not be able to articulate it yet, but there's an urge for self-improvement growing inside you. You're in no mood for diets or exercise, so the improvement will have to be in your skills or intellect.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your creativity needs an outlet. The temptation is to impose outlets on someone else - to encourage a child or a spouse's talents instead of your own. Dare to express through you and only you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're a freewheeling wanderer who's having dreams of returning home. But where is that really? You're redefining what it means to be home. A partner influences where you end up.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Animals have evolved and adapted over centuries. You're going to do it in one lifetime. Your willingness to bend and twist and serve is fabulous as long as you continue to enjoy yourself.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 24). Your charisma is positively contagious this year. Nurture your talents. Take on new artistic projects in May and you really shine. Singles make a romantic impression in May and June. The relationship is linked to your financial success in August. You'll be drawing people and things toward you all year. You can count on Capricorn and Leo people. Your lucky numbers are: 33, 7, 45, 24 and 2.
