ARIES (March 21-April 19). Repeat after me: I'm not my own worst enemy. Let that roll around in your mind, and contemplate the feel of it on the tip of your tongue. And if the opposite seems truer, you may owe someone an apology.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Bossy people have the nasty habit of making disagreement totally unacceptable. Ironically, they cause peace lovers like you to revolt. Probably it's better just to avoid these types altogether.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You do love a good diversion - your evil twin agrees. So while you create a conversational decoy, your twin, or another part of your personality, cavorts. The mischief you muster delights everyone.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don't like change. But what about trying a different flavor of ice cream, or choosing a spiritual family instead of your familial one? Sometimes the road to happiness is unfamiliar.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When you see things differently than how a partner sees them, sometimes that's called a fight; other times, passion. You're open to having your mind changed, and that's just what happens.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Intimate relationships possess you like a virus and are just as hard to shake. You probably don't really want to, anyway. The unreliability, unpredictability and unruliness of your love bond is exciting.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A co-worker or office mate has a secret crush on you. Hey, it's not the first time you've been the object of someone's affection. Treat the knowledge with tender sensitivity. Immature love is fragile.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your personal magnetism is a self-evident, irrefutable truth. It can also get you into hot water. When your charm and persuasiveness kick into high gear, acknowledge your power over the innocents.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When the energy at home is slightly chaotic - OK, bordering on a big mess - your partner picks up the slack. Sit down together tonight and organize your space. This committed act vicariously organizes your future.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As disruptive as the changes might be, they directly benefit you. Maybe a co-worker leaves and you're able to head a more creative project. It's more than good timing - your expertise is needed.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You balance your pleasure palette by mixing up your curiosities. New music, literature, scenery, tastes and people must be experienced before you can go back to appreciating your own living room.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The vicissitudes of love and life cause rapturous upheaval. Later, you'll judge whether today's encounter has been more delightful or more disturbing - right now, it's still hard to tell.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 26). You're breaking out of old ruts this year, and this feisty energy magnetizes people to you. Consider your personal dynamism dynamite! New friends flock to you in May. Romance flourishes in June. A sibling needs your help in July. Education helps you make more money in September. Aquarius and Gemini people are hooked on you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 26, 20, 38 and 12.
