ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's no time to waste attempting to answer the question, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" What precipitated an event is less important than taking action on it here and now.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There's a timeless place in your mind's eye, begging for your return. Go there - it only takes a few relaxed minutes. The richness of this vision gives you a new lens through which to see the pretty world.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're so darned likable that even your nemesis (if you have one) could go sweet on you now. You won't have to do anything to look good in the eyes of others, but they'll try hard to impress you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have more work to do than you know what to do with. Actually, you know exactly what you need to do: speed work. It's kind of like speed dating or speed reading. You quickly go to the core of what needs doing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Good news - there'll be cinematically fateful encounters with influential people, and you're totally ready. Maybe you don't realize exactly what's going down as it occurs, but you correctly sense its significance.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Restore value to something or someone who needs it. It's not rocket science. It's as easy as polishing silver with the right tools, which you have. Your care and kindness come back tenfold.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some people aren't the best at expressing their feelings of attraction. Those who've been a real pain are often just trying to say, "I really like you." Remember,

you've got charm and people skills. Not everyone else does.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The more you idealize a lover, the better they respond. Isn't that funny? They love being seen in the best light possible. Who wouldn't want to be a better version of him or herself?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Dancing days are here again! The slightest provocation should set you grooving. Evening brings a partner who loves your moves and inspires new ones.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A funny female has you in stitches. Just in time, too - comic relief is mandatory today, alleviating your tunnel vision and overworked sense of responsibility. Let loose tonight.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Someone could easily fall for your style, not your substance. Oh, well. You can't expect everyone to get the deeper parts of you. Besides, the attention is nice either way.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're in the public eye. This is a result of your gutsiness and willingness to stake your reputation on your cause. Even if this stirs your insecurities, move forward.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 30). This year, you become a master at fulfilling your own ideas of success. The twists in your plot are remarkable in the next 10 weeks. What you once saw as an invasion of your happiness becomes the cause of it. You surrender to a partner's needs this summer, and the result is rich and lovely. Gemini and Aries people spark your imagination. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 36, 17, 22 and 24.
