ARIES (March 21-April 19). Think about adorning your home with the same accoutrements you'd give a loved one. Maybe a new leopard print divan or chintz curtains, depending on your taste.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's as though someone gave you jasmine-scented oxygen and you're inhaling life on a whole new level. Breathe in whom and what you encounter with all the relish of a first breath.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're invigorated and a little loopy, commanding the team with bubbly enthusiasm. Acting with decisiveness inspires the group's confidence in you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some associate the moon with madness, others romance. It drives humans wild and causes oceans to swell. Your beauty has the magnetic power of the moon today. How heavenly.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A partnership changes the way you look at yourself, but that's nothing to be afraid of. It's delightful, and it's what you've wanted. Blending the best in each other is thrilling synergy.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Stubbornness isn't a liability when it's called persistence. Artists persistently plug away at their craft, even when it feels like trying to squeeze blood from a turnip. Keep on plugging.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Learn to relax, you busy butterfly! Instead of spreading yourself too thin, concentrate on one task and one person at a time. Your intensity of focus will produce impressive results.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Just when things were getting too heavy, you discovered that you can create more upward force by rebalancing the weighty stuff with the light stuff. Buoyancy is a virtue.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Practice makes perfect, and you're getting to a spot where what you do well happens so naturally, you're doing it in your sleep. The reward for having been there, done that is the way it makes you feel.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're entering a month-long period in your relationship where your wish is their command. There are those who want to - no, live to - make you happy. Find them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A partner sends a surprise to your checking account. Good. You're burning through money faster than you can make it. Distinguish between the things you can keep and the things that float through your fingers.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You know those come-hither looks you've been throwing to that adorable someone? They've noticed all along. You can bat your eyes innocently as if to say, "Who, me?" but the jig is up.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 8). This year will be unlike any other! Expect world-class breakthroughs and plenty of support for your ideas - spend the next eight weeks communicating them. If looking, career changes come together in August. You'll find romance at ordinary spots just around the corner. Cancer people are fabulous; Pisces people, arguably passionate. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 3, 31, 35 and 41.
