ARIES (March 21-April 19). Reflection and self-care shouldn't be considered a treat. They're necessary! What would you be like if this were a regular part of your being? Slight daily improvements will take you to fantastic heights.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your actions are the proof of what's important to you -

period. Hold others to the same principle. The one who hasn't made your feelings a priority isn't deserving of your fawning attention.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Finding love tends to be an instinctual endeavor for you, but your personal life could presently benefit from a more conscious approach. Write down what you're looking for in a relationship.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Be lighthearted. In general, you could use more fun and less thinking. Spontaneous moves are golden. Tonight, what you share with Leo and Sagittarius people will continue to impact your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One size doesn't fit all. Your needs are special and different. Speak up. On a romantic note, someone who has worshiped you from afar now worships you from a'near.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have a problem. This is fantastic news, especially if you know exactly what that problem is - most people don't. By pinpointing exactly what's wrong,

you're already halfway to the solution.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're not at a loss for challenges. Career, finance and logistical issues all require work. So why should your social life be difficult? Hang out with people who are easy to please - that's the good life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Loved ones want your attention all to themselves and will find it difficult to share. Be sensitive to their feelings, but take care of the business that's most important to you, no matter what loved ones think.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You've never needed an excuse to celebrate, but you'll find a few anyway. The fact that there is plenty of love around you, not to mention creative freedom and some money, too, is as good a reason as any.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It seems the only thing better than adventure, variety and newness is more adventure, variety and newness. Try what you've never tried, and give strict notions of how things should be.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). A baffling turn of events is featured. Oh, what fun! You're ready to be witty, defensive, understanding, generous . . . whatever's needed to make the situation work for you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What did you do lately that made you a better person? And what would you change if you could? The answers to these questions will help you make the most of this weekend.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 12). New friendships teach and delight you this year as you align yourself with the people who live in the style you prefer. On a mission for money, you zoom through this month and finally get what you're after by the middle of June. A sensational stroke of luck in July perks up your personal life, too. Cancer and Libra people are powerful collaborators. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 3, 2, 5 and 20.
