ARIES (March 21-April 19). An idea's got legs, and you're moving yours to make it happen. The details you need to work through are slicker than marbles on a dance floor, so it's gonna take very fancy footwork to make this dance look polished.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don't believe in making any sudden moves. When it looks like you have to make a financial decision about where to put what and how to spend it, you thoughtfully ponder your options over the next few days.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The equation for the speed of sound says the slightest change in temperature or element changes its speed. As your mouth is moving a mile a minute, check out the mood of the room. Adjust your speed accordingly.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Some people have their best ideas in the shower. Maybe because it's the one place where they're not under any pressure. You'd benefit from a low-pressure environment so a revelatory moment can sneak up on you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your psychic friend or psychic higher self delivers an instant message for you. You may not understand where it came from or even how it relates to your immediate future, but it does. Right now it only matters that you listen.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can tag-team your bright ideas with someone else's and become doubly dangerous, or you can communicate your own with elan. Either way proves your superior wit and intelligence.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A diagnostician specializes in finding the source of a grumble. You too can look beyond the complaint and into the cause. You can listen to grumbles now and know immediately how to fix things.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you're dissatisfied with the answer you're given, keep looking for a better one. Don't be surprised if an answer presents yet another question in the meantime.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Even if it's a stranger slipping you a piece of wisdom on the subway, a chance meeting contributes a scene to your evolving story. On days like these, it's good to greet strangers like long-lost friends.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Channel that nervous energy into high productivity. Make the phone calls you've been putting off, clear the paperwork from your desk. You discover something you once misplaced.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're in a sociable, playful mood. Assemble a small village of friends for a get-together, or flirt with your co-worker to your heart's content. You're as equally convincing as you are hard to resist.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You've been so preoccupied with the external noise around you that it's hard to hear the voice within. Sink in to what's going on inside you. Get past the trivial white noise and hear the wise beauty.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 17). A moneymaking idea asks you to explore avenues previously exhausted. This pays off. Stay open to new information. Spend the next month figuring out what you need so you can focus on your family and personal relationships this summer. Take a gamble on love in September. Scorpio and Sagittarius people are lucky matches. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 2, 15, 41 and 35.
