ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may wear a smile, but you still mean business. You show up to accomplish a few things, and that's what you do. You're sought out for advancement on the career front, and it's nice to have your spark recognized.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Long ago, you raised your standards, and you will raise them once more today. Give people more than they expect. Your generous heart lifts the spirits of everyone around you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're doing what you need to do to get ready for the big occasion coming up. If travel arrangements must be made, consider postponing your final decision until after Wednesday.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Between you and Libra, there's a special connection, a smile, a shared joke, a passing comment that sticks. Take your problem to the master tonight, even if it's only in the form of an e-mail.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're such good company that people are overly generous just to keep you around. Tonight: Watch out that the fool who is soon separated from his money isn't you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's so interesting the way new people color your day. You'll play inside someone's world for the first time. Even if you never return, you'll never forget what happens today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Details count at work. But be careful not to let a small dispute ruin a great project. A shopping spree highlights numerous choices - maybe too many. Narrow it down to three, and then decide in an instant.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Take it easy on yourself. Your body is telling you that you need rest. Don't push it. What you have to do can wait until you have the energy to do it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You can access wisdom, guidance and love by asking the right questions. Hint: "Why?" is not the right question. The best answer lies deep within your unconscious mind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Start a file of your best dreams and schemes, and come back to them often over the next three days. Fellow air signs Gemini and Libra have resources and bits of wisdom to share.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You know what it feels like to be close to someone in proximity and be miles apart on the inside. Instead of living with uncomfortable feelings, now is the time to bring them into the open. You're well received.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 3). Your wishes for others, which have been so generous and complete, are what will happen in your own life this year. The fruition of projects, the kinship of like thinkers and long-overdue financial remuneration are all features you'll enjoy. Invest in your education in June. There's a new living arrangement in November. Scorpio and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 35, 1, 7 and 3.
