ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can plan your life on paper, but you have to live it through your heart. Be willing to abandon the plan in favor of your heart's dictates. By the end of the day, you'll have broken a few of your own rules.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The world is just not moving at the pace you'd like it to move. If you can accept this with a smile, you are truly mature. If not, at least accept it with a blank face. Getting mad only worsens the problem.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). With your wacky ways, you could alienate someone who is both wonderfully and hazardously "normal." There's no time to explain. Keep going in your zany style.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Projects seem to come to a close - an illusion. The road bends, but it doesn't end. Keep going. Talking with Sagittarius or Leo will help you push through limitations.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A new relationship is interesting, exciting and bound to cool off sooner or later - well, later, you hope. For now, fuel the fire by not revealing too much too soon. Enjoy the dance.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Shake it up. Design your day in random order, wear the clothes in the back of the closet, sleep on the other side of the bed. Small changes in routine alter your perspective drastically.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Get quiet enough to hear the sound that the Earth makes when it spins. When you're open to being affected by the minutia of this day, you'll experience starkly beautiful moments.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're attracting what you want at an impressive speed. You'll see a glimpse of the abundance that is to come and be further inspired to do the work that is needed to get it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). A dominating force steps out of the way, and you're finally in charge. Apply social grace to business arrangements. It sweetens the deal, and besides, you do it so well.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This is no time to believe what you hear. The same person who is a font of information is also a font of misinformation. Wait to act. Better information comes tomorrow.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Within your group of friends, many have strong opinions. This can lead to battles of will and hurt feelings if taken too seriously. Keep things light by steering clear of controversial topics.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Planets smile on you when you focus on activities outside of work. Enjoyable hobbies connect you with interesting characters, secret knowledge and potential love.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 10). You're at the top of your game this year. Whatever you desire, you can acquire. The key is to have courage, even if the outcome is unclear. February centers on issues of independence. In March, people notice and reward your behavior. Wedding bells ring in May. You hit it off with Scorpio, Virgo. Lucky numbers: 15, 23, 18, 30, 1.
