ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're going through a process of elimination and renewal. Have no pity. If you don't love it and if you wouldn't choose it again if you saw it for the first time today, throw it out.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have a story to tell, and you tell it exceedingly well. But before you do, make sure you have the right audience. Knowing your audience will make all the difference.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There's a fine line between compassionate generosity and being a doormat. Over the next three days, you figure it all out. There is no right or wrong. What you're comfortable with is right for you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Resolving not to complain frees up energy. Tonight, your dreams will provide a sneak preview of what's to come. If you don't like your dreams, change something about your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Friends blow your mind with their needs and desires. Emotional maturity is wanting others to be happy even if you cannot remotely relate to the source of their happiness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just because an idea is popular doesn't make it right. If everyone is doing it, buying it or believing it, you're skeptical. True friends love you even when you don't conform.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The closest people to you are the ones who will be the trickiest now. When family is involved, emotions run hot. Taking the high road is, as usual, the most difficult - and the best - way to go.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don't wait for the perfect scenario to move forward. There may never be such a circumstance. Once you make it clear that you're marching onward no matter what, things start working better.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Recent changes have made it impossible for you to go about your business in the same manner as before. You're optimistic and see new opportunities, too. Tonight: Command an audience.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Healthy relationships are a product of consistent behavior. Resolve small differences, or let them go. If you practice this pattern consistently, maybe the big differences won't materialize at all.
