ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's no such thing as having too much fun. Today's amusements will make wonderful conversational material for the many social obligations you'll be attending in the near future.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your inclination is first to be nice. Nice works for you in most cases - but not all. Woe to the person who inspires you to go with your second inclination - to get your way, period.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Multitasking is like a sport to you now. You feel so productive doing a million things at once. Tonight, you react to loved ones in ways that surprise even you. Chalk it up to learning.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've done a pretty good job being you. Spoiling yourself a little bit won't cause you to go all soft. In fact, saying yes to your own needs is the most healing thing you can do right now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You luck out in the love department. Don't just chalk it up as a fluke - your winning streak stretches through the next three days. Tonight, you have fun finding things to do that don't involve a lot of money.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You've got a whodunit on your hands. There are several suspects, but don't jump to conclusions until you do some thorough investigating. The answer isn't so obvious.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're becoming aware of new internal stirrings, developing fascinations and consciousness-expanding pursuits. Your "aha" moment is just around the corner.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Life is a bit like a 3D poster now. Look deeply into a flat part. Change your position, and blur your eyes so that you no longer see the distinctions between things. A new image or way of viewing things pops out at you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have an effect on people. You make them feel a certain way. Get in touch with exactly what that effect is and what that feeling feels like. Ask pointed questions and get candid answers.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The quickest way to your goal is to let others know that it's in their interest to promote your interest. A close encounter with someone powerful revs your engine.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Life flows simply when you're operating alone. But having an easy time is not the point now. Working with others brings enriching challenges - the kind you didn't know you needed.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You do what you want. Let others run their own show, too. Loved ones will be drawn to you because they feel free around you. Tonight, your mind is like a magic wand. Watch where you zing that thing!

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 19). It's a year of expressing your individuality. Over the next seven weeks, it's remarkably easy for you to make progress toward one of your more unique goals. Studies, classes and travel perk up your personal life through the spring. An investment opportunity in June is not to be missed! You hit it off beautifully with Scorpio and Pisces. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 41, 39, 10 and 33. *
