ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's a difference between thinking about something and thinking it through. Don't let theories entangle you. Make a move.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Every group has a mission, although many such missions are unstated.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Doubt casts insidious shadows that turn an otherwise idyllic picture into a dim little mess. Your future? Get the light right by eliminating doubt.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The universe isn't punishing you, although it feels like you've been sent to "time out" to reflect on your recent activities.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You approach your work with a sense of wonder. Even if you've already been there, it's never been done today.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're not into moving around just to look busy. You'll move when there's a mighty good reason to do so. Strong ideas motivate you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're sensing the undercurrents that pervade a conversation. If you act, some may consider you paranoid. Later, they will call you a genius.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Part of you wants to sell out and blend in because it's painful not to be fully appreciated. Amplify your weirdness and keep going.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Be kind to that familiar face in the mirror. That's the person who's been there for you all along and will stick it out to the end.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You like the freedom of not having to answer to anyone. And yet, you also need feedback to remind you of your relevance.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The best romance is a friendship, all dolled up. Come to your senses and either figure out how to be friends or leave.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your job is to find your lost bliss - reconnect with the selfish, childlike part of you.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 22). Your genuine compassion for those around you is one reason you radiate in the hearts of others this year. Giving of your attention and nurturing is your greatest joy this year. You will, however, do your share of receiving, too, especially over the next 10 weeks when those who adore you really show it. You make a winning connection with Cancer and Libra. Lucky numbers: 40, 14, 24, 3, 15.
