ARIES (March 21-April 19). Most of the time, you'd empty your pockets for the ones you love. Would they do the same for you? When you hear a resounding "yes!" this empowers your heart to keep on giving.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your partner really does want to share everything with you. Despite your initial hesitation, you go for it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're riding a wave of feel-good energy. But wait - it doesn't have to be a wave! It could, if you keep it up, be your new baseline of contentment.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Making things better for yourself will likely make things better for those close to you - mostly.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're paying compliments right and left, finding something to like in each face you greet.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There's a competition you're taking part in and you're starting to suspect that the other side is winning. Play your best cards. Withhold nothing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It is said that the truth hurts. It doesn't have to - not when it's told by someone with your diplomatic finesse.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Power games are a part of life, and you're in the mood to play. Keep the upper hand.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Popularity can be terribly inconvenient. You might decide it suits you better to lie low and enjoy your down time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). For some, putting a half-finished project out into the world is better than nothing. That's not your style.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Friends ask you to give them big chunks of your time. If you say yes, what follows is an unforgettable episode.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Inquiring minds ask: What's going on inside you? You need only quench their curiosity with a bare-bones sketch. Unless you're moved to give it up.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 24). You are really "on" when you need to be, and brighter than ever. But you realize when it's time to recharge. Some of your best moments this year are low-key, when you're around your favorite people. New connections you make in September contribute to your success for years to come. Aries and Leo are brilliant additions to your team. Your lucky numbers: 5, 52, 1, 49, 17.
