ARIES (March 21-April 19). Instead of trying to figure out how you're going to manage everything you need to do, make it your priority to be centered.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Revel in primitive awe. Your feelings flood forward - an uncontrolled human response connecting you to humanity.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you still find yourself acting out in spite of your attempts to control your own behavior, then at least you're being real with your emotions.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Those you didn't think you would be impressed by could suddenly intimidate you with their presence. This is your cue to go off and get better prepared to make your move.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your moneymaking style is quick and easy. If a project or person proves to be resistant to your efforts, move on immediately.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You let yourself be influenced by positive action. What seems to be working for others will work for you, too.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are feeling the pinch, as the amount of time you need to complete a task doesn't nearly match up to the amount of time you have to dedicate to it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're in an adventurous mood and not limited by the norms of food and activity.

You're inclined to try a little of this, a little of that and a lot of the other.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be in the public eye. Don't let anyone know that you are struggling to pull off the act.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don't agonize. Make this your No. 1 rule. You already have the answers you need.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Trying to do it all will not raise you in the esteem of others. Your power increases as you delegate.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There is no reason to be overly protective, but at the same time it would be unfair to the other players to include those who aren't ready to play at the same level.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 4). You're powerfully, deeply thoughtful this month and by the start of the new year you'll be completely focused on your purpose. February brings emotional risk and reward. Your personal life takes a fun turn in March. Your contribution will be a driving force in a May venture. Gemini and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 41, 24, 17 and 20.
