ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you are stuck it's only because you have yet to look at your circumstance from an effective point of view.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Be like the Earth - it keeps turning around, and there's no destination point. The moment is all that matters.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It's admirable how you want to share; however, a self-sacrifice will not work in your favor. Be temperate. Moderation suits you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are actually able to turn your internal clock forward by acting as if you have the maturity, patience and detachment of a much older, experienced person.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You love to be of service, but not for people who do not need it. Be a judicious giver.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Remember your past successes and go forward. You are a channel for powers beyond your own.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you feel like a round peg in a square hole, consider yourself lucky. You can come out of this situation much more easily than all of those square pegs in square holes.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're really not feeling very social, as there are things in your life that require your undivided attention. Your true friends will understand.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Even though your concentration is strong and your body able, you still may not be able to accomplish everything on your list. Cut it in half.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Listen to people from all walks of life. Your preconceived notions blow down.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can deepen your relationships by being spontaneous, fun and of the moment. Make some snappy, whimsical decisions and invite a few others along.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Don't let the enormity of a task keep you from striving for it. You're just as likely to succeed with a small task as you are with a big one.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 8). Things shift right at the start of this exciting year and the change is happening because of you. This month you move people to action with your vibrant personality. You'll study and learn in January. A partnership improves your life in February. June involves a big event and you pull it all together with grace. Scorpio and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 20, 6, 43 and 19.
