ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your plans are so appealing to you that you want to write them on the schedule in pen. Alas, the pencil is your best utensil.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You aim to please, but at what cost? Maybe it's just easier for you to oblige others than to confront them. Draw the line.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is much flowing in and out of your life today, so the emphasis is on letting this happen freely. Accept things without feeling a weight of responsibility.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You'll be wondering about your support system and might test its strength. But be careful not to be like the boy who cried "wolf."

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are feeling vulnerable and will skillfully guard your ego against injury. If you do risk your heart, you won't be sorry.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll benefit from the extra care you put into your appearance. Your style is classic. Your efforts will be noticed and applauded.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If you could get away with skipping down the street without gaining a reputation as a crazy person, you would do it. Travel happily and travel light.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may detect an edge in a loved one's voice. This person is stewing about something. Ask and get to the bottom of it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are getting into balance. This involves letting go of your pride. Seek the assistance you need and then accept it when it comes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're naturally modest, but it's time to stop being so liberal with your apologies. Go the whole day without saying "sorry."

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're open to the possibility that some of your beliefs are going to have to change; you're just trying to figure out which ones.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The best time you'll spend today is in meditation. The attempt to calm your mind will bring about a series of positive events. Steer clear of erratic energy.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 20). Your social standing is more prominent this year, which favorably affects your level of enthusiasm. The world is a more exciting place for you because of those you meet in January. A mentor helps you take advantage of February's career opportunity. Invest in your talents in June. September brings an excursion. Aries and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 44, 21, 40 and 18.
