ARIES (March 21-April 19). Being careful about how you spend your time and whom you spend it with makes you appear more valuable in the eyes of others.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will be drawn to the unusual and tend to find deep meaning in one-of-a-kind objects. Your unconventionality fuels a creative venture of a lifetime.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Strong people want to compete with you because they sense you are equally matched. If you share a vision, you will accomplish much together.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Get a new perspective on your situation by physically adjusting your view. Take a long walk or hit the highway in your car.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Sure, you want people to be comfortable around you. But you expect your loved ones to have certain things together in their lives. These standards keep everyone honest.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Continued success is virtually assured when you stay true to your personal values in the face of what amounts to a bartering for your integrity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In reality, you may be a salesclerk in a shoe store, but figuratively, for today anyway, you are on a mission in a jungle where pith helmeted, sunburned and battered, you emerge from the bush to make a great discovery.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You can adroitly communicate ideas. You'll be a dynamo at work, as long as you have a platform on which to shine.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The road to victory may be a labyrinth, but victory is yours in the end.

PISCES (Feb.19-March 20). Rest time is over. Feel free to pursue the positive goals that perennially ran through your mind during your downtime.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 1). Your relationships will be refreshed this year. Some of you will form a new business with an old friend. A few of you could marry a former schoolmate. There will be an important development in your career in August. Family influences your choice of location in September - you could visit or move to a new place then. Pisces and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 22, 49 and 18.
