ARIES (March 21-April 19). A collaboration will turn out better than any person involved could have imagined. You'll be pleased with what you can produce when you work with a team.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When the mighty fall, it gives everyone else a certain secret thrill. Override human nature; offer your compassion.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You carry yourself with attitude. You are who you are, and it feels brilliant to live as you do - honestly.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Needy, clingy people will be attracted to you because you have so much to give. Make some rules for yourself.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You usually get a strong feeling about people within the first few moments of knowing them. It will help you be more selective about who you let in your life.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though you have a knack for picking those whose star is on the rise, you are capable of doing amazing things on your own. Remember this today.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Like a caricature artist, you will be able to take a person's characteristics and exaggerate them. This helps you understand who you are dealing with.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 11). Team up. Relationships push you to your full potential. Through the next six weeks, your social grace is matched by your curiosity. You will constantly seek to understand others, which gives you a psychological edge. You'll win games in March. Your hard work bolsters your savings account in June. Aquarius and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 31, 2, 19, 40 and 17.
