ARIES (March 21-April 19). What you see, though not unusual, will astound you. You will be filled with a quiet wonder at what this drama is all about.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're good at thinking up places you'd like to visit. What's more difficult is actually making it happen. Pick one place and start making plans to go there.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Being choosy can invite the antagonisms of your friends, but they quietly wish they were as finicky as you. Having high standards is the best way to maintain quality.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It's not that you need constant harmony to feel OK about life. But the more stable your relationships and job, the more you can be there for other people.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Something in your love life is causing you concern. Then again, something in your love life is usually causing you concern.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your senses are turned up, particularly your sense of smell. One scent will stand out. This will be a nostalgic day.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can't be stopped. Tasks fall by the wayside like wheat felled by a sharpened scythe.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). As a rule, you don't like to lean on others. But rules are made to be broken. A slight lean will bring you closer to someone.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Months ago, you did a bit of groundwork for some plans that never came to fruition. Or so you thought. You'll see your work was not wasted.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll be the student today, and the teacher isn't who you think it is. Wisdom comes from unlikely quarters.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Remember when you resisted change? Now you realize that letting go and allowing the wind to carry you is more fun and takes less energy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Like a banner pulled behind an airplane at a football game, your emotions are right out there, available for anyone to see.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 19). You'll break your own records as you let go of beliefs that were holding you back. You'll cultivate nourishing relationships at the start of the year, and by March, you'll feel the strength of your support system flowing through all of your endeavors. August brings inspiration you can cash in on in September. Love signs are Aquarius and Virgo. Your lucky numbers are: 15, 43, 25, 17 and 52.
