ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are experiencing some turmoil in your relationship. The journey is most of the joy and all of the challenge.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have been giving a lot lately - to your work, to your friends - and that kind of effort can only go on so long without a recharge.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Few things are more valuable to you than a kept promise. If you are let down, someone will make it up to you very shortly.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are often the funniest person in your group, but when you get with another funny type, that's when the real magic happens. You'll play well off of each other's wit.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You've come a long way, and you still have a long way to go. Keep steady. Your association with an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) will help.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You tend to take on extra work in order to make it easier for other people. Sometimes you are recognized for this self-sacrifice, and sometimes not. This time you will be.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You feel cozy inside, and connecting with people will add to the mood. A long conversation with a friend will be particularly pleasant.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Some view the world as an epic competition; some see it as an enormous cooperative effort. You see it as both today.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The routine is nice but not quite enough to fulfill you. Add something creative to the mix. You'll be extremely pleased with the results.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your business acumen is usually sharp, but today it feels a little off. Avoid making any big decisions with lasting consequences.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Where children gather, fun is soon to be had. They love you and you them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There is an undeniable spark of mischief dancing in your eyes. You are capable of anything today. Let loose.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 28). This year you will be so brave that you will be willing to take several risks in order to honor your heart's desire. Start right away. The next four weeks present the chance to provide a needed service and make money while you help others. You'll get around in style thanks to friends and lifestyle upgrades in the spring. Scorpio and Taurus people adore you. Lucky numbers are: 27, 4, 33, 15 and 17.
