ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is always one person in the workplace whose witty observations and timely quips keep everyone's spirits up. That person is you. Today you are on fire.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have an intuitive sense of what to do when. It's telling you what to do right now.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Someone you can't stand is about to leave your circle of acquaintances, prompting you to have a few charitable feelings for his or her well-being. This person wasn't that bad, after all.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). A recently healed friendship is threatening to come apart again. You are tired of playing the peacemaker, but you might need to do it one more time.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have a friend who always seems to know what to say. Call this person up and invite them to comment on your latest predicament.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's happened before. But today is different. All loss will be prevented or quickly recovered. And you'll do this for others, too.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are running in a heated race right now. Stay focused and try to anticipate the challenges ahead, and you'll win. Big.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's good not to make too much of any one gesture of thoughtfulness or consideration. Instead, you'll rack up the good deeds - it's just your way of life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When it comes to personal details, especially romantic ones, you are a much better listener than a talker. But right now, you need to do the talking.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Hang in there. Relief is on the way, even if you can't see it yet.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Never at a loss for something to say, today your chatty friend will have a moment of absolute speechlessness. It will be funny, but try not to laugh out loud.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It takes you a while to get started, but once you hit your groove, you're like a diesel truck. Tonight brings praise and perhaps even applause.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 27). Social intelligence expands through the next 10 weeks. You understand when to push and when to retreat, and in that dance you'll create beautiful relationships. Vacation in June for lighthearted fun. A decision in July brings you closer to family. Meetings in September lead to future business success. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 25, 14, 39 and 50.
