ARIES (March 21-April 19). Boredom is an unacceptable state, whether you are the one who is bored or the one who is doing the boring.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don't have to be too careful about what you say. The way you play off of others may sometimes cause friction - it's good this way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Those you come into contact with want to be amused and delighted. You will deliver. Your natural boldness makes it easy for you to do so.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your world collides with that of a friend or boss. It may behoove you to fit in with a social group that does not appear to be your cup of tea.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There have been disappointments - that part is inarguable. But you'll move beyond disenchantment and into a state of inspiration.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll agree with others without echoing them - who needs a duplicating drone? You'll say the same thing, but how you say it will be different.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Because you're so well informed, you'll hold court at a dinner or conference table. Do be a gracious conversationalist.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Confucius said that a small mind is full of anxiety. The good news is that anxiousness can be relieved by opening your thought process.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is something admirable about the one who puts a full heart into futile exercises.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Making initial contact with someone can be challenging. You might find that you have so much to say that you don't know where to begin. But soon enough you'll get into a groove.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 29). You'll get through the frustrations of yesteryear and reach a new level of ease in life. You know how to relate to your loved ones in order get them to do what you want. Developments in your family will change the dynamic. A windfall in September will allow you to do something you've wanted to do for years. Sagittarius and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 4, 17, 30 and 16.
