ARIES (March 21-April 19). A mild dispute over something trivial threatens one of your favorite friendships. Actually, no, it doesn't.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You have a reputation for reliability. People know they can count on you to lend a hand. Don't succumb to the temptation to please all.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Growth pains are not merely the plight of the young. People grow - at least the good ones do - throughout their lifetime.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Someone has given you some sensitive information in complete confidence. You must not tell, no matter how badly you want to .

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Stay on task. You will be tempted to stray many times today. Take these intrusions as tests of your ability to stay focused.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'd be a fool to stop now. You know that, but nagging doubts keep you from fully committing yourself. Accept those doubts without succumbing to them.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You always have set high goals for yourself. Sometimes you don't make them, but you know that goals can be reset and efforts can be redoubled.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People watching is an activity you could do for hours. You find a particularly interesting situation today.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe you don't always have the right words for a delicate situation, but everyone knows you want what's best.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You just can't get that song out of your head. The chorus has anchored in your brain, and you might well be stuck with it all day.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). When you were a kid, it seemed like the last 15 minutes of school passed the slowest. You'll have that feeling today, but only because you have something you've been looking forward to.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Moving through a crowd is something you do well. Say hi, share an amusing anecdote, all the while moving toward your goal. This is a metaphor for your life.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 1). You have the perfect combination of calm stability and exciting chaos in your life this year. This is partly due to the stellar relationships you cultivate. Others accompany you on various journeys, though you know that you are in charge of your own adventure. There's a move in November. You'll soar professionally in January. Aquarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 49, 30, 14 and 10.
