ARIES (March 21-April 19). Bad feelings have a way of getting trapped and festering. One way to ease the tension between people is to air it out.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You love what you do, and you do what you love - that is, at least some of the time.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Give yourself fully to the task that is set before you, and you'll succeed.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Everyone has a story, even that annoying guy at work. Listening to someone's story is, at best, very illuminating.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your plan is coming together. Remember when it was nothing but a big question mark? Then it became a somewhat unclear and murky map.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The detours you take and the diversions you chase will prove astoundingly productive

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When people ask how you are, consider telling them that you are "peachy" or "rockin" ' or "fabulous."

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There's something you need, and you are willing to put up with a lot to have this in your life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Dream a little crazier, more colorful and bigger, too. Your mind is so artistic now. Your fantasies are rich with excitement that you can easily bring into your real-world activities.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Lift the stipulations you have attached to your day. This is the only way you can make sure you have a good time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Gloss up your image. For the most part, glamour creates opportunities, and opportunities create income.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll work on several elements of a project at once. When your work is this spread out, it won't look like much at first. But as you build, something impressive comes into view.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 8). This is your year of profound insight. You could touch the lives of others by writing your memoirs, speaking publicly and/or teaching. Your commitment to a loved one is a source of great joy and positivity. You'll travel together in July. Adjustments to your habits bring long-lasting and healthy results in September. Aries and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 3, 15, 42 and 17.
