ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you feel that you keep repeating the same behavior over and over again, today provides just the pattern interruption you need.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's not about finding the right person for you; it's about being the right person for you. Give yourself a treat to show your love.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The shift in consciousness that you need is not difficult to make. Rather, it's so easy that you might even call it fun.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you want to get results, you have to be the squeaky wheel. Normally, you are too cool to take this approach, yet there are times when being cool is overrated.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There will be a lull in the action, and it comes at the perfect moment. Sit back and figure out just how to make the most of the recent turn of events.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Because of your charm, grace and charisma, you'll be in a position to keep the social brew bubbling.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You'll be in a position to learn about others. You'll ask questions and focus intently on the answers.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). While someone you know is dreaming about tomorrow, you'll be busy making today worth remembering.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You might try and miss today, which is to be expected for someone who is still learning. You're going to get it eventually if you keep trying.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You sync up with nature in some way, perhaps by connecting with an animal or getting out into the open air.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may feel compelled to tell your side of a story, especially because the other sides of the story seem to be riddled with half-truths.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your sign can change moods as quickly as a chameleon changes colors. But today you'll be in a state of mind that you want to hang on to.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 21). The year starts off on a streak of financial luck. You courageously attempt things at which you are not an expert and wind up broadening your horizons. New people come into your life in January. You land in peculiar circumstances in February and find a way to shine. May brings fun dates. July brings travel. Cancer and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 4, 20, 22 and 19.
