ARIES (March 21-April 19). Today's luck is subtle. You will get the chance at an opportunity that never was available to your parents. Seize it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Small steps would normally get you from point "A" to point "B" - but not today. What's necessary is a running leap.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Unfinished business is too heavy of a mental weight. Tie up loose ends.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are a favorite playmate of the universe. Today's game is vigorous and challenging.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your meetings will be more important than you realize. Give yourself twice as much time to get ready, and spend a good deal of that time psyching yourself up.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You obeyed authority, served the boss and put in your time doing thankless tasks. And though the work was considered lowly, the rewards were high.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are used to enjoying yourself - some days less than others. The remedy is simple. Give a greater level of attention to your endeavors.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Better to do one thing completely today than to attempt many and leave them unfinished.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be amazed at the people who find success more challenging than failure. You take to winning like you were born to do it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). External events will be more easily ignored than internal mental chatter, but you shut out both in favor of finishing something that is very important to you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your perspective is different from how others experience life. You must distance yourself in order to decide what is truly important.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Something you do effortlessly is of great value to another person. Recognize what it is, and deliver it to the one who needs it.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 22). You'll move up in the world. Authority figures who once challenged you will extol your virtues. Relationships are smooth going into 2011, and you'll have wonderful times with friends and family. In January, you'll use your power to help someone attain what you have. There's a trip in March and a windfall in October. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 11, 3, 33 and 18.
