ARIES (March 21-April 19). Making a favorable impression on the family and friends of those you love will be of extreme importance. Put forth the effort.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Instead of asking what would make you "pretty happy," go for the big thrills. This day will be memorable.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are unpretentious, and so you know to pay attention to the less flashy individuals around you. Look for quiet intelligence.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Doing twice what you did yesterday is possible because there will be no impedance. It doesn't matter what anyone else is doing.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). At the end of the day, your only concern will be whether you have loved enough. Show your love and give generously of yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may be undercutting yourself and wishing for far too little. Be bolder with your dreams, and then believe in them.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's something odd about today's circumstances. The strangest part of all is that no one seems to notice it but you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Things are about to open up for you. Brainstorm to figure out whether you have more choices than you're currently seeing.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Once you understand the mechanics of a situation, you'll come up with ways to improve the look and feel of them. You're a designer at heart.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have mastered the art of delegating. However, today, if you can do it yourself, don't ask another person to do it for you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll take care of yourself in all the ways that matter to you. And someone else will fill in with care what you wouldn't have thought of.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Everyone will be chipping in. The one who gives a dollar might be the biggest giver of all - if it's his only dollar. Contributions are relative.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 30). You set an exciting goal for your personal life, and your entire scene is energized by this aim. Loved ones open up new resources just for you in January. You will be the authority figure in February, and you must be careful to use your power well. You will be featured in a performance in March. There's a windfall in May. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 1, 21, 16 and 50.
