ARIES (March 21-April 19). What you have to say needs to be said. So plant yourself evenly on both feet and deliver the message.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Objects and people can't bring you happiness. Just don't forget that the happiness comes from you, not the game you're playing.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone needs a friend who will stick by them through good times and bad. If you've let such a person drift out of touch, reel him or her back into your life.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You care about interactions with others, and that sometimes makes you dread social functions. Relax and enjoy solitude, and you'll be more in the mood to mingle next week.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). When loved ones want to help you, let them do it. Gracious acceptance of help is a kind of gift you can give.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don't shrink yourself to fit in with a small-minded group. Instead, find the people who are thinking and living on the same scale as you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You are a part of a group, but it's what you do on your own to fulfill your soul's purpose that you'll be most proud of now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll take on a task that many have taken on before you. Take control of the situation and execute the job in a way that is uniquely you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll be dealing with shrewd players in a challenging game. Never let the others know fully what you're up to. Keep them guessing about you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The organizations you belong to are sometimes more work than fun. Right now they're all worthwhile, though.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have the right to be happy. Enjoy life and share that enjoyment with others.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don't have to go to the Grand Canyon or the pyramids to experience wonder. It's in the eyes of another person.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 28). You make highly original choices this year, which is why you repeatedly land in new and novel situations. Family makes you proud in the next six weeks. You'll net a professional goal in July. August features improvements and additions to your team and exciting news, too. You'll glide into an exclusive situation in September. Leo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 16, 1, 26, 48 and 9.
