ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's been said that you can't fit a square peg in a round hole, but this depends on what the peg is made of. Similarly, you feel willing to adjust to make things work today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People have their own ideas about what's amusing, and it's not always easy to get them to loosen up and laugh. But your brand of humor has universal appeal.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some things worth doing are nonsensical, at least on the surface, but you're compelled by deeper reasoning.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). This is not a day to waste time questioning. Do what needs to be done.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A cellphone can be an alarm clock, a map, a camera and a thousand other things. You'll meet a person who is similarly versatile, and the relationship will serve multiple purposes.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Listen with an open heart, but don't advise. Unless you've experienced a similar circumstance, it would be overstepping to assume you know how another person feels.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You shouldn't have to fight to stay in charge of what happens in your own domain. Alas, if you have something good going on, there will always be those who want to home in on it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You build an easy rapport with fellow water signs today - that's Cancer, Pisces and other Scorpios. Professional and platonic conversations lead to emotional bonds that go deeper.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It makes sense to pursue what you enjoy and try to get paid for it, too. But there are some things that are kept pure by leaving money out of the equation.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Most hypnotists don't really use fob watches to put subjects in a trance. Similarly, you don't need a prop to command attention, because you have the power of your voice and intention.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The good thing about not being "normal" is that it allows you to see how "normal" has been a sham all along.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your plan will get better when you know more, but don't spend all of your time gathering information. At some point, you have to jump into the game.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 16). This is a passionate time. You'll express yourself in such an engaging way that you'll earn fans. June shows a domestic decision. Tired of toeing someone else's line, you'll start your own venture in July. Profits follow an excellent plan. Test your ideas out, and enlist the help of experts to get you rocking and rolling. Aries and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 9, 22, 28 and 19.
