ARIES (March 21-April 19). When desire is fed, the inner animal is satisfied - but not the greedy human mind, which, once sated, only develops bigger appetites. You'll have to convince the others to relax and be reasonable, and they may not listen.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You really can boost your immune system by thinking positive thoughts. But first you have to neutralize the negativity offered up by your critical inner voice.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don't know enough to tackle the project

you're considering, but that's not a good enough reason to pass on it.

You'll learn. You always do.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you expend extraordinary energy doing a seemingly ordinary thing, you'll elevate this aspect of daily life to the realm of "art form."

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Instinct has led you to your current pursuit. You may not know until after you get to work the significance of what you're doing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You're the one who will bring a grand plan to fruition. You are tuned in to everyone and everything that can lead to your success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may not be able to remove the forces that oppose you, but once you accept that you are better for having to contend with them, you will start to see the unique advantages of your position.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Those you cheer for will be moved to act confidently and accomplish what they didn't think they could. Use some of that supportiveness on yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Look deeper into the things that intrigue and fascinate you. There's a reason you are drawn by these pursuits, and they will connect you to good fortune.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Why not be greedy for love, goodness and health? One of your minor but very fond wishes will come true.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You still may feel that you're not entirely free. Consider exactly why you don't feel at liberty to say and do as you wish, and you'll be closer to freedom.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Get focused, and you'll be astounded at what you can accomplish. With unflagging energy, you'll tackle the primary things you wanted to get finished before the end of the year.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 26). You only dish out what you would like to eat. So your offerings to life are delicious, and life repays you by feeding you all that your heart, mind and body needs. What you learn about your history and family will impact your plans. Something you own will be valued at a high price, and you'll get a chance to cash out. Gemini and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 28, 21, 4, 17 and 13.
