ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you haven't learned how to throw a party with minimal effort, this is your lucky day. When people decide in the spur of the moment to meet at your place, you'll figure it out quickly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Just because you mess up sometimes doesn't make you a bad person. Forgive yourself. Bonus: It will make you more compassionate toward others.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may experience an instant attraction to someone you don't know. Getting to know this person could reinforce or erode the attraction. Say "hello" and find out.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You got into a situation by following your instincts and attractions. Today you'll come to a point in the journey in which a conscious, reasonable decision must be made about what to do next.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're a discerning person, but if you can get through the day insulting nothing and no one, you'll win a prize reserved for the diplomatic and optimistic.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Winning or losing the battle looks pretty much the same today: like battling. The real winners are those who find something to agree on without a fight.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don't be afraid of your intense emotions. It is the emotional heights that will define your experience of the next three days.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Today you would rather burn your hours in passionate, inefficient and possibly pointless ways and create glowing memories in the process.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you provide people with reasons to accept you, you'll earn acceptance but feel nothing. If you don't make any effort and are accepted anyway, you'll feel loved.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may finally admit to yourself that certain people make you nervous. It will take minimal exploration into your own psyche to determine why.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may need more attention than usual today. Give it to yourself rather than letting this need impede the social flow.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are those who would rather act aloof and trigger your fear of rejection than risk being hurt themselves. These kinds of games would have worked on you in another era, but right now they'll seem like a waste of your time.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 19). You'll compare yourself with others only to the extent that it helps you maintain a competitive edge. You'll strike an admirable balance between love and work. Also, you'll be funny when it counts, and that's part of your appeal to your many followers. There's a windfall in June and September. You'll be enmeshed in a type of family in August. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 2, 33, 35 and 17.
