ARIES (March 21-April 19). To some extent, you believe as your peers do, though you also have private beliefs that you don't share often. It's a joy when a like-minded person comes along with whom you can converse frankly and honestly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Watch your words, especially those you tell yourself. It does you no good to assume that when bad things happen, it's "just your luck," - especially today, when fortune smiles on you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As for that problem you can't solve - approach it from a theoretical place. Ponder the philosophy that's causing the pain. Then put those thoughts aside and try again for a practical fix.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When it comes to relationships, you have an impeccable sense of rhythm. Every relationship needs closeness and space. You have a knack for sensing the right amount of each.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're not the first one with this problem. It has been experienced by kings and slaves, poets and politicians and saints. The solutions have been written down. Seek the wisdom of the ancients.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Use what works for you. It doesn't matter where the item comes from, but how well you can apply it to your life for the results you've been wanting to achieve.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You do what you do because you are who you are. All that will change when you do different things and become someone else. Nothing is permanent. Change will begin with an inspiration.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Montaigne wondered whether he was playing with his cat, or whether he was a toy to his cat. You may feel similarly toward a love interest today. Stay aware as the week progresses.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Since it requires setting aside self-interest and being guided by curiosity, the person who really tries to get inside the head of another is rare. You do it so regularly, you don't even realize how special you are.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). To endear yourself to a mentor or to serve a good customer would be the very best use of your efforts today. With your natural charms, it shouldn't be hard.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). How is needless fear and anxiety avoided? Scientists worldwide are paid to sort this out, and yet the solution may be quite simple. Identify which fears are "needless," and focus elsewhere.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). To believe in the probability that something wonderful will happen is often the cause of something wonderful's happening. If you never lose that belief, you can never be wholly disappointed.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 22). If laughter is a jog for your insides, you could be an marathon runner with all the humor you get this year. Friends and children love how you make them laugh and will spar with you often. The deal you strike in January will favor you for years to come. Invest in August. Capricorn and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 45, 28, 15, and 40.
