ARIES (March 21-April 19). What could be better than a satisfying reversal? The bit of poetic justice you witness today will give you a very specific kind of joy to revel in.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today's cosmic gift is a surprise happening that you suspect only you would totally love; this sends you floating on a felicitous mood far into the night.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). To really connect with people is more than a talent for you these days; it's beginning to feel like a responsibility. You'll be

rewarded in many different ways.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're the one with the ideas. The others think that you get the fun part, but you know the weight of this job. If it doesn't turn out well, the blame is passed your way. Take the risk.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll be the communicator for your crew, not because you understand any better than they do, not because you have inside information or experience: only because you're the best communicator.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). How can you elevate this simple, tedious job before you to the level of art? The answer is, maybe you can't. But keep adjusting your attitude and you may get it into the zone of "craft."

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's one thing to complete the task, quite another to commit the completion into a system. The current one is either not as good as it could be, or nonexistent. You won't regret the hours you put in.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Yours is not a one-kind-of-affection-fits-all situation. Each of your friendships is different from the rest. You don't decide how you're going to love; the friendship dictates it. Show up, ready to give.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). One way is to imagine yourself getting to the goal and run this movie in your head again and again. Whether or not it works, it will teach you about yourself and your relationship to this aim.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Brilliant minds like Albert Einstein and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe agreed on this one thing: Poets go first; scientists catch up later. Do not discount your nonsensical imaginings.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll learn what you need to know and what you don't need to know. Best of all, you'll learn how to tell the difference between the two to acquire both knowledge and wisdom.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your fascination with someone gives you a window into a different world. At some point you may even become more fascinated with that world.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 10). Friendships give you enormous gifts this year. You may even be surprised at the fullness of attention, the accolades and the deep affection coming your way. February opens a new avenue of fascination. May and June are your prime opportunities to expand your influence. You'll be appointed in August. Libra and Cancer adore you. Lucky numbers: 6, 40, 24, 10 and 28.
