ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're not always a social butterfly, but you'll certainly make the rounds today and benefit greatly from the effort. Before the sun goes down, you'll have touched base with a lot of people.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're happiest when you're helping people. Positive words and general appreciation will boost spirits and make people want to be at their best around you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Interesting things will get dug up today. A heavy emotion with roots in childhood will be in there, too. That one will take more courage to deal with than you expect. Pat yourself on the back tonight.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're not too concerned about the long term right now, because there's an urgency to unburden your heart that takes precedence. Do what you need to do for love, and let the chips fall.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). In an emotionally healthy mindset, you like the ones who like you and you prize those who treat you well, and when a person doesn't treat you well, that person's value diminishes in your eyes.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your intellectual powers are even more augmented than usual, so the question becomes: What problem can you solve today with that analytical brain of yours?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The middle child of the zodiac, you have a tendency to be rather selfless. Be careful not to be so focused on helping and highlighting others that you forget to serve your own needs.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don't expect people to leave their egos at the door; it's just not going to happen today. The best they can do is offer their ego up to your mercy and hope you will be gentle in the handling.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know the appropriate thing to say, but you don't always choose it. You'll be admired for this (in contrast with the pity and annoyance garnered by those who don't seem to know or care about the social rules).

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The secret to turning up your charisma is this: Think in terms of fun moments. Do this and you'll stop worrying about how you're being perceived. The future will take care of itself.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're curious about your environment and about people and what stories they may be keeping behind the facade of normalcy. Your curiosity will set the stage for a magical encounter.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A proverb says, "I felt sorry for myself because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet." Some may need to see a scenario of poorer fortunes to feel grateful, but not you. Gratitude is your entire attitude.
