ARIES (March 21-April 19). Who you are in the moment is who you are. You might not know what to say, but you'll speak from your heart, and you'll pull people in.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People think of you as a caregiver and gravitate toward you when they feel needy. But they also want to be around you when they feel strong and ready to give back.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Partnership will be important to your success, and you're particularly well suited to a partner who is inclined to troubleshoot and solve problems.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You sometimes feel as though you've lost the throughline of a relationship, but today you'll be reminded why you chose someone and why you continue to choose this person every day.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want to show your excitement, but with everything else going on, the need for restraint and taste will also be apparent. If you don't know something, ask.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The world is serious enough without your adding any heaviness to the mix. That's why you love to be around people who laugh at your jokes and give off a generally light, fun vibration.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There's a strong sense of justice in the way things play out today. Those who make the effort to climb a tall tree will get the fruit they deserve.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'd prefer to spend your hours building your talent rather than fixing your weaknesses. This strategy will prove wise.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Thought patterns can be like vampires, sucking your soul and leaving you with little energy for the things that bring you joy. Luckily, you don't need a wooden stake to interrupt the pattern.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Money can be a powerful motivator, but not today. You're more interested in the good that can come of hard work.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Push yourself physically. Get good and tired so you'll sleep soundly. Vitality will return in time for the weekend.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You've veered slightly from the aims you made at the start of the week. Today's efforts will make up for lost time.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 2). You'd like to go for the kind of awards that might be easily achieved with a simple, straightforward plan, and yet what really appeals to you is the stranger challenge that no one has been able to figure out yet. Your originality and maverick ways net brilliant results. June and September will pay you well. Wedding bells ring in July. Leo and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 33, 9 and 19.
