ARIES (March 21-April 19). You are not completely immune to social incentives, but awards, prizes and the like have little to do with your happiness, identity or sense of purpose.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're building the secretive elements of surprise and mystery. Thinking outside yourself will help.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). For some people, home is a place. For others, it's a feeling. For you, it's people. Make more time for these people.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're feeling even more inclusive than usual and are willing to bring people into your mix who might not match and who will most certainly broaden your horizons on many levels.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are generous, but you'll be turned off by those who ask for what they don't need or for what they could do for themselves.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). For jobs like the one you're faced with today, you need a partner who could double as a bulldog.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have an excellent sense of how far you can take a joke or how much work you can delegate to others. You are highly empathetic.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have no tolerance for suspicion or jealousy these days in yourself or in others. That's why you'll gravitate toward people without ulterior motives.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have an overall sense that things are getting better and that you're part of the reason that this is true. It's about doing good in the world and watching the trend catch on.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Frustration is a good sign. It tells you that what you're doing isn't working. This is the information you need to find out what will work.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Matters of fashion, communication and self-image will be on your mind, and you'll have fun honing your style.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll experience a breakthrough. The old path has ended, and it's nice to be onto something new.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 13). You'll be attracted to more mature and reasonable people, and these relationships make your life easier and drama-free. You are still just as creative, though, and you'll learn techniques to increase your productivity, too. Save your money! The end of August brings an opportunity that will require some cash. Capricorn and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 24, 38, 27 and 44.
