ARIES (March 21-April 19). The person pressuring you believes that his or her personal agenda is more important than your comfort. You can always decide not to decide.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Remember what you wanted so badly? Now you have it, and you want entirely different things.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The wonderful parts of life are often offset by something dismal. You deal with each scenario as it comes, interpreting it in your own poetic way.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Instead of trying to cope with the circumstance, you want to change it. You have a hard time accepting the fact that not everything is within your control.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You have great feelings for beauty now, and you'll direct people's attention to things they wouldn't have noticed.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Power's sources are not always apparent. Keep this in mind as you assess your opposition and strategize your own rise to power.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As valid as your concerns may be, it's not important that each one gets addressed now. Helping others who are in need will give you the benefit of perspective.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). In the heat of the moment, your conversational partner will try to prove a wrongheaded point. Let it go.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your golden productivity hours will be in the morning. Do a job at 9 a.m. when your mind is fresh. At 9 p.m., the same job will take you twice as long.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Things that look good "on paper" look even better when carefully arranged within the electrified framework of a popular social-media site. The reality of such things may be nonexistent. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The egos involved at work may slow everyone's progress. There are politics to be played here.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don't like to be tricked by anyone. People who do not stop a wrong from happening are culpable, and you'll do what it takes to deliver justice.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 21). It's not about being the most talented or outstanding; heaven's will is carried out through your simple, unassuming ways. You will be praised, paid and rewarded, but that won't matter to you nearly as much as the good that comes from your loving actions. June is romantic, October adventurous, November lucrative. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 21, 31, 50 and 43.
