ARIES (March 21-April 19). Don't fumble around trying to figure it out in real time when someone else has already written down exactly how to do it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will devote yourself to investigations of the unknown. You appreciate the fascinating magic of unanswered questions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Usually a social butterfly, today you'll be more like the flower: a stationary attraction that has all the other butterflies flittering about and landing for a visit.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Don't expect yourself to know everything already. Even if you think you know, it won't hurt to do more research.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You're more like a lone wolf than a lion today. There's something you must do on your own, without having to compromise along the way.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are socially generous. You know when to step up, get the ball rolling, tell a good story, ask an astute question and, perhaps most importantly, when to get off the stage.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Many people want to be close to you, and yet there's not enough time in the day for so many associations. Choosing wisely will be key now.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll bring life to a gathering. The most important moment happens at the end of the meeting, when commitments are made for the future. It's better to under-promise and over-deliver than the other way around.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You need space and privacy. If you have enough time in solitude, you'll be happy, easy-going and charming when it's time to socialize.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). No one likes a know-it-all until a situation arises in which that knowledge is crucial. That's why it's important to share information on a need-to-know basis.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Solutions are at hand when helping hands are around you. Honest, practical people don't care about who gets the credit; they just want to get the job done.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You're careful not to interfere with what other people believe. You'd rather mind your own business.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 22). You are clear about what you desire. You'll put out as much physical energy and enthusiasm as you can muster next month, and this boomerangs back to you in the form of all the support you need to launch your project. In July, much will depend on whose side you're on. November and January are windfall months. Capricorn and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 39, 48, 44, 37 and 45.
