ARIES (March 21-April 19). Stay away from miserable people, and if you feel low, be sure to hang around someone more upbeat.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can't always choose your neighbors, but you can choose your neighborhood. Use this as a guideline as you move into a new area of interest today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some people enjoy talking about subjects they know little about. Humor them if you can. Your casual acceptance means more than you know.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Is it still awkward for you to tell people what you do? That's because you're always catching up to who you are now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A diverse team helps you get through life gracefully. Often the best solution to your problem comes from a lazy person who doesn't want to work so hard for results.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You'll be meeting new people, some of whom you're not so sure about. Once you laugh - honestly and truly laugh - the relationship is on. You love a person who can make you laugh.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You're good at loving but are not always as good at letting yourself be loved. Challenge yourself to accept someone's adoration.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Find fast-talking company, and get into the mix. How will you keep your tongue sharp and your wit quick if you don't work it out every once in a while by sparring with a worthy partner?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Shakespeare wrote that "the course of true love never did run smooth," and yet if he could see your experience on this day, he might rethink the notion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You'll be attuned to the energy that people put out, and you'll understand much about them by quietly taking in what they project.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There is some tricky business ahead of you. Ask your friends whether they think you need more input. Their answers will surprise you.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Infatuation is blind, but not love. Love sees the whole array of good, bad, beautiful and ugly. It knows the spectrum and out of sheer grace chooses to focus on the good and beautiful.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 14). Your insistence on keeping the highest standard will finally pay off - proof that you were right for holding out instead of settling long ago. In 2014, you'll be inspired by work in an entirely different field from the one you're in. February features a signed contract or shared vows. May sends you on a quest. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 22, 8, 40 and 19.
