ARIES (March 21-April 19). Today's successful encounter will have absolutely nothing to do with luck. The magic occurs when you can connect the value you bring to a person's rather specific needs and wants.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Just because you've killed a few plants in your time doesn't mean you're an enemy to vegetation. Also, establishing a connection with an animal will be lucky.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your personal experience is much more valuable than anything someone would look up on the Internet. People want the inside story from you, so share it.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Would you rather know or be surprised? You'll have a choice. The evening features close relationships and loved ones interacting with comfortable familiarity.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll only get what you expect if you carefully outline and communicate those expectations to others. Bonus points for doing so with style and a sense of fun.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Get back in contact with that friend from long ago. There are still good times ahead of you. If you make time for love, it will be abundantly there for you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You thought you were dealing with the cream of the crop, and it turns out this is the skimmed milk. This no-frills version may actually be a lot healthier for you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'd rather do something new and mess it up than repeat the past in the same mildly satisfying way. Being willing to take a risk will put you in line for an exciting opportunity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Creation is one process. Analysis is another process. As long as you do not try to do them at the same time, your work will be both happy and productive.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you do "real," you're also going to have to do "I'm sorry." There will be a lot in between the two - relationships are complex - and you'll figure it out as you go today.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're being offered something big, so dig in. If you bite off more than you can chew, there are many ways of dealing - and with your social savvy, you're likely to be discreet about it at that.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Part of love and nurturing is letting go. It's more than trusting the other person to do the right thing; it's also respecting that they have their own "thing" quite separate from you.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 10). You'll announce your goals to a trusted few, and this act sets you on course for a fascinating year. Once you commit, there is no going back, and your friends will keep you accountable. June brings a contract. July has you thinking big and being a leader. August encourages your softer side, and you'll share tender emotions. Libra and Cancer people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 12, 18, 26 and 29.
