ARIES (March 21-April 19): The drama queen may be seen. You may be acting like one of the characters in "Easy Rider" while expecting everyone else to treat you like the Lord of the Rings. Concentrate on smart business moves.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put your mind to work. Churn out ideas that help you become more efficient and the ideas will pay for themselves. Even good old Ben Franklin knew that a penny saved was a penny earned.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Use your imagination and success will be in the bag. Find a new interest or study that acts as a philosopher's stone, something rumored to turn base metals into valuable ore or add years to the life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can't take half measures. You may force a change and then regret that you didn't take the time to test the waters first. The only thing that will bring success is true commitment and focus on your ambitions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Freedom and commitment blend like oil and water. You may do well if you initiate something of financial importance now, but surprises and emergencies may occur due to a maverick in your midst.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Accept an untraditional invitation. You may get a chance to participate in something completely unique, but you will only find out how extraordinary if you unleash a sense of adventure and say "yes."
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Get out the calculator. There may be checks in the checkbook, but that doesn't mean there is money in the bank. An apology applied at the right time is a bandage that protects a sore spot until it heals.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Share the wealth for your health. Be hospitable and lay out a big spread for visitors or family members. Your willingness to be generous and tolerant makes people think you are wiser than others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The smart man moves his chair over to hide the hole in the carpet. You can add up the debit and liability columns all day long, but don't be too anxious to discuss your own faults or shortcomings.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A baby will never learn to walk if strapped into a carriage. You must set people free so they can develop their talents without restrictions. Encourage independence; watch how loved ones blossom.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The wisdom of the ages helps you become ageless. The ideas or interests that attract you now, such as yoga or a new diet, might trigger an improvement in your health or a more youthful outlook.
IF APRIL 14 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your street smarts will help you make unbeatable business decisions this month but you may be distracted by a certain someone. A relationship that isn't good for you may become clear between now and the end of May. Like the Rolling Stones sang, you might not get what you want, but will surely get what you need. Accept a golden opportunity or a proposal during the next few weeks and life will become a bed of roses. Your popularity hits record lows in November, so maintain a low profile and be sure you have tied up all your loose ends by fall so that nothing from the past can catch up with you.
