ARIES (March 21-April 19): Jump on the bandwagon. Support your friends on a key issue or prove that you are a staunch supporter of someone's favorite worthy cause. As far as social activities are concerned, the more the merrier.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keep an ear to the ground. Get a clue about someone who secretly harbors romantic notions about you or about behind-the-scene assistance. You didn't get where you are on your own merit.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You are big hearted enough to forgive and forget. You may be fooled for a while, but that could be your own fault. Unflagging enthusiasm for the job at hand is the best way to acquire the rewards you are seeking.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Temper benevolence with down-to-earth common sense. Don't forget to reward the helpful person who has been reliable and essential to your success. Don't be extravagant; reward in proportion to value.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It takes two to tango. You can't obtain favors unless you are a favorite first. You may undermine your own efforts if you refuse to cooperate with others. Be tireless in your pursuit of a love interest.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Love can be a powerful inspiration. Float away on a magic carpet ride of ecstatic feelings with a special someone. Don't hand over the controls to a new acquaintance or someone you are not sure of.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Play hard to get for the best success. When you are actively looking for love, every bit of body language seems like an invitation. You may seem quite attractive to a large number of potential partners.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Drive a hard bargain. Your feelings might change or the facts could be seen in a new light before the weekend ends. Be fair and even-handed when dividing the proceeds from a profitable enterprise.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Life and love can both be gambles. It is your job to know when to hold them and when to fold them. Don't ante up your heart even if several fascinating people vie for your undivided attention.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A Joe Friday, "Just the facts, ma'am," attitude won't get you far this weekend. Inspiring lines from a romantic movie and some silver-tongued flattery will grease the cogs of your social interactions.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Concentrate on participating in social events and outings. Find something good to say about someone, even if it causes you to think long and hard. Seclusion might be needed to put puzzle pieces together.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do what you want. "Out with the old and in with the new" is the way to deal with persnickety people and problematic social activities. Amorous fires may be burning brightly in the wee hours of the night.

IF MAY 14 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: If you truly need a helping hand, the universe will bring you an answer to your prayers during the next four weeks. People who are not good for you seem to fade out of the picture while your true blue supporters are under foot. Feel free to accept new opportunities and move ahead without anything or anyone holding you back. In late June and early July, romantic notions could rear their head and a vacation or amorous adventure might recharge your batteries. Your personal business skills are better than usual in September, so that is a good time to tackle financial and career matters. Mid-October through mid-November maintain a low profile and do not launch key strategies or accept new responsibilities, such as for instance signing for a loan.
