ARIES (March 21-April 19): You wake up to the wild and wonderful. You may be challenged to keep up with the social pace due to pressing obligations. Your partner or a friend could be unpredictable. Hold off on key purchases.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be a guiding light. Partners could demonstrate extremes of behavior. It might be your mission to prevent your loved ones from going overboard with a major purchase or taking unnecessary risks.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Put your best foot forward. You could be the target of someone's romantic ardor. Play it cool, since a decision about love could backfire today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don't brood over imagined injustices. If you've been down in the dumps, a brisk walk or a few hours throwing basketballs might revive your spirits and restore equilibrium. Energy creates more energy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The best things in life are free, so take advantage of them. Celestial conditions are improving but are not yet good enough to invest resources or make key purchases. Your tastes may run to the unusual.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Rustle up a romantic rodeo. This isn't a good day to change your mind or put your heart on the line, but you can dream a little and follow up on romantic fantasies. Sympathy is the key to success.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be patient and wise enough to wait out a temporary tense situation without making matters worse by overreacting. If you pound your head against the wall, all you end up with is a sore head.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Take disruptions or surprises in your stride. It might be tempting to make an abrupt about-face regarding a financial matter, but it's better to settle back and until the temptation passes.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't jump out of the frying pan into the flames. Don't act on impulses and whims where loved ones are concerned. A special someone is waiting for you to take the lead.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You might make new friends on the Internet or flirt at the store, but the most important person in the world might be right by your side. Best friends can become closer and more intimate.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Concentrate on being compassionate. Show affection to loved ones by doing what you imagine would be pleasing. Finances can take a turn for the worse if you go gaga over a popular fad.
IF NOVEMBER 9 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Watch your p's and q's when dealing with authority figures between now and the end of February. You may have a tendency to feel unappreciated and could be overly critical with others and they may find fault with you. Wait until this period is over to reassess your situation and don't make impulsive decisions. Any romance that falls by the wayside is not worth crying over, but one that survives the winter is a sure thing. Love could come your way in April or May, or you may find that you're suddenly the top banana in an important endeavor. That is also a great time period to begin a new job or make a commitment. New love may stir your heart and add motivation to your life.
