ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be your own best friend. You may experience a conflict between the desire to be a participant in a close relationship and the need to prove you can stand on your own two feet as an independent person.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Sometimes it really is a case of feast or famine. You may be able to arrive at a pleasant compromise but may get more than you bargained for at the same time. Cupid's arrows may land at your feet.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Thoughts of a vacation or a family-oriented event provide the ultimate carrot to speed you through the day. Find ways to unearth what others think and be attentive to the needs of your special someone.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Eat humble pie with a big spoon. Your true financial situation could be illuminated. You might not be able to think through an impasse by yourself but a trusted companion may offer clear advice.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take your time. There is no reason to rush a relationship. It's a good day to get an extra helping hand or ask for small favors. It isn't a good time to put major initiatives into action that involve business strategies.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Flattery may get you somewhere, but you are more ambitious than that. You won't be contented with ending up just anywhere. Aim for what you really want and don't waste time on nonessentials.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Objectivity helps you overcome objections. Compliments from others might feel a bit backhanded, but you can easily rise above petty suspicions. Try to do something different.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Make the right choice right now. Sometimes, it is necessary to defend your territory at all costs, but sometimes it also is better to sit down and reach an agreement that satisfies both sides.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Give peace a chance. A fixation on making an extra dollar or two won't blind you to more spiritual pursuits. Your wry sense of humor makes you a popular addition to any gathering or group.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Keep it on the up and up. Steer clear of gray areas and avoid accepting additional obligations. Emphasize the spiritual, not the material, when dealing with loved ones and business associates.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't push the envelope today. You may yearn for emotional security in a relationship, but might mistake a spark of attraction for the light of commitment. A purchase might come at too high a price.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Happiness is a warm puppy. Puppies don't demand anything in return and are delighted to be in your presence, but need all your attention. In the dog-eat-dog world of commerce you are at a disadvantage.

IF FEBRUARY 16 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Lady Luck is smiling in the direction of your part of the zodiac right now, so take advantage of opportunities, accept offers and don't be afraid to ask for favors. The people rooting on your side of the playing field are close by to champion your cause and the opposition can't get a foot in the door. Anything you launch now has a good chance of being a stunning success. Between May and end of August, play fair and refrain from starting anything important. That's the time to stick to the rules and avoid making waves as your judgment could be less than perfect especially with financial responsibilities.
