ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be the best that you can be. You have the energy and drive to turn your creative ideas into reality. Valentine's Day might give you an excellent excuse to go out with friends for some lighthearted fun.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Grab a bag of candy hearts on your way to work and share them with coworkers. You can afford to be a bit more generous and open-minded than usual. Be upbeat when you speak to others and they may turn into friends.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Full Moons often bring out the best in you since the Moon rules your sign. Don't ignore serious business affairs early in the day to pursue romantic fun and games. The evening is much better for gestures of affection.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don't be too glum if flowers and candy aren't sitting by your breakfast plate this morning. Late evening is the best time to enjoy romantic Valentine's Day treats. The Full Moon in your sign brings out the best in you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If love is blind, then love at first sight could be a mere fairy tale. Remain tolerant of inconsistencies and unpredictability for the best success. The most important things will fall into place to bring delight and security, as well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your best features will gain notice, but only if you reach just a bit further. People may appreciate your diplomacy and gentle, unassuming ways, but are only going to give you credit if you really exert yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put the past behind you and don't look back. Old wounds can heal quickly when smothered by kindness and forgiveness. A significant other might do something sweet and endearing to make your heart glad.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your exuberance and joy in life will be contagious and people will honor their commitments to you. Spend quality time with your favorite people. Be sure to pick up a Valentine's Day card for a special someone.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Only the strong survive. You may be faced with tough decisions about career or finances. Your inclination may be to abandon an old friend or existing plan, but you'd be wise not to take drastic steps right now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Press the pedal down further and give the engine of your desires more gas. This is a good time to put plans and ideas that require executive abilities into motion. Be prepared to shine when it's your turn to show off skills.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There's more to a drumbeat than rhythm. The beating heart is actually a muscle, and like any muscle it requires plenty of exercise to grow stronger. This is a perfect time to share your heart with a loved one and grow closer.
IF FEBRUARY 14 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your dreams and hopes can grow during the next several weeks, and you should write down your blossoming ideas. A taste for romance might make this a great time for a vacation or weekend travel. In April, you have it "all together" and can make profitable, sound decisions about career, investments or your job. Join an organization if invited, because the new contacts you meet will help you achieve success in your chosen field. In June, you may be poised to make a change just as happy coincidence brings you an excellent opportunity. Get as much accomplished and set into motion as possible by the end of July because the stars are not as favorable between then and December.
