ARIES (March 21-April 19): You're a rock star and can get plenty of attention. However, you may miscalculate the opinions, ability, or power of others. You could take control at the wrong time. Keep your money in your pocket.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't be too quick on the trigger where final decisions are concerned. Just wait until additional information arrives. Focus on developing an awareness of what truly gives you lasting joy and you may change your mind.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): When you overcome your fears, you may feel triumphant. You might fear that there won't be enough money to get you through to the end of the month, or that you don't have the financial security you crave.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Collect autographs. You could meet someone famous or rub shoulders with fascinating personalities. Other people could view you as especially talented. Keep your money under wraps, especially if the gambling bug bites.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Let your imagination run wild. Keep the lines of communication open with a significant other. It's far better to take notes and use your ideas later than to take matters into your own hands now and make a major error.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When you're hot, you're hot. Capitalize on your sparkling personality to win attention and gain support. If you're looking to make a fabulous impression, get out in public where you can mingle and be seen.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Test your patience or it will test you. People may seem critical of your work or anxious to demonstrate one-upmanship when teamwork would be a better solution. Remain calm, cool and collected at all times.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): By listening to those with experience you can reach new heights. A kite flies higher and farther when it has a tail and is controlled from the ground. Use knowledge and be methodical to win your wings.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Easy does it. Handle emotional issues with care and sidestep confrontations. Use energy constructively and clean out closets rather than dredge up dead issues. Togetherness and harmony return late in the day.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Accept challenges as a mental exercise and competitions as a test of skill. Be as objective as possible if someone starts a debate. Be sure to get to work on time and complete assignments in the timely manner.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Business before pleasure might be the motto for the day. Competition with others could trigger wanderlust, or you may feel challenged to jump into action. Stick to routines and avoid starting new ventures.
IF AUGUST 6 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: A more open attitude to new ideas is developing and the next six months may see a change in your point of view. In September, you have more vision and sound judgment than usual so that's a good time to make plans for the future and reassess your lifestyle. Unexpected blessings can signal that it is time to take steps to improve your life. You may be highly popular in October and people will be more appreciative of your talents. This is an ideal time to interview for a new job, change careers, or look for a soul mate. The very best time to settle down into a groove with a committed relationship or with a new job or business is January-February, when you have the drive and ambition to make your dreams come true.
