ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's no joy in working for external approval. For satisfying results, do it for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you're not seeing the situation as a game, how will you play to win? Plan several moves in advance. A move backward can yield a giant leap forward.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone has different tolerances. You regularly take on work that others can't deal with, and there is also someone who would take the jobs you don't want.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). No one (including you) knows all of you, though many will want to know more today as the reserved mood you're in casts a fog of mystery.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If someone gets frustrated with you over something unimportant, it's either not about that at all or not unimportant. Meet frustration with patience and defuse the whole situation.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What you are doing must enrich people's lives, or you won't care to do it. Your creativity and high standard of quality will be essential to your success.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). For you,

romance isn't so much a feeling as it is a way of life. Your affection attracts beauty; beauty attracts affection.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Anyone who is informing you by telling you how to feel is not informing you. This applies to matters of news, gossip, art, commerce and more.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Whether your efforts are good enough to win, to be popular, to please - this is not the point. The point is in making these efforts consistently.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will choose your best response to events from a range of possibilities. From a calm and centered place, you will have many more options.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). True love shouldn't be stressful. It should relax you - make you healthier even. Love is healing. Amorous feelings support your immune system.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Avoid hearing or giving excuses; explanations will be equally unlucky today. It will be lucky to acknowledge a less-than-optimal reality and describe how you're going to make it right.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 12). There will be more demands on you to be creative this year, which is what you wanted. You'll adjust your lifestyle to accommodate what's required of you over the next six weeks. Love is your touchstone and comfort in June, your fun and excitement in August. Cancer and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 30, 28, 5 and 12.
