ARIES (March 21-April 19). You have a multifaceted skill set. When you don't get to use some of these skills for a long time, you start to feel diminished. You forget all of who you are. To be able to exercise your competence will be a major lift to your spirit.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When beliefs fuse into something more like stubbornness, it's time to re-examine. Inflexible thoughts lead to intolerance and restriction. Go the opposite way and you'll invite freshness.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It's true that things can get pretty competitive in your professional arena. Perhaps it seems counterintuitive, but as you approach with compassion, caring and affection, this will only enhance your professional potential.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Living by your values makes you a success. It can be done at any income level, as it's not a matter of high finance but of high return on the soul's potential.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The winner of the game isn't always one who wins the trophy; often it's the one who wins hearts. To be better is to be kinder. In the long run, kindness and love rule.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The sunshine is in you. Search for it, call on it, and draw it up. This will be easier when you're around people who crave levity and laughter as much as you do today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The bridge from one moment to the next is called courage. Don't worry about where you'll find it. March on.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Caring about the way your project looks and feels doesn't make you superficial, it makes you human.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). How about you: Do you doubt what can't be seen, or do you believe in the magic of invisible forces? It's evidenced by today's unexplainable phenomenon.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Life is a swing: The pendulum's nature is to flee; the pendulum's nature is to return. Pleasurable circumstances are temporary. So are uncomfortable ones. Hang on for the change.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some will pray to St. Anthony, the patron saint of lost objects. Others will meditate on the lost object in question, while still others will trace their own steps. Whatever your method, you've a lucky talent for recovery today.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (June 17). Your blessings will multiply; a fairy-godmother type comes into your life in July. Before August is over, you'll figure out something that's vexed you for years. You'll give a life-changing gift in October. Your secret wish gets a plan in November and a team in January. Until then, keep brainstorming. Scorpio and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 44, 28, 11 and 29.
