ARIES (March 21-April 19). What happened made a memory, and the memory caused you to want to return for more. Decide carefully now. The cycle will make a chain; the chain will make a bond; the bond forms your very character, and by extension, life.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're usually so constant in your personality and choices that it always surprises you when certain people bring out a different side of you. The surprise will be a good one today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Problems from childhood show up in your adult life, feeling exactly the same as they always did. It's a gift - an opportunity to handle things differently and finally feel differently about it, too.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). No generation can rule forever. The torch must be passed. Today, those in authority either don't want to give it up, or are making sure the next group is ready.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One way of effectively dealing with people is to ignore their outbursts and misbehaviors and focus just on what they are doing right. This method works wonders.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don't seek publicity, and yet it finds you in a way, with your stellar reputation preceding you with today's business in an important and most helpful manner.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Is it them, or is it you? This is the question today, as daily discourse seems to jitter and bang along instead of going smoothly. It's them. But with a little extra grease, you can still smooth this one over.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Relationship patterns will intensify. This isn't really how you wanted it to go, but there's something good in it, too. Step back. Focus on your role, not theirs.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Specializing in everything would be impossibleYet, you do have a knack for getting the hang of things quickly today, and you'll find that, before long, you know more than most.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What you wear will matter quite a lot more than seems right. This is about comfort and appropriateness for the elements as much as it is about projecting an effective social image.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It will be easier than usual to get ahold of your thoughts and direct them in a helpful way. You'll take advantage of this mental clarity, using it to enhance your personal life.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This is no time to get mired in the complexities, though they'll be presented in an enticingly sticky way. Perspective is everything today. The less you think of something as a problem, the less of a problem it becomes.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 28). Your willingness to extend yourself beyond your boundaries and go where others won't will give you a distinct advantage in business through the end of the year. Your personal life blossoms as you build confidence in many areas. Bonus money comes in October, November, and June. Scorpio and Aquarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 29, 1, 22, and 15.
