ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you didn't sign up to be the hero, don't worry, the real heroes never do. They get roped into doing the right thing. And usually by their own heartstrings, and lacking the stomach for cowardice, they keep up the trend.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your workload will be intense today, but so will your energy. The extent of determination will be tested. What they don't know is that you'll never give up. You will hang in there as long as possible.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You combine that bright intellect with the human touch to unbeatable effect. The tendency to include everyone, even (and especially!) those who don't fit in is part of your enormous charm.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Each person has a level of untidiness they are willing to accept. Woe to the people who go beyond that point today, as you're in no mood to let it slide. This is true of both your emotional and your physical world.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This is one of those fast-paced days when you'll feel that life is getting out of hand ... or maybe you're just realizing that it never really was in your hands at all.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A different frame doesn't change the picture per se, but it changes how we look at the picture. Experiment with this concept as you're in a position to direct someone's attention.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). For you, the hardest part of being tolerant is tolerating the intolerant. It's part of the work though, and you'll regret it if you let someone's uncongenial attitude get under your skin.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You like to interact with those who are confident in their knowledge. It is far less favorable to interact with those who assume their way is the only correct one.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Maybe there are no stupid questions, but there are definitely questions that open new worlds. And there are also questions that open cans of worms.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There's nothing you could say to make someone understand better than they do at this moment. It's not your fault; it's the nature of maturity. People can't mature faster than they do. Give love, not words.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your life has been full of surprises and serendipity and it's about to get even more interesting. The more people you know, the more likely you are to run into someone you know.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are many who ask for good advice who won't follow it. Maybe what they are looking for is not advice so much as validation, support, and a general sense that they are not in this alone.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 24). It's said that a smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, but there will be plenty of time for learning to handle life's storms later. Enjoy the glassy sailing now! You'll make money and feel the warmth of love. June's challenges strengthen family. September begins a thrilling educational process. Libra and Leo adore you. Lucky numbers are: 4, 18, 25, 37, and 1.
