ARIES (March 21-April 19). Understanding your emotions won't necessarily change them. But it will empower you to know that you could choose to feel differently if and when you so desire.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your strength and intensity come through in everything you do. People read it coming off of you. You could be asleep, and this would still be true. You just can't help but be who you are.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Projects involve some degree of mental drudgery. Because you're willing to think your way through the problems and do what it takes to solve them, you will succeed.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will direct your energy into a new area of creation. The intensity with which you can begin anew is impressive, and you will be so busy that there won't be time for regrets.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your personal life requires you to be flexible and make speedy adjustments. Because you do this with such grace, you'll move quickly past what you don't want and get into what you do want.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Sometimes you use your head; other times you lead with your heart. Today will best be navigated by doing a little of both. Also, a Capricorn who is in the know will be helpful.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will be involved in an emotionally heightened situation with another person. This relationship will smooth out and lose intensity over time, and you will look back on this period as being very unusual.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you give yourself too much time to complete a task, it will take you too much time. Rein yourself in. Stay on task. Don't give yourself the opportunity to be diverted.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Because you know how much you tend to give of yourself once you make a commitment, you do not enter into agreements lightly. And today you will be even more careful about what you commit to.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Because you are so ambitious and adventurous by nature, you may be bored by the projects that others propose to you today, preferring to hold out for something a bit more challenging.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will feel your emotions deeply, especially when you focus on the one you love so much. Your passionate nature opens you up to getting hurt, but you are willing to take that risk.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are innovative and resourceful. Don't wait until you need those qualities in order to save the ship from sinking. Use them now. You are luckiest when you are inventing.

IF DEC. 5 IS YOU BIRTHDAY: Your appreciation grows for the people who have helped you get where you are. You'll put your team to the test this month, and together you'll reach a shining goal. You will work with someone from a foreign country, and you may go there yourself. February and July are highly romantic. Your bank account swells in May. Aries and Virgo people adore you.
