Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Seek advice and guidance, or confide in someone close to you. Simply "be there" for someone special who needs reassurance. You would be wise to wait where financial transactions are concerned.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Because you are in a cheerful mood today, you are willing to compromise, which makes the cogs run more smoothly at work. Deep insights into the motivations of others can help boost prosperity.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have a growing yen for the exotic and yearn for a break in routines. You could get your wish, as the only constant will be change for the next day or so.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Wait until the second half of the day to ask for advice and you will be assured of an honest appraisal. Contact professionals, such as your accountant or dentist. Make a pledge about one of your goals and you will be able to achieve it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Partners can be demanding and exacting. You may need to click your heels and salute for several days. It is a basic human trait to resent being ordered around; stifle the urge to rebel, and perform necessary tasks without complaint.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Growing dissatisfaction with the status quo can create a rebellious atmosphere. To break the monotony, consider changing horses in midstream. Just make sure to be careful.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Think about long-term goals and discuss the game plan with your closest companion. That way the two of you can work in tandem to achieve your dreams. You can count on hearing the truth today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will be busy for the next few days and may be tempted to burn the midnight oil where career matters are concerned. If you wish to put yourself in shape for the summer, you can muster the energy to start an exercise program.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Get good advice before spending money, as you may be tempted to act on impulse. Friendships might realign under these stars. It is possible that you'll see your goals in an entirely different light by the end of the week. Change is good.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Expect honesty and fairness from others. Close companions will tell you the truth, so ask for their opinions. It is a fine time to talk over plans for the future, as you will be able to follow through on strategies put in motion now.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

A heavy workload could have you hurrying and scurrying for the next day or two. Take a few minutes to assess what needs to be done, and write out a schedule for the best success. Put things in order so you can conserve time.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

It is in your best interest to gather information about financial matters, but wait until the atmosphere has calmed down before pursuing new enterprises. Sweeping changes could alter the career area.

IF MAY 23 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You are likely to be filled with dynamic energy and follow a strict work ethic this week. You can be successful in anything you attempt by applying a little elbow grease. As someone who has recently broken away from things that restricted your freedom, you now find that you have to work hard to maintain the momentum. Fearlessness is your best trait.
