Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Don't pass up surprise invitations or short trips, as there could be a Prince Charming (or Princess) waiting just around the corner. If you have a romantic getaway with a loved one on your schedule, all your dreams are likely to come true.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Even if you are shouldering heavy responsibilities, remember to take a break and enjoy harmonious times with someone special. If you are thinking about a loved one, that phone is likely to ring.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The surge of enthusiasm you experience now could set you off in a delightful new direction. Conversations with friends could be enlightening. If you have been hesitant about starting something new, get the show on the road.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Make connections that help you succeed, and do not forget to make follow-up phone calls. There is a chance for money to flow into your bank account over the next day or two. Just be at the right place at the right time.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Partnership matters loom large now, and agreements that are forged in the next day or two should prove profitable. You have a spark that attracts new friends and lucky breaks.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Success and happiness come to those who bravely accept changes, and embrace advanced techniques. New acquaintances could open doors for you, or give you personal feedback so you can improve your life.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The lingering effects of a romantically charged weekend should keep you in a pleasant frame of mind and guarantee congenial companionship. It is a perfect day for short trips, sports, exercise, or just putting energy into plans for the future.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Lay out schemes to secure your dreams. You could still be in the mood for pampering and special treats, but the atmosphere is charged for forging ahead and exploring new vistas.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Make technology work for you today. It is prime time to plug in that new computer, install new software, or deal with intricate mental work. Special friendships can be forged, especially if you get out in the public eye where your talents are better appreciated.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The words and views of others could widen your perspective. The perfume of love remains, and heightens your amorous senses, but taking care of necessities around the home might be wise.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Take your partner out to a special entertainment or a jog in the park. A little exercise to stretch mental or physical muscles will increase your sense of well being. Put innovative plans in motion.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Brilliant ideas, innovative solutions and a willingness to make positive changes can make you the hero in the eyes of someone special. Tackle that computer problem or bring new friends further into your intimate circle.
