Aries (March 21-April 19)

Cupid is an impish child who thinks it's funny to play "chemistry set" with your heart. Keep in mind that chemistry and infatuation are approximately the same thing and neither has much to do with true love.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Anyone can turn something simple into a complex activity. But your strength is taking something complicated and making it simple -- and that's why you'll be sought out, rewarded and admired.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

All behavior that is learned can be unlearned. You'll be trying your best to do just that. Instead of beating your head against the wall, take a break and try again tomorrow when your incentive will be greater.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

With Mercury newly visiting your sign, you are more willing to express every feeling that flickers across your heart -- and you find the words to do so, too! You won't feel very productive today, but try to do some organizing tonight.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You put your complete self into a task, expecting fast results that don't come. Now that you know this, you can enjoy your activities more fully. The luckiest endeavor is to find a place of compassion between humans.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Emotional security is a valid need. You want answers to your relationship quandaries -- answers that are not easily given, but it doesn't hurt to start the conversation. If single and looking, the best opening line is "Hello."

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You'll meet someone who represents the worst traits of a parent -- and, of course, fall immediately under this person's spell. There's a difference between trusting your heart and being the victim of your own whim. Strike a balance.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

You may not think you are flirting, but your attitude does the flirting for you! Therefore, be aware of loved ones who are feeling sensitive, raw and underconfident. Give special care where it is needed.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

It's the hardheaded, practical ideas that work brilliantly -- and you'll have dozens of these to choose from if you surround yourself with earth signs (Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo). Affection is lavished on you tonight.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Just as proper nutrition is key to keeping your body in condition, frequent chatting sessions with friends can do the same for your mind. Bounce your latest and greatest ideas off your pals for instant positive feedback.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Though you have blossomed into a responsible adult, some people you know never did. Don't let them guilt you into doing things that you find juvenile. Singles: An admirer sends subtle signals.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Being apathetic is generally not considered positive, but when loved ones bring their personal drama into your realm, apathy is the way to go. Avoid acknowledging conflict, or you will get drawn into the madness.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY JUNE 12: The fruits of your labor are big and juicy this year! Work is so much more than a means to an end -- but your bank balance still matters. By this time next month, you'll have that padding you need to take a leap of faith. Your graceful acceptance of what everyone has to give makes you lucky in love. Singles hit it off with Libra or Scorpio loves.
