Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your compassion radiates, and you attract all kinds of people who need your help. Hopefully they understand that the kind of help you intend to give is to teach others how to fight their own battles.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Matching your pace to what is going on around you will be your key to success. Make sure you are not walking ahead or behind your partner. Walk beside your partner and you both will feel loved.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

So many people expect wonders from a relationship when the most wonderful thing of all might be just having a relationship in the first place. You're grateful now for whatever your (quirky, cranky, crazy) loved ones want to give.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Hold on tight! The twists and turns in your personal life put you on a virtual roller coaster. You'll get the best information from someone who promised they would keep it a secret.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

When you feel like you're out on a limb by yourself, inch your way back to the tree trunk. Return to your roots. You're just the one who could harness the collective genius of your loved ones.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

There's so much to do, and you're successful at getting it done for one reason: Though you're not sure if it's work or play, you know it's fun. The chance to transcend social boundaries is featured tonight.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

You'll find your way through a sort of maze. You're a bit of a detective and more cleverly observant than anyone around. Try not to share information that should be revealed by someone else, though.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

You're the problem solver of your group. Difficult, complex behavior might be rewarded by difficult, complex people. However, winning individuals will appreciate a simple and effective solution.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Others will be available when you need them most. Neighbors and relatives have something to share. Anything that artificially alters your mood is unsafe now. Unwind with a massage, yoga or the hot tub.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

What you're doing may be unpopular now, but keep believing and moving in the direction of that belief. Your determination will get you there even if you're unqualified, underfunded or uninvited.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your dreams are big, but that doesn't mean you have to overcome crazy odds. Don't go looking for 10-foot-high obstacles to jump over. Occupy yourself with stepping over the short roadblocks instead.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Relationships are cyclical. You are coming into a cycle that features new and perhaps very surprising information. As Warren Buffett once said, "It's only when the tide goes out that you learn who's been swimming naked."

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY JULY 17:You honor your gifts this year by developing them to the highest level. The right teachers appear now through September if you prove that you are a worthy student. Your powers of attraction are in full swing in October. Make it known what kind of company you'd ideally like to keep. You really hit it off with Capricorn and Leo people.
