Aries (March 21-April 19)

Do you want overflowing joy? Provide a service that others truly need. Educational, financial and cultural purposes are your forte. With regard to heart matters, you'd rather be the pursuer but are pursued today instead.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The road to love has its bumps and ditches, but you hold on tight. While traveling the path, you suddenly feel you are the path. This is the total commitment needed to make a relationship work.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Model exactly what you'd like to receive from others. You will realize in the process how easy or hard it is to deliver to your specifications. Money is just money, so put financial worries in proper perspective.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Situations arise to help you further develop your already impressive powers of empathy. Whether applied to your love life or your professional life, your increased compassion will make you rich.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Someone "takes you to school" today, and you are happy to go. These life lessons on the subject of loving and being loved are more valuable than gold. You have an unlimited number of second chances available.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You may go back and forth, wondering if a pursuit is viable or a total waste of your time. The answer is: both. Use the endeavor as an exercise in keeping a positive attitude.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

No one shines without help. It's the ideal time to recruit your team. Look for the true hearted and also for people who have something to contribute to your aesthetic sensibility.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

You're cultivating a style. It's the little things that make you feel special -- famous even -- no, legendary. And why shouldn't you stand out as a VIP? You certainly behave like one.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

While others may have trouble readjusting once life has been disrupted by travel, you can't stand to have your life disrupted by routine. When it comes to adventure, you show the rest of the world how it's done.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Getting your specifications precisely met doesn't seem as important. You see the benefit of being easy to please -- you get to spend most of your time being pleased. Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

What feels like pressure at first is actually an opportunity to excel. The right person will inspire you to put your fears aside and choose love. Likely candidates are Sagittarius and Pisces.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Getting out into the world helps you appreciate your own home. While making your rounds, you easily capture someone's heart. To this person, you seem like a dream but you prove yourself to be real.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY July 24: You pause often this year to receive the beauty and bounty of life. You must say "no" several times this month and next because you are so passionate about what you are saying "yes" to. Listen and learn to please a loved one, and as a result, you'll feel incredibly supported through the exciting challenges of the fall. Love is dreamy with Aries or Taurus. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 15, 13, 19 and 32.
