Aries (March 21-April 19)

Oh, the scenes that play out in your "theater of the mind." For now, that's the best place for drama, as you're in an exaggerated state. Think it through before you bring issues into the real world.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

To stay or to go -- the age-old question plagues you. As the song goes, if you stay there will be trouble, if you go it will be double. In that case, it seems the choice is clear. Scram!

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Something has occurred to solve a longstanding problem. Amazing coincidences are featured, or you could lose something only to find it again later under a most bizarre condition.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Use your intuition when it's strongest. Your psychic sense shifts like your five senses do. Just as your eyesight may be better in the morning light, your intuition may be more keen while you're in the shower or while you're driving.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Every day is a new opportunity to let joy radiate through your heart. Right now that means lifting a prejudice or a preconceived notion that is keeping you from accepting someone who is around you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Being caught in between two desires is a precarious place to be. Luckily, you do not love each with equal force. Take time to yourself to figure out how you really feel and what outcome you want the most.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Not only do you see the best in a situation, but you are an agent of transformation and can make the most ordinary and unlikely people and places blossom into something truly gorgeous.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Your methods don't totally make sense. But since the outcome is favorable, people who don't understand you will nonetheless leave you to your own devices. You love the freedom.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If you want to, you can create a sensational reason to call someone from the distant past -- but you don't really need a reason at all. People are thrilled to hear from you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The light inside you is of high wattage, so expect some attention. Sure, you don't look like you used to, but being comfortable with who you are now will make you the most attractive you have ever been in your whole life!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Family matters come first -- you handle them beautifully. Your backward way of solving problems is very effective and mighty entertaining to those around you. Celebrate your oddness.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

When you apply yourself, you can bring the whole room up with your energy. Work your magic wherever you go. The everyday locations deserve your best just as much as the special places.
