Aries (March 21-April 19)

It's a relationship of mutual attraction that you're after, so that's what you get. You're able to love with open arms and open palms, refusing to clutch and clamor in order to make someone stay.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The planets favor going where the crowd goes -- both to feel the collective energy and to form your own opinion. You're so adept at being in the group but not of the group.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

Your innocence keeps you wanting the best out of people and getting the most, too -- more than anyone could get if they really knew what to expect. You're truly inspiring to young people, who will be watching you closely.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Casual visits and unexpected calls are featured. Feeling good helps you forget about money woes, and because you neglect them, they go away. Tonight, the young will teach the old.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

It's okay if you seem to have missed a break or passed up a chance for something big. You're still learning. There's nothing to regret. Just ask yourself what you can do to be more deserving of the next opportunity.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You spend the morning reading minds. You know the secret: It's easier to do than most people think it is. Attitude says it all. Don't wait for confirmation. Act on what you know.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Maybe you've got a thing for someone who you think others wouldn't approve of. There's a good reason you feel the way you do. Be a rebel -- love whoever you want to love.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Life is too precious to spend even an hour being bored. However, things around you could get lethargic if you don't stay on top of it. Liven up everything about yourself (your smile, your conversation, etc.), and others follow suit.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The people you hang out with should be supportive of your dreams and goals. If they are not, now is the time to jump into a different circle. This starts by making one new friend.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The better you understand your nature, the more you can mold your behavior. Today, you may finally understand why you do something. Cherish the one who will tell you things straight.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Deadlines are impossible to meet if there's no incentive. You need a reward that makes you feel fabulous. Examine your to-do list. Is there anything fun on there? If so, do that first.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

If you're feeling off-purpose, simply get back on by doing something, anything, from start to finish. Wash the dishes, mow the lawn, climb a mountain or dig a ditch.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY AUG. 21: This year, you step into strange territory, and the clutter of menial, unimportant tasks is wiped clean by your determination to succeed there. One special person will be both a leader and a follower through the fall. Financial blessings in December are opportunities to beautify your environment. Aries and Libra individuals bring passion to your life.
