Aries (March 21-April 19)

The stars help you forge loving connections. Couples are tempted to put off togetherness while they "get things done." But bonds are cemented when you get them done together. A Virgo helps you tackle what you've been putting off.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Inside of you, a 3-year-old child and a teenager with different desires are battling it out. This could cause ambivalence and inaction. Find a way to integrate these conflicted internal forces, and you'll be productive.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

You're restless, but you'll have to cross a few items off your list before you can get on with something new. It won't take you long to finish that project that's been loping along. Don't try to make it perfect -- just make it happen.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Loved ones try to give you props, if you're in the mood to hear them. Be satisfied with what you've been able to accomplish. If you can't appreciate it, it will be hard to motivate yourself in the future.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

It's easy to get ahead of yourself now, but try to take things one moment at a time. Relax and trust. There are mountains in the distance. You'll climb those when you get to them.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Give your instincts a workout. Don't wait until you're at a loss to let your intuition point you in the right direction. You're a huge flirt tonight and so adept at manipulating social situations that you may do so for the fun of it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

When purchasing goods over the telephone, why do businesses insist on giving you a confirmation number? You've never once needed one. There's luck when you take the time to wonder why about all the big and little things.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

There's a glorious wistfulness in your soul. You could be most productive by spending the day spinning your radio dial, watching clouds and dancing to your own internal melody.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

It takes a lot of energy to salvage something that hasn't worked from the beginning. Instead of throwing good after bad, it may be easier to start completely anew. An Aries can help you with this endeavor.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

One financial gesture speaks volumes. Your attitude about money has changed so drastically that you no longer bother to take offense to the ridiculous way that some people spend theirs.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You need hours to do absolutely nothing. Play around with ways to stretch your time. Honesty factors in. The more you keep it "real," the less time you spend doing things you don't want to be doing.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Being around loved ones reinforces the idea that there is nothing more important than family. A next of kin proposes a financial arrangement. The better the opportunity, the more it requires your thought and planning.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY Sept. 11: A person could live without passion, but who would want to? Certainly not you, which is why this is your year to fill with wild excursions, excitement and reasons to stretch. Singles pursue a new relationship. Couples heal an ailing part of their relationship. December's business perks up finances. Scorpio and Leo fulfill a fantasy. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 42, 11, 28 and 51.
