ARIES (March 21-April 19): Reward loyalty. In these changing times, someone who remains steadfast and true in the face of modern day temptations is well worth cultivating. Fickle friends might pursue an impossible dream.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Allay suspicions and avoid misunderstandings by treating everyone with extra consideration. Those in close connection may be displeased by something you do but will make an effort to overlook it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you want to use your head effectively, feed it a healthy diet of accurate information. Friends may give you constructive criticism or offer feedback so you can tweak a project properly.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have the whole world in your hands. You can just take the necessary steps, or take the extra step that makes a world of difference. Listen to that inner voice urging you to do the right thing.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The law of supply and demand doesn't mean that other people will supply it if you demand it. Exercise restraint within group situations so you're not seen as difficult. The Full Moon brings out sensitivities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do what you think is right. Become one with the flow of events and let them act as a guiding light so only the best things happen. It may be a good day to trust that the universe and loved ones know best.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Turn confusion and consternation into compromise. A minor conflict can make you aware of which buttons to push in order to make peace with a romantic partner.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Even your shadow abandons you in the dark. Focus on being generous, tolerant and kind; be a light that brightens every corner. Avoid complaining or gossiping, as it might come back to haunt you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you see the ball is in the air, be prepared to catch. Your instinct to act on financial opportunities will bring benefits. Remain alert for advice or guidance that may help you score a home run.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Unselfishness counts. You pick a flower to enjoy it, but it quickly fades. If you let the flower continue to grow in the garden, every passerby can enjoy it and when it fades it reseeds itself to grow again.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Do a high five when you meet someone new. Relegate business matters to the back burner when new social connections are formed. Don't mix business with pleasure or attempt to fulfill a financial fantasy.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If a relationship doesn't make you a better person, then it's the wrong match-up. Today's Full Moon could illuminate more than the nighttime landscape, as you become aware of your place in a relationship.
IF JULY 22 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your ambitions know no bounds in the year ahead. Because you're willing to burn the midnight oil, you can build a strong foundation for your career. Your passion to succeed could lead you to join an organization or group of like-minded people who can help you attain your dreams during the next several weeks. An interest in physical fitness, especially between now and the end of August, can help you handle a busy schedule more efficiently. By the end of the year, having top-notch credentials could become of primary importance. Romance could blossom during December.
