ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take disruptions or surprises in your stride. It might be tempting to make an abrupt change, but it's better to simply settle back and wait out minor ripples in the flow of the day.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This isn't a good time to test the waters. You may be anxious to turn a hobby into an income producer or invite friends to participate in a business venture. Sit tight for the moment.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Focus on fabulous frolics. People will appreciate an escape from business, work and other serious matters. Social activities might put you in a favorable spotlight for a few hours.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Wish upon a star. Believing in things you can't see or touch see could be called faith or superstition. No matter which choice people make, others will be inspired by you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Let your leadership abilities shine and rewards may arrive in the form of respect from a group of peers. This is a good time to participate in group activities or join a business organization.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Let the skeptic within be your guide. Your instincts are right on the mark when dealing with close personal relationships, but you aren't likely to make a killing in financial investments.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The best way to fatten your piggy bank is by adding pennies to your savings account. A brief flurry of calculated risk-taking might be tempting, but you're better off ignoring the urge.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You don't need to wear a fireman's hat to put out fires. Small problems could create friction within a key business relationship, but your thoughtful intervention solves them.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You might know how to connect the dots where money is concerned, but still not generate a profit. Hold off on entering into new business contracts or investments.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Cultural soldiers carry weapons. If an old-school outlook collides with progressive politics, you could experience a conflict of conscience. Try to strike a compromise.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can't successfully mix selfish self-interest with altruistic motives. Don't make a donation in the hope of a tax deduction or give a hitchhiker a ride in order to get directions.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Good guidance is available under these stars, so listen to suggestions, ask for advice, or seek wise counsel. Share your sincere opinions and beliefs with a loved one.

IF AUGUST 15 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: A romantic weekend or a vacation could be highly enjoyable during the next 6-8 weeks. You have everything under control and your business is at its best, so you should fly safely through the fall. Between November and the end of January, don't take vacations or launch new initiatives and be a stickler about taking care of key responsibilities. In December, concentrate on business rather than pleasure, as a new romance might fizzle out. Be alert for unexpected opportunities or help from powerful places in April. Whatever you begin or plan will bear fruit and improve your life.
