ARIES (March 21-April 19): A budding romance can blossom into the real deal. Someone you think of merely as a friend might have more than friendship in mind. Pursue romantic fancies without breaking off an existing relationship.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Love can earn five gold stars in your appointment book. You might be able to make helpful connections at community functions or during happy hour. Business and pleasure could mix tonight.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Light a fire under your most important goals. Discuss your wishes and dreams for the future with a close companion and you can receive helpful advice and guidance as well as a solid boost in your enthusiasm.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Roll the dice. Buy the very best that money can buy without overextending the budget or following the crowd. Romantic liaisons might lead to better things this weekend, so dust off your dancing shoes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may be restless about routines. A pleasant change of pace is possible. Frequent interruptions or long-distance phone calls may surprise you at work. A charming contact at work might tickle your fancy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Hem your intimate relationships with seamless sympathy so they don't come unraveled. Even when you are uncertain or suspicious, it is always best to give your loved ones the benefit of the doubt.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Happiness is more than a warm puppy. Social activities bring joyful memories to the surface. You might be able to wave a flag of commitment over a love affair or enjoy awakened dedication to a career objective.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Rub a sterling reputation like a genie's lamp. Be known as someone who follows through on promises and gets the job done. You could get what you want if you ask for a favor from an admirer.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Tease them with taste and distinction. You needn't follow the call of the wild with a fashion craze. Your instincts about what constitutes a good buy with lasting values are right on target.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Learning something new could revive a blast from the past. You could be reminded of past skills and forgotten techniques, or get back in touch with an old buddy who has some sound solutions.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Read between the lines. Honest communication can strengthen affectionate ties and boost the bonds of affection. Don't give the wrong impression by pretending to be more independent than you really are.
IF APRIL 29 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your obsession with business success will pay off this year. Your hard work and persistence has the potential to earn ample rewards, so fearlessly apply yourself to anything that challenges you to excellence. In June, your street smarts and common sense will help you make sound evaluations about investments or financial matters. Display good judgment, launch your most important initiatives and make sound decisions in July and September when Lady Luck is on your side and you'll pave the way for future prosperity and abundance.
