ARIES (March 21-April 19): Count your blessings. Although you may not be where you envisioned yourself at this point in your life, you have much to be thankful for. Remember those who have been there for you through the years.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It doesn't always have to be a party. Sometimes you can find the greatest satisfaction by going off on your own and doing your own thing. Money will not burn a hole in your pocket, so it is easy to save.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Recharge your batteries. The gang is barbequed out from last weekend's holiday bashes and some quiet, personal time may be just what the doctor ordered to keep body and soul together. Take it easy.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don't forget the little people. Stars don't make it to the top without a good supporting cast. Take some time out to let your closest friends know just how much you appreciate them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your trust is well placed. If you take a chance that a friend will come through for you, you will be amply rewarded. Dress to impress, as you may well encounter some romantic possibilities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Why put off until tomorrow what you can accomplish today? Get on top of that household project you've been neglecting for the past several weeks. A day off doesn't mean you should be completely idle.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): See how the other half lives. Indulge yourself with the finer things in life. A little extra expenditure of cash will be well worth the experience. Gain some good karma by being generous to those less fortunate.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Signals are crossed in romantic endeavors. You and your significant other may seem at odds about the direction of your current relationship. A little time apart could be more beneficial than forced time together.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You don't always have to do the driving. Let someone else be in charge for a while if it makes them happy. The day will run smoothly if the needs of the whole group are taken into consideration.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Reward those who have helped you along the way. Let generosity flow to both your closest friends and those who are in need. You've had a good run lately and the act of giving will make you feel even better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Business and pleasure don't mix. Getting too familiar with a client could be bad for your reputation. Maintain a professional manner in all dealings and save your fun for times after you punch out.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): When faced with too many appealing choices, the best course of action is to wait. Take time to gather information to make sure that your decision is the most beneficial to all involved. There is no hurry.
IF JUNE 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Think about getting physically fit in the next several weeks. It will be easily than usual to adhere to a diet or exercise program, so you can make some improvements. In August you will need to watch your p's and q's and remain within the boundaries of convention. If you honor your commitments and exert self-control, you will be rewarded with valuable experience. Wait until September, when you can relax, to take a vacation or a break from your labors. Friends or club activities could block your benefits by distracting you in November. For the best outcomes, wait until December to make key business or financial decisions.
