ARIES (March 21-April 19): The way you live your life is your message to the world. Aim your energies in the right direction in the week to come and strive to be fair. You can't make business and career your only objective.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Travel down your own evolutionary road. You may feel that you are finally making progress and improvements in your life. In the week ahead, be grateful for blessings that change you for the better.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Info comes in on broadband, but sometimes your brain is merely on dialup. You might not be able to keep up with the rapid flow of information and knowledge that comes your way in the week ahead.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): In regard to matters of love and affection, you might find it necessary to take a trip to a virtual lost-and-found department. Your loyalty could be tested in the week to come, but true love will be returned.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Practice your beliefs until they become a certainty. Business might produce a pressing concern -- but in the week to come, you must overcome any sense of social hierarchy or arrogance by sticking to principles.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Connect to people through laughter. While riding the roller coaster of life this week, it is impossible to maintain distance from or be concerned with financial problems when you're rolling on the floor with laughter.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't let business interfere with your rest and relaxation. Spend some time in meditation during the week to come and consider the big picture and how the world at large affects your long-term goals.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It isn't possible to lead a horse to water and make it drink. But if the horse is thirsty, it will be happy to oblige. In the week to come, don't force your views or products on others; try to fill a need.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): If you can't organize your time and exert self-discipline, then it is likely that someone else will come in to take over the job. In the week ahead, let others set a good example without governing you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Remain stoic in the face of perceived threats and opposition. There may be something slightly belligerent in the way you approach others in the week ahead that puts them off. Exert gentleness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't derail the gravy train. Speak out against tyranny, but don't spend too much time and energy on a moot point when you must deal with co-workers or business contacts in the week to come.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A famous quotation might be pertinent to your week ahead: "There are many things of which a wise man might wish to be ignorant." Sometimes it is what you don't know that keeps you out of hot water.
IF SEPTEMBER 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Once your head is down out of the clouds, you can make sound decisions. In the year ahead, you are willing to work hard to realize concrete progress. Take action in the next three to four weeks to get in optimum physical shape or put key plans into motion. Ambitions may be tweaked, but you can be hoodwinked or distracted in November, just when you must be most cautious about taking on additional responsibilities. Look for assistance in achieving material success in March or early April. You can spin some virtual straw into gold by accepting whatever is offered at that time and making intelligent plans for the future.
