ARIES (March 21-April 19): The thirst for power cannot be slaked. Abandon your passion for recognition without making drastic changes and concentrate on love, affection and romance if you want your fantasies fulfilled.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Business efforts go unrewarded. If you try to force financial issues that involve a business partner, you will end up frustrated. Pretend, instead, that you are a slave to love and let your wandering eye roam.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Dig deep. Investigating the secrets of life may hold your attention. A scientific breakthrough can provoke thoughtfulness. But a romantic encounter is more likely to lead to a pleasurable weekend.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your antenna is directed at local gossip. Because you like to be in the know, you are likely to investigate details that are better off left sealed with a stamp of confidentiality.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Tend to your garden of romantic fantasy. Anything worthwhile requires care and attention or it becomes neglected. If you wish to be loved, then find ways to be more lovable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Stick to whatever you start. You might be slightly dismayed to learn that Rome wasn't built in a day or that a project you hoped to complete takes additional time and will not provide immediate gratification.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Overnight success takes years to achieve. Don't be discouraged if you can't win immediately. Remind yourself that those who succeed usually put a lot of effort and determination into getting there.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Appreciation arrives at its own pace. Your talents shine just as brightly without grabbing someone by the ear and forcing them to notice. True genius is recognized at the right time and in the right place.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): To move a mountain, you start by carrying small stones. You may have set yourself a large task that seems overwhelming. The goals you have set are attainable if you begin with the small things.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Avoid frustration. You may be more determined than ever to succeed and anxious to excel at your career or business. Remember, you are happiest doing what you do well and whatever runs smoothly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may be wiser and wittier than you think. You are successful at tasks that require quick thinking. Concentrate on being a busy little bee and let business intuition lead you to the honeycomb.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You may be on a fervent mission to ferret out the truth. You leave no stone unturned in fact finding operations. Where money is concerned, you resent being bullied and take offense when forced to contribute.
IF SEPTEMBER 30 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: In the month ahead, you will find that projects and initiatives put into motion will tend to remain in motion and you can bank on your success being repeated unless you give in to ruthless ambition in November and December. You may experience startling insights in March, April and May when you are open to new ideas. Circumstances could force you to make changes or relationships could become unpredictable. Enjoy some well-deserved rewards in July when it is a great time to take a vacation or launch a new business project while optimism, farsightedness, and opportunity link hands.
