ARIES (March 21-April 19): Mingle if you're single. Although this isn't a good time to make a commitment or promise, it could be a perfect time to make the first move or approach someone who has built a fire in your heart.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): When others falter and fall behind, you can take the lead. Your amiable nature gets a kick in the pants this weekend so others may sit up and take notice when you walk by. Flirtations are entirely possible.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Inspiration is a magic wheel that spins stray ideas into gold. Creative juices are flowing over the next several days, but you might find that the world just isn't ready to give you the recognition you deserve.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Double your pleasure. Remember that two heads are better than one and that four hands make light work. You and a special someone might have the same dream in mind and should hook up as a team.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Fearlessness in the face of adversity can see you through trying times. You are still under pressure to perform at top speed, but everything flows more smoothly when there is a congenial other by your side.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Pick and choose so you aren't confused. For every piece of advice and success story there is another one pointing in the opposite direction. The focus may shift and center on your love life or hobbies.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your skills are in demand if imagination and a warm personality are required. Even if the world is a hostile place full of backbiting adversaries, you will find an agreeable someone - and some cozy spaces to share.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Some people imagine the worst. Someone may take offense at the most innocent remarks. Your special someone, however, may be in an amorous mood and willing to massage away the day's tensions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You could get a dose of your own medicine if you play spin doctor and people find your justifications and excuses unbelievable. Truthfulness is the virtue that you should practice.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Enriching experiences brighten your weekend. Don't pass up opportunities to meet new people or explore broad horizons. What falls in your lap due to the kind influence of others might bring bliss.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can be a sensitive and thoughtful companion. Be nimble on your feet and quick-witted to take advantage of opportunities. Warmth and kindness are the best tactics to use when faced with an impasse.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Win by default. A competitive atmosphere can be used to your advantage as you have the sensitivity to sidestep obvious pitfalls. Make the most of your ability to charm others and grease the right wheels.
IF DECEMBER 3 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Drive and determination will take you far. You can glide effortlessly on the crest of high-rolling ambitions in February when your innate street smarts will help you make shrewd financial or business moves. With gracious Jupiter assisting your sign in March, opportunities to get ahead can drop in your lap and your most heartfelt prayers can be answered. That is an excellent time for key decision-making or to launch your projects. Your cosmic sailboat could encounter rough waters in July and August making it a time to avoid making new romantic or business commitments.
