TAURUS (April 20-May 20): All's fair in love and you can probably ignore war today. Chance encounters might bring luck. Agreements will be marked by evenhandedness. Seek common ground with others today and romance tonight.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight. The sunshine of kindness and joy prevails this evening, so gather at the local watering hole with friends or just relish being spoiled.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): The most important thing is being kind and generous to others. You shine in public and wherever you are called upon to interact with others. Indulge your sweet tooth or relax in a hot tub tonight.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You might imagine that a relationship can turn into friendship with benefits. Someone might be flattered by your attention, even if that won't work out. Don't let your fantasy world outweigh common sense.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Insecurity might be replaced by a desire for genuine harmony. Frank and honest discussions put commitments and plans back on the right track. Some frivolous pampering will bring a smile to a lover's face.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The Titanic would not have sunk if you had been at the helm. Send out an SOS and you'll be thrown a lifesaver. Cupid's arrows might hit their mark tonight, too, so make up with a loved one or seek a new romance.

IF OCTOBER 22 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Work on attaining your most important hopes and dreams in the year ahead. The next two weeks are an excellent time to set up a game plan because it is easy for you to exercise good judgment and enjoy enhanced vision of the future. Relationships that are firmly rooted blossom between now and the first of the year. Avoid making important commitments or adding extra responsibilities to your schedule in January or July when you could be saddled with something tiresome or your ambitions could outweigh common sense. Opportunities for advancement may appear in March and brighten your future for a long time to come.
