(March 21 to April 19)
No matter how sympathetic you feel toward others, be careful today. You might be tempted to give away the farm. Remember: True generosity is giving what is needed.
(April 20 to May 20)
This is a lovely day for important discussions with partners and close friends because people feel mutually sympathetic to each other. That's why it will be easy to reach an agreement.
(May 21 to June 20)
Co-workers and people connected with your job will be surprisingly supportive today. Accept this, and offer your own support to them in return. What goes around comes around.
(June 21 to July 22)
Romance is very sweet and affectionate today. Your idealism is aroused, which means you might put someone up on a pedestal. (It's probably temporary, but it's kinda fun.)
(July 23 to Aug. 22)
Discussions with female relatives will be gentle and affectionate today. Someone might need you to listen. It's a small thing, yet so important, isn't it?
(Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Because your imagination is heightened today, this is a great day for those of you who are working in creative fields. Nevertheless, imagination is important in many areas of life.
(Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
Be careful about major expenditures today, because you might be tempted by luxury and elegance. Why not give things a sober second thought?
(Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Today you feel kindhearted to everyone you meet. They, in turn, will be friendly to you because generally, the attitude of one person triggers the same in another.
(Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
There is a difference between self-sacrifice and martyrdom. Don't be a doormat for others if you're concerned about their misfortunes. Stay strong so that you can help them.
(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
Your connection with a female authority figure will help you today. This person feels sympathetic to your needs and could promote something that benefits you financially in the future.
(Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
People view you as being sympathetic and helpful today. This is never a bad thing because kindness is the most important quality. In fact, it's a wonderful thing to cultivate.
(Feb. 19 to March 20)
Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, visit beautiful places. Go to parks, art galleries, gorgeous architectural buildings and museums.
YOU BORN TODAY You are dramatic, powerful and romantic. Your imagination and sense of theatricality create a world in which you fiercely protect your loved ones. No matter what your job, you fantasize about achieving bold exploits. Personally, you are private and very sensitive. In the year ahead, something you've been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new.
