Aries (March 21-April 19): Take things at face value today. Sometimes applying too much critical thought and analysis to your endeavors just ruins the fun.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You will be prone to going off on fascinating tangents, and everyone will be glad to have someone like you around to spice things up.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): It will feel like an urgent necessity to be very generous, particularly with someone who has very little. Giving of yourself will be more satisfying than giving to yourself.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): You know who you are. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks about you. Whether or not they are in favor of your choices will have no impact on your stance.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Small changes throw off your plans. You'd prefer the changes were big — if things aren't going to go the way you want, you'd rather be very surprised instead of mildly annoyed.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): An idea clicks for the first time. You will realize just how much you have to gain by accomplishing a goal.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): The daily routine flows without a hitch. This happens because you are prepared for much and you can quickly improvise.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Your popularity is on the rise, in part because you are feeling friendly and because you take an uncomplicated approach to relationships.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It's important that you take your time with difficult projects. Also, read all documents thoroughly.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You want to create something of great beauty, but you believe it's difficult given your financial constraints. Unconventional solutions abound.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Something you know is in high demand. You will do well teaching others and could succeed in publishing, consulting or speaking publicly.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You can see that someone needs help. You'll offer your kind consideration, and it will take a while for the other person to respond.
Today's birthday (Feb. 13): Your self-esteem grows this year. You come across as confident, with nothing to prove. April shows you in a new position. Wedding bells ring in June. Scorpio and Aries people offer both financial and emotional support. Your lucky numbers are 43, 1, 19, 24 and 17.
