ARIES (March 21-April 19) Big opportunities hang in the balance today. You'll hit the pillow tonight, pleased with the way your day unfolded.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You force yourself to interact even when you don't want to. Will you remember this five years from now? Possibly. But if you don't, you'll still be a different person because you made the effort today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Your cosmic gift of the day: mental expansion. The two best ways in which you grow yourself today are reading and conversation. CANCER (June 22-July 22) Pondering the small reasons why something has occurred will be counterproductive. Instead, think about the big "why."
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You are not in the mood to play games. So hopefully you have some straight shooters around you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You don't want the pressure that comes with running the whole scene, and yet you can see clear ways in which things could be done better.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Your efforts will be counted, but not by the measure that others are using today. So do what you do without the expectation of getting a gold star.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) If each person is a world, your world is as different from your friend's as Earth is from Jupiter.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Your service to another will be the start of an interesting relationship.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You're up to your old tricks now. Sometimes you like to be noticed, but not today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might secretly think that someone's efforts to impress you are "lame," but you cannot help but be impressed by the fact that they took the time and energy to do so.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) After much consideration, you'll finally make a trade. If it feels a bit inequitable now, just know that had you waited any longer, it would only become more so.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 27) You work hard, but you have an irresistible lightness in your approach to play. Your freewheeling style will attract a fun crowd. Your living space will improve. Take on projects now, and they'll be completed by August. June features a vote or a judgment in your favor. You will help and be helped by family in September. Cancer and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 2, 37, 29 and 15.
