ARIES (March 21-April 19) Manual labor, especially having to do with cleaning up your environment, is the fastest way to feeling better.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The creativity is flowing for you, and you'll come up with exciting ideas.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21) The compromises you've been making are starting to add up to a vague dissatisfaction.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) Charm becomes unnecessary when you can deliver the real deal.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) It's always easier to talk about what other people should do than it is to run your own ship.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You'll have options about where to spend your money.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It's important to feel a sense of progress, especially when you're bummed out.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) When people are ready to learn, the learning happens easily and quickly.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Make some goals just for the fun of it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Children desire to be very grown up, so in a sense, being a grown-up is a childish desire with which adults needn't be overly concerned.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You can't please everyone, so the best thing to do is aim to please yourself.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Some tasks are like boomerangs, always giving you more to do and never finished until you decide you're not going to play that game anymore.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 28) There is no finer joy than knowing that the one you care about loves you, too. This will be proved to you time and again this year. In May, acquiring wealth allows you to fully express yourself, especially by hiring and helping people, as well as by seeing your visions realized. The summer is romantic. It sweeps you into your emotions and helps you lose the tendency to overthink. Invest in August. October brings a payout of sorts. Leo and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 22, 14, 17 and 5.
