ARIES (March 21-April 19). You'll go faster and you'll finish stronger if you allow things to be stupendously imperfect, at least for now. You can always go back later and clean it up.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There is no room for doubt, no reason to change things up, no need to quickly come up with something new. Hold your head up high, and deliver.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). No one is going to charge your battery; you have to do it yourself. One thing, though: Avoid the charging station that worked last time. Diversify. Spread out. Find one in another part of town.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Partnerships will need to be hashed out verbally. Stay on track, especially if you have a less-than-pleasant history with someone. Don't let the issue switch to one of personal rivalry.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). One study suggests a typical college student will pull two all-nighters per school year, resulting in better academic performance for a meager fraction of students. For you, early to bed will bring no regrets.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You developed this whole style of coping that worked so well you're still using a lot of it today. Is this still necessary, or does it unreasonably limit you?

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sometimes you give compliments because you're nice. Today, you're a little more calculating, and your compliments are aimed at lowering others' defenses.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you have to talk about your problem, do it in personal terms, describing how it affects your life and expressing all of the feelings that come up around it. There's strength in honest vulnerability.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As you get older you care less and less about being liked. However, there's nothing to gain from behaving in an unlikeable fashion. Today, the more they like you, the better your position will be.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There's a tall order with your name on it. With the right attitude you'll finish the job before Friday. Avoid negative thinkers, and rewire your own thought processes. Relentless optimism is called for.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you're trying to do is no small feat. This is going to take time and persistence. Today will be majorly productive if you put your critical mind aside.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The difference between dishing the dirt and mudslinging is only a few drops of water. This is an excellent time to stay away from gossip altogether. The thrills are cheap, and the damage is costly.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (May 31). Fun and happiness are more important than you've been making them lately. A positive attitude is the key to keeping your stress levels low and your sprits high through this entire solar year. Next month you'll have something everyone needs, and you'll be paid very well for this. July and October bring love in abundance. Libra and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 15, 39, 44 and 18.
