ARIES (March 21-April 19). Part of the reason for your tough time back there was that your gifts were not fully appreciated in the arena in which you were trying to apply them. You will focus your natural abilities differently and net much bigger rewards.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Today it will be futile to try to move things along at a different pace, and no one cool is doing that anyway. So just relax and let things meander as they will. You may even like where they wind up.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Much will depend on the question you ask. The right question will be like a magic button that opens up the elevator doors and allows you to step inside and go as high or as deep as you like.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). As much as you might like to be fooled by that charismatic pitch person (especially if said pitch has to do with being utterly in love with you), you wisely recognize the large element of drama here.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you can finish it in 10 minutes, don't take 20. It will never be perfect, but it was probably good enough five paces back. As they say in business, "Ship it."

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If you don't draw a line between what you're willing to do and what you're not, that line will emerge as if from great unseen forces - like hot lava drawn up from the core of the earth.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You've made compromises. It wasn't such a big deal because you sensed that what you were getting out of the deal would develop you in untold ways. Now you are about to push "repeat."

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You'll fix dysfunction and address it. How? First of all, no one will even see it as "dysfunctional" until you point it out. Of course, you would never point out such a thing without a solution.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If you say only what you mean, some won't hear you, some won't understand you, and some will take offense. But the ones who hear, understand, and accept will give you total trust.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It seems that the stability model doesn't offer all that much stability after all. It's time to spend more time with the visionaries who are more excited by what could be than by what has been.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). In poems and in parties, a great entry point is when things have already happened. Actually, this is true of relationships as well. You'll get the sense that you're hopping onto a moving train.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll present yourself through a variety of formats. Whether it's a meeting, an online forum, a telephone conversation, or another medium, it's the listening that will make the best impression.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (March 1). You know more than you let on. The silent power in that will be a key to your breakthrough this month. A lucky paycheck is involved, too. Family ties bring about strange and story-worthy events. There's a contest of sorts this summer and entering will make you a winner in more ways than one. Sagittarius and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 3, 33, 38 and 14.
