ARIES (March 21-April 19) You are ignoring successes (or helpful people). Progress will occur faster when you focus on what's right in your world.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Greater self-control will be necessary in order to navigate today's many temptations.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21) You don't have to handle everything at once. Ordering your tasks by priority, size and timing will help you stave off negative thoughts and avoid feeling overwhelmed.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) If you ask people to do things that do not come naturally to them, the process will be a struggle for both of you. Align your requests accordingly.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Don't underestimate how deeply people might fall in love with you. It won't be fun to be loved much more than you love.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Just because something is legal doesn't mean it's moral. Use your judgment and heed your conscience, as well as your gut feelings.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You'll roll with what happens, not letting any single event deter you from your purpose. It is more important to keep moving along than it is to arrive at any one destination.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) Most vengeance is small-minded and shows a lack of character. If there are exceptions to the rule, they are few and far between.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Your natural passion sometimes presents itself in the form of anger. You can avoid getting angry, though, by removing yourself from situations that have the potential to make you blow your stack.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Just because you don't reach the highest peak today doesn't mean your climb was in vain. The altitude you achieve now will help you with tomorrow's climb.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) People show and interpret affection differently. Through trial and error, you'll figure out how best to communicate your love.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) When you think of a certain person, conflicting emotions arise. To hold these tumultuous feelings inside takes complexity, intelligence and a deep soul.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 30) You are talented and powerful. Honor your many gifts by paying attention to those who do the work you don't have to do. The efforts of outsiders allow you to grow and master your craft. By giving your loved ones what they need, you ensure your happy existence. Invest in a September vacation. Your love signs are Leo and Aquarius. Your lucky numbers are: 10, 8, 5, 6 and 9.
