LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You'll have no trouble expressing your thoughts and ideas to others because you feel prankish, saucy and bold.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a great day for those of you write, sell, market, teach, act or drive for a living. You are go, go, go! Your mind is strong, interested and energetic, which is why your conversations with others will be pumped and powerful. You're in the zone.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Trust your moneymaking ideas because they might be clever. You're thinking a mile a minute about many things over a wide range of subjects, but all of it comes down to money when you really think about it. You see ways to get ahead and promote yourself.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might want to get out and travel. You certainly want to talk to lots of people because you feel curious about the world. Others will listen to you because you will put a lot of yourself and what you have to say -- you're convincing. Your mind is fast, you're a moving target.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Research will pay off because you have diligence, perseverance and mental sharpness when it comes to seeking solutions or finding answers. You won't give up until you find what you're looking for because your mind is revved with energy.



Physicist/mathematician Albert Einstein (1879-1955) shared your birthday. You are warm and affectionate. You often study yourself in relation to others. You have a fine mind and sometimes conjecture other lifestyles or even different planes of living. You value your independence but are cautious about new avenues. You are accepting and tolerant in your personal life. This year will be a social year where all your relationships will improve.
