Aries (March 21-April 19): Making a favorable impression on the family and friends of those you love will be of extreme importance. Put forth the effort.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Instead of asking what would make you "pretty happy," go for the big thrills. This day will be memorable.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): Name dropping and boasting may impress some, but not you. You are unpretentious, and you look for quiet intelligence.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Doing twice what you did yesterday is possible because there will be no impedance. It doesn't matter what anyone else is doing.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You wisely realize that at the end of the day, your only concern will be whether you have loved enough.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You think you've placed your hopes too high when you may be undercutting yourself and wishing for too little.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): There's something odd about today's circumstances, and the strangest part of all is that no one seems to notice it but you.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You feel restricted in a certain situation, but things are about to open up for you. Observe your choices. Get creative; brainstorm.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You'll enjoy learning how things work. Once you understand the mechanics of a situation, you'll find ways to improve the look and feel of them.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have mastered the art of delegating. However, today, if you can do it yourself, don't ask another person to do it for you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You'll take care of yourself in all the ways that matter to you. And someone else will fill in with special extras to make you feel loved.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Everyone will be chipping in and contributions are relative: The one who gives a dollar might be the biggest giver of all, if it's his only dollar.
Today's birthday (Dec. 30): You set an exciting goal for your personal life, and your entire scene is energized. Loved ones open up new resources just for you in January. You will be the authority figure in February; be careful to use your power well. You will be featured in a performance in March. There's a windfall in May. Cancer and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are 4, 1, 21, 16 and 50.
