Aries (March 21-April 19): Already sensitive, today you are particularly affected by the sights and sounds of the outside world. You'll use this to your advantage.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): A situation is coming that will require you to make an important change. Good. It's something you've wanted to do for a long time.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): Whether it's light housework or wood chopping, manual labor will give you a break from the chatter upstairs.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): People marvel at your ability to move through conflict without a scratch. What they don't see is your planning.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You tend to arrive before everybody else to get a head start on the day. Today it would do you well to be a bit more collaborative.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Making it up as you go along is your typical response to adversity. Your new situation warrants a little planning.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): A small creative effort will be seen by more people than you thought would care and will make an impact on people you've never met.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): Some people think you're shy. You will have an opportunity to show you merely choose to speak only when you have something to say.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have been turning over a problem in the back of your mind. The answer will come during a completely unrelated activity.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you borrowed something and forgot to return it, make good today.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Inspiration so rarely comes as a thunderclap. But once in a while, the lightning does flash — as it does today.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): If you bite off more than you can chew, you will probably chew it anyway. Go carefully and slowly so as not to choke.
Today's birthday (May 25): Charm and grace are your chief talents, and this year they are augmented by a heightened awareness of your surroundings. A vacation in July will be romantic. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are 9, 50, 16, 30 and 11.
