May 05, 2011|Holiday Mathis

Aries (March 21-April 19): You're not working for the praise, laughter and applause, but it lets you know you're on the right track.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): The extremes of work and play, socializing and self-interest, money and art — balancing these things is not something that always comes naturally.

Gemini (May 21-June 21): You won't boss people around, and yet you'll cause them to behave differently. You are influential because you speak your mind.

Cancer (June 22-July 22): You have several tasks to tackle, and you will spend about two hours on each one. You will be incredibly productive in these relatively short stints of work.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You will benefit from exploring your interest in the natural world. You have a special connection with rocks, plants, animals and weather.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The type of help you want will come from someone who is confident enough to give you a firm handshake while looking you in the eye.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): You'll gain the respect of a boss or colleague because you keep going forward even when there's no sign that you'll find success.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You'll mostly keep your opinions and observations to yourself. However, there is one thing you notice, which you should share. Otherwise, everyone will miss out.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You like who you are, and you like your life. You say "yes" to only the propositions that look, sound and feel like they are going to be a blast.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You don't ask anyone to be perfect. You just ask them to show up and try. You'll see the proof in action that someone respects you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There's more for you to do, so some of your usual self-care activities might slip through the cracks. The sacrifices you make will be worth it in the end.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You can make a mistake and come back from it. But you much prefer to avoid the pitfalls in the first place.

Today's birthday (May 5): You'll discover something new that you can do or a different and more effective way of operating with people. You'll use this skill to bring prosperity to you and yours. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 10, 24, 33 and 17.
