Comparing yourself to others is a waste of time and energy. You have abilities, ideas and talents that you need to develop and master. Highlight what you do have to offer and others will take note. Self-confidence comes from doing what you do best.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are likely to feel confined and to be easily upset if you stay indoors today. Use your energy to complete outdoor chores or to engage in some physical activity.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A recent quarrel with someone will stress you out. Open up the lines of communication, declare your feelings and admit your shortcomings. Clear your conscience and ease your mind.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will face an unpleasant consequence if people feel that you have been misleading. Before you convince others to join your mission, check your facts and leave no room for error.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Think before you speak. Your heightened emotions will cause you to overreact. There is no need to be defensive if no one is threatening you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your charming ways and humorous mood will have people flocking to your side. Accept as many social invitations as you can handle. A change of fortune is imminent.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Before you sign up for a loan or make a major purchase, you should do a realistic assessment of your financial status. Consult a banking or investment adviser, if necessary, in order to clarify your position.
