Born today, you are optimistic, cheerful, forward-thinking, and always willing to give those around you the benefit of the doubt -- almost! There may be a few times, now and then, when you see things through a much darker lens than usual, and when you become uncharacteristically selfish and self-absorbed. Still, these periods are likely to be few and far-between, fortunately! For the most part, you are just the kind of person that others like to be around, and many actually strive to be like you, though you are in many ways truly inimitable. Your energy is effusive and undying; your resolve is absolute; your charm is infectious; your beauty is much more than skin-deep.
On one or two occasions, despite your tendency to the contrary, you may prove unprepared for what life throws at you. At times like these, it will be important for you to rely on others to see you through -- and there are likely to be many who are willing to lend you a helping hand, in both the short and the long term.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will want to approach things in a more conservative fashion than usual, perhaps. Conditions suggest caution throughout the day.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can save a little money and still enjoy a certain luxury that is right up your alley. A friend is ready to start something new.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can pledge loyalty to another's cause without giving up on your own. There is room for both on the docket for a few days to come.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Though you may not succeed the first time, you'll have the chance to redeem yourself later on. Subsequent efforts are memorable.
