Born today, you are adept at appearing as if you have not a care in the world, but the truth is that you care very much and you move through life as if every moment is pivotal. Because of this approach, you have a way of avoiding the kinds of roadblocks and obstacles that threaten to impede the progress of others, so you are able to maintain forward motion even when those around you must pull up short. You are realistic, but also quite positive in your outlook. Even when beset with challenges, when bad things happen in your life and the lives of those close to you, you are able to find the silver lining in the clouds that loom overhead. You manage to stay well ahead of the pack in most competitive situations, simply because you don't let the little things affect you -- and you let the big things affect you only so much!
You have been endowed with tremendous talents and a good deal of ambition, and this combination can win you success after success, provided you do what you can to develop these assets in a realistic, effective manner. You don't leave things to chance; you understand that success is something you must plan for.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll want to investigate a certain occurrence on your own in order to arrive at an objective conclusion. You won't be influenced!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your instincts will tell you to keep your distance from major events, but a part of you is going to want to become more directly involved.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be feeling somewhat odd. What happens as a result may put you in a vulnerable position and raise certain sensitive questions.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can do something you thought was beyond your capability. The reaction you'll get from others may surprise you as well!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Doing something your own way will win you more than admiration from those in authority. Very soon you may get a promotion -- of sorts.
