Born today, you are not a person to be taken lightly, to be trifled with or to deceive in any way, for you are almost certain to uncover any sort of falsehood, prove yourself stronger than anyone might suppose and to retaliate in a way that gives you a resounding victory over those who underestimate you. You are an earnest individual, and you take your work and the work of others very seriously. You are not one to gloss over that which you feel deserves your utmost attention and sincere effort. You are able to work well with others, provided that it is understood from the outset that in the case of disagreement your will is going to prevail; as long as everyone you work with accepts this as incontrovertible fact, all will be well. Does that happen all the time? Of course not! And so you must always be prepared to deal with conflicts as they arise.
You do not put a lot of stock in being understood; you feel that it is better to be taken at face value than to be "interpreted" in some way -- for interpretation can lead to misinterpretation, which, in turn, can be disastrous. You are upright, forthright and stalwart; you can be counted on to do what you say you will do -- period.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can do more than you have been assigned, but take care that your enthusiasm doesn't get the best of you. You do have your limits!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Self-expression is not only appreciated today, but it is actually encouraged. You have a lot to share with those who are in your camp.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You mustn't underestimate the power of your unique style; today, how you do a thing matters more than the fact that you are doing it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Hold on to certain convictions today despite any challenges you may receive and you'll come out on top. What you know really matters to you!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Something is likely to happen today that you're not going to forget anytime soon -- and the lesson it teaches you lasts a lifetime, perhaps.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can't stop something that gets started today, whether or not you wanted it to begin. All you have to do now is ride it out.
