Born today, you are the first person to get excited about a new idea, a new project or a new assignment, for you recognize the potential for adventure and learning in everything that comes your way in life. Certainly, you are one of the most optimistic individuals born under your sign -- and this may actually make you rather fearless in your approach to both personal and professional challenges. Though you recognize that bad things can certainly happen to good people, you prefer to remember that good things happen just as often -- if not more frequently. It is this outlook that keeps you going when others choose to throw up their hands and quit in disgust or frustration; you never cease to recognize the enormous potential in any given situation. You are hard-working and tenacious; when you decide to do something, you do it.

As busy as you may be at any given time, you're never one to overlook the needs of those around you; just as you will work tirelessly to reach your goals, you will dedicate yourself to assisting others as well -- and quite often you will find yourself working in tandem toward something that you and another both want.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are after bargains, and you're going to have to hunt. Resist the temptation to pay for the first thing that strikes your fancy!
