ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll be waiting on others on at least two important occasions today, one of which can be anticipated. Brace yourself for the other.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is no time for your confidence to abandon you; you need faith in your abilities to see you through an assignment that is daunting indeed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have much in common with a certain rival, and today you can make that awareness work for you as you seize the advantage -- perhaps permanently.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must be very clear in your desires today; a vague notion of what you want isn't enough as you navigate at least one slippery slope.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've been heading down the same path for some time, and today you may realize that you have the freedom to make a change if you so desire.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You cannot guarantee another complete satisfaction today, but you can certainly offer some enjoyment as you both face key challenges.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to step back and let someone else take the leading spot today. That person has much to offer you -- if only indirectly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You and a competitor may choose to work together toward a common goal today -- and that can set the tone for many days yet to come.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're going to have to take certain shots standing up today -- or be prepared to do so, which amounts to the same thing. Center yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An early start yields an early end to the day if all goes right. If not, it at least gives you something of a head-start.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may spend much of your time today waiting for things to line up just so -- and there's only so much you can do to make that happen.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A shoddy job attracts more than criticism today; it also puts you in a vulnerable position from which it is difficult to extricate yourself.
