The appeal of illusive, unobtainable goals is part of the deal these days with the sun pulling across the sky at Neptune. The opposition of these major players creates such a tension between what we want and what is reasonable that frustration becomes a fixture of the day. It's something to get used to, the constant craving that's always been.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Things do not always run smoothly for you, but they run right. You'll be glad about how it all shakes out. The important part is that you believe in life's process and don't worry yourself as it's happening.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Commit your thoughts to paper, even if you're pretty sure you don't know what they are. You probably won't realize what you think and what you fear until after you've written it down.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Say no, and say it often. The more you say no, the more room you'll have in your future. For you, it takes a conscious effort to stop doing things so you can concentrate on being instead.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are no perfect relationships. Luckily, the problem in yours is minor and can be effectively handled with a few choice words and the right attitude.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Perform what you practiced. It's important to get up in front of people. That experience will teach you what you can't learn any other way. It doesn't have to be the best show in the world to be of great value to you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A warm reception for good fortune will attract more of it. So when you're paid handsomely for an effort you would have freely given, don't turn down the money — just say thank you!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The perfect opportunity will arise to apply yourself. You have skills. You've already done the hard learning. Now you just need to relax and let your talent take over.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The creative juices will be flowing strong all around you today, so why not take your problem to the whole team? Brainstorming in a group will produce some of the most fun you've had in a long time.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some people will remain clueless even when handed the clue. It's important that you don't take it personally. Go where you feel the most appreciated.

CAPRICORN (Dec.

22-Jan.
19). So many rely on you that you are very seldom at the center of your day. However, you can and should make yourself the center of an hour or two. You deserve it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Whoever said two things cannot occupy the same space at the same time hasn't seen your family at work. A loved one will defy the laws of physics and get very much in your space. You couldn't be happier about it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You don't know what you have, and that's some of the beauty of having it. You're not self-conscious. You're giving in ways you don't understand. It's messy and wonderful.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 2). The alliances you make this month will continue to benefit you for years to come. Seek new income sources in October because people will pay you better than your current wage. November brings romance and excitement. March will be the beginning of an improvement process that will take all spring. Gemini and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 35 and 18.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'm a Leo, and I just enrolled in a new school year. The counselor in my department told me which classes I needed to take. They all sounded lame to me. I want to be an actor, so I decided to fill up my schedule with acting and dancing classes and one voice class. Now I feel like I'm getting away with something. My mom keeps asking me which math or science class I'm in. I'm 19 years old, I don't live at home, and I'm working my way through school. My parents aren't paying for it, so do they really have a right to comment on my choice of classes?

If they're not paying for your schooling, I see no reason why you have to report to them about your class load except that they are still your parents and they might have an opinion you would value. As you follow your Leo affinity for the spotlight, consider that a broad base of knowledge and experience may enhance your ability to act instead of detracting from it. Actors like Natalie Portman, who majored in psychology, and Ashton Kutcher, who majored in biochemical engineering, might concur!

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Virgo actress, director and producer Salma Hayek will star in and executive produce the new thriller "Septembers of Shiraz" with co-star Adrien Brody. Hayek was born under the industrious Virgo sun and has her natal Venus and Mars in Leo, the sign of entertainment. Her Jupiter in Cancer represents resourcefulness and strong business acumen.
