The Leo moon that rules the day will exaggerate any stress caused by Mercury's terse angle to Neptune. The aspect never quite comes together, though, and there will be many "funny stories" about close calls and near misses. Artful narratives will be invented to keep the excitement churning.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Life isn't a popularity contest, but if it were, you would win it today. You seem to have what people are looking for, and you're willing to share it in just the right amount.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Avoid experiencing life in hyperbole. Discount exaggerations of the mind and word. When nothing is the best, worst, nicest or meanest, you can see it for what it really is.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are constantly issuing statements to the world, even when you don't realize it. Your attitude and appearance speak for you. You'll find the response you get in return a little surprising now.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). A burden is eased, and the relief you feel about this will bring about a surge of self-control. You'll work for healthy payoffs instead of settling for unhealthy, temporary benefits.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are highly involved in life, and the level of attention you give your interests can be personally demanding and sometimes downright inconvenient. But the joy you feel being in the mix of things makes it all worthwhile.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everyone shows off when they want attention. You'll be artful in your attempts to capture interest, and that will make all the difference in the quality of attention you receive.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People want to be associated with winners, and yet close contact with big personalities often breeds jealousy and discontent. You'll be sorting through such issues over the next few days.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You aren't born optimistic. You have to grow into the label by repeating the tendency to look on the bright side until it's a habit. You'll take hold of your thoughts and cultivate good will.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When you hear good news, take it as a sign. This is just the tip of the iceberg. From here on out, things get better and better. Believe and act in accordance, and it becomes true.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Recruiting is an art. Instead of merely asking people to join forces with you, turn it into an event.

People are more seduced by celebration and ritual.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You'll see the charm in things that others don't want to think about. This is what sets you apart as a friendly force and an artistic influence on the otherwise ordinary.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When someone says "no" to you, you'll be wise to take this as a good sign. A fast "no" is, after all, so much better than a "maybe" that drags on indefinitely.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 15). Entertaining and engaging social happenings will bring several opportunities to make useful connections and enjoy different scenery. You'll dump old baggage in February. In April, you'll be a part of a new team. June and July feature professional growth and a greater sense of community and contribution. Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 24, 39 and 41.

NUMEROLOGY FUN WITH NUMBER EIGHT: Find your magic number by adding up all of the numbers of your birthday until you wind up with one number. For instance, all the numbers in the birthday 12/9/1976 add up to 35, and then three plus five equals eight, so the final number is 8.

If EIGHT is your magic number, you see life as a grand mystery you will never completely figure out. You're happy about that. Magic lives as long as you still have questions that are unanswered. Still, your drive to learn more guides your choices every day. You have a talent for understanding the inner workings of things. This is true on a mechanical, spiritual, political, societal and emotional level. Nothing exists in three dimensions for you. Rather, life sprawls, tunneling down, springing up, stretching grandly before you in ever-deeper ways.

You are playful and provocative and have a way of getting others to open up. For this reason, eights are often privy to secret information, which they guard with great loyalty.

QUOTE FOR EIGHT: "Life is a great and wondrous mystery, and the only thing we know that we have for sure _is what is right here and right now. Don't miss it."_ — Leo Buscaglia_

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Adam Brody voices the lead character in a new animated series on MTV called "Good Vibes." Born under a lucky sun, with Mercury and Neptune in Sagittarius as well, the actor has called his new project "kismet." Sagittarians attract luck mainly because they radiate happy, easy-going vibes and stay open to the many ways in which luck can come to a person.
