ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make an effort to be friendly to everyone. The people least deserving of your hand might need it the most and repay your kindness.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You could be passionate about getting what you want in areas that have to do with career, finance or business -- even love.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your tastes might stray toward the unusual, or you might feel an urge to invest in antiques or update your computer.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You are not defeated when you lose, but you are defeated when you quit. See a project through to completion.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It seems your popularity increases when your passion is sparked by meeting new and original personalities.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Knowledge is power. Learn as much as you can in the week ahead to be prepared for the future.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22.): You feel eager to impulsively experiment and might take on something out of the ordinary. Your reserve might prevent you from going wild.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Romance and enjoyment of shared intimacies might be key elements for you this week.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): When there are interesting things to see and do -- and people to meet -- it is difficult to get quite enough sleep.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your talent for organization can be applied to your relationships. Your attention is riveted on making relationships divine.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Because you are respectful toward others, they tend to respect you and will likely include you in group endeavors.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Romance, passion and love are gifts. Jump on any romantic opportunity in the week to come.

IF JULY 29 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You might be the busiest beaver in the business during the month ahead. You might be inspired by a romantic notion to try just a little harder to impress the boss or make yourself financially secure. In September and October, you might get a chance to rest on your laurels and might even get a taste of the gravy train. Don't take your good luck and the generosity of others for granted. Remember to express gratitude when favors are granted and to be sure to fulfill any promises you make. August is the best time for you to take a vacation or embark on an amorous fling that might have a future.
