ARIES (March 21-April 19): Play hard to get. Get a new perspective by talking to unusual people in the immediate environment, but don't put your heart on the line.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Amorous assignations could heat passions to the boiling point. Make sure you bring oven mitts, so you don't get scalded.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be as good as you can be at everything you do. Don't be overly embarrassed or feel guilty about errors.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Pinch pennies today, and there will be ample cents to spend tomorrow. Put off romantic ideas until tomorrow.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Opposites do attract. But it is always the birds of a feather who end up flocking together.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your social skills are in high demand. Others in close connection could be somewhat curt and to the point.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don't let mistakes keep you from trying again. If you fall off a horse, climb back into the saddle.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Let the good times roll. Love won't fall apart when there are minor distractions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Romantic fantasies can come true. You are likely to hit the target if you aim for lasting affection. Reassess financial matters and consider changes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Crawl out from under your rock. Cosmic conditions are improving by leaps and bounds.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Friends and lovers might be the same thing. Your ability to attract admiration gets four gold stars.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The worst that can happen has probably occurred. Don't let your imagination get the best of you.

IF OCT. 26 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Maintain a low profile for the next four to six weeks. Your ambitions are peaking, but you must pay your dues to become a member of the club. Work hard between now and mid- December, but avoid irrevocable changes or taking on additional financial obligations. You are an apt pupil and will learn to handle your money wisely.
