SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21). Competing interests between loved ones will shift. Expect social harmony, romantic attraction and a return to shared priorities. Long-term friends and lovers will appreciate your intense style: remain expressive and refuse to change your outlook. Workplace relations may be strained.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 20). Both business and romantic partnerships will experience a sudden increase in optimism, confidence and shared understanding. Several months of stagnation or career restlessness are ending. Use this time to build trust and create powerful alliances: you won't be disappointed.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 19). Romantic intimacy is a prime theme. Watch for loved ones or potential mates to subtly communicate their love, affection and sensuality. Enjoy private flirtation and seductive invitations: emotional attractions will be genuine and deeply felt. Home and financial negotiations may require careful diplomacy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Emotional doubt and strained family relations will end. Expect loved ones to introduce creative home improvements or fast social changes. Areas strongly affected are group events, celebrations or unique announcements. Don't avoid controversy: this is the right time to discuss bold ideas or ask loved ones to leave outdated expectations in the past.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 19). Loved ones may wish to discuss yesterday's ideas or promises. Let the past fade: this is not the right time to revisit old habits, patterns or motives. Encourage friends and lovers to develop new interests or activities: social diversion will be helpful. Many Pisceans may be offered a chance to restart a work project or clarify a strained business relationship.

ARIES (March 20-April 18). Difficult property decisions and financial limitations will ease. Watch for loved ones or older relatives to provide unique options for shared duties. Revised family plans may be involved. If so, don't under estimate the creativity of friends or relatives: loved ones may now need a higher degree of control over planned home events.

TAURUS (April 19-May 19). Postponed or missed opportunities will reappear. Watch for employers or potential business partners to revitalize past policies or forgotten ideas. Use this time to reaffirm long-term goals and begin fresh projects: much can be gained in the coming months. Romantic relationships may experience a brief but intense phase of negotiations.

GEMINI (May 20-June 20). Past social doubts or failed invitations will be easily resolved. Expect confident proposals and rekindled passions. Some Geminis, especially those born late in May, will also end almost 11 months of family stress or strained love relationships. Expect slow but deliberate progress and watch for loved ones to finally reveal their private thoughts and long-term goals.

CANCER (June 21-July 21). Expect loved ones to openly discuss past events, outdated obligations and future plans. Romantic understandings reached will set new emotional rules into action: be assertive. Listen closely to the advice or comments of younger friends, relatives or colleagues.

LEO (July 22-Aug. 22). For many Leos, quick workplace options and revised job roles will arrive: expect new information systems or media concerns to be a strong influence. Don't hold back: it's time for decisive action. Watch also for a rare social triangle involving older friends or past relationships.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 21). Loved ones may finally address past issues of security or long-term family plans. Cheerfully discuss all options: renewed promises and fast property decisions will bring the desired results. Social triangles may be unavoidable. If so, don't press for details and expect friends or colleagues to resist new ideas or be firmly set in their opinions.

LIBRA (Sept. 22-Oct. 22). Deep feelings of love, attraction and commitment are accented: expect emerging intimacy in love relationships and strong emotional bonds between loved ones. Leave doubts behind: for many Librans, a complex period of inner conflict and lost trust needs to fade. Stay focused: family planning and revised home renovations may be at issue.

IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK ... workplace opportunities may be difficult to find. Remain patient, however: planetary alignments suggest that much of 2008 will prove to be one of the most successful years of the past decade. Watch for new assignments in distant locations or concerning foreign agencies. After March 27th, job change will be fast and complete: stay open to unexpected career options and rare business promises.
