Libra: Above all they love balance, peace and harmony. They're the best choice to sooth hurt feelings and ruffled feathers. They tend to be elegant and good looking. Either make one an ambassador or your spouse. Orientation: Where else? The center.

Scorpio: Hire only if you're planning a revolution. Orientation: Usually far left of Lenin.

Sagittarius: Although commonly thought of as the sportsmen and jocks of the zodiac, they are also scholars and academics, especially in the liberal arts fields. A good choice as the idea wo/man for the Geminis. Can chair your brain trust, too. Orientation: On either side of center, but not too far either way.

Capricorn: Born to be the "right hand man". Particularly good at working with your Cancer keeping things on track. Word of warning: They are ambitious and patient. You could wind up working for them. Not that they planned it; it just happened that way. Orientation: They're natural conservatives.

Aquarius: Another idea wo/man. Unlike Saggies, they don't look to history for ideas; they look ahead. "Screw a manned mission to Mars. Let's go to Titan!" They can be nuts; they also can propose a Marshall Plan. Listen to them. Orientation: They're natural progressives.

Pisces: Hire all of them you can for phone banking and door to dooring. They're sweet natured, mild mannered and adaptable. They can make you look good. Orientation: Because you're a good person, they're loyal to you. Party, schmarity.

Sun signs and your political campaign.

Aries: Probably not the best choice for a political operative. They tend to shoot, then aim. They're also into immediate satisfaction. They also can't lie worth a damn. However, if you need someone for a frontal attack of any kind, an Aries is your best bet. They don't take prisoners. Orientation: Extreme at either end of the spectrum with a touch of libertarianism.

Taurus: Not that much into politics. However, if you need someone to take of the funding, hire a Taurus. They are very honest and experts at money management. You probably have more money at the end of the campaign than when you began. Orientation: When they can be bothered, a little right of center - Eisenhower Republicans.

Gemini: One word -- communications. They're your press secretaries and speech writers. They're the ones who will come up the perfect one word or one sentence summation of your political philosophy. They can write speeches that lift buildings off the ground. They can argue the leg off a mule. Only problem with them is it can be difficult keeping them focused. Orientation: Usually a bit left of center, but not always.

Cancer: Family is everything to a true crab, so a good choice for your campaign manager or chief of staff. They'll take good care of the troops and of you. They'll also provide the necessary discipline. Give them praise and a nice gift once in awhile and they'll move mountains for you. Orientation: Center and focused on social welfare.

Leo: They love the spot light and center stage, so unless they are the candidate, they don't do campaigns. However, they can radiate charm. So pour on the flattery and they'll smooze money out of deep pockets and give that killer nomination speech at the convention. Orientation: Zip.

Virgo: Hardest working of the signs. Also the greatest pickers of nits and diggers of dirt. They like to be on the move. So best choice for your whip and bad cop. They'll be more than willing to travel anywhere and "put a bit of stick about". Just don't use them up; they're not monsters. Orientation: Depends upon who they personally dislike.

To be continued.
