Aries

(March 21-April 19) You might opt to let go of pres­sure and judg­ments. Flow with the mo­ment, and at­tempt to clean up after an un­ex­pected event that might have thrown some of your life struc­ture into chaos. A re­spected friend or fam­ily mem­ber could be unusu­ally stern. Tonight: Chris­ten the week­end.

Taurus

(April 20-May 20) Your cre­ativ­ity emerges, caus­ing you to change di­rec­tion. You might want to slow down some, as you likely don’t have all the facts. Seek­ing out some­one with more ex­per­tise could set you back, as this per­son might not be read­ily avail­able. Tonight: Be as naughty as you want!

(May 21-June 20) You could be unusu­ally quiet and with­drawn. A part­ner or loved one might be mis­read­ing the source of a sit­u­a­tion as well as your at­ti­tude. As a re­sult, you might not be par­tic­u­larly forth­com­ing. Your close­ness does not sup­port clear­ing up an is­sue. Tonight: Head home early.

Gemini Can­cer

(June 21-July 22) You want to get past a prob­lem and un­der­stand what is hap­pen­ing with var­i­ous peo­ple sur­round­ing you. You might feel as if some­one is mis­read­ing you. At­tempt to stay open and have a dis­cus­sion to help oth­ers be in the same men­tal space as you. Tonight: Have an im­por­tant chat.

(July 23-Aug. 22)

Get past a mis­un­der­stand­ing. Pre­vent a has­sle by con­firm­ing a meet­ing place and time when mak­ing plans. Ex­tra ef­fort on your part could make all the dif­fer­ence in all facets of your life. You might want to make it an early night. Tonight: Ac­cept that you are not the En­er­gizer Bunny.

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You are com­ing from a dif­fer­ent men­tal space than many of the peo­ple around you. You also com­mu­ni­cate in a very dif­fer­ent way. Ver­ify that you are on the same page as a part­ner. In the long run, events and dis­cus­sions will run more smoothly. Tonight: Get to­gether with a friend.

Leo Virgo Libra

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might be mulling over an on­go­ing is­sue as you seek out an­swers. You also might de­cide not to share as much as usual, at least un­til you’ve sorted through all the facts. Re­main sen­si­tive to an older per­son who seems a bit off or closed down. Tonight: Do what works best for you.

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Zero in on a work-re­lated mat­ter. You smile, and an­other per­son re­sponds, per­haps with the ex­cep­tion of a grouchy room­mate or fam­ily mem­ber. Main­tain a lev­el­headed per­spec­tive, and un­der­stand where oth­ers’ en­ergy is stem­ming from. Tonight: Meet up with loved ones.

(Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You of­ten are flam­boy­ant, but right now you are ef­fi­cient and se­ri­ous. You might not have your nor­mal tol­er­ance for chitchat and shar­ing news. Clear out your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and manda­tory to-dos. You have more to share than oth­ers thought pos­si­ble. Tonight: Out late.

Scorpio Sagit­tar­ius Capricorn

(Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Reach out to a friend or loved one who lives at a dis­tance. You could feel con­fused by ev­ery­thing you are hear­ing. Be clear about your choices. You might get to­gether with a fa­vorite per­son in the near fu­ture. You could be mood­ier than you real­ize. Tonight: Say yes to an of­fer.

Aquarius

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You could be ex­hausted from do­ing what a part­ner re­quests. You like re­lat­ing to this per­son in gen­eral, but you might sense a de­mand­ing at­ti­tude that could re­volve around time-sen­si­tive is­sues. Tonight: Make it a party.

(Feb. 19-March 20) De­fer to a part­ner or loved one. Of­ten you miss a de­tail or two, es­pe­cially when it comes to mak­ing plans. The other party in­volved might feel as though he or she can take the lead, so hand this per­son the reins. Tonight: Do what makes you smile!
