(March 21-April 19) You could find your­self in an awkward con­ver­sa­tion or a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion. Your strong feel­ings come for­ward with a fam­ily mem­ber. A proac­tive friend is likely to shake up the sta­tus quo. Know that a fast-ap­pear­ing so­lu­tion will re­solve an is­sue. Tonight: Speak your mind.

Tau­rus (April 20-May 20) You could find a part­ner to be volatile and un­pre­dictable. You have a lot to share, but tim­ing counts. A boss could push you hard to join him or her. Your abil­ity to be an in­de­pen­dent thinker proves to be one of your strong­est qual­i­ties. Tonight: Pay bills, then make plans.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 20) The New Moon in your sign is a pos­i­tive in­di­ca­tion of a new be­gin­ning. Do you know when and where you would like to en­er­gize a cer­tain area of your life? Com­mu­ni­ca­tion re­volves around money and spend­ing. Do not hes­i­tate to go for what you want. Tonight: All smiles. 35 37

Can­cer (June 21-July 22) You will be more ver­bal than you have been in a long time. Your high en­ergy is met by some­one else’s. The two of you re-en­er­gize each other’s minds. You might de­cide to keep your feel­ings to your­self for now. You feel vul­ner­a­ble in some way. Tonight: Van­ish while you can.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Zero in on a long-term goal. You might not be as con­tent as you’d like to be. Your sense of hu­mor emerges, caus­ing you to smile and warm up the mo­ment. You have a unique way of look­ing at sit­u­a­tions. Oth­ers ap­pre­ci­ate hear­ing your opin­ions. Tonight: Find your friends.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Ten­sion builds be­tween you and an author­ity fig­ure. You need to treat this per­son with re­spect, even if you have no in­ten­tion of fol­low­ing his or her lead. Open up to new pos­si­bil­i­ties that in­trigue and in­spire you. Re­sist the urge to with­draw. Tonight: A must ap­pear­ance.

Li­bra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You have the abil­ity to see the big pic­ture. Un­der­stand some­one else’s pri­or­i­ties, re­gard­less of what is go­ing on. Your abil­ity to step back and ob­serve marks your de­ci­sions. Take news with a grain of salt, as the source might be un­re­li­able. Tonight: Din­ner with a loved one.

Scor­pio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A part­ner goes out of his or her way to make a fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion work for both of you. One-onone re­lat­ing re­sults in a bet­ter re­la­tion­ship. You’ll see another ex­am­ple of what can make a dif­fer­ence in re­lat­ing. Look at the big pic­ture. Tonight: Be with a fa­vorite per­son.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might not even need to pick up the phone to have a dis­cus­sion. The other party is likely to make the first move. Know that you might get an ear­ful. Use cau­tion when deal­ing with this per­son, as the cards seem to fall in his or her fa­vor. Tonight: Re­main re­spon­sive.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You un­der­stand what is ex­pected from you pro­fes­sion­ally and on a daily ba­sis. You might want to start a new diet or ex­er­cise rou­tine. Sched­ule a checkup with your doc­tor. Tonight: Curb any ou­tra­geous spend­ing or indulgence.

Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are more volatile than you have been in a while. You would be hap­pi­est if you pull back and re­lax. Nev­er­the­less, your in­cli­na­tion is to ex­press your­self and be more cre­ative. Tonight: Be a lit­tle wild!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Your abil­ity to get past has­sles and make light of prob­lems could be tested to the max. Be care­ful about sit­ting on anger. You could be caus­ing your­self a prob­lem, which could emerge when you least ex­pect it to. If you can, ver­bal­ize what ails you. Tonight: Din­ner for two.
