IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you could feel held back at times. You have the energy, luck and knowledge to push any project to success. Someone around you frequently puts you down or makes mincemeat of your ideas. You will need to learn to move past this person’s criticism. If you are single, you could be overwhelmed by the amount of people around you who would like to have more than a friendship. You might want to date for a while. If you are attached, you often come home somewhat deflated, but your significant other is there for you. Your relationship becomes increasingly more important. Sagittarius can rain on your parade.
ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)
Be aware of your limitations when dealing with someone at a distance. The two of you are not on the same page when you have distance separating you. Others around you might have the expectation that your bond is the same all the time. Tonight: Act on an odd feeling.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)
Your feelings regarding many people seeking you out are likely to emerge. You could feel popular or annoyed, but either way you might need to make an adjustment to your schedule. Opportunities seem to pop up from out of the blue. Tonight: As you like it.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
Pace yourself — you have a lot of ground to cover. Open up to a swift change in someone’s mood. Be willing to jump on an opportunity that suddenly arises. You might notice that a partner starts acting differently. Find out what is going on. Tonight: Choose something just for you!
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)
You might be disappointed by someone in the morning, but you’ll manage to soar right above it later in the day. Your imagination could be a little wild. These flights of fancy will be a fun distraction, but they also might set you up to be let down. Tonight: Out late.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)
Focus more on your home and personal life. A partner might be standoffish. Given some time, however, he or she will see your authenticity and come in closer once more. A conversation could take a serious tone. Step back some. Tonight: Your pad is where it’s at.
VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)
You’ll respond from an authentic point of view, which could create somewhat of a ruckus. Be aware of what you are asking of someone. This person might have a strong reaction. Give the situation low priority if you do not want an argument. Tonight: Hang out at home.
LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)
You might not be in touch with your feelings right now. You’ll want to be appreciated by certain people, but be careful about showing off or making more of a particular happening than exists. Be realistic. Tonight: Let others make it their treat.
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) You might find yourself in a comfortable spot and feel as if you have been in the very same place before. Use caution with any money agreements made today and in the next few months; they could become burdensome. Tonight: There you are, having a great time!
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
You’ll sense that you are entering a challenging period. Don’t worry — you have the wherewithal to handle what is coming. Make sure that communication keeps flowing. Don’t allow a disagreement to progress too far today or in the next few weeks. Tonight: Vanish, if you can.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)
Assess what is happening in a meeting. You might need some supporters easing your way to continue on the path you have decided to pursue. A loved one’s compassion for you is likely to come through in a big way. Tonight: Make sure you have all your ducks in a row.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)
You might need to fill in where others have backed off. You have the strength and the drive to do just that. You could encounter a hassle with a friend that results from a change of plans. Go with the flow, and others will relax soon enough. Tonight: Allow the leader in you to emerge.
PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)
Let your imagination flourish as you hit a problem. You’ll sleuth right through it, as long as you can get past conventional thinking. A boss could be very cold; perhaps he or she feels challenged by your abilities. Move past this person’s attitude. Tonight: Be around great music.
