IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
This year, you are driven to participate in certain events. Holding yourself back won’t work. Strive to discover the motives behind your actions. That knowledge will help you in many different situations. If you are single, be aware of a tendency to attract people who are emotionally unavailable. You could meet someone quite special this coming year. If you are attached, you will appreciate all the private one-on-one time you two will share. You develop a unique intimacy that will make your bond even stronger. Leo pushes you to perform at your highest level.
ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)
Note all the energy around you right now. You might be impressed by a close loved one and how he or she handles a problem. Allow more of your imagination to play into this day. A child or roommate could be unusually difficult. Tonight: Go with the flow, and try to have fun.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)
You understand what is happening between you and a family member, but others might not. You could feel as if you have to try too hard to get where you want to go. A partner could be touchier than you realize. Learn to deal with this person’s personality. Tonight: Mosey on home.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
You might feel as if you can’t make a key person understand what is happening. Pressure builds as a result of having a different agenda from those around you. A discussion likely won’t change these differences; accept this and move on. Tonight: Allow some chemistry into your life.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)
A risk might seem worth trying, but seek out feedback first. A need to understand what is expected might help you gain some perspective. A family member or loved one could be unusually touchy. Tonight: At home.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)
You could be enthusiastic about what you want. Others will respond in kind. You’ll want to come to terms with a changeable situation that is causing some tension. Some people won’t be able to tell how upset you are by a change of plans. Tonight: Put on your dancing shoes.
VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)
You might benefit from lying low instead of getting involved with a difficult issue. In fact, the less said, the better. Curb a tendency to act out by overindulging. You’ll feel much better if you use self-discipline. Tonight: Vanish into the night while you can.
LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)
You might be forced to take on a challenge that you typically would walk away from. The emphasis is on your long-term desires. You could be overwhelmed by everything that is going on. You’ll lead a meeting with ease, as your supporters will be present. Tonight: Out late.
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)
You could be in a position where you must take charge. When you do, success will greet you. Observe a tendency to swallow your anger. You will feel much better if you admit what ails you to the person who is causing your distress. Tonight: Count on being up till the wee hours.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
When you detach from a potentially volatile situation, you discover that you gain a better sense of direction. You tend to be drawn to uproar and chaos. Read between the lines when dealing with a matter where you need to be on top of your game. Tonight: Join a friend.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)
One-on-one relating takes you down a new path. Your interaction with a friend could be so intense that you seem to get locked into his or her way of thinking. Don’t try to convince others that you have the right idea or solution. Listen to what everyone has to say. Tonight: Be with a partner.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)
Know that you might not be able to convince a loved one of your good intentions. Try to look at what this person is doing, and then decide how to respond to his or her behaviour. You’ll want to speak to someone who has some expertise. Tonight: Be near your favourite people.
PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)
Clearly, you have a choice to make, and you will make it. Your involvement with a project could be coloured by a strong attraction to one of the individuals with whom you are working. Try not to get your professional life mixed up with your private life. Tonight: Celebrate the weekend!
