Today’s birthday (Monday, July 10, 2017) This year you feel the pull and push of those in power. A boss could become controlling to the extent that you might have trouble dealing with him or her. Consider not reacting, if possible. If you are single, a friendship plays a major role in creating a romance. You might meet this person at a party or with a friend. If you are attached, you often find that you need to back off and stop arguing with your sweetie about who’s right. Once you accept and respect your differences, the romance between you will heat up. Aquarius can be a warm, caring friend who presents a different view.
Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ Act on an inclination to express more nurturing toward a family member or dear friend. You provide a great example of what time can do and how it can change a person’s attitude. Focus on a meeting whose purpose you can identify with. Tonight: Invite a special friend along.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★ You have the ability to impress those who count, particularly a parent or boss. You will be accepting more responsibility than you have in a while. These extra duties have been delegated to you because of your ability to integrate new ideas. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ Reach out to a loved one at a distance. There is an unusual amount of activity going on around you. Recognize how much ground you need to cover, as you could have several projects to carry out. Make an important call to someone at a distance. Tonight: Break past the obvious.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ You prefer to relate on a one-on-one level. A partner has a tendency to be too intense; however, you will note that his or her approach and views seem to be transforming. Be gracious, and make no assumptions. Tonight: Confirm plans rather than show up at the wrong place.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Defer to someone whom you care a lot about; you will want some feedback about a prevalent issue. Ask key questions in order to gain more information. A work matter might seem more serious than it actually is. Know that everything will be OK. Tonight: Accept an offer.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★ Throw yourself into a creative project that appeals to you. Understand what is going on within a group of friends. Your creativity surges when dealing with a matter that you are passionate about. Fatigue could come into play if you become anxious. Tonight: Take a walk.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ You are ready to focus more energy and creativity on a special relationship that often occupies your thoughts. As a result, you’ll find relating to this person to be much more rewarding. Take a nap if you feel overly tired or worn out. Tonight: Time for something fun.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ You might want to have an important discussion. Listen to what is being shared. Know that there are deep feelings motivating you. Don’t be overly concerned about an issue that keeps escalating, as it is likely to increase your anxiety. Tonight: Happily head home and relax.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★ You could run into a friend or sibling whom you adore. As a result, you might decide to change your schedule.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★★ Others seem to be rather chatty, and so could you! You will enjoy a sense of connection with the people around you. Caring emanates between you and a younger person or a new love interest. Consider your options more carefully. Tonight: Get into a moment of excitement.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★★ You’ll be more in tune with your inner voice than you normally are. Watch out, as you have a tendency to be overly sensitive until someone or something shakes you out of it. Investigate an offer involving your family life. Tonight: Home is where your heart is. The stars show the kind of day you’ll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult. Readers can write Jacqueline Bigar at jacquelinebigar.com.
