Today’s birthday (Friday, July 14, 2017) This year you seem more open to taking action. You also are able to identify with others more easily. If you are single, you are likely to meet someone who seems like a kindred spirit or soul mate. You are more likely to encounter this person in the later part of the year. If you are attached, the two of you express more understanding toward each other. Romance’s flame will endure and often become bigger. Aries knows how to get you to express your feelings.
Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★ You might have stayed up late or gone overboard last night, so getting going might be difficult. You could be tempted to withdraw. However, if you are an artist or are feeling unusually creative, you’ll see the benefits of all the recent fun. Tonight: Among the crowds.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ Use the morning, when you feel empowered, for critical matters. A friend seeks you out, as he or she has some gossip to share. Give this person the space to express his or her thoughts. Later in the day, you could be changing plans one more time. Tonight: Vanish quickly.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★ You seem to be on center stage wherever you go. You might wonder what would be best to do as an issue drags you down. A discussion needs to be private, yet that might be hard to pull off right now. Tonight: Find your friends — you can be sure there is a party around them!
Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ Opportunities stem from those in your immediate circle. You enjoy a hectic pace. You also might need to deal with a situation that suddenly triggers some angry feelings. Be aware of a tendency to sit on your anger. Tonight: You cannot say “no” to a friend, nor do you want to.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ Relate to a loved one directly. A child seems withdrawn, and you might be concerned. Use your people skills to help draw this person out; he or she will be very grateful to get past this present obstacle. You will be more upbeat than you have been in a while. Tonight: Say “yes.”
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ You could be overwhelmed by a partner who is being overly demanding. You might not like where a boss or someone you need to answer to is coming from. You are likely to witness a volatile situation. Be careful, and try not to get involved. Tonight: Do whatever pleases you.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ You seem ready for a swift change and a free weekend. You use this time for various activities. You might be joined by a friend who enjoys spending time with you. News from someone at a distance could surprise you. Opt for a new experience. Tonight: Dinner for two.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ Zero in on a money problem. You will see that a response is forthcoming. If you are willing to open up, others are likely to share their ideas.
