Today's birthday (Tuesday, July 25, 2017) This year could be momentous if you allow your unique perspective to mix with unstoppable creativity. You will have many special memories of what occurs. You will see financial gains, but you’ll need to resist going overboard with your spending. If you are single, some of you will enjoy remaining single, whereas others will be entranced by potential suitors. If you are attached, the two of you could find yourselves renegotiating certain parts of your relationship. A bond needs to have both partners interacting on an equal level. Virgo knows how to rain on your parade.
Aries (March 21-April 19) ★★★★ You are full of interesting ideas. You could become somewhat fixated on turning an idea into reality. You’ll want certain actions done exactly as you think they should be. Feeling this way, perhaps it would be best for you to take the lead. Tonight: Know when to call it quits.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) ★★★★ You could be overthinking an issue and making a mountain out of a molehill. Once you let go of this matter, you will find that your ingenuity kicks in. Decide to drop the word “problem” from your vocabulary. Ask a friend for feedback, if need be. Tonight: Kick up your heels.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) ★★★★ You might be pushed to the forefront, whether it’s at work, at home or while doing something else. You naturally know what to say and when. Try to avoid becoming fussy and critical in the afternoon. Ask yourself what is going on with you. Tonight: Head home.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ You might be weighing the pros and cons of a change. Determine what it will bring to your life as well as what it is likely to cost. Know that you do not need to make a decision just yet. Discuss this topic with someone you consider a friend. Tonight: Return calls first.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★★ The unexpected plays a strong role in your morning. You know how to work with spontaneity. Matters involving travel could come to the forefront. Your ability to get past a problem emerges. Avoid being judgmental about a money matter. Tonight: Think before acting.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★ You might want to socialize and network in the afternoon, but use the morning just for you. Whatever you do to relax will help you feel better in a substantial way. Try to stop being so critical of yourself, and you’ll be much happier as a result. Tonight: Do your own thing.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ Your powers of persuasion and your innate charm soar in the morning. A rude comment or a moment of negativity could color your afternoon. Resist the desire to cocoon at home. This behavior will not serve you, unless you have a lot of research to do. Tonight: Get plenty of rest.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Use the morning to impress someone who seems to have doubts about you. Mix in some humility with your knowledge and capabilities. A meeting in the evening points to success and a happy situation. You’ll see the positive results of your efforts. Tonight: Join a friend for dinner.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★★ Your desire to know more comes through. Whether you expose yourself to a different culture through a foreigner or you choose to sign up for a workshop, you’ll be satisfied with the outcome. Ask a friend to join you on a fun adventure. Tonight: Burn the midnight oil.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★★ A get-together with a close friend or loved one might take up most of the morning. Decide to take a new approach to an existing problem. Imagine what it would be like to free yourself of this issue, then use your ingenuity to make it happen. Tonight: Brainstorm away.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ You could be feeling as if you’d prefer to be more social. You’ll have to jump on an exciting opportunity fast, as it is unlikely to reappear. A close one-onone conversation might ensue, and you’ll be surprised by what you hear. Tonight: Enjoy some good company.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ Focus on getting as much done as possible. You will want to clear up some extra time ASAP; the reason will become apparent as soon as this afternoon. Make a call later in the day to someone you don’t often see, and make plans to visit him or her soon. Tonight: Be available. The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5 Dynamic; 4 Positive; 3 Average; 2 So-so; 1 Difficult.
