HAPPY BIRTHDAY | March 5: You often feel tense about family matters and need to spend extra time working through these issues. You have high energy, and you take your career very seriously. If you are single, someone you meet could be very special. If you are attached, the two of you become more content with your domestic life together. You and your sweetie appreciate each other’s company even more. Gemini always has a different idea, plan or solution.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Note your thoughts when you wake up, as your dream life has been very active as of late. People seem to reach out to you early in the day, which makes you smile. Whatever your plans are, they seem to evolve into a social event.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You appreciate quality, which can hurt your wallet if you are not careful. You will have a good time shopping, as long as you use selfdiscipline.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Keep conversations light, but know that a friend could need some advice. Whether you’re visiting with a group of friends or dealing with a difficult situation, your goodwill comes through.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You might be reflecting on a conversation or simply need some personal time. Make sure you set aside special time just for you, or else you will feel pressured. Get into a home project or opt for a nap.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You can’t avoid making a call to someone who is in distress. Plan on meeting this person at a favorite outdoor spot; the two of you have a lot of news to catch up on.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You respond to a request from an older friend or relative. Understand that you might need to do something that involves a work or community event. A partner seems to push you in a certain direction.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Reach out for more information. Detach from the situation at hand, and you’ll gain a new perspective. A family member, or perhaps even your pet, is likely to become demanding if left alone for too long.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Sometimes kicking back and letting others make the first move pleases you. You will gain more understanding about each person and where they are coming from. Your sense of humor emerges when a family member does the unexpected.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Defer to someone else. This person will be very pleased about taking care of the plans and following through on a matter that is important to both of you. Touch base with a relative or friend whom you rarely speak to but think of often.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be careful around a family member who seems overly agitated at the moment, as they easily could misdirect their energy at you. You also can reverse this negativity if you so choose. Consider how you can change your role in a volatile situation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You could be delighted by a loved one’s sentiments. What this person offers you is the space to be as vulnerable as possible. A friend’s anger could emerge from out of the blue. Know that you might not be the cause, and avoid being reactive.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Stay close to home and devote your time to a roommate or family member. Both of you could benefit from stepping away from your very demanding schedules.
