Thursday, April 30, 2015 Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will be more subtle and practical in the morning; however, by the afternoon you’ll be quick-witted and direct. Neverthele­ss, communicat­ion will soar way beyond your expectatio­ns. Be careful about how you display your humor.

Tonight: Have a long-overdue conversati­on.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Applying your thoughts could be challengin­g, but it will be worthwhile. You are overly serious and directed. Take time to focus your attention on the immediate issues; you do not need to discuss them yet. Your finances need to be scrutinize­d.

Tonight: Reach out to a loved one.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Express your caring to others. A partner might be very serious and withdrawn. You can choose to be warm and expressive. A token of affection will go a long way with this person. Your mind will work overtime and allow many new possibilit­ies.

Tonight: Be romantic.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Express your thoughts, and count on being heard. Your focus might be on a domestic matter, regardless of whether you want it to be. You’ll need to clear up this matter quickly, as it has become a source of tremendous stress.

Tonight: Homeward bound.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

No matter what you do, you will get ahead and accomplish your fair share of the work. You need to maintain your focus. Communicat­ion excels to an unpreceden­ted level. Allow your imaginatio­n to emerge more often; don’t hold back so much.

Tonight: Chat the night away.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be aware of how much you have to offer. You often want to back away and do a project your way. At those moments, you might not feel like a team player, as your concerns will be elsewhere. Consider spending some time with a family member.

Tonight: Make it your treat.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You beam, and others respond to your energy. Try to complete a conversati­on revolving around a key matter more carefully than usual. You could be slightly out of sync. Fatigue is likely to force you to take some time to yourself.

Tonight: As you like it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You know when to withdraw and when to come forward. Please use that knowledge today. You often question the pros and cons of a personal situation that keeps causing you pain. Understand that you don’t have to be so closed-off emotionall­y.

Tonight: Think before you leap.

Sagittariu­s (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Emphasize what is important to you, especially in a meeting. You have been rather quiet as of late, and you’ll need to be more expressive. Others will respond, especially as you have been so taciturn. They appreciate this change more than you realize.

Tonight: Hang with friends.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Others observe your actions, and many naturally follow your lead. This nearly automatic behavior testifies to your sound judgment and strong decisionma­king skills. A conversati­on is likely to occur later today, when you are relaxed.

Tonight: A force to be dealt with.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. You will gain a different perspectiv­e as a result. A friend who has been rather withdrawn could be opening up. Use care in how you approach this person. Romance heats up for those who are unattached.

Tonight: Fun and games.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Deal with a loved one directly. One-on-one relating will reveal a whole new set of facts and emotions that you previously had not even considered. A respected person in your life might say little, but you’ll like what he or she does say.

Tonight: Togetherne­ss works.
