Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You might be more in the mood to stay home than go out. Consider moving your work to a home office or making an adjustment in your chosen field. Your productivity is likely to be enhanced by being in a place that you love and feel comfortable. Tonight: Dinner for two.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might not be sure of the best way to make your point so that the majority of people will understand your message. Your smile goes a long way. Encourage others to ask questions and make suggestions. Make people feel as if they are participants. Tonight: Make calls first.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might not realize how tough you can be on others. You have a tendency to speak without thinking first. You are in a process of change. Remember that keeping up with your swift changes could be a problem for many people in your life. Tonight: Burn the midnight oil.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Your smiling ways come forward, allowing greater give-and-take. You see a situation from a new perspective. You see people differently, and you also see where your actions might not be effective. Tonight: Out and about.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) One-on-one relating suits you perfectly. You might not get the results you desire, but you will come to terms with a difficult situation. It might be obvious to you but not to others that a change is needed. Tonight: Make it cozy.
