(March 21-April 19)

The un­ex­pected oc­curs with in­creased fre­quency. Putting a sit­u­a­tion back to­gether af­ter strong cross­cur­rents have shaken up the sta­tus quo will take tal­ent as well as a lot of sen­si­tiv­ity on your part. Know that the out­come will be well worth it. Tonight: Have an im­por­tant talk.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You will not take much for granted, es­pe­cially af­ter to­day. You see many tremors stem­ming from a cer­tain is­sue. You likely will want to con­tinue down the same path, but at what cost? Push your­self and do some se­ri­ous think­ing. Tonight: Go along with some­one else’s sug­ges­tion.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You can­not deny your joy­ous spirit. If you give your­self per­mis­sion, you might be able to let go and have a great time. It would be a good idea to take to­day off or at least take a half-day. If you let go, you will be much more ex­pres­sive and con­tent. Tonight: Off to the gym.

50 “Eureka!”

Can­cer (June 21-July 22) Re­main more sen­si­tive to the pos­si­bil­i­ties that sur­round you. If you kick back, you could find that you are a lot hap­pier than you thought pos­si­ble. Do some fast think­ing. Un­der­stand what is mo­ti­vat­ing a child or loved one. Tonight: So what if you have to work to­mor­row?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Re­cent events around your com­mu­nity or work could be shak­ing you up. Note why you are be­com­ing up­set. On some level, you might need to look at the mat­ter dif­fer­ently and ac­cept it. At that point, the sit­u­a­tion could be­come smoother. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Be aware of the present cost of say­ing “yes.” You could be over­whelmed by cer­tain pos­si­bil­i­ties and not know the best way to pro­ceed. If that’s the case, wait to take ac­tion. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion that you de­sire will not hap­pen un­til later. Tonight: Hang out with a friend.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Oth­ers might be stressed out; how­ever, you also could be deal­ing with a prob­lem. Note the dif­fer­ent styles of han­dling the is­sues in­volved. Pat your­self on the back for tak­ing the serene, calm ap­proach; for the most part, it works bet­ter. Tonight: Do some shop­ping on the way home.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You could feel out of sorts dur­ing most of the day. A loved one’s un­pre­dictabil­ity could be get­ting the best of you. Open up to new pos­si­bil­i­ties. At the same time, rec­og­nize that you can­not change any­one. Peo­ple are who they are, and that’s that. Tonight: All smiles — fi­nally.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Use the day­light hours to the max. Keep smil­ing, and stay cen­tered on your ob­jec­tives. When you’re on a roll, you shouldn’t stop. Clear out as much as pos­si­ble. Later in the day, your en­ergy could dwin­dle. Note when this hap­pens and head home. Tonight: Not to be found.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Take your bows while you can. It’s not ev­ery day that oth­ers let you know how much they value you. Un­der­stand what it takes to open up a con­ver­sa­tion with some­one; how­ever, al­low the other party to think that he or she is in charge. Tonight: Join friends while you can.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You have the abil­ity to de­tach from a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion and come through with a great so­lu­tion, if it is needed. Your per­spec­tive opens up much freer ex­changes and more un­der­stand­ing. Tonight: Among the crowds.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) One-on-one re­lat­ing makes what­ever you’re do­ing flow more eas­ily. In­for­ma­tion that some­one shares could sur­prise you. Say lit­tle and lis­ten more. In or­der to ac­com­plish what you de­sire, you might need to de­tach. Tonight: Choose a new type of ex­pe­ri­ence.
