(March 21-April 19) Look at an is­sue that could have cre­ated fire­works. Oth­ers ap­pre­ci­ate your pas­sion, as long as it is not di­rected at them. A re­ver­sal on your part could shake up the sta­tus quo. Re­mem­ber, for every ac­tion, there is an equal and op­po­site re­ac­tion. Tonight: A long-over­due chat.

Tau­rus (April 20-May 20)

You might be taken aback by ev­ery­thing that is go­ing on around you. Ex­pe­ri­ence your feel­ings rather than act on them; oth­er­wise, you might just be adding fuel to the fire. Once you reach a re­al­iza­tion, a con­ver­sa­tion be­comes far more plau­si­ble. Tonight: Not to be found.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 20) Honor a change in­volv­ing a friend. You can’t take back words you’ve said. Though you could have a strong re­ac­tion, try dis­cussing your feel­ings with­out in­flam­ing a sit­u­a­tion. Work­ing as a group proves far more ef­fec­tive than be­ing in­de­pen­dent. Tonight: Where you want to be.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22)

Take a stand, move for­ward and han­dle a prob­lem. Your sen­si­tiv­ity mixes well with your prac­ti­cal na­ture. To­gether, these as­sets will help you wade through muddy wa­ters and come out sparkling clean. Know that you have what it takes, and trust your­self. Tonight: In the lime­light.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Read be­tween the lines as you walk into a sit­u­a­tion where peo­ple have strong opin­ions. Un­der­stand the un­der­ly­ing is­sue. Help oth­ers see what they have in com­mon, as op­posed to what is dif­fer­ent. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion al­lows greater give-and-take. Tonight: Re­turn calls, then de­cide.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A part­ner could be some­what dif­fi­cult. You might have a strong re­ac­tion as a re­sult. Re­sist go­ing off on a spend­ing spree while in this mood. A dis­cus­sion is nec­es­sary. You un­der­stand the im­por­tance of tim­ing; just wait. Tonight: Spend time with your best friend.

Li­bra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

De­fer to oth­ers. You could have a dif­fi­cult time main­tain­ing your au­thor­ity. Walk in the other di­rec­tion, and refuse to be a part of this sit­u­a­tion. The other par­ties might be floored, but they will look at their ac­tions as a re­sult. Tonight: En­ter­tain sug­ges­tions, but do what you want.

Scor­pio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Lis­ten to what is be­ing of­fered, even if you don’t like what you hear at first. Pace your­self and ac­com­plish what you must be­fore fol­low­ing some­one’s cho­sen path. You have the drive to get a lot done. Stay fo­cused. Tonight: You de­serve to take it easy.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Your play­ful­ness might not be in tune with oth­ers’ moods. Some­one you care about could be on the warpath. This per­son’s ac­tions and words might sur­prise you. Be a good lis­tener, and look for so­lu­tions. Your will­ing­ness to help will come through. Tonight: Time for fun.

Capri­corn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Stay cen­tered, and know where you are com­ing from. Avoid test­ing out ideas on oth­ers right now. An un­ex­pected in­sight tum­bles into your lap and forces you to re­group. Tonight: Have an im­por­tant dis­cus­sion.

Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are com­ing from a good place, but sud­denly you might find your­self feel­ing an­gry. Fo­cus on how you can change the out­come of the sit­u­a­tion. Do not rely on the tried and true. Have an im­por­tant dis­cus­sion when you feel more set­tled. Tonight: Hang out at a fa­vorite haunt.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Be aware of your spend­ing. No mat­ter what you do, you seem to make choices that could cause a prob­lem. Per­haps you need more in­for­ma­tion and feed­back, as you have yet to see a clear path. You will be given time and open­ness. Tonight: Pay your bills first.
