IF TO­DAY IS YOUR BIRTH­DAY: This year, you of­ten find yourself in a power play and un­sure of what you want. The best way to han­dle this type of sit­u­a­tion is not to play or react. If sin­gle, you might go through sev­eral dif­fer­ent peo­ple this year. You're about to meet Mr. or Ms. Right. Don't worry! If at­tached, you love shar­ing time to­gether, dis­cussing far-out ideas. You of­ten can be found just the two of you, shar­ing and laugh­ing. ARIES knows how to pro­voke you into lis­ten­ing to or work­ing with them. You know how to say no.


Though you of­ten can be found on the go, some­times you get hooked within a sit­u­a­tion. You might be in­volved in a power play, fi­nally rec­og­niz­ing the dy­nam­ics to­day. Un­less you want a full-scale battle, let it go. Tonight: What­ever ap­peals.


You may feel the need to pull back some to han­dle a prob­lem. Right now you must look at what is ail­ing you. What do you need to change? Give some thought to the is­sue at present rather than open­ing up dis­cus­sions. Tonight: Get as much sleep as you can.


Zero in on your pri­or­i­ties. You might not be as sure as you might like when dealing with an is­sue around a friend or fam­ily mem­ber. You might pre­fer to avoid the chat in ques­tion. Just know that sooner or later, the con­ver­sa­tion will be nec­es­sary. Tonight: Among the crowds.


You have ex­traor­di­nary ap­peal right now. A per­son who you of­ten see dur­ing the day lets you know that he or she would like to get to know you bet­ter. De­cide whether you're in­ter­ested and how to han­dle this sit­u­a­tion. Tonight: Where the fun is!

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)

If you ex­pe­ri­ence a last-minute snafu in­volv­ing a cre­ative idea or project, de­tach. You might be dis­ap­pointed, but a res­o­lu­tion be­comes pos­si­ble if you stay cool. Look at the big picture and con­sider how the other party feels. Tonight: Where you can let your mind drift.

A one-on-one con­ver­sa­tion could lead you down a path dif­fer­ent from the one you've cho­sen. The talk was au­then­tic and re­al­is­tic, so don't shrug off the al­ter­na­tive. Tonight: In­vite a close part­ner or friend for din­ner.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)

Oth­ers could be un­usu­ally de­mand­ing. Let them take the lead and cre­ate what they in­sist upon hav­ing. You could want to put some sub­stan­tial dis­tance be­tween them and you. Tonight: Your in­stincts are right on.

SCOR­PIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)

You could ac­com­plish the lion's share of work if you re­sist temp­ta­tion and an in­vi­ta­tion. Ul­ti­mately, the de­ci­sion is yours, but con­sider the long-term im­pli­ca­tions as well. You'll know which way to go. Tonight: Walk home if you can.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Your play­ful­ness and ease with risk sets you apart from most peo­ple. You clearly have sev­eral ad­mir­ers who would like to have as easy­go­ing a personalit­y as you have. Open up a con­ver­sa­tion about risk. Tonight: Off living it up.

CAPRI­CORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Fundamenta­ls count right now. You un­der­stand, but many oth­ers don't. You need a strong sense of se­cu­rity, which stems in part from a solid re­la­tion­ship. You might feel con­flicted at the mo­ment. Tonight: Happy at home.


You are likely to read into a con­ver­sa­tion and an­other per­son's reaction and see things that don't ac­tu­ally ex­ist. Make an ef­fort to in­ter­act with oth­ers, and don't take them for granted. You'll be­come far more ap­pre­ci­ated as a re­sult. Tonight: Stay in the neigh­bour­hood.


Be aware of costs. Count your change. Bal­ance your cheque­book. A dis­cus­sion around money and work will be quite im­por­tant. En­sure that you have an ad­e­quate sense of what you want, of­fer and will ac­cept. Tonight: Call some­one you've been want­ing to hear from.
