TAURUS means well but can get a little too nosey. Aries (March 21-April 19): ★★★★ Deal with an overdue hassle even if doing so means that you cannot start your weekend as early as you’d like. Due to your attentiveness, you’ll probably gain during the next day in a most unexpected manner. Tonight: Make it your treat.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): ★★★★★ A call could drag you down. You have a lot to consider, but the situation might not be as negative as you think it is. Remain direct throughout your dealings with others. Someone close to you could find you exciting but unpredictable. Tonight: Just be you.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): ★★★ Say little; absorb more information. People might not be aware that they’re spilling the beans, especially if you react in a nonchalant manner. You might want to slow down and consider all that you’ve heard. Tonight: Go for mystery. Vanish.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): ★★★★ You could be overwhelmed by all that you need to do. Stay upbeat and positive when dealing with changing plans and an unpredictable friend. A close loved one might hold a very different opinion about an important person in your life. Tonight: Zero in on what you want.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): ★★★★ You might notice that others are looking at you. A boss might approve of the way that you handle a problem. A loved one simply enjoys watching you. Know that you’re onstage. Be discreet about a problem. The less others know, the better. Tonight: TGIF.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): ★★★★★ Take off as soon as you can. First, you’ll need to make and complete an important call that could define some of your weekend plans.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): ★★★★★ Defer to another person. You know what you want, and you know when you’ve pushed too far. You’d be well-advised to let another person take the lead. You could be happier with the end results as well. Tonight: Go for the moment.
