IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year your words carry a lot of weight and meaning. Others lean in to listen. Your excellent communication also could play into your financial well-being. If you are single, you will meet many people whom you are emotionally drawn to. You will be more fortunate in finding romance closer to summer. If you are attached, the two of you need to share your vulnerabilities with each other more often.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You have the right approach but the wrong plan of action. Be as direct as possible when dealing with controversy. Explain why you have made your decision. Listen to what is being shared. The path you choose to follow could surprise others. Tonight: Dinner at a favorite spot.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
One-on-one interactions remain favored. You could get certain matters straightened out that you had nearly given up hope of resolving. Listen, and share more of yourself. Avoid getting angry if your points are not well-received. Tonight: Look at a problem from all sides.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You have carried a key responsibility as long as you have needed to. If others feel as if they have a better approach, let them take over. Strong feelings could run rampant. Tonight: Share the issue at hand with a trusted pal.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Touch base with a partner or loved one. This person has the same values as you, but he or she takes a very different approach. You might not have all the right answers, but perhaps you don’t even care. You seem to be more feisty than usual. Tonight: Avoid a squabble, if possible.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You have a lot to accomplish. The more creative your approach, the better the outcome. You finally gain clarity about a certain issue that has been difficult to understand. Use caution with your finances. Tonight: Take a midweek break!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You could be looking for a different answer or a new approach to a recurring problem. Your vision of what is necessary might not be completely grounded. Tap into your imagination for help, but first test out your ideas on others. Tonight: Act as though it were the weekend.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You are likely to express yourself with a great deal of composure. Look within yourself and figure out what it is that you really desire. There could be an internal conflict going on that you could be projecting outward. Tonight: home.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Handle a financial situation with care. If one does not have the innate intelligence to work through hassles, one cannot succeed. Allow your sixth sense to kick in; you might like what you see. Be more forthright and direct. Tonight: Return a call.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You have more going for you than you realize. You might want to change some of the financial and emotional implications of an issue that is swirling around you. Be careful about your approach if you want to greet success. Tonight: In the whirlwind of the moment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your sense of dignity will carry you through a problem, but it does not necessarily guarantee success. Your frustration level remains high when dealing with others. You can and will clear up many of the issues you have been encountering as of late. Tonight: Out late.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You are in a very fulfilling phase, where change seems to happen when you visualize it. Events might not always play out as you think they should, but nevertheless, they do work out. Tonight: Do not allow anger to take over.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Zero in on your desires. Friendship could play a key role in your decision-making process. Honor fast changes, and make sure that you proceed with greater clarity and understanding. Tonight: Burn the midnight oil.
