IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you have a stronger sense of self than you have had in years. You will be more confident, which will delight many people around you. If you are single, you could have issues deciding how close you want to get to someone. As a result, you could go through several relationships until you meet someone with whom you feel totally comfortable. If you are attached, the two of you have an intense bond. You share many ideas together, yet both of you need space at times; learn to honor that need. GEMINI can challenge you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Your strong communication skills emerge. It seems as if everyone you know has a story they want to share with you. Your instincts tell you how to handle key people in your life. For just one day, try following your intuition to see what happens. Tonight: Visit with a neighbor.
This Week: You could feel as if you need to cater to someone else.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You are a sign that can become quite possessive. Ask yourself how you would feel if someone were to try to control you. Would you feel cared for, or would you feel suffocated? In any case, you will have the opportunity to choose what you want to do. Tonight: Out late.
This Week: Don’t feel as if you must restrain yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
The world is your oyster. Others seem only too happy to be around you — in fact, they will want to share more of their lives with you. Your feedback carries a lot of weight. An older friend or relative gives you a spiritual lecture. Tonight: So what if it is Monday tomorrow?
This Week: Curb wild spending, if possible.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Your emotions always soar when there is a Full Moon. Sometime you get down on yourself; other times, your spirit mounts. This particular Full Moon will emphasize secrets and matters you keep under wraps. Know that this, too, shall pass. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
This Week: Be aware of a tendency to surprise others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
A friend plays a big role in your plans. A loved one might become jealous if you don’t give him or her enough attention. Listen to what this person has to say about an important financial matter. You will gain understanding as a result. Tonight: You are the life of the party!
This Week: You might not feel up to snuff until Wednesday.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Defer to someone who seems more actively involved in a matter that is affecting others. The issue might be deciding who wants to take the lead with a social issue. You are likely to enjoy taking some time off from being of service to others. Tonight: A must appearance.
This Week: Use Monday and Tuesday to the max.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Keep reaching out to a loved one at a distance. Consider making calls to this person more of a habit. The Full Moon adds unusual pressure to be available to others, even if they are not in the same city as you. Tonight: Sort through all the gossip and news you have heard lately.
This Week: The spotlight is on you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might feel pushed financially or a partner could make demands of your time. Consider what you need to do, and figure out how to proceed accordingly. Your sixth sense comes through for you. Note an aura of confusion around you. Tonight: Listen to a loved one.
This Week: Step back and detach.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Today’s Full Moon points to relationships and boundaries that you need to establish. You have a strong need for space, whereas someone close to you might exhibit the need to have you closer. Working on this issue will be important in the long run. Tonight: Go with a suggestion.
This Week: Let someone else run with the ball.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
If you can lie low right now, do. You might be exhausted by what is happening around you. Someone close to you makes a strong demand. Listen to your inner voice before responding. You alone know how much more flexibility you have. Tonight: Get a head start on tomorrow.
This Week: Curb a tendency to be hard on others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You have a playfulness about you that attracts others, especially if they are in touch with their inner child. You have the ability to let go and not worry about judgments. Use caution with your funds. Count your change carefully. Tonight: Be the livewire we all know you can be.
This Week: Plunge into work Monday and Tuesday.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Your sixth sense helps you glide right through the day. Pressure might be coming from a family member. You also could be concerned about a work-related matter. Share your concerns more openly, and you’ll get strong feedback. Tonight: If you can, opt for an early bedtime.
This Week: Do not allow anyone to question your creativity.
