IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you relate more intensely to certain individuals in your life. Your temper could be unusually explosive, as you barely get enough feedback or time to process your feelings. If you are single, many people fear that they don’t have the stamina necessary to relate to you.
When the right person comes along, you’ll want to slow down and get to know him or her better. If you are attached, the two of you strengthen your bond by learning to enjoy each other’s social interests more. Make sure you schedule enough time to be alone together, too. VIRGO often surprises you with his or her penchant for fun.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
