IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you have unusually high energy, and likely will need several different outlets, ranging from exercising to pursuing a creative hobby. You will be able to keep going and not get tired. If you are single, your high level of enthusiasm attracts many wannabe suitors. Several months before your next birthday, a friendship could develop into something more. If you are attached, the two of you often act like new lovers. Your relationship develops an even more playful tone. A GEMINI in the family or within your circle of friends adds to the quality of your relationship.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You might feel burdened by a financial issue in the morning. No matter how disciplined you are, you could find this situation to be a drag. You’ll perk up after lunch, when you seem to veer in a new direction and have better and happier thoughts. Tonight: Speak your mind.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Your high energy gets you going in the morning. You might slow down in the afternoon, as you’ll need to take a hard look at a financial matter. Whether you’re spending or saving, you will take a stand about what you want. Tap into your self-discipline. Tonight: Out with friends.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
State your needs clearly, and ask for more of what you want. Not everyone thinks in the same way you do, so remember to keep that in mind. You generally are rather conventional; however, it seems that you are heading in a new direction. Tonight: Let the fun continue.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You are a child of the Moon, and with each new movement of the Moon, your mood is likely to change. To some, you are a multifaceted individual with variable emotional depths. Do not be surprised if some people run away from you as well. Tonight: Not to be found.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You often feel challenged at this time of year, when the Sun is in your opposite sign, Aquarius. Should you run into an Aquarius, see if you can find a common interest. A close bond is likely to evolve, so long as you are willing to express your feelings. Tonight: Out and about.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’ll want to do some much-needed research in the morning. You also need to detach a bit from an ongoing issue. How you see a situation could change dramatically, to your delight. You gain in visibility from noon on. Tonight: You might have some hard choices to make.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You have a certain style that draws people toward you. That same magnetism seems to lock up one specific person who can’t seem to get away from you. The two of you make an excellent team, whether you’re lying low or taking off on an adventure! Tonight: All smiles.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might be more in touch with people’s feelings than usual, including your own. Look at the morning as being an instrumental time to figure out who a key associate really is. Find out what you have in common, and then go from there. Tonight: Let the party go on and on!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Use the morning to brainstorm creatively with a loved one. You’ll come up with unusual answers for an associate who seeks you out. Clearly, this person needs and wants your help. Accept an invitation to join a friend later in the afternoon. Tonight: Go till the wee hours.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might choose to stay close to home. For some of you, you could opt to work from home, whereas others might decide to call in and get some extra beauty sleep. Touch base with friends in the afternoon in order to confirm some fun and lively plans. Tonight: TGIF!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Speak your mind, and be clear about what you want. Someone close to you will make an attempt to draw you in closer. You might not be quite ready for this dance. Later in the afternoon, you could opt to head home for a much-needed nap. Tonight: Invite friends over.
