IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you open up to new ideas with ease and little resistance. You often seem confused about where others are coming from. Your grounded and solid nature is likely to help you with all the unstable people you might meet. If you are single, you could meet someone special from out of the blue. This relationship could become very important to you. If you are attached, the two of you have a magical, undefined quality surrounding you. Your lives seem complete with each other. GEMINI knows how to get your attention.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You feel as if you have a new lease on life. Start making your New Year’s resolutions. Be sure to take one of them more seriously and follow through. Use the energy behind the change of the year to be inspired and transform part of your life. Tonight: Visit with a close loved one.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You could be pushing yourself too hard and trying to make the best of a bad situation. Focus on your finances and on getting a stronger sense of what can happen with some self-discipline. A friend might add an element of confusion to the day. Tonight: You feel happy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You might need to use some self-discipline, as everything seems to be happening all at once. You have a tendency to go to extremes. What is going to stop you from having or doing what you want? Remember that there are always ramifications. Tonight: Out on the town.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Try to avoid causing yourself a problem by complaining that you’re not getting the attention you desire. Open up to new possibilities, or study the matter to find a different approach. Don’t feel as if you must make a decision right now. Tonight: Opt for a quiet night.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You might want to break free from others’ expectations, but you will have to do that work on your own. Know that you will feel more complete once you do. Accept an invitation from friends to join them at a fun happening. Tonight: Where your loved ones can be found.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Honor a fast change without making a big deal out of the situation. Your professional standing could be changing in front of your very eyes. You suddenly seem to command more respect. Stay on top of what is necessary. Your responsibilities call. Tonight: A force to behold.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You will want to be acknowledged for a job well done. Listen to what is being requested of you. You might be better served by answering questions that head in your direction. Work with another person to get more of what you desire. Tonight: Only where there is great music.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You could be inspired to make a major change. However, you might feel as if you are tied to a certain situation that isn’t easy to work around. Ask others for help, if necessary. Know that you need to make the best decision for you. Tonight: Out with a favorite person or two.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You could make a decision that stuns people and causes you to rethink a situation more carefully. The changes you are making come from several years of internal accountability. You want to create the best life possible for you and your loved ones. Tonight: Let it all happen.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You could become increasingly more uncomfortable around someone who is not as grounded as you are. You might get into a project or enjoy a light day hanging out with friends. Don’t make anything into a big deal — just go with the flow. Tonight: Paint the town red.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
A situation is likely to change dramatically, but only if you are able to flow with the moment.
Do your best to focus on a child or loved one who needs your attention. You don’t always need to be the energizer responsible for getting things rolling. Tonight: Out late.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
How you work through a problem could change radically as the day goes on. Open up to talks, and be willing to ask for more support from a roommate or close family member. With someone else’s help, your situation will not be so difficult. Tonight: Roll with the moment.
