IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year your focus is on a partnership, especially if you are attached. Sometimes you might feel as if you give too much of yourself, which could cause you to become resentful. If you are single, you could form several different bonds. Take your time getting to know these potential suitors until you find one that feels comfortable. If you are attached, confusion surrounds communication. Try to be clearer. Close relating will remain important, no matter what area of your life it pertains to. VIRGO can be touchy or critical.
How you deal with criticism will determine the success of a venture or relationship. Incorporating someone else’s idea into your own can only make the concept stronger. Tonight: It is as if you are speaking Chinese, and others are speaking French. Enjoy the chaos!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Taking a stand is natural to you, and you do not back down easily. Someone could challenge your ideas and how you are handling a project. You might decide to disenfranchise this person, or perhaps you’ll choose to listen with amusement. Tonight: Brainstorm with a buddy.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
If a response doesn’t fit or seems off, push to get a better answer. It exists — you just need to find it. Others will feel your lack of presence as you are distracted by this matter. Find some middle ground between your concerns and others’ demands. Tonight: Head home.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You tend to indulge others. As a result, you have a lot of friends. You sometimes wonder if you are buying or enabling friendships. The solution is easy: simply do less. Otherwise, you might feel resentful. News comes in a chaotic fashion. Tonight: Ask a lot of questions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
A loved one can be flamboyant and unusually demanding. The issue is not this person, but rather your response to his or her behaviour. If you do not give this individual what he or she wants, this behaviour might change. Confusion plagues your finances. Tonight: With friends.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You might be feeling less than great. You have been ignoring an issue that has been making you unusually angry. If you clear up your anger in an effective manner, you will feel better. Express your feelings in a way others can hear. Tonight: The world is your oyster.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Emphasize the positives in a disagreeable, combustible situation. Tap into your resourcefulness, and you will find a path that most parties will agree on. Confusion surrounds meetings and plans. Confirm your appointments. Tonight: Take much-needed personal time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Stay on top of your work, yet be sure to take all phone calls. There could be a change in plans, and an impending difficult situation might need to be acknowledged. Schedule meetings and run errands later in the afternoon. Tonight: Make the most of the moment.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You move through your day with ease, though you might be triggered by a conversation. Put those hot feelings away until there is time to process and discuss them. Avoid a discussion. In the afternoon, you could find pressure building. Tonight: To the wee hours.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
A partner has a lot to share, but the timing could be off. Still, rather than turn away and risk him or her closing down for a sustained period, you might want to make time. Someone in your immediate circle provides many different ideas. Tonight: Use your imagination.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You have your hands full, and your temper flares. You tend to juggle various different ideas, people and situations. Be sensitive to a financial involvement with a key person. You could find a thread of confusion in this situation. Tonight: Listen to a friend’s news.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Work through your irritation rather than bottle it up. You also might need to talk to the other party involved. This person might understand, but it is good to get this weight off your chest. Confusion signals a need to slow down and digest this information. Tonight: Chat over dinner.
