IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you focus on your financial, emotional and creative assets. You might opt to pursue an innate talent and develop another money-making resource. Often, when you get upset, you will note a tendency to overspend. Be careful. If you are single, you do not need to impress a potential significant other. This person needs to know the real you in order for him or her to genuinely care about you. If you are attached, your significant other might wish you would spend less. Make an effort to make this request a possibility. AQUARIUS tends to distract you.
A friendship could be in jeopardy. Stop pushing so hard when you and this person are on different sides of an issue. You need to know when to pull back and agree to disagree. Get together with like-minded friends right now. Tonight: Where the crowds are.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You can deal with a difficult associate for only so long. You need to be able to state when you have had enough. Sometimes, by pulling back and saying little, you can communicate your bottom line effectively. The question is: Does the other party want to hear it? Tonight: Make a call to an older friend.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You can do only so much. Tend to an important matter involving a foreigner or a friend at a distance. A future trip could be in the works. Are you ready to finalize the dates? Go off to the movies and relax. Let your mind wander. Tonight: Your imagination takes the lead.
This Week: All eyes are on you. You will make a decision, act on it and succeed.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Do not feel so pressured to respond instantly to the many people in your life. You could be exhausted by recent events and need some time off. A loved one might try to energize you, which could result in a spat. Tonight: Make peace.
This Week: Start using your imagination in order to add to the quality of your life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You could be overwhelmed by everything that is going on with a partner. You can’t fight this person’s battles, but you can give him or her some supportive feedback. How you handle a personal matter could change as a result of this interaction. Tonight: Out for dinner.
This Week: Work with a partner directly Monday and Tuesday.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Let yourself concede to a key person, whether it’s when you’re making plans or working together to clear up a problem. Though you might not agree with this person’s ideas, you discover that there is validity here. Don’t push yourself so much. Tonight: A relaxing pastime.
This Week: Others dominate. Let them. Now, what would you like to do?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Emphasize having a fun time with a loved one. Don’t be surprised if this person gets giddy with excitement. Consider the fact that you do not let go often. Let your inner child out. Tonight: Avoid competitions.
This Week: Dive into work, and accomplish what you must quickly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might not be as upbeat as you have been in the past. Honour your instincts, and follow through on what you deem important. A partner or roommate might not see eye to eye with you. Avoid an argument and respect your differences. Tonight: Stay close to home.
This Week: Your creativity eases your path, even when you are overloaded with work.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Make a call. If someone is hostile, you might want to back off for now; on the other hand, if you know this person well, he or she might need to be pushed into making plans. Use caution. Tonight: Talk is cheap.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You might decide not to worry so much about a recent expenditure. You simply are in the mood to indulge someone, and that “someone” easily could be you! Remain positive, even if you find yourself in a situation where you have little control. Tonight: Order in or go out for dinner.
This Week: Speak your mind, but be prepared to hear the counter-argument.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You beam under today’s lunar rays. You could be a little too energized for some people, which will make them feel uncomfortable. Slow down enough to tune in to others’ needs. Let your generous and caring spirit emerge. Tonight: Take care of last-minute errands.
This Week: Curb spending until Wednesday. Explore your options then.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You could be a bit overindulgent as of late. You might feel some anger brewing within. If you do, centre yourself and process it. Just because you feel angry at someone, does not mean you must tell this person. It is possible that you have a fragility that he or she has triggered. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
This Week: Remain calm and centred.
