IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you become a little more hot-tempered than in the past. Inspiration and industry merge, and you become very driven as a result. If you don’t achieve your goals, you could become cold or distant. The odds are you will greet success with your endurance. If you are single, your temperament could push someone away, but it is unlikely that you will be alone. A friendship could be the source of an intense romance. If you are attached, your sweetie could have a strong reaction to your moodiness. Do not be surprised by this person’s response. Indulge him or her. SCORPIO also can be feisty!
Make the most of the moment, and know that you don’t always get special time like this. One-on-one relating takes you down a new path. A serious discussion could dissolve into solemn unresponsiveness. Tonight: A favourite dinner with a favourite person.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Wherever you go, others seek you out. Whether it is at church, at a favourite spot for brunch or even at home makes no difference. Once more, you have an opportunity to choose your company. An older person could be nothing short of grumpy. Tonight: You pick where and what.
This Week: You are feisty. Detach in order to gain a new perspective.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Be more forthright and direct in your dealings. You might opt to get a head start on a project or toss yourself into a winter pastime. Listen to your inner voice about a casual friend, especially if a new-found awkwardness develops. Tonight: Easy does it.
This Week: Heavy moments mark Monday. By Wednesday, you’ll enjoy wherever you are.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You could be asking for more than you can handle. This fact becomes obvious in an argument that starts up out of the blue with a close loved one. A new beginning becomes possible if you can eliminate whatever is putting you on overload. Tonight: Spice up the moment.
This Week: Count on your imagination leading the way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Take charge, and make the best of a situation. You could feel very uncomfortable with a family member’s or roommate’s demands. If you establish boundaries, know that there might be an awkward moment. Make that awkwardness OK. Tonight: Happily nested in.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Understand what is happening with a close relative. Just when you think there is a great deal of trust and ease between you, this person tightens up like a corkscrew. Recognize that this is a natural response for him or her—it has nothing to do with you. Tonight: Catch up on calls.
This Week: You are on target and know what to do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You could see a situation going on that causes concern, especially as to how it will impact your finances. Know that, as hard as it might be, you can and will say no to someone. Disengage from this person financially. Tonight: Treat the family to dinner.
This Week: You are a source of insight, but you might be concerned about stabilizing a situation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might feel as if no one can stop you. Don’t count on being an unimaginable force, as someone might trip you up, whether it is conscious or not. A period of silence could mar a close-to-perfect day. Try to let go, and enjoy the positive aspects. Tonight: As you like it!
This Week: You beam, and others respond positively. Keep to your budget.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Note a tendency to want to be alone, only to become bored and lonely later. If you find that you get testy with others, go off to the movies or read a book. Just head somewhere where conversation might not be necessary. Tonight: Opt for an early bedtime.
This Week: By Wednesday, you will be on a roll.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You might not be comfortable with an associate’s manner. You can’t change this person’s behaviour, but you can distance yourself from his or her attitude. You will communicate without words that you do not want to be around this type of moodiness. Tonight: Where the action is.
This Week: Emphasize what you want as early as possible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might want to take a stand or let others know how you feel. The problem might be someone’s reception. This person could start a quarrel, so choose to let it go. Touch base with an older friend or loved one. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.
This Week: Take charge Monday and aim for what you want.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Take off for a drive with the intention of meeting a friend. You might be late with gift-giving, but finally you’ll be able to eliminate the distance between you. Don’t read too much into someone’s comment. Just sit back and observe. Tonight: Follow the music.
This Week: Look beyond the obvious, and you will find answers.
