IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you’ll want to avoid power plays at all costs. You might generate a lot of plans only to find that many of them will fall apart. Ask yourself why this happens. It could be something that is totally unrelated to your decisions. If you are single, your nurturing style draws many people to you. Do you always want to be a nurturer? Think about that scenario before you decide to relate to a needy individual. If you are attached, dive into a new hobby with your sweetie. You will discover that it brings the two of you closer together. Make more time for each other. CANCER is very moody.
You could have your fair share of hurdles to jump over at the present time, especially when someone suddenly becomes extremely controlling. Don’t play into this person’s games. You might get frustrated when dealing with someone else’s finances. Tonight: Mosey on home.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Go with someone else’s suggestion. You might feel as if you cannot break through an associate’s resistance. Why even try? Detach, and suddenly this person could want to pull you back in. You can’t avoid this situation. Tonight: Discussions over dinner at a favourite spot.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You seem to be acting as if another holiday is around the corner. Be smart. Rein in your impulsiveness and your desire to indulge. Express your feelings instead of spending money to appease them; you’ll be happier in the long run. Tonight: Treat yourself to a favourite dessert.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Your impulsiveness might carry you through a problem, but there is a strong likelihood that you could collide with someone. This person might be a partner who often gets into control games. Take a stand if you need to, but know that it could prolong the issue. Tonight: Charm works.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Take your time right now. You might be on overload and thinking through a lot of issues that all might be connected. Don’t worry, because as you process your feelings, you will become more logical. Avoid a difficult person. Screen your calls. Tonight: Do something just for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Your attention turns to a child or loved one who makes it clear that he or she wants your attention. You might be surprised at the cost of a token of appreciation. A friend you previously counted on might not be reliable or supportive right now. Tonight: Go with your feelings.
