IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: This year you develop a new hobby or interest. Though you might have flirted with the idea of trying this pastime before, it wasn’t until recently that you decided to become informed on the subject. With this mental expansion come new friends of a different mindset. Their energy invigorates your life. If you are single, you have a unique opportunity to enrich your inner circle and meet someone very different. You actually might decide to change “types.” If you are attached, as a couple, you will socialize more and share more with each other. PISCES knows how to draw you out, even if you are reluctant.
Your responses could be instinctual. Embrace them, and they will guide you through a sticky situation. You might not be as confident as usual. Do not undermine the process you are going through, even if you are uncomfortable. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Zero in on the possibilities that surround a friendship. Though you could be distracted, do not miss a scheduled meeting. It is important for you to focus right now. Detachment will help you see the bigger picture. Get some much-needed feedback. Tonight: Not alone.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Deal with people directly. As uncomfortable as you might be, you’ll be able to visualize a new situation that could be better for you. Make it OK to experience some risk-taking. Everyone gets cold feet, but it’s important to take a leap of faith. Tonight: A chat with a trusted friend.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Your ability to see past the obvious usually kicks in when that skill is needed. Though others still might act dominant, you’ll feel as if their suggestions or plans are on target. Detach, and you’ll better understand your resistance. Tonight: Try something different.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You will be in sync with a key person in your life. You might have been wondering which way to go in a very intense matter. After a discussion, your questions will dissolve, revealing what is possible. Take action when you feel sure of yourself. Tonight: Be with a special person.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Listen to news more openly. You might have mixed feelings about a situation. Others think they are open, too. Challenging them will not help; instead, try opening them up through conversations. Do nothing halfway. Listen to your instincts. Tonight: Let the fun begin.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Pace yourself, as you have a lot of ground to cover. On some level, the thoughts running through your mind might distract you from the here and now. You could be a little off-kilter and give an odd response. Be clear about your long-term goals. Tonight: To the wee hours.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might want to handle a situation in a more creative way. You still need to keep those involved in the loop. The importance of communication cannot be underestimated. In a sense, you are opening up their thinking, too. Tonight: Time for some healthy play or exercise.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
An investment opportunity comes forward, and you might feel as if you have no choice but to take a risk. The issue revolves around a personal and/or a real-estate matter. Others might want to discuss the situation, but you could be unusually closed off. Tonight: Head home.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You might want to think through an offer that easily could be too good to be true. Share your thoughts with a trusted adviser and friend. By the time you finish talking, you will know which way to go. Check out a potential problem area in your house. Tonight: Hang with a friend.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You could be overtired and withdrawn. Your mind has been working overtime regarding a financial matter. Sort through the risks, if there are any, and make a choice accordingly. You might need some personal time, if you can take it. Tonight: Take a hard look at your budget.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
A friend or loved one whispers information in your ear. This person feels that these facts are important for you to know. Even if you do not agree, express your appreciation. A meeting could be more important to your life direction than you realize. Tonight: Make yourself happy.
