The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Others take the lead even if you would prefer to take charge. You could stun others with your reaction. You are not sure which way to go or what feels right as opposed to what your office structure dictates. Get feedback. Tonight: Defer to a loved one — as if you have a choice!


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You could be out of sync with a co-worker, though you will gain a great deal of insight from this experience. You will have to let go of a need to control others in order to jump through some of the hoops of a difficult situation. Tonight: Let someone else make the first move.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Your imagination could come up with some uncomfortable scenarios if you let it run wild. A friend only contributes to those feelings. A new beginning in a relationship becomes possible, and for some of you, a new relationship could be on the horizon. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Your playfulness emerges after a sudden development that could at first throw you off your game. You will get past the issue once you encourage a discussion. You are about to experience an unusual yet fulfilling situation develop in your daily life. Tonight: All smiles.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You cannot be distracted for long, as surprises keep popping up around you. You have to be grounded in order to handle everything that you must. The unexpected takes a toll on you, but you can handle it. You might decide to make a resolution to change how you deal with problems. Tonight: At a favorite spot.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be aware of the financial implications of a situation. Make sure you understand what is coming forward in the near future. A partner could shake up the status quo with his or her ideas and actions, especially involving spending and saving. Make sure you are on the same page. Tonight: Flow with the moment.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Understand what is happening around you more clearly. You might decide that you can’t do much more than you already have. With the help of a partner, you’ll gain an important insight. What a sense of relief! Tonight: Make it your pleasure to respond to a loved one’s request.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The daylight hours could be unnerving, as you cannot seem to get your sea legs. You keep getting tossed a new issue or a surprise. You’ll handle what you must, probably wishing you could create a little more stability. Once the Moon enters your sign, a mellowness takes over — at least for you. Tonight: Zero in on what you want.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A friendship plays a strong role in your choices. Remember that ultimately it is your choice. You might have mixed feelings as you observe what is happening around you. Later on, you might stop and reflect on how you might change a pattern here. Tonight: Make it an early night.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The unexpected continues to shake up the status quo. You might want to take a firm stand against such upheaval. Be honest with yourself — you have very little control over others. Emphasize what is important to you in an important meeting or get-together. Tonight: Where the action is.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Pressure builds with sudden calls, messages and perhaps a quickly scheduled meeting. You have the intention of taking the lead with an important project. Others might challenge or disagree with you, but ultimately their tune will change. Tonight: Count on a late dinner.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Detach and take a complete view of what is going on around you. At the same time, give some thought to the players and why they have chosen the path they have chosen. A caring, open attitude draws others toward you rather than sticking to their position. Tonight: Consider starting the weekend now!
