A baby born today has a Sun in Aries and a Moon in Scorpio.

Happy birthday for Monday, April 2, 2018:
This year you often seem resistant to new ideas and experiences. As a result, you tend to say “no” to new adventures. Don’t worry; this phase is only temporary. You will put a lot of time and energy into improving communication. If you are single, you suddenly could meet someone without even trying. The person you meet after summer will hold the strongest potential for an excellent relationship. If you are attached, you and your significant other will try to come to terms with new ideas and styles. You both have strong ideas. SCORPIO emphasizes the importance of comfort on all levels.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You will deal well with others, as long as you can keep the conversations moving. You express intensity, drive and insight when approaching any issue. You could be overly serious at times. You might opt to head in your own direction. Tonight: Be with a favorite person.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You might need to rethink a recent episode involving an important relationship or interaction. A partner seems to be much more serious than you realize. Make an adjustment, if needed. A friend could come up with an inspired idea. Try it; it could work. Tonight: Be nice.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Honor a need to do something very different. Someone you care about either professionally or personally has been on your case. Do your best to compensate, but expect to try a new approach or play the waiting game. Tonight: Think through a hassle until the wee hours.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Give way to another type of thinking. Understand that others might feel more restricted than you do, which prevents them from finding a viable solution. Consider the possibilities. Be positive when dealing with a challenging child or friend. Tonight: Work on your to-do list.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Keep your eye on investments involving real estate. Use care with your finances in general. How you deal with others could change, as you might need them to work with you. Together, you are even more powerful. Tonight: Head home, as you are most relaxed there.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might be inspired by a conversation with an intensely emotional friend. Sometimes you get so frustrated by what you hear that you want to pull back. Right now, your frustration lies in trying to help this person settle in. Tonight: Visit with friends at a favorite hangout.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Be aware of the costs of continuing as you have been. You are a sign that loves the good life. Overindulging seems to come naturally. You will need to muster up as much restraint as possible. Your word choice will be particularly important. Tonight: Meet up with a friend.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You have experienced an easing up of spending. More funds seem available, which only adds to your security. Use this period to work through a hassle that has gone on too long. Do not hesitate to put terms on a difficult and/or changing situation. Tonight: Let it all hang out.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be aware of what is happening with a close loved one who is choosing to stay mum. Initiate a long-overdue conversation with this person. How you approach a personal matter could change as the result of a recent discovery. Tonight: Take some much-needed personal time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

News comes to you through a conversation that could encourage you to head in a certain direction. Use your sixth sense to determine which way would be best to go. Sometimes you need to make yourself a higher priority. Today is a good example. Tonight: Dinner for two.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A higher-up demands a lot of attention and wants to proceed in a certain manner. The smart move is to go along with this person’s ideas. If they work, great; if not, your input will be appreciated. Letting someone have some space can be powerful. Tonight: Accept an offer.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You know what is needed, but you might not know the best way to proceed. Others could test your patience. Allow your creativity to soar. You’ll find answers, even if a group of friends seems a bit somber and uncreative. Tonight: If you could do anything, what would that be?
