For Monday, April 9
Those with birthdays today: You inspire others to unprecedented levels, and by the same token, others energize you. These exchanges will be instrumental to your success this year. You care about others, so express it in a way that can make a difference. If you are single, though you are friendly and gregarious, others respond best to your attention and focus. If attached, your relationship grows through a greater commitment to something you both want. SCORPIO helps you with bottom-line problems.
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)
**** A gentle haze descends around you. Use this fog to do some daydreaming and brainstorming. Taking strong action, which is your normal reaction, could backfire. Tonight: Light candles and create atmosphere.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
**** You are always practical. What proves to be frustrating is the vagueness surrounding a boss or someone you look up to. Work with the uncertainty. Tonight: Toss the practical down the drain.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
*** Screen your calls, which might be difficult for curious you. Of course, do this only if you want to get something done! You might enjoy the news and gossip. Tonight: Luxuriate in a hot shower.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
**** Your imagination enjoys a day of roaming, though you should attempt to focus on important chores. Your reverie involves developing greater emotional and financial security. Tonight: Be whimsical.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
**** What has been troublesome is that you see someone as you would like to see him. Your instincts guide you. Your natural creativity bubbles forth. Tonight: Let another take the lead.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
*** Precision becomes you, but you might have to settle for vagueness from a doctor or associate. But Virgo needs clean answers! Keep asking questions. Tonight: Do something ultimately relaxing.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
**** You could be so busy weighing the pros and cons that you might never get off your duff. Sometimes your inaction, though frustrating to others, is your strongest suit. Tonight: Take action and enjoy yourself.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
**** Use your penchant for structure at work rather than at home. Others will simply throw obstacles into your path if you insist upon being controlling on the domestic front. Tonight: Anything goes.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
** Do something different: Step back rather than sticking your foot into your mouth. Instead of disseminating news and information, listen more. Much will be revealed. Tonight: Get a good night's sleep.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
**** Your financial aspirations can become possible, but your strong suit today isn't reality. Your moneymaking talents will return soon. Tonight: Get into a game of racquetball or volleyball.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
*** Quirkiness is your middle name, but recently others find you downright elusive! Be more easygoing. Which is more important: being right or having success? Tonight: Work late.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
**** Having a mind and an imagination that wander is one of your strengths, as well as one of your liabilities. Work on testing an idea. Great ideas come with someone's help. Tonight: Relax to music or a movie.
