For Wednesday, April 18
Those with birthdays today: You don't always have to be a strong force in everything. Learn to step back and take your time. Your inner sense tells you a lot about what you need to do. This year, you will need more downtime than in previous years to restore your energy. Network more. If you are single, a relationship that develops this summer surprises you. Learn to relax with this person while you become familiar with one another. If attached, plan on times when it's just the two of you, but allow for solo time, too. PISCES understands you.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
***** Don't be such a serious Bull. Lighten up and focus on the positives rather than on the negatives. Emphasize friends. Tonight: Get together with your friends.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
**** Take charge now. You are the centerpiece that draws others together. Surround yourself with people who spout bright ideas and help you break through any resistance. Tonight: Work late.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
**** Take the initiative and find answers. Avoid gossip; you want facts. You can be hard on a friend who has disappointed you. Lighten up. Tonight: A good movie.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
**** You might have difficulty understanding what a key associate or loved one is saying. Could you be resisting the ultimate message? Tonight: Just don't be alone!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
**** If you haven't broken past the barrier of an uptight partner, the time for action has arrived. Understand how much you offer. Draw another's opinions. Your efforts count. Tonight: Do something healthy!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
**** Revise your thinking about work. Can you separate work from your personal life? Work on making this possible. Stage the grand finale to a problem. Don't you think it is time? Tonight: Use your remarkable ingenuity.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
*** Listen to family. Listen to a roommate. Work continues to be demanding. Think about putting the kibosh on this pattern ASAP. Tonight: Add more flirtation to your relationship and life.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
**** Deal with a difficult situation involving a child, creative project or relationship. You need to clear the air now -- for yourself. Tonight: Stop by the bookstore.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
**** Deal with finances. A family member might be putting an unusual drain on you. Perhaps you need to explain how you are feeling. Tonight: Treat yourself to something special.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
**** Your smile helps work through a problem. Facts being facts, you are judging yourself a bit harshly. Don't be so critical. Unusual insights can help you with money. Tonight: Use your innate charms.
