For those with birthdays today:
Make the most of opportunities that seem to come from left field. If you are single romance could change your life's direction later this year. If you are attached, work with a loved one. GEMINI helps you at work.
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)
***** Keep talking about what it is that you want. Others will hear, eventually. Another might be a bit defiant or might feel challenged to do something his way. When gathering with friends, the unexpected happens. Tonight: Out and about.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
*** Review your budget, with an eye to an even more financially secure year. Start planning for what you want. Partners just don't agree with you easily, so don't push them. Tonight: Togetherness counts.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
**** Keep communication flourishing, even if you hit a difficult point or a snafu. Avoid a power play with direct communication. Seek out answers. You might not be able to change another's mind, but you find a surprising solution. Tonight: Spontaneity works.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
** Take a day off and do only what you want to do. Recognize that you can only do so much. Think about your limits here before you make any plans. A partner might be nervous. Tonight: Do for yourself.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
***** A child or loved one could be cantankerous. You can try anything you want; it is unlikely to make a difference. Respond to a partner's sudden decision with equal zest. You're best among friends. Tonight: Wherever a good time can be had.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
**** Someone you care a lot about has strong views. You can't change this person, but you can acknowledge him in a more positive light. Toss plans to the wind, if that is what you want to do. Tonight: Start thinking about tomorrow.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
**** Make calls and reach out for someone at a distance. You enjoy yourself wherever you are. Examine your long-term objectives with a friend who knows you well. Join in on childish spontaneity. Tonight: Take in a movie.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
***** Another makes overtures, and you wonder how you can say no. You can't. Enjoy this person for what he or she offers. Someone makes a big difference in your life. Do not put yourself in a financial bind. Tonight: A snuggly night.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
**** Others seek you out. You certainly are encouraged to get past a mood or problem. You might not exactly be sure about what is going on with others. Don't worry. Let go of a need to control. Tonight: Say yes to a loved one.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
*** Take your time getting a project done. Listen to your inner voice with others. Could you be causing yourself problems where you don't need to? Let go of fears and be more open to others. Tonight: Do basic chores.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
**** Keep reaching out for another. You could question what you need to do for a difficult loved one. Suppressing your needs might occasionally be OK. Avoid making this behavior a long-term pattern. Tonight: Enjoy yourself.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
*** Home continues to be a source of solace and joy. You might not be changing another's direction, but you do make a good choice for the family. You have an unexpected insight about a family member. Tonight: Visit with a roommate.
