For Friday, July 27
Those with birthdays today: Who you are could conflict with family or security needs. Avoid causing yourself unnecessary angst. You might not relish making a life-altering decision. You will need time. A friendship increases in importance. Verify information, and make sure you and your associates are on the same wavelength. If you are single, you might not choose to discuss a budding and important relationship. If you are attached, often you and a partner do not agree, yet you'll have common interests that bring you together. Take time away -- alone and together -- to rebuild the bond. SCORPIO pushes your buttons.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
- ** Others might muck up your plans. You cannot fight city hall. Others seem determined to do things their way. Someone you put on a pedestal could confuse you. Tonight: Accept another's ideas.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
- ** Dig into work, maintaining a high profile. Others test your limits as well as your concentration. Screen calls, prioritize and do everything you can. Tonight: Meander on home.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
- *** Others push your limits. Your imagination carries you long and far when you try to escape money pressure. Avoid a wild risk. Tonight: You manage to make it a great night.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
