Your creativity proves to be your best friend this year, as you find answers to tough problems. If you are single, a relationship will dawn with spring. If you're attached, discussions often revolve around money and children.
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)
- ** Aggravation could be the byproduct of pushing to have certain matters fall in your court. Unexpected developments occur, reminding you that you are not in control. Tonight: Detach. Escape into a preferred pastime.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
- ** You will pull your hair out if you continue to insist on having things as you like. Knowing that you don't have control, allow others to run with the ball. Tonight: Fulfill a loved one's request.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
- * You might feel as if you are literally in the trenches as you attempt to get some key work done. Not everyone sees situations with the same perspective as you. Allow others time. Tonight: Respond to another's overture.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
- *** Pull out that creative touch, especially when dealing with demanding loved ones. An associate throws a boomerang in your path. Jump! Tonight: Off to the gym.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
- * Your temper and ire could easily be aroused by present events. You will be better off if you play your cards close to your chest. Tonight: Breathe a sigh of relief, as the emotional winds change.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- ** No matter what you do or say, you engender conflict, even when trying to pacify others. A domestic situation might be particularly volatile. Tonight: Mosey on home.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
- ** Recognize when you hit a dead end. As much as you explore your options left and right, you won't find an out or a solution right now. You easily could be hurt by what another suggests or says. Tonight: Swap war stories with your friends.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
- ** Make the best out of a difficult situation. Use your magnetic personality to take some of the pressure off. Tonight: Pay your bills.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
- * Do nothing. Minimize your plans if possible, as a disruptive influence runs through your life. A boss shares ideas that you feel very uncomfortable with. Tonight: Do something just for yourself!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
- ** Keep your long-term goals in mind when making key decisions. Others might not choose to do something that is very important, thus frustrating you. Do not swallow your anger, but express your emotions in a meaningful manner. Tonight: Reflect while taking a walk.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
- * What might be important easily could backfire. A friendship could be in conflict with a financial matter. Tonight: Find your pals.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
- *** Your ability to visualize works for you. Communicating your ideas right now could become a problem. A boss or higher-up could be difficult at best until later. Tonight: Work late.
