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 morning indulgence – which could be as simple as buying a doughnut – sets the tone for the day. You feel cozy, easy and relaxed. Worry less. Live more. Tonight: Your treat.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Read Aries for a hint. Buy a treat or get a new plant this morning. Remember, you work to live, not live to work. The quality of your life might need some investment and/or care. Tonight: Hang with favorite people.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You do and say the right things this morning. Take a hard look at your finances in the next few days. You can change the direction in which you are heading. Tonight: Does your budget suit you?

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Make it OK to not share everything that happens. You will see that someone you care about might be unusually verbal about his or her feelings. You actually might be uncomfortable. Tonight: Live it up.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You act as if there is no tomorrow this morning. “Oops,” you say later in the day, when you pull in and muster up your energy. You have much more on your plate than you anticipated. Tonight: Take some personal time.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might feel as if you have a benefactor, as someone does something so special it stops you dead in your tracks. What begins as a caring gesture could lead to other stupendous events. Tonight: A friendship calls.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

News from a distance puts a smile on your face and a tune on your lips. In this mood, you take charge and make sure events tumble according to your plans. Carefully understand your limits. Tonight: A must show.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Be grateful for another’s gesture. He or she is trying to make your life work and flow. You are able to really help someone feel better. Explore options through calls, an expert or perhaps the Internet. Tonight: Easy does it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Finally, your life runs in a more copacetic or positive vein. Though you might overindulge or get a bit carried away, you still are able to relate on a much deeper level. Tonight: Say yes to a special friend.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A positive attitude flourishes through your work. You have no way of handling a personal matter but to let others have their head. Forcing your ideas and opinions will not work at all. Tonight: Surf through different possibilities.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

* Delightful happenings could surround this morning. A business-as-usual attitude develops later in the day. You might not understand exactly what someone wants. Tonight: Easy does it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Make it OK to approach the morning with a lazy, relaxed attitude. This approach will allow you to be more positive and forthcoming later in the day. Tonight: Just let yourself be happy.
