For Friday, March 9
Those with birthdays today: You might need to cover more ground this year than you usually do. The good news is that you have the energy and ability to communicate what is going on. You will need to answer and question what you thought was done. Creativity and the ability to see beyond the norm help you know which direction is best. Others often seek you out for advice. If you are single, you will tend toward a long-term commitment. As a result, your relationships develop a very serious tone. What might be important, if attached, is to study the bigger picture. Learn to be more empathetic. SCORPIO pushes you to be more instinctual and to shoot from the hip.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
¢¢¢ Tension can be overwhelming, but you can change what is going on. Very little could be significant except knowing when to back down and go in a new direction. Let others gripe. Tonight: Togetherness.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
¢¢¢¢ You might be better off pulling back and thinking rather than acting up. Sometimes fatigue dominates to an extent that you don't realize. Tonight: Step back. Stay away from a tumbling house of cards.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
¢¢ You might not be able to continue to push at the level that you are. Everyone is capable of only so much energy. If you can, walk away from a demanding situation. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
¢¢¢ Creativity and resourcefulness add to your ability to solve problems. Close to the end of the day, you might feel as if you finally make it through a problem to get some answers. Tonight: Let fun in and problems out.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
¢¢¢ Stay anchored while others seem to somersault through tumultuousness. Once you distance yourself from the immediate, you'll see situations differently. Update your opinions. Tonight: New vistas.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
¢¢¢¢ Taking the high road permits different possibilities. You might not like what seems to be heading your way, but you can step aside. A partner or dear friend helps you understand your options. Tonight: Don't get plugged in.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
¢¢¢ You might discover that a possessive streak emerges. You cannot always have it your way. Extremes hit financially, but you can deal with what happens. Listen to a friend or associate. Tonight: Your treat.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
¢¢¢¢ You might trip up when you thought you were on an easy, clear path. Visualize more of what you need from those around you. Make a point of handling a personal matter later in the day. Tonight: Try being home.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
¢¢ Some days it's better to play ostrich. You might attempt this approach. You find that others are a bit touchy. Words are misread and your vision changes. Tonight: Follow the music.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
¢¢¢¢ Though you are sure of yourself, you could discover not everyone is working from the same premise. Think before leaping. Verify news that heads in your direction. Tonight: Play it low-key.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
¢¢ Do back off if you feel a situation isn't right. You are on target and see people and events with a different perspective. You might want to verify some confusing news. Tonight: With one trusted pal.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
¢¢¢ You need to think in terms of change rather than go with the status quo. You might want to deal with someone a lot differently. Consider options that will take you in a new direction. Tonight: Happy as a cat.
