For Friday, April 20:
This year you discover your inner reclusive side. Others might express their worry or be taken aback. Respond openly to their inquiries, as much as you can. If you are single, you could meet someone who is emotionally unavailable. If you are attached, the two of you will spend a lot of time together and enjoy it.
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)
••• You keep putting your best foot forward, but someone continues to step on it. Be more in touch with how much you offer and give. Tonight: Buy a few items to spruce up your wardrobe.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
•••• Keep an even pace; take a power nap if need be. A New Moon in your sign promises a new beginning. Tonight: All smiles.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
••• You have been thinking through some life decisions, even if you haven’t necessarily wanted to. You might be on the verge of making them a reality. Tonight: You can decide to do nothing.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
•••• Get past someone’s demand, or handle a responsibility. By midafternoon, you’ll tend to be more gregarious. Tonight: Do not allow today’s mood to get the best of you.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
•••• Quickly make calls, reach out for others and get to the basis of an issue without coloring the story by personal bias. Someone might make a demand or request that forces you to take the lead; make it your pleasure. Tonight: A force to be dealt with.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
•••• Deal with calls and people individually. You could be unusually uptight about a situation and allow it to color your day. Tonight: Go with something offbeat.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
••• Try to curb a tendency to self-sabotage. You have been unusually negative or touchy lately. Tonight: Work on being optimistic.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
•••• Your effort to preserve a situation might backfire. You cannot fight change — not emotionally, personally or professionally. Tonight: Join an acquaintance you do not see often.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
•••• Listen to your inner voice. You sense that you might want to get out the door or start the weekend early. Tonight: Let your energy make the call.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
••• Tension builds and causes a problem when you interact with authority figures. Know when to pull back and opt for a less public stance. Tonight: You do not need to go far.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
•••• Keep communication flowing, even if you don’t exactly understand what is happening. In your mind, you sense that someone is holding back. Tonight: Visit with a friend on the way home.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
••• Someone could be asking for what you cannot give. Distance yourself for now. Tonight: Head home, then decide.
