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 communicate succinctly, and others hear what you’re saying. You might not appreciate their unresponsiveness, but understand that they could be revealing how they feel nonverbally. Tonight: Keep the conversation light.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
••• Try to keep your opinions to yourself, even if someone asks for feedback. This person might not be prepared to hear what you have to say. Tonight: Happy to be home.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
•••• You could be in a difficult position without even knowing it. When someone asks for your opinion, he or she won’t want to hear it if it’s going to be negative. Tonight: Visit with a friend and catch up on this person’s news.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
••• You might want to share more with a loved one, but this person’s knee-jerk reaction could persuade you to keep some details to yourself. Tonight: Let a child or new friend be spontaneous.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
•••• You might find it to be a bit of a downer when you try to integrate new ideas, and others react with negativity. Remember, that is their opinion — not yours. Tonight: Toot your own horn!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
••• Read between the lines when dealing with a neighbor or sibling. There could be a lot of contention or withholding from this person. Let it be. Tonight: Hang out.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
••• Bounce your ideas off a friend. You might be amazed by what comes up as a result. Tonight: Reach out for the stars.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
••• You’ll listen to someone with care, yet something within you could force you to respond negatively. Do not view this as being random; the idea presented just might not be workable. Tonight: In the limelight.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
•••• Listen to the words a loved one utters. You could feel hurt or have a very strong emotional response to what this person says. Tonight: Be more childlike.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
••• Deal with others on a one-on-one basis for the best results. You might find the agreement you reach with someone to be unsatisfying. Tonight: Let a friend close down.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
•••• To get a word in with someone demanding will take skill, but it also will encourage a lively exchange. Tonight: An older friend could be the downer of the night.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
•••• You might want to reconsider your plans. Perhaps you’re not being realistic about what you can accomplish in a certain amount of time. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise.
