◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You feel a bit conspicuous because you are noticed by others. That’s OK because you’ve got your game face on. Tonight is a good time to party because you feel freedom-loving and a bit reckless. Note: Remember that you need more sleep.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is a strong day for you because the Moon is in your fellow Earth sign. You want the freedom to do your own thing. You also want to travel anywhere or explore new ideas and expand your world. This evening you’ll enjoy lively debates.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You feel more reassured about your ability to deal with debt, bills and red-tape stuff, including inheritances and insurance matters. If making decisions late in the day, don’t be overconfident. Wishing does not always make it so. (Although, many times it does.)
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Today you feel confident. You’ll enjoy talking to members of the general public as well as close friends and partners. You might even want to brag about something. Because of your high energy and confidence, flirtations with others will appeal, especially this evening.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have the energy to get a lot done today, you feel confident and enthusiastic. You can also encourage others to endorse your ideas or go along with your plans. Just make sure your plans are doable, especially this evening. Even royalty has its limits.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a fun-loving, playful day. Take a long lunch or play hooky. It’s a great date night. Enjoy movies, sports, the theater, musical performances and parties. Playful times with children will also delight. You feel in touch with your muse and your creative talents.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It might be challenging to maintain harmony between your home and professional life. However, you can handle this challenge if you don’t get carried away or agree to do too much, especially this evening. Sometimes you spread yourself too thin.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You feel optimistic and because of this, those of you in sales, marketing, teaching, acting and writing will feel pretty hot. And indeed, you are. But it’s important that your audience believe you. Stay within the bounds of reality.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your focus is on earnings, cash flow, financial matters and purchasing power. You feel confident. You also feel that you can get the money you need to do what you want. But can you really? Make it easy on yourself and don’t expect too much of yourself and others.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is a pleasant day because things are flowing your way. Life seems to be relatively easy. You can relate to others successfully because they are drawn to your high energy. Nevertheless, don’t threaten a solid relationship with a dalliance that really means nothing to you.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’re talking to important people and eager to expand your world. Creative and artistic friends are a joy to hang out with. Difficulties with partners and close friends do exist, in part because of your own criticisms and judgment. Hidden flirtations might get you in trouble.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Enjoy hanging out with female companions. Others might want your creative input about design, layout, office arrangement or the appearance of something. You’re happy to expound on your ideas, in part because you have lots of energy to work hard.
