ARIES (March 21 to April 19): When dealing with others today, don’t push things, because relations with everyone are strained today. This is not just you — it’s happening everywhere.


TAURUS (April 20 to May 20): Something going on behind the scenes will affect how you deal with others today. It will hold you back or make you hesitant. (This is nothing to worry about.)


GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): Relations with someone older or in a position of authority might be a bit strained today. This is a poor day to ask for gifts or favors. Just coast.


CANCER (June 21 to July 22): Relations with parents, partners, close friends or perhaps a boss are strained today. People are guarded and playing their cards close to their chest. (It is what it is.)


LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): School or study might seem onerous today. It’s something you have to do but you don’t want to do it. Steer clear of political and religious discussions. Be smart.


VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): You might be disappointed in your fair share of something. Or perhaps someone will refuse to lend you something? This is a touchy day for everyone. (Don’t take it personally.)


LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): You like to get along with everyone because you’re a pleaser. Today, however, people are a bit uptight and frosty. Relax — it’s just what it is.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): At work you have to keep on truckin’ today. Focus on duties and obligations, and you will get things done. Everyone is in serious work mode.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): Children might be an increased responsibility today. Likewise, practice in the arts or sports could be demanding. Do what you have to do in order to improve.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): Don’t ask an authority figure in the family for permission or for a favor today. Keep your head down and your powder dry.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): It’s easy to fall into worry mode today. Remember the saying: “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere.”


PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Money feels tight today. This is why you might feel broke. Mike Todd said, “I’ve never been poor, only broke. Being poor is a frame of mind. Being broke is only a temporary situation.”


BORN TODAY: Your friends like you. You are sensitive and shy to show your talents. You want a stable life with some basic luxuries. It’s time to identify future goals because you’re entering a year of exciting new beginnings! What do you want for yourself in the next several years? Be proactive about going after what you want. This year you will be physically energetic!
