ARIES (March 21-April 19) ** You might go off boldly in the morning, but you’ll want to retreat by the afternoon. A lot is on your mind, which could discourage you from taking action.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) **** You will perk up as the day goes on. You have many ideas, and you see many possibilities tied to them. Your mind seems to be on overdrive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) *** You might sense a change in your mood and in others’ moods as well. Don’t worry about what you can’t change; instead, focus on yourself.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) **** Understand what is going on with a loved one. This person might need you to bottom-line a critical issue for him or her. Listen carefully.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) **** Try not to assume the role of leader right now. You have a great sense of what to do and when, but let others also take center stage sometimes.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) **** Defer to someone else for the time being. Others seem to be just as confused as you are. Take a step back and observe what is happening.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) **** You could feel a bit down. Pace yourself, and handle a personal matter. Examine what is happening with a work-related matter as well.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ***** Your imagination knows no limits. How much you choose to share will be your call. Others might seem more receptive than usual.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) **** Verbalizing your thoughts will add an interesting twist to a situation. Choose to say little as you digest this information.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) **** Listen to what is being shared. Only you can judge the importance of all the information you are hearing. Reach out for a friend.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) *** Deal with a money matter directly — you can’t put off this decision for much longer. News could come in from someone at a distance.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) **** You could find a situation testy at best. Allow your creativity to flourish, and you’ll see a personal matter very differently in a few days.
