ARIES (March 21-April 19) **** Initial confusion is likely to subside once you look at an issue as a control game or a power play. You will know exactly what to do and why.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) *** You might be evaluating the importance of continuing as you have been. A problem involving your family could arise.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) **** You will be heard, whether you are debating the pros and cons of an emotional situation or making plans for the weekend.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) *** Take a back seat for the moment. You will want to take action, but only after you feel you have a complete understanding of what is going on.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) **** Listen to news with a touch of cynicism, and you will be just fine. Go with the flow, and everything will fall right into place.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) *** Others might not intend to drop the ball, but that is what happens. You could feel out of sorts when dealing with a new love interest.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) **** Reach out for more information. Someone you count on could present an alternative perspective. Do not make any snap judgments — just listen.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) **** Deal with someone directly. You might not be as comfortable with this person as you would like. Just step back and observe for now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) **** Defer to others, as you might have an exciting detour in your plans. Use caution with money. A loved one could be delightful yet distracting.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) *** Pace yourself, as you could have more to do than you originally might have anticipated. A domestic matter is likely to cause some upset.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) **** Your playfulness will emerge. Your attitude could be distressing to someone who is determined to have a situation work a certain way.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) **** You could be happier than you thought possible when you walk away from a controlling friend. Try to open up more.
