ARIES (March 21-April 19) **** Follow your sixth sense, and good results will arise. Your emotions might be the key to opening up a pal who has been withdrawn.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ***** No one can deny your innate resourcefulness. Your smile suggests to a friend or an associate that you will come up with an appropriate response or solution.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) **** Stay centered and maintain a sense of humor. You will emerge feeling successful and full of energy.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) **** Communication flourishes — so much so that you might need to screen your calls. You will have a job to do or an errand to run. Dig your heels in.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) *** You’ll observe others carefully. Hold up a mirror today, and look at what is happening in your own life from a detached point of view.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) **** Gain strength by taking a walk, potting a plant or sitting outside. Though you might need to ground yourself at times, you are a powerhouse to deal with.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) *** If it weren’t Friday, you probably would consider running away. The more nonreactive you become, the less a difficult situation will matter.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ***** You might prefer to pave your own path and go it alone. If you look over your shoulder, you’ll see a group of friends behind you cheering you on.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) **** You might zig and zag when trying to find the right path out of a problem. You have taken responsibility by looking for the solution. Check out all angles.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) **** You will be full of new ideas. As you illuminate your surroundings with bright solutions, you will reinforce the positive attitudes of others.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) *** Your mind is not focused on the here and now. You could be distracted. Discipline yourself. Your presence counts.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) **** Don’t kid yourself into thinking that others should be at your beck and call. Separate your needs from your desires.
