ARIES (March 21-April 19) **** Someone might be rather challenging. This person probably has been waiting for this moment to stand up to you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) *** No one knows how to lounge and be laid back like you do, though you often do not permit that behavior. Make this a supremely lazy day.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) **** Allow greater give-and-take between you and a child. Perhaps you’ll opt to join him or her for a fun kid’s activity.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) *** Be more sensitive to a family member who might need a little encouragement. Arguments could erupt, especially as others seem controlling.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) **** You might feel slightly overburdened, but a phone call could cheer you up. Don’t be surprised if you suddenly veer off.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) *** Be conscious of a need to overspend and go overboard. This activity might be OK once in a while, but in general it does not work out well.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) **** You could be involved in an argument involving a child or loved one. Later you might wish that you had not lost your temper.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) *** Take some much-needed personal time off; you will feel much better as a result. If you want to take a walk alone, do.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) **** Join a group of friends in an activity or pastime that you all enjoy. You will feel far more relaxed than you have in a long time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) **** Defer to someone else, and listen to his or her suggestions. You could be far more content if you let others take command and make choices accordingly.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) **** Someone could make an overture that is quite touching. Decide to let go and not worry so much. A friend might become testy if you don’t make time for him or her.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) **** Remain responsive to a loved one, even if you have had a tiff or two. You could get sucked into the blaming game. Listen without getting triggered.
