ARIES (March 21-April 19) **** You can’t seem to indulge someone enough, whether you are participating in the shopping frenzy or hanging back with this person.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) **** You can do only so much, and then you need to pull back and observe the results. You can’t always tweak a situation to your liking.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) *** You are so upbeat about the long weekend that you might feel like a kid who is waiting for Santa. Do not forget to check in with a loved one.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) **** It could be hard to make a family member happy. This person could be vested in staying grumpy, and there is little that you can do.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) *** Plans made yesterday probably still will work. Getting together with a special friend over a long meal puts a smile on both your faces.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) **** You might be busy as you buy one great gift after another. Resist playing the “one for you, one for me, one for Sally, another for me” game.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) **** You might feel as if you are on top of the world. Make the most of today. Reach out to an old friend and make plans to get together.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ** You won’t be readily available and you might not be in the mood to share what you are doing. Let people think what they want to think.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) *** Make time for a special friend. Investing in a common experience is important in order to keep this bond alive and well.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) **** You have to make an appearance today. You will feel better after it is done; besides, you really don’t mind meeting this responsibility.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) **** Some of you could be making travel plans, while others might be addressing Christmas cards. A call takes you away from the reverie.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) **** Be sensitive to a partner or friend. Kick back and relax together. You could have very different stories to share.
