ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHHH Holding you back would be more than challenging. A partner might be depressed or overserious. Understand that you can do only so much.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You might want to have a long-overdue talk, but you could be intimidated by a facet of the discussion. A loved one could be distant without intending to hurt you.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH You might want to try a new approach with someone who has not been as responsive as you would like. Wait awhile before having any deep talks.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You might expect someone to see a personal situation far differently from how you see it. When this person presents his or her views, you’ll find that this is not the case.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You might be as happy as can be wondering what you want to do next. You could be taken aback by a family member who has a very strong point of view.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HH You could be pressured beyond any level of your comprehension. Someone does not see a personal matter in the same light that you do.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHHH Emphasize what is positive in your life, and you will feel as if nothing can stop you. Understand exactly what is happening behind the scenes.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Your attitude might be particularly intense, especially to an older friend or loved one. You are handling a lot, only you do it in a much different way from this person.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH Hop in the car and go for a ride as far away as reasonable. A change of scenery helps you detach, and allows greater give-and-take.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHHH You could be taken aback by a situation. The person in question might seem as cold when you try to initiate conversation. He or she will come around.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH You can’t stop a friend or loved one from dominating. It is a part of this person’s personality, and you need to accept it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Give more of yourself to a situation or a cause that means a lot to you. A phone call might not be returned. Enjoy the people with you.
