ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Your temper seems to be close to the surface. You might have had some experience taming the anger within, which makes it less likely that you will explode. Be forgiving if someone starts acting out or simply becomes wild. Tonight: Off doing your thing.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

A domestic issue emerges that could put you deep into thought. Reverie might not be appropriate at work! Extremes seem to mark your day. Connect with others, and express your concerns. You are able to flourish once you get past a hassle. Tonight: Go with the moment.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You have a way of expressing yourself and your needs. You might want to take a break from the immediate situation. Go off and take a walk, then share your thoughts openly. Tonight: Visit with a neighbor or close friend who has been knocking on your door.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Build yourself up. Consider taking a class, or schedule more frequent gym visits. Be careful when dealing with a partner. Stay centered, and do not allow yourself to be thrown off-kilter. A conversation helps you put together the big picture. Tonight: Choose a favorite stress-buster.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You beam and draw others toward you. As a result, your positive attitude goes far. Others tend to reveal much more when you are open with them. Watch a tendency to be excessive in your self-expression, no matter what you do! Listen to feedback. Tonight: Do what you want.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You could be dealing with more than your share of details and issues. You also have a lot of information to digest. You will have a new beginning if you decide to change certain patterns. Think deeply about a minor revision of a segment of your life. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Get down to basics when having a discussion. You cannot avoid a conversation for long — and the sooner you have it, the better. Your anger is close to the surface. Try to avoid an eruption of fury. Be careful if you feel hot under the collar. Tonight: Follow your friends.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You decide to have a long-overdue conversation with a higher-up. You could have difficulty getting a situation under control, especially as you might be harboring some undefined resentment or anger. Honor your differences. Tonight: Out and about, strutting your stuff.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

When trying to piece together a problematic situation, detach and try to imagine what it is like to be in the other person’s shoes. Identifying with others helps you come up with a reasonable solution for all parties involved. Tonight: Go see a movie with a loved one.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are able to look at a problem from a unique perspective. As a result of your unusual view, you see what others don’t. In fact, a solution might not be needed, but rather understanding and empathy toward each other. Ask questions, if necessary. Tonight: Opt to be a team.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Defer to others, and let them clearly express their agendas. You are unlikely to lose yourself if you allow another person to dominate for a while. You also might understand why you do not like being as passive as you are. Tonight: At a favorite spot with favorite people.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Deal with a work-related matter. Your schedule might be intense and very busy. You could wonder what way would be best to present a new idea. You might want to wait for now. Ask a close loved one if you are projecting negativity. Tonight: Know when to call it a night.
