ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Challenged by a situation, you will be forced to take a stand that you might not have thought through. Others respond in a big way. You will find the answer in a heavy conversation involving others. Tonight: Go for the unusual answer.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

One-on-one discussions create several plausible solutions. As you toss various ideas into the ring, you might be taken aback by what evolves. Not everyone is on target or as clear as they can be. A talk could become flirtatious. Tonight: Brainstorm away.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Others reach out for you and you might be surprised by what you hear. Clear out any vague or unusual possibilities. Do not push anyone too far. You might be stopping yourself from achieving your desired goal. Tonight: The only answer is yes.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Stay focused on the topic or task at hand. You do not always achieve what you want. You will see that many different options come forward. Do not nix any situation without airing it out with others. Tonight: Let the party begin.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your desire to let go and be as spontaneous as possible emerges. You could feel frustrated by something that comes up. Tap into your imagination to make plans or suggestions. Tonight: Do not worry as much about rejection.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You could be overly wound up over a problem around your personal life. You may need to take a step back to get past the issue. Instead, deal with your career or matters dealing with those in charge. Tonight: Express your concern to a family member.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You are quite capable of coming up with the perfect response to what could be a challenging situation. You might not realize that you have the right solution until a close friend or relative comments on your idea. Tonight: Let your hair down.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Defer to others. You might want to be available, but another person could be interfering with the moment. Let this person be — you might not even have a choice. You will gain a better perspective. Tonight: Buy a treat on the way home.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might feel pressured and make an offhand comment or two to fill the blank space in a conversation. Be careful; you could be creating a problem that might be close to impossible to undo! Tonight: Be open to a suggestion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Know that you need to compromise even though you might not feel that way at this point. If you want, you can give a situation more time to work it through. Do not pressure yourself if you do not see a response immediately. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A friend might be more vested than you realize in pushing a situation in a certain direction. As you decide what you want to do, the other party could become frantic. Help this person see the matter as you do. Tonight: Relax, then decide.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You sense that you might need to get more involved than you originally intended. Someone could be pushing you too hard for your taste. Unless you state your limits, he or she has no way to judge what is happening. Tonight: Make it an early night.
