New horizons beckon. A phase of your professional life is ending and another one is beginning. Be receptive to changes. Tremendous ambition and pressure to succeed in your career are building. Today promises rewards, but you have demands to meet first. Tonight: Relax.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)


Expect conflict between the needs of the heart and a desire to achieve. Shy away from romantic involvements that lack sincerity. Don’t take others for granted; associates might not be as they first appear. Tonight: Catch up with an elderly family member.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)


Today favors study and travel. Journeys of the mind also will take you to new places. You can touch the hearts of others with your eloquent writing and speaking. Communication and understanding will be greatly improved. Tonight: New concepts broaden your outlook.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)


Transformation that has already begun will reach new potentials. Life is full of sparkle, but resist the temptation to control. Recognize and respect synchronicity. Allow destiny to play her hand, and you will triumph. Tonight: A night full of wonderment.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)


You’ll have tremendous energy and motivation, but could be quick to irritation. Aromatherapy and home remedies suggested by friends can help. Focus on only constructive thoughts and actions, and the world will be at your feet. Tonight: Exactly as you want it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)


There will be a yearning for solitude today. Deep peace and satisfaction come through time spent in solitary reverie. Quiet good deeds and kindnesses performed will deepen your personal happiness. Expect to notice a stronger rapport with wild places. Tonight: Early bedtime.
