CANCER (June 21-July 22)

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’ve got the muscle to promote your ideas to others. Whether expressing your viewpoint or marketing a product, speak clearly and persuasively to get the message across. Take it down a notch, and nobody will be offended. Tonight: Romantic time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Cut fat from your budget. Think of one item that your heart is set on but is out of reach. Start saving for it while you eliminate nonessentials. Treat yourself well but don’t break the bank. Tonight: Group texts.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Take advantage of more confidence and high energy without burning the candle at both ends. Pace yourself, and the job will get done with time to spare. Show off your culinary skills to dinner guests. Tonight: Play a brain-teasing game.

Find a lull in your schedule so you can find that quiet space to catch up on reading. Combine social and volunteer activities, as long as they don’t demand too much of your time and energy. Tonight: Watch a celebrity biopic.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Speak your mind freely, and others will listen. Your idealism and earnestness come through loud and clear. Confide in a trusted friend about hidden fears. Put your mind at rest now that you got it off your chest. Tonight: Outdoor dining.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Look over detailed notes for projects you began but never finished. Discard those that will never see the light of day. Show those that seem worthwhile to someone who can comment objectively. Tonight: Be honest with someone you love.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Share insights about life and love with a group of like-minded people. These are not subjects that you openly talk about, so be discriminating. Start to think ahead toward the summer. Research a destination that appeals to everyone. Tonight: Takeout specials.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Things could feel like they are out of control. Don’t let your frustration get the better of you. Step back and find a solution. Gently but firmly steer others involved in the right direction. Tonight: Sweat off your nervous energy.
