Aries (March 21-April 19)

Surprise news related to your health or a pet or your job might occur today. Perhaps it’s something related to the introduction of new technology — or the failure of high-tech gizmos. (Always a mystery.) Nevertheless, you are still in play mode. Enjoy schmoozing with others today!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Take note parents: This is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids, so be extra vigilant. Meanwhile, everyone can expect a surprise invitation that might come your way or conversely, a social event or something to do with sports might be canceled. (Sports accidents are also likely.) “Man overboard!”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are busy now with many things; however, today something on the home front or within your family will catch you off guard. It might relate to a female relative. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, company might drop by, which means stock the fridge and get beer.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is an interesting day to buy wardrobe goodies for yourself because you might be surprised to discover something quite delightful. (Who knew?) Many unpredictable elements are at play today that will attract new places, new faces and new ideas into your world.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This continues to be a favorable time for you because the sun is in your sign. Nevertheless, today something surprising could affect your wealth. You might find money; you might lose money. Be wise and protect your belongings from theft, damage or loss. Be alert.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be careful. It’s easy to jump to conclusions today or to be too hasty when dealing with others. Take a breath and calm down. Be patient with others, and likewise, be impatient with your own duties and obligations. (Yes, you crave excitement — it will come!)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a restless day for you. Relations with bosses, parents and authority figures are excellent. Yes, you are popular and loved. Admittedly, close friends and partners might be a bit challenging, but nothing you cannot handle. Guard against knee-jerk reactions out of the blue.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A friend, possibly a female, might surprise you today. Alternatively, you might meet someone new who is unusual, bohemian or avant-garde. In the next few weeks, younger people will make you feel younger. In fact, someone might cause you to modify future goals. (“I’m quitting.”)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

It is apparent to others that you are a bit unsettled today because you’re restless, impulsive and not sure which direction to take. In part, this is because you long for a change of scenery and adventure. For many, romance is hot and heavy!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Travel plans might be interrupted today. Alternatively, you might suddenly have to travel! (Whaaat?) Be open to new ideas and new concepts, especially related to politics and religion. Things are happening so fast, if you stand still, you’re falling behind. (Ain’t it the truth?)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Check up on banking details and anything to do with inheritances, debt and insurance matters because something unexpected could affect these areas. It’s not big — but it’s something. When it comes to money, it’s always good to stay in touch.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Expect a few surprises from a friend or partner today. They might suggest something you least expect, or they might have some unusual news to tell you. Meanwhile, you’re working hard to earn money, even though Venus wants you to play. Tra la, tra la, it is to laugh!
