Taurus (April 20-May 20)

When it comes to romance today, you might be obsessed about something or someone. That’s because it’s very easy to have a one-track mind. (Maybe you can’t get a song out of your mind? Like “I Shot the Sheriff”?)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A family discussion might reveal secrets today. Or perhaps a family member will persuade everyone else to agree with their point of view. This is a good day to make improvements to bathrooms, plumbing, garbage areas and anything to do with recycling.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
