Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a playful, fun-loving time for you. For some, ex-lovers are back in your world. Postpone important decisions about romance until September. Today a friend or a member of a group will surprise you or catch you off guard. Perhaps a group is changing its mandate?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Home and family are your primary focus right now. Many of you are enjoying redecorating projects and home repairs, along with entertaining at home. Today a parent, boss or someone in authority (perhaps the police) will surprise you. Don’t react immediately. Figure out what to do.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’re busy with short trips, appointments and discussions with others, and you like this fast pace. However, today travel plans will suddenly change or be delayed or canceled. Possibly, a shift with something related to politics, religion, publishing and legal matters will occur. Stay flexible.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re focused on money, cash and earnings right now. Actually, money that has been owed to you might land in your lap. You might also buy something you’ve been wanting to get. Today, however, surprises with banking, inheritances and shared property might occur. Stay on top of details.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’re optimistic and confident because the sun is in your sign. This is also an excellent time for you to buy wardrobe goodies. Nevertheless, today you might be challenged by a close friend, partner or spouse. They might say or do something you least expect. (Possibly, they’ll introduce you to someone unusual.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’re eager to share your ideas. With Mars in your sign, you’re coming across strong, forceful and pro-active. (People will get your message.) Today interruptions to your work might occur because of equipment breakdowns, computer glitches and staff shortages. (Keep an eye on your pet.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Enjoy this increased popularity, especially with creative, talented people. (You love the arts.) Parents: Keep an eye on your kids today because this is an accident-prone day for them. Guard against sports accidents, as well. Meanwhile, social plans might suddenly change! Cancellations or invites.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Travel, study and adventure continue to appeal to you. However, today you might get a surprise related to your work or any job that you’re doing. Possibly, this surprise relates to your health or even something to do with a pet. Stay tuned.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Keep an eye on your money and your possessions today because this is a tricky day. You might find money; you might lose money. Protect what you own against loss, theft or damage. Parents should be extra vigilant about their kids, as well.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You feel excited today because you’re hungry for adventure. In fact, you feel rebellious, which is why you will flaunt routine and impulsively do something different. No doubt a close friend or partner will join you in your playful capers. Have fun!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a restless day for you, even though you are focused on working hard because you want to accomplish something. The nice thing is that work relationships are smooth. In fact, a work-related romance will begin for some of you. Keep your eyes open today.
