TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — HHHH Others let you know it is their way or the highway — or so they think. You might opt to say little, continue on an established path and deal with the matter in question at a later point. Tonight: Get together with a loved one.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — HHHH Plunge into errands or a project. Do not stop, yet be responsive to relevant questions. Others seem busy, with a lot on their minds.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — HHHHH Reach out for someone at a distance who you care about before your day becomes too hectic. Make plans for the near future. Keep your concerns basic and do not spread your energy in too many directions. Focus; you will accomplish a lot. Tonight: Let fun in.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — HHHH You are likely to say something controversial without intending to. Recognize how the statement could have sounded different from how you intended. If you explain, you might be able to save the moment. Tonight: Keep the fun close to home.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — HHHHH Defer to another person who might have more education and understanding on a key topic. Do not hesitate to ask questions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — HHH Lie back until late afternoon. You might have some task that demands heavy concentration. Today would be the perfect time to work on it. Once you get past a hurdle, you become social. Tonight: Making weekend plans.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — HHHHH Use the first half of the day for a project that could bring many people toward you. If you complete it in that time period, you will succeed.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) — HHHH You know others could be observing how you handle a superior. Trust in your abilities, but don’t push yourself too hard or try to impress someone. Just be you. You are impressive. Tonight: Wherever you are, expect a party.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) — HHHH Stay on top of communications. What someone says to you might not make any sense until you evaluate what wasn’t said. Walk in the other person’s footsteps.
