GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — HHHH One-on-one relating could take you down a new aisle or open a door that you hadn’t even noticed. To determine how valid this opportunity is, be willing to get past a barrier. You also need to decide whether you want to go for it. Tonight: Be a duo.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) — HHHH You could be full of fun. However, you might be experiencing some type of financial issue or change, which may keep you tamer than you are normally. Someone makes a demand. Say no if you want to. Tonight: All smiles.
