ARIES (March 21-April 19) ★★★ You might feel as if you’re being pulled in two different directions. You’ll want to stop in your tracks and make a decision about what you would like to handle at the moment. Choose to respond only after you have thought things out. Tonight: Get some extra R and R. This Week: Others play a prominent role.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ★★★★★ You might have planned to dedicate your day to a loved one. Know that you have little choice in what the two of you do. It seems as if you have made an agreement to visit a friend as well. Juggling both of these plans could have you feeling tense. Tonight: Use your ingenuity. This Week: Distractions seem to keep popping up.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ★★★ Home is where the heart is, yet you have so much happening on the domestic front that tranquility might not be possible. A loved one or dear friend becomes unusually quiet once more. Do not push this person past his or her boundaries. Tonight: Stay as close to home as possible. This Week: Your imagination plays a strong role in your success this week.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) ★★★★ You have a lot on your mind. Whether consciously or by accident, you’ll start to spill the beans. News from a distance helps you to detach and see the big picture. Indulge someone who is a very loyal friend. Tonight: Greet a change with excitement, though expect a little confusion. This Week: You need to remain sensitive to a family member’s needs.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ★★★ Use caution with all financial matters. You could feel pushed by a close friend to make a purchase that makes you uncomfortable. Initiate a discussion, and also be willing to say “no” -- if you don’t take care of yourself, who will? Tonight: Meet a friend at a preferred haunt. This Week: You have a way with words that could turn a situation around.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ★★★★ Your energy remains high, but it has a nervous quality to it. You might feel cornered or overwhelmed by a situation. Lady Luck could push you in a different direction altogether. Stand your ground, and you’ll make a good decision. Tonight: In the whirlwind of the moment. This Week: Others care about what you care about.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ★★★★ You have a strong sense of direction, and you know what it means to make a statement and then move forward. You can be incisive and clear, if you so choose. Generally, though, you tend to be rather vague. If your opinion differs from someone else’s, say so. Tonight: Make it early. This Week: Socialize to your heart’s content.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ★★★★ Don’t get caught in an either/or situation. You might feel as if you need to make a choice between a friend and a loved one. The less said, the better. However, you could feel the need to say “yes” to both parties. Stay on top of any emotional confusion. Tonight: Have a barbecue. This Week: You dive into a project Monday.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ★★★ You could be feeling cornered by an older friend or relative. Your sense of what is appropriate to do is likely to emerge. You might be wondering what connects you to this person to the extent that you feel you must do as he or she says. Tonight: A must appearance. This Week: Slow down by midweek, and get some extra R and R.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ★★★ Think before you leap into a situation that might force you to detach or change. A trip is a possibility, even if it’s just to meet a friend for lunch halfway between your two locations. You’ll have a unique opportunity to change direction. Tonight: Return several long-distance calls. This Week: You open up to many new possibilities.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ★★★★ You could be pushing a loved one too far. Know that this person is likely to have a strong reaction. Perhaps you feel as if you can’t do enough to please him or her. A friend will drop by to share what he or she perceives to be a difficult matter. Tonight: Don’t argue about who is right. This Week: A partner dominates a good part of the week.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ★★★★ You might feel as if you have the right response to a situation; however, a close friend or loved one could have a very different perspective. Keep trying to find a point of agreement. Recognize what is worth fighting about and what isn’t. Tonight: Defer to your significant other. This Week: A struggle could be getting the best of you.
