ARIES (March 21-April 19): The urge to hyper-manage relationships needs to be kept in perspective. You cannot control everything done by others but you can control your own choices, actions and words.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Vigilance helps in changeable circumstances. Adaptation and adjustment may be called for at work or at home today. Stay alert to helpful cues from your surroundings.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): An overturned ruling, uncertain heart or changeful mind can have a significant impact upon the outcome of an event today. Quick thinking allows you to shift gears in a hurry when necessary.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Blocked progress in a relationship requires give-and-take from both parties to resolve. If cooperation seems impossible you may need to wait it out until communication improves.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Words taken out of context can be troublemakers today. Clear communication keeps business flowing productively and can help keep a friendship or romance on an even course, too. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A financial setback likely belongs in the "temporary" category today, with little or no permanent harm done. Reshuffle plans and a problem can be solved without much fuss or muss. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Something that seemed crystal clear can appear murkier today. It may be tempting to jump to a conclusion but a more prudent approach is likely to produce more reliable results. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stick with a step-by-step plan and prospects for reaching or exceeding a financial goal are enhanced. Secret allies are helpful even when facing crafty opposition or stiff competition. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There is a lot that can be learned by studying someone else's methodology today. Pay attention and you can increase your emotional or professional arsenal of resources. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be proactive and you can weather any storm of criticism that blows in your direction today. Consider the source and the motivation before taking any barb personally.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A recently purchased gadget or appliance can usefully streamline certain aspects of your everyday routine --- once you master its operation. The inventive side of your personality is in the spotlight.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The mysterious or haunting qualities of a person, place or thing are not likely to escape notice today. Psychic, creative or spiritual energies seem particularly stirred up and lively.

These interpretations are based on the aspects and positions of the planets in relation to each sun-sign. They indicate the general mood and issues of the day as you experience them. Be creative in applying your forecast to the actual circumstances of your life.
