ARIES (March 21-April 19): Get out and do something physical so you feel accomplishment at the end of the day. A little love and affection can be yours if you do something nice for the person you are most fond of.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Being stubborn or hard to get along with will not bring you any benefits, no matter how you look at it. Back down and even admit you might be wrong, and you will put yourself in a far better position.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t trust what people tell you today. Lousy information will lead you on a wild goose chase. Someone who is looking out for his or her own interests may try to take advantage of you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Love and romance are in a high cycle today. Keep company with people who can introduce you to new friends. Your energy is high and your ideas unique, so put both to good use.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may be a generous lion, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend money to impress others. Your charm and entertaining persona should be quite enough. Watch your cash flow or you will end up in a disagreement over money.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Not everyone or everything will be out to get you today. Relax and give everyone around you a break. It’s not that hard to smile and be fun, so give it a try.
