If today is your birthday: This year you seem to be more reserved than you have been in the past. You feel no need to act immediately on much, other than speaking your mind. If you are single, screen the people you meet with care — they might not be everything they project themselves to be. If you are attached, the two of you need to make time for each other regularly, as if you were just dating. The love temperature will rise as a result. Pisces makes a good healer for you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Enjoy some meaningful time with a loved one. A discussion will evolve that changes your opinion about a personal matter. Take advantage of an opportunity that might not appear again. You have Lady Luck on your side right now. Tonight: Vanish early.

This Week: Think about the big picture.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Join your friends out or invite them over for a spontaneous barbecue. You could hear a lot of news, including information about a friend who seems a bit somber and might be pulling away. Curb a tendency to overindulge. Tonight: Where the fun is.

This Week: Dedicate special time for a loved one.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

This Week: Get a lot done Monday and Tuesday. Distractions will appear midweek.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This Week: Your personal life dominates.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This Week: You are not the hare; you are the tortoise ... slow and steady.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
