Aries (March 21-April 19) •••• Your finances remain a major preoccupation. Fatigue could play into your decision-making. Knowing this, slow down and take one situation at a time. The unexpected occurs, at least in your mind.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) •••• You are still in the pink. Your creativity could be stronger, but your ability to see past the obvious allows you to step out way ahead of others. Friends might surprise you with their ideas. Listen and brainstorm.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) ••• Say less and listen more. Bosses do the unexpected, and you need to roll with the moment. You might want to come from a stronger sense of well-being. Creativity surges when intellectual conversation and brainstorming occur. Tonight: Get a good night’s sleep.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) ••••• You might want to rethink a meeting or what you are going to contribute to this situation. Sudden insights take you in a new direction. Keep conversations flowing, understanding what others say. That doesn’t mean you agree!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) •••• Accept a budding responsibility, at least for today. You also realize your limits and understand what others offer. Don’t give away all your power, but see delegating as different and important.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) •••• Reach out for others, seeking answers. You understand far more than you realize. A brainstorming session opens many doors. Creativity and understanding help your day-to-day life.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••••• Work with one partner, especially as you see this person holds all the cards. Being smart and not bucking the obvious proves to be a great idea. Observe the results. Creativity plays a role, but allow others to test your ideas.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) •••• Others continue to call the shots, no matter what you do. Try not to buck the status quo; accept a quieter role. Your imagination easily goes haywire. Avoid risking and keep your feet on the ground. .

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) •••• Get into work or your daily routine. How much you can get done could change radically, as many surprising events could stop you dead in your tracks. Refuse to commit to spending any money until you are sure of the wisdom of an idea.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• Let your imagination and drive merge. Know when to nix what appears to be a great idea if the budget might not be stable. Your sense of what works can make a difference.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••• Listen to basics. Family and home remain high priorities, even if you would like to concentrate on other matters. Suppressed anger might be driving you a lot harder than you realize.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ••••• Look to a more positive event, and worry less about a lingering problem or issue. You cannot change what is happening. Display your unique flexibility and ability to see beyond the obvious.
