Aries (March 21-April 19) ••• If you’re feeling out of sorts, an open conversation will make a big difference. You might feel drained by certain elements in your daily life. Might it be time to let go of these debilitating elements?

Taurus (April 20-May 20) •••• You might not be able to communicate your intentions. Perhaps listening to each individual’s verbalization can help you communicate with them. The unexpected touches a relationship or friendship.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) ••• Listen to what is being said by a family member, even if you are uncomfortable. Rethink a problem that revolves around a partner. If you come from authenticity, you will see your way through. Togetherness could be challenged by tension.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) ••••• Speak to others; also listen with the same intensity. If you are uncomfortable with a situation, trust that you might not be the only one. Compassion and endurance go a long way.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ••• Know when to trim your budget. Timing could be critical. Don’t follow every other person’s suggestion; make decisions that confirm your uniqueness or specialness. Avoid a power play.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) •••• Your energy remains admirable, and you could be challenged by someone. Obviously, this person, at this moment in time, wants something different. Don’t take this mental stance personally, but only as a passage.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••• Continue to back off and handle a problem by yourself. You could be tired or drained by a situation, and not responding at the level you would like. Fatigue might be playing a role, especially with feelings that feel like a tidal wave.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••••• Others have similar aims and goals. You might need to make a small adjustment. A friend, however, could be heavy or difficult. Take news with a grain of salt. Supporters and friends stand behind you, even more so than in the past.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) •••• Know that you must take a stand, no matter how difficult this act might be. Someone pulls you in one direction, while another person heads in another direction. You might ask what is best to do. Don’t respond to pressure. Listen to yourself.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• Look past the obvious. If you do, you might not need to play the same role in situations. In fact, detaching could make the present turmoil much calmer than in the past. You might feel much better than you have in a long while.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) •••• Dealing with partners might not be as easy as you would like. You could be overwhelmed by what is happening in your personal or financial life. Don’t be. Just know that you are in a phase. Someone might not mean to be giving you an ultimatum.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) ••••• Continue to defer, and you’ll get the results you desire. How you deal with someone could change dramatically. Loosen up and relax with the ebb and flow of the tides, even if you think you are looking at a tsunami.
