PISCES tunes into your needs easily.

Reach out and find out what is going on with a loved one at a distance. A partner does not currently work well with your thinking. He or she might be closing down for the moment. Tonight: Off hearing a favorite group.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Socially, you are often the lead player. Relate to a key person on a one-on-one level. He or she needs some special time with you. Go along with what this person asks. As a result, you might feel refreshed and more centered than you have in a while. Tonight: Dinner for two.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You could be more flexible, yet at the moment, you can see how to make a dream come true. Know that you still might need to flex at the last minute. Your creativity emerges just in time to keep you on the right path. Tonight: Anything goes.
