TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A stubborn attitude won't get you what you want. Be reasonable and offer positive suggestions, and you'll convince others to meet you halfway. Do your part, and you'll get further ahead and make a good impression. Don't lend or borrow money. 5 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you look, you will find something that sparks your imagination and sends you on a hunt for something new and exciting. Don't limit what you can do because someone else is emotionally manipulative. Take control and take responsibility for your happiness. 4 stars
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Getting along with others will be tricky. Evasive communication will take over, leaving you and those you deal with confused and wondering what to do next. Leave nothing to chance, take notes and when in doubt, ask a question. Honesty is the best policy. 2 stars
