ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may not please everyone, but you must please yourself. Expect derogatory comments, and be prepared to rise above whatever is said, knowing any allegations are based on jealousy, not facts. Strength of character will impress even your worst critic.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It’s the little things you manage to finish that will impress people the most. An opportunity to get involved in a new project will make you realize your true potential and what you should strive for in the future. It’s time to show your talent.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t wait for things to come to you. Get out and connect with people who have similar goals and can help you achieve your creative dreams. A change in direction will spark renewed enthusiasm.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Look at the positive in your life. Things are much better than you realize, but if you let your negative side emerge, you will set back the events that can lead to your success. Be willing to take a bit of a chance.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may have to change your strategy when dealing with people you are involved with professionally as well as personally. Secrets will backfire. Keep the dialogue open and honest; cover your back.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Set the stage, and present your ideas. You will have no trouble gaining interest or making a good impression. Your insight and talent will enable you to take control and get any help you may need.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): An emotional problem with someone you know through work can hold you back if you aren’t careful. Travel and learning should be emphasized. Love is looking very hot, and time must be put aside to play.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t take a back seat to anyone putting demands on you. Nothing should be allowed to stand in your way when it comes to learning, traveling, or doing something you enjoy. The development of something highly creative is in the stars.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Share your thoughts, ideas, and plans; you will be offered assistance. Take care of anyone who puts you on the spot or criticizes what you are trying to accomplish. A change at home or personally may be inevitable.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Settle down, and refrain from letting anyone see your frustration and anxiety. Look for people who have something to contribute to what you are doing, and it will be much easier to move forward and let go of the things you have no control over.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may have to do things differently because of financial changes. A budget and new strategy will set you on the right trail and ease your mind about your future. A career change looks possible and prosperous.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You need a break — time to think, reorganize your strategy, and regain your confidence. Consider something you enjoy doing or that you want to develop and turn it into a workable service you can offer to others.
