ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take time for the activities, events, and hobbies you most enjoy. You deserve a break that will rejuvenate, motivate, and stimulate you. Pamper yourself, and you will feel confident and ready to face any competition.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will be under fire and lose control if you force your will on others. Don’t make changes that can influence your personal or home life. Someone may be trying to back you into a corner in order to make you look bad.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Love is on the rise, and a chance to meet some interesting people and join in activities that you find challenging and exciting will lead to new opportunities. A couple of changes made to your living quarters will make you more comfortable and give you incentive to develop a new pastime.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t give out any information that may incriminate you, and at the same time, consider what you are doing before you jeopardize your current status or position. You could easily be blamed for something that you didn’t do.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Calm down; let things develop. You will be able to use your charm to get the attention of people who have something to contribute to your cause. Take what’s being offered, but know that everything has a price tag.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Someone who is being secretive may try to involve you in something dubious. Keep everything out in the open so you cannot be held responsible for the actions of someone else. A change of heart is apparent.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Get your priorities straight. Don’t let complaints cause you to lose focus or fall short of your goals. A jealous peer must be stopped before disrupting your plans. You should take care of matters yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can develop a project you are working on, but don’t let others view what you have produced or someone is likely to copy you. You have to add more detail and perfect your ideas before you present what you have to offer.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A chance to make some money through contracts, settlements, insurance, or even inheritance is likely. Travel to an unusual destination, and pick up some ideas you can develop. An unusual offer will catch you off guard.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Someone may try to fool you into thinking you have the upper hand. Do your research carefully; you will discover that what’s being offered isn’t anything you cannot do on your own. Take care of your health.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will be torn between what you want to do and what you have to do. Emotions will be hard to control and will make your life complicated. Love is prominent and should lead to a better relationship.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t give out too much information. As soon as you trust someone else to do your job, something will go wrong. Someone you think is interested in you is sending you false signals.
