ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take everything in stride. It’s up to you to face each battle with patience and the realization that you can only do so much; after that, it’s out of your hands. Live, love, and laugh.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Problems with acquaintances or people you have to work alongside will develop because of deception. Try to be as straightforward as possible. It will be important for you to be intuitive and to read between the lines.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can make professional moves or exploit your talents in areas you haven’t infiltrated in the past. Love is in the stars, and making a move toward a commitment or getting closer to someone special will boost your morale.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Think twice before making any sort of change, move, or statement. Not everyone will agree with your plans and objections, and criticism can be expected. Work quietly on your own for now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Hop to it, and you will fit everything you want to accomplish into your day. There is nothing you cannot do if you put your mind to it. Travel, love, and communications will all play a vital role in your progress.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): There is plenty that must be dealt with before you can make any financial decisions. Look at your assets, and consider what you can afford. The budget you set now will determine how well you will do this month.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t let uncertainty be your downfall, especially when dealing with important partnerships. Be creative and innovative in the way you approach others. Overreacting will lead to an unhealthy dispute.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Let your emotions out. You have to be willing to speak up about the way you feel and what you want and need in your life. It’s your conviction and dedication that will win favors.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Put more time and effort into home, family, and your future. You should make a move or travel a distance if it will help you obtain a better-paying position. New surroundings will lift your spirits and help you move forward.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’ll have to be very careful what you say and do. You will meet with opposition, and any form of overindulgence — emotionally, physically, mentally, or financially — will only make matters worse. Keep a low profile and a watchful eye on what others are doing.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Everything is looking favorable. An opportunity that will allow you to bring in a steady stream of cash is apparent. Your creative and inventive way of doing things will capture someone’s attention, and a contract or partnership can be formed.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Put your energy to good use. Someone’s uncertainty will be a result of your not being able to make up your mind. Try not to confuse the people who truly want to help you get ahead. Listen and respond positively.
