ARIES (March 21-April 19): Trust your own judgment. Set the standard and run the show. Pursue what you want and you will find a way to incorporate everything you do into your plans. Love is on the rise, and fun times are ahead.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be careful how you approach touchy subjects with friends or family. Over-aggressiveness will lead to misunderstanding. Judge your relationships with others based on commonality and how relaxed you feel sharing personal information.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Offer services to someone in need. Your generosity will put you in a good position and allow you to demonstrate what you can contribute on a much larger scale. Take time out to do something enjoyable that will improve you personally.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don't take on more than you can handle or something you cannot finish. A problem with friends or children will leave you feeling helpless. If you want to make something work, you will have to find a unique solution.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Emotional matters will escalate if you aren't quick to take care of complaints. An unusual approach to saving will help you ward off someone's attempt to help you part with your money. Love is highlighted, but will be costly.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't consider doing everything by yourself. If you really want to make a difference, go to the experts and learn firsthand what's required. Your ability to admit when you are wrong will influence the outcome of a standoff.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You can take on more then you realize. Once you get moving, it will be difficult for anyone to catch up. Don't let an emotional comment slow you down or hold you back. Do your own thing and enjoy your accomplishments.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An argument will develop if you don't share others' beliefs. Don't discuss matters that can leave you in an awkward position. It's OK to head in a different direction, but you may not want to talk about it just yet.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't argue over money. Budget wisely, or you may not be able to afford your next adventure. A relationship will provide you with plenty of excitement. Don't exaggerate, or you will end up looking bad in front of someone you like.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your contributions won't go unnoticed if you are humble and gracious and you share any honors with those who contributed to your success. Sharing the glory can have a long-term effect on your advancement and popularity.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't let emotions lead you astray or cause you to miss out on something you really want to do. Getting your house in order will contribute to lifestyle improvements and help you to better manage your finances.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Let intuition lead. You can take action to avoid falling behind. Don't let someone who is trying to manipulate you personally interfere with what you need to accomplish professionally. Emotional deception is apparent. Get a second opinion.
