ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't give in to poor behavior. Do your best, but don't compensate for someone else's shortcomings. You may need to make personal or professional changes to avoid being taken advantage of or treated poorly. Put your needs first.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take an interest in what others are doing, and pitch in. Taking part will bring you an opportunity to use your skills in a unique way. Don't allow a secret to stunt your personal or professional growth.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Financial assistance will be limited, but putting your plans into motion and connecting with people who can pave the way to your success is likely if you network and set up meetings. Love will flourish, but overspending will lead to emotional problems.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Go over every last detail carefully. There will be no room for error. Emotions will be difficult to control, and taking a serious approach to any relationships you are involved in personally or professionally will be necessary.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Welcome any challenge that allows you to show off your skills, talent, or expertise. A lifestyle change will perk you up and expand the possibilities for future friendships. Love is in the stars, but jealousy can hinder the outcome.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Gravitate toward seriously minded people with similar goals. Shy away from unstable investments or unpredictable individuals trying to sell you something enticing but not necessary. Collaborate with trusted colleagues or personal partners. Take good care of your health.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Look at the big picture, and expand your interests. Connect with people who have knowledge or skills you would like to learn. Partnerships appear unstable, and a power struggle must be handled diplomatically.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Listen to what's being revealed. Your ability to read between the lines will help you make good personal choices. A creative challenge must be embraced and dealt with passionately and with enthusiasm. An emotional matter mustn't be treated impulsively.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Make your home environment more conducive to what you like to do personally and professionally. Having a space that encourages you to develop ideas will also enhance your relationships with others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Difficulties while traveling or dealing with friends, peers, or people in your community can be expected. Don't let confusion set in based on someone's unpredictability. Set your course, and stick to it regardless of what others do or say.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Spend time improving your personal situation. Rely on old friends, and readdress plans you shelved or didn't have time to pursue. Getting together with people you lost touch with will give you a new lease on life. Embrace change and romance.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Assist people you feel have something to offer in return. You can stabilize your financial future if you take precautions now with regard to investments and contracts. Negotiate your position with a long-term mentality instead of instant gratification, and you will benefit.
