ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t get emotional about work-related matters. Be professional, and do the best you can. Invest in your skills, knowledge, and expertise, but not in risky, fast-cash joint ventures. Build a strong relationship, make a commitment, and improve your living arrangement.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Go over every detail before you share your findings with someone in a position of power. Take a moment to rejuvenate and re-evaluate. Making an impulsive decision or move will leave you scrambling. Time is on your side. Slow down.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Avoid letting temptation get to you in either your personal or financial life. An impulsive move will lead to regret and backtracking. Focus on personal improvements that will benefit you mentally and physically, as well as result in positive feedback.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Focus on the positive. Keep things in perspective. Use your energy and your emotions to keep the peace. Make love, offer affection, and be attentive. Think before you speak, and you’ll avoid an incident that can result in mood swings and hurt feelings.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Take charge, and take the initiative to make things happen. The changes you bring about may not be readily accepted, but once you have everything up and running, you will gain respect and support. Make home improvements to add to your comfort.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Networking events will be more entertaining and exciting than anticipated. The people you encounter will interest you personally and professionally. Share your thoughts, concerns, and intentions, but don’t exaggerate. Love is in the stars, and romance is highlighted.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Don’t push your luck when dealing with the people you see on a daily basis. Keep your thoughts to yourself, and bide your time. Don’t make an impulsive, emotional move that could result in financial loss. Accept change, but don’t initiate it.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You will pick up valuable information. Make creative changes at home that will make your life easier and enhance personal relationships. Doors will open if you talk to experts. Your ideas will attract interest and worthwhile suggestions.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Refrain from getting into a debate with someone who can influence your reputation or position. You can make changes at home as long as you don’t go over budget. Avoid spending on luxury items. Cut out the middleman by doing your own work.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Confusion will set in if you share your thoughts. You are best to do your research and formulate a plan or strategy that is failsafe before presenting your case. Someone older or more experienced will take a personal interest in you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Look over your personal paperwork. Get your finances in order. You have more leeway than you think if you make a couple of adjustments. Invest in your skills and ideas, and you will find a way to cut corners.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Feeling taken for granted is likely if you aren’t willing to say no. Put more time and effort into your goals instead of helping someone else get ahead. Love is on the rise, but motives may be questionable.
