TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Ask for favors, but be prepared to give an in-depth analysis and a well-thought-out plan of compensation. Contribute something worthwhile to a cause you believe in, and you will impress the people you want to conduct business with.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Take a break. Regain your strength, and protect against an emotional situation that will leave you upset and nonproductive. Do whatever it takes to avoid letting your personal life interfere with your professional decisions.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Venture in new directions. Familiarize yourself with different cultures and ways of doing things, and you will discover options you never knew existed. Educational activities will give you a new slant on the way you do things. Romance is highlighted.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Think before taking action. Don't believe everything you hear, especially if it has to do with risky joint-money ventures. Get back on track, and make the personal changes that will ensure better health, wealth, and state of mind.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Partnerships will be tense if you let your emotions take over. Honesty and sincerity will be your best approach when dealing with others. Don't feel the need to pay for someone else's mistake. Use logic and reasonable alternatives to reach your objective.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Make an effort to take care of business. Leaving unfinished business for someone else to deal with will cause a rift in your relationship. Use your personal skills, knowledge, and physical abilities to get things done on time without leaning on others.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You will face disillusionment regarding someone you thought you could trust. Make the necessary changes to protect your physical and emotional well-being. Money and possessions should be safely tucked away to avoid loss. An investment you make will grow in value.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your friendships will be valued, and the suggestions you make will be taken seriously. Reconnecting with someone you used to know will open your eyes to what you want. Preparation will lead to success, not impulsiveness.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Focus on material gains and job opportunities. Search online job posts, and check out changes going on in whatever industry you belong to. You can make a move if you are quick to respond. A partnership will lead to a positive alternative.
