ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may be the live wire that enlivens your surroundings. You possess leadership skills that can motivate everyone in your immediate vicinity, but remember to maintain decorum and use common sense.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may sense disapproval. Because you are feeling the eye of your superiors on you, you may be more formal and reticent. Look forward to a needed rest from the pressure of business as usual.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Listen with your heart as well as your mind. Be sensitive to emotional needs and do not push anyone to make key decisions. Mental poise can ensure harmonious results if you will let events unfold without interference.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): You like to prove that you are sharp as a tack, but you may make your point in a way that offends others. Since you are adept and skillful, don't point out errors or mistakes to others. Instead, just meekly fix them.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Love can be a maverick that escapes the branding iron. This isn't the time to ask for a commitment or to try to pin anyone down. A surge in your ambition can mean great things can be accomplished on your own.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Remain reassuring and confident where others are concerned — but avoid asking for commitment. Avoid purchasing clothing or luxury items, as pretty new things may have small flaws that escape your scrutiny.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You aren't home on the range. If you hear a few discouraging words, do not take them to heart. Skirt conflicts by refusing to be drawn into personal debates. Wait for better timing to make key decisions.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Romantic fires that were burning bright may sputter to ashes if put to the test. Don't make waves where your wallet or your heart are concerned. Do be prepared to actively defend your reputation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Have faith, do your best and bide your time. Your closest companions will be sensitive to your moods, but you must be willing to give up small pleasures in order to have greater security.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Push may be coming to shove. Allow others to carry part of the load for a while. Pay attention to inspirational ideas that can make your money grow and write them down for future reference.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Speaking without forethought can cause misunderstandings. You imagine you know what someone feels, and that you are sensitive to the feelings of others, but you could be completely off base.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Problems may be hidden from view. Asking for commitments or promises could be like walking through a minefield; you don't know what you might set off. Trusted friends can guide you through tricky situations.
