ARIES (March 21 to April 19): Try to say as little as possible about the work you’re doing through the end of the month. Then you can make your announcement and accept your well-deserved plaudits.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20): You face a more difficult challenge than you expected. But with that strong Taurean determination, you should be able to deal with it successfully by week’s end.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): Before you act on your "feelings" about that upcoming decision, it might be wise to do a little fact-checking first. You could be very much surprised by what you don’t find.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22): A recent workplace success can open some doors that were previously closed to you. On a personal level, expect to receive some important news from a longtime friend and colleague.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): Put your wounded pride aside and do what you must to heal that misunderstanding before it takes a potentially irreversible turn and leaves you regretting the loss of a good friend.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): One way to kick a less-than-active social life into high gear or rebuild an outdated Rolodex file is to throw one of your well-organized get-togethers for friends and associates.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): Getting out of an obligation you didn’t really want to take on can be tricky. An honest explanation of the circumstances can help. Next time, pay more attention to your usually keen instincts.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): Use your Scorpion logic to push for a no-nonsense approach to a perplexing situation. This could help keep present and potential problems from creating more confusion.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): A friend’s problem might take more time than you want to give. But staying with it once again proves the depth of your Sagittarian friendship and loyalty.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): The Sea Goat can benefit from an extra dose of self-confidence to unsettle your detractors, giving you the advantage of putting on a strong presentation of your position.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): You might want to ask a friend or relative for advice on an ongoing personal matter. But be careful not to give away information you might later wish you had kept secret.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Use the weekend for a creativity break to help restore your spiritual energy. Once that’s done, you’ll be back and more than ready to tackle whatever challenge you need to face.
BORN THIS WEEK: You get great joy out of creating beautiful things and sharing them with others who appreciate them.
