ARIES (March 21 to April 19): A colleague might offer to open a door for you professionally. But before you walk through it, be sure this "favor" isn’t attached to an obligation you might find difficult to discharge.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20): Your creativity, your persistence and your reliability could lead to a major career shift. Be sure to use that other Taurean trait, your practicality, when discussing what the job offers.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): A changing situation might require some adjustments you might not have been prepared to make. However, flexibility in this matter could be the best course to follow at this time.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22): You’re in a period of fluctuating moods, which is not unusual for the Moon Child. Your emotions stabilize by the 26th. Meanwhile, try to hold off making major decisions until then.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): That keen sense of perception helps you hunt down those minute details that others overlook. And, of course, your Leonine ego will accept the expected praise with good grace.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): Be careful not to be confrontational when raising a work-related issue. Better to make a request than a demand. And, of course, be prepared to back up your case with facts.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): Your ego might be hurt when a colleague turns down your offer to help. But accept it as a rejection of your offer, not of you. A friend from the past could re-emerge by week’s end.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): A flow of positive energy turns a work project you didn’t want to do into something you actually love doing. Now, take that attitude into your social, intimate life — and enjoy what follows.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): Working hard to meet your professional goals is fine. But don’t neglect your private life, especially where it concerns your more cherished relationships.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): "Patience" remains the key word in dealing with an emotionally sensitive situation involving a close friend or family member. Help comes your way by week’s end.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): With new information coming in, it’s a good time to rethink some of your goals without taking suggestions from others, no matter how well-meaning they might be.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Making progress on your project is relatively easy in the early part of the week. A problem could arise midweek. But all goes swimmingly once it’s resolved.
BORN THIS WEEK: Holding fast to your principles, no matter what, inspires others to follow your example.
