ARIES (March 21 to April 19): It’s a good time to take a much-needed break from your recent hectic schedule and spend some time in quieter surroundings. Important news could arrive early next week.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20): The Taurean traits of reliability and thoroughness could be well-tested when decision-makers consider your proposals and/or requests. Be prepared to answer some probing questions.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22): Avoid prejudging a situation just because it looks bad. Facts could emerge that would make your position uncomfortable, to say the least. A relative has interesting news to share with you.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): This is a good time to begin reassessing some of your recent decisions about your long-range goals to see if they still have merit. Spend more time with loved ones this weekend.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): Professional and personal situations benefit once you set a positive tone in getting things off to a good start. Honest dialogue smoothes over any occasional display of balkiness.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): A problem with workplace colleagues or family members seems to defy even your sage counsel. But be patient. Your words will eventually lead to a resolution.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): Don’t just wait out that unexpected and unexplained delay in your career move. You could gain added respect if you ask why it happened and what you can do to move things along.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): Although your workplace strategies usually are accepted, you could be challenged by someone who isn’t so favorably impressed. Be prepared to defend your positions.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Your friendship circle expands, with new people coming into your life at this time. Welcome them warmly. But don’t neglect those cherished longtime personal relationships.
BORN THIS WEEK: You love to search for knowledge and share it with others. You would make an especially fine teacher.
