Aries (March 21-April 19) •••• You might wake up with a creative bent, but by midday, it is work and more work, or errands and more errands. Whatever you decide to do is quickly eliminated. With someone gearing up for a disagreement, distance yourself politely. Who needs a showdown?
Taurus (April 20-May 20) •••• Where others are stumped, you continue to be a problem-solver. Don’t question what is going on; rather, enjoy every single moment. Work doesn’t always have to be so serious, either! Go with the moment.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) ••• If you can, take today off or work from home. Contention seems to surround the Twin wherever he or she goes. Lighten up, knowing your limits. Don’t take on any additional work for now. A partner tosses a new perspective on an old situation.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) •••• Where others might retreat, you keep questioning and trying to smooth ruffled feathers, perhaps even your own. Detach a bit, and you’ll come to a point of understanding and gain a perspective. Anything can happen.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) ••• You wake up renewed and full of energy. As a result, you attempt to clear out an enormous amount of work. Disagreements pop up out of the blue. You could become frustrated, but the smart decision is to think and detach.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) •••• You don’t always understand the pros and cons of a situation. You see someone in a different light than many, which doesn’t cause any difficulty. The two of you relate on this level. Relax and maintain an even pace. A walk revitalizes your energy level.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) •••• Your ability to understand others could be more important than you realize. Be willing to back off a problematic situation this afternoon. Let someone else make the first gesture. Head home as soon as you can.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••••• In a difficult situation where you might want to have more of an impact, you can – once you decide what works for you but also the common good. Understanding reaches a new plateau if you don’t judge someone too harshly.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) •••• You might want to question more of what is needed with a key associate in your life. This person demands a lot of time and often drops responsibility on you. Knowing when to say enough and then choosing the right words could make all the difference.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) •••• Where others get locked in negativity, you have an opportunity to see way past the obvious. You laugh, and someone else smiles. Your impact is far greater than you realize. Renew your ideas in light of new information.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• How you deal with a partner could impact the long-term. You’ll also gain understanding if you choose not to react. Fatigue marks your actions as the day becomes older. Allow someone else to take the lead.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) •••• Defer to others and make that difference by choosing not to handle problems. You actually empower others much more than you think possible by “not doing.” Someone is quite contentious at this point.
