ARIES (March 21-April 19) ••••• You are able to mobilize another person’s energy well. Try to detach and look at a situation as if you weren’t a player. You might like what you see.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••••• Deal with others directly and with a smile. What seems OK right now actually might not be. Work directly with a close associate. The end results will be better.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• Keep pushing for different answers and solutions. Though you might not be the final person making the decision, ask questions.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••• Do your work, but also diligently court someone’s favor. On some level, you might be resentful for having to play this game.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• Express an unusual playfulness, which might be stemming from too much energy. Try to plug some of this energy into your work, if you can.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••• If you can work from home, do. You could feel more relaxed in this atmosphere. Spend some time dealing with a domestic or personal issue before diving into what you must do.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) •• Know when you should back off or do something differently. Your humor and understanding might not be appreciated. Someone needs to see the issue by him- or herself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• Don’t lose your focus, and you will be much happier. A friend or loved one pushes hard to get his or her way. Honor your own priorities, if possible.
