ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You are direct about what must be done, no matter what your immediate circle’s concerns are. Once a situation mellows out, you seem to be ready to lie back.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Reach out for one at a distance. You might be confused about a situation. Be proactive in order to gain clarity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • There is a tendency to go to extremes – whether it is with spending or an emotional situation. Honor a change and examine what is happening with someone at a distance.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • You are full of energy. If you don’t get a call or someone doesn’t behave as you think he or she should, don’t stand on ceremony. Pick up the phone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Note what is going on behind the scenes. You also could decide to observe rather than participate. Others could be overly sensitive – you might be as well.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • Your interest unites with others to make a goal more plausible. Just finding like-minded people seems like a reason for celebration.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Take a stand if need be. You have a way of knowing the exact words to say to make the right impression.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • Reach out for one you respect. The feedback you get could be more important than you think. Be willing to demonstrate more of what others see in you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • A partner has an interest in working with you. Once you decide to listen and brainstorm together, you could discover how much you like the interaction.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Others might act as if they know it all. Who are you to tell them otherwise? You could have difficulty being heard.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Stay on topic in your head, as well as with others. You easily could be triggered by others. Follow-through counts, or else a close associate could push.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Tap into your ingenuity in order to make what appears to be a boulder in your path but a mere pebble. Someone could be hostile. You can talk this person down.
