ARIES (March 21-April 19): Try not to act on impulses and whims. You may be attracted to risky financial schemes and could act without forethought. You may be at your best working in a group situation or on a team where other people can offer feedback.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Acting without supervision and making snap decisions might be your best asset, but it can also be a challenge. This may not be a good day to act independently even if you feel that people expect you to take the lead.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can persuade others up to a point. Your imagination is awakened, but a loved one expects you to be more serious and may not be amused by your fanciful hopes. Write down your best ideas; they may become useful later.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Common sense is a rare commodity. Show off your knack for finding practical solutions and a partner or family members can learn to appreciate your knowledge. However, some new ideas may prove too disruptive to be useful.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t feel pressured into doing something just for the sake of doing something. Be polite and considerate with in-laws, instructors and co-workers since your reputation might be at stake even if you don’t see the consequences.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It might cross your mind that a hobby can be turned into an income-producing venture. This is something you can discuss at length with a partner or loved one, and the two of you might arrive at a mutually beneficial arrangement.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Walk the line. You might feel you’re poised on a balance beam. Dealing with some people requires you to tread carefully. Your workplace could be a great place of escape since the atmosphere can be serene and peaceful.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An attempt to bring friends in on a business deal might backfire. Some people simply won’t react in expected ways, so it’s in your best interests to keep some ideas to yourself. Guard against new entanglements.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A partner or loved one could have some interesting notions that make you sit up and take notice. Your input, however, may not be well received. Hold off on launching new creative projects.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have great judgment about the things that affect your personal life, but be sure to display good judgment in public. Don’t let your enthusiasm for having someone by your side supersede natural caution.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You might push the envelope too hard. You may react too quickly to new information or issues. People can get upset when presented with sudden changes to plans or when forced to accept new ideas.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Stick to the steady path. You probably have your day mapped out and should adhere to a long-term arrangement. Accepting a last-minute invitation or a spur-of-the-moment change of plan could cause complications.
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your sincerity may be questioned during the next four to six weeks because you tend to offer casual assurances, but people are likely to give you the benefit of the doubt anyway. You may be carefree but not careless, so you can have a great time but might not succeed in the material world, where performance counts, until mid to late May. At that point your shrewd appraisal of financial matters can pay off with a better return on your investments or a win-win situation in negotiations. Exercise or any kind of regular physical activity will help boost your vitality in June and July. You might be inspired to take the plunge with a new romance or a business idea in late July or August. Try to avoid being too trusting or impractical, or things may not work out. Use your head to upgrade your career or finances in October. You could take a pleasant vacation in early November, when you have more time to relax.
