ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep your feet on the ground. You can go chasing rainbows if it makes you happy this week, but it won’t get you anywhere. Focus your energies on tangible, realistic goals rather than flights of fancy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Watch your step this week. Even with the most innocent of intentions, your words could be misconstrued by people with a chip on their shoulder. Be on your best behavior when meeting new people.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): No good deed goes unpunished. You may wonder why you do all that hard work this week. Perseverance pays off. A few kind words from a friend or colleague will be all it takes to make your day.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make sure all get their fair share. You can have the biggest piece of the pie, but others may hold it against you. Remain equitable when dividing the spoils and you’ll keep everyone happy this week.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Stay casual. Avoid getting into deep, philosophical conversations. Being too frank about a subject could create hurt feelings this week. Entertain yourself with a backyard gathering of close friends.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Walk before you run. Don’t try to rush a romance to the next level before you’ve really gotten to know your partner. In the week ahead, take words at face value and don’t look for hidden agendas.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Stick with what you know. You can earn Brownie points by taking on extra responsibilities and being a go-getter. Show just how well you can handle your fields of expertise in the week to come.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): When faced with a yes or no decision, you answer should be maybe. Don’t commit to anything in the week ahead. Hold off on making major decisions or purchases unless you are sure of results.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. 21): If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. An elder colleague’s methods seem dated but they get results. That’s all that matters this week. Take good advice to heart as it may provide the answers you need.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The best is yet to come. Don’t let a minor downturn get you down, as the horizon will grow brighter in the week to come. Make sure finances are in order but avoid making any major changes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Cover all the bases. Leave nothing to chance in the week ahead and make sure you’ve prepared for every possible outcome. The attention to detail you pay now will make life that much easier in the future.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Bite your tongue. It may be easy to find fault with situations, but that doesn’t mean you should tell everyone about it. Keep your attention focused on your own undertakings and projects this week.
