ARIES (March 21-April 19): Even though it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it isn’t always a duck. The best way to combat gullibility is by being at peace with the world and accepting facts. Putter around the house and make necessary repairs in the week ahead.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Love” is the best four-letter word. Be sure to spell things out in careful detail to prevent misunderstandings in the upcoming week. Indulge an appetite for the best things in life; have a fabulous dinner.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Teamwork can overcome ongoing obstacles. If you have a business project to get off the ground, just ask for help and it will be finished that much faster. Keep your credit card in your pocket this week.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Sleep on it. Although your creative brain is working overtime, provocative ideas need more polishing before being put into play in the week ahead. Get advice before you start new enterprises or make proposals.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Give loved ones the accolades they deserve. Your compliments will have others responding in kind — and you’ll receive encouragement, too. Tap into a river of boundless power and energy in the week ahead.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You know which side of your bread is buttered. Spread happiness like butter wherever you go this week. Be firm about honoring your commitments, even if others aren’t forthcoming about theirs.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may be surprised by the results if you simply trust that the universe will watch over you. In the week to come, your ambitions may be up front and take center stage but romance lurks in the wings.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): More balls won’t improve your juggling act. In the week ahead, you might have a tendency to be an overachiever. Loved ones will be willing to accept an apology if briefly upset by your actions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Time will tell. Be patient about crossed signals during the week to come. Don’t agonize about resolving a brief disagreement; everything will work out if you give it enough time to blow over.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may have a compelling urge to travel or to begin a creative endeavor. You may feel a pressing need to act on your inspirations in the upcoming week. Enjoy hobbies, but don’t make drastic changes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Mark your place; it is OK to be a stick in the mud. People can use your position as a guidepost in the week to come. Do your very best and you will find that nobody can criticize a job well done.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Share your interests and loves with family members. Use a delicate touch when explaining your ideas and views. Avoid signing contracts during the first half of the week when all facts are not presented.
