ARIES (March 21-April 19): Curb any emotional feelings until you have time to consider all the ins and outs of a situation. The less impulsive you are, the better.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are in the zone and ready to take on the world. Embrace life and make adjustments to your lifestyle that will accommodate your plans.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Before you take charge, make sure your motives are honorable. Charm alone will not get you what you want.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Calm down and make the most of your day. Getting upset over something you can’t change is fruitless. Put your energy into work, productivity and creative solutions.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If you must make changes, do so for the right reasons. Common sense, not emotional madness, should be behind every move you consider.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Fast talk will get you into trouble. Don’t be too willing to say “yes” to a plea for help until you find out exactly what’s expected of you and why.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You’ll be prone to take on too much if you don’t take the time to consider what’s actually in your best interests. Make careful decisions and don’t be impulsive.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Investigate your options and you’ll discover a way to turn something that interests you into a viable solution to any foreseeable problem that you might encounter along the way. You’ll attract unusual input from someone you least expect.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotions and finances won’t be a good mix. You won’t be thinking clearly when dealing with children, money or personal contracts.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t venture too far from home. You’ll get more done if you take care of domestic responsibilities.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Get rid of emotional debt. Let go of whatever is stifling your desire to explore new beginnings.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Trust your intuition and question what others tell you. Avoid anyone showing signs of inconsistency or looking for someone to take over his or her responsibilities.
