ARIES (March 21-April 19): Personal gains can be made if you are willing to change your direction or the way you approach what you are currently doing. Discussing future plans with someone you love will help.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get a better sense of your surroundings and what’s important to you. Question what makes you happy and what weighs you down.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep a steady pace and stay focused on the end result. Whatever you put your mind to will lead you to success.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Whatever you need to get done can be handled discreetly. Keeping personal secrets until you are certain you can accomplish what you set out to do will spare you the anxiety.
