ARIES (March 21-April 19): Finish what you start. Keep anyone trying to interfere or meddle in your affairs at a distance.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t look now, but you are under the spotlight. Someone is watching and waiting to see what you’ll do next.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Check out what everyone else is doing before you decide what you are going to do next. Ask questions and protect against injury or someone trying to take advantage of you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t mess with what’s working well. Give yourself a chance to take your talents to the next level.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t let the changes others make disrupt your plans. Work diligently to finish what you start, and refuse to get caught in a situation that leads to taking on someone else’s responsibilities.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Practical applications will help you complete what’s expected of you, but the subtle changes will result in compliments as well as an offer that takes you by surprise.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Keep moving. Any lag in reaching your goal or destination will cause you to fall behind, giving others a chance to outmaneuver you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Think less and act more. If you take too much time to mull over what you want to do, your plans will be outdated before you begin.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Emotional deception and disillusionment will take over if you are too gullible. Do your research and find out firsthand what’s actually happening before you decide to take action.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Personal change will bring about financial opportunities. Alter your living arrangements to suit your budget, and focus on making practical changes to the way you present what you have to offer.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Share knowledge with someone you respect. Joining forces in order to help a cause will also encourage you to stabilize your personal life instead of trying to change it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Look for unique ways to update old ideas. Getting together with people you haven’t seen for a long time will be stimulating.
