ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look at the big picture when it comes to dealing with your position, status and relationships with others. Take a wait-and-see approach instead of acting on assumptions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll be tempted to get involved in a joint venture. Consider the risks involved as well as the likelihood that you may jeopardize your relationship.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Show patience with others instead of allowing yourself to be bored. Don’t burn bridges, but don’t neglect your desires, either.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Explore new possibilities. Don’t feel like you have to stick to a routine, frequent the same places or continually spend time with the same people.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Hold tight. You may feel inclined to make changes at home or work, but before you go down that path, consider the consequences.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Share information and discuss plans. Get involved in the events or activities that are most interesting to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Consider new ways to bring in extra cash or review how you are getting along with your peers. A change of heart instigated by someone close to you can start a dispute that may be difficult to resolve.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’ll have an agenda to fulfill, but before you leap in, consider your motives. Use your intelligence instead of brute force to bring about changes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A desire to act quickly or without preparation should be harnessed and reeled in. Mistakes will happen if you aren’t positive or if you haven’t done your research.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Observation is in your best interest. Knowing what’s going on around you will make it easier to navigate your way to victory.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ve got everything under control. Don’t back down or shy away. Step up and take over.
