ARIES (Mar 21-Apr. 19): Truth is stranger than fiction. There's no need to put up a false front as being honest and straightforward is likely to take you much further. Don't dig yourself into a hole by telling fibs as someone will probably call you on it.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Don't get involved. Any negativity you experience during the day may be the result of someone else's problems rather than your own. Stay focused on your personal agenda and let the rest of the world sort out their own issues
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Let it slide. It may seem as if someone is purposely trying to be annoying or irritating when in fact they are just oblivious. Maintain an even keel and avoid losing your cool or you may risk creating a much bigger problem.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Not everyone can live up to your standards. While you may strive for perfection, don't expect those around you to feel the same as they may simply be going through the motions. Do your own thing and allow others to do theirs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your eye on the prize. While working toward an important goal block out all outside distractions and stay focused until the deed is done. Be careful not to over think simple problems as you may make your job more difficult.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Expect the unexpected. Plans may fall to the wayside as surprise visitors or unforeseen events throw your schedule out of whack. A loved one could provide a special treat or you could meet an exciting new acquaintance.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22.): Free up some time by working ahead. Your plans for the weekend will go much smoother if you get your mind off of work by finishing everything on your desk. Trying something new could turn out to be a disappointment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't judge a book by its cover. At first glance, a hook-up may seem to be a wrong number but if you give someone a chance it could prove interesting. Take a little time to think things over before making any decisions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't waste your time. Getting too involved in a trivial issue could keep you from dealing with much more important matters. Someone may not be telling you what you want to hear but that doesn't make it any less true.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Learn from your mistakes. Don't let a past shortcoming make you gun-shy about giving something another shot. Truly shine in social situations and hold court among old friends and draw the attention of new ones.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The future begins now. Set the ball rolling on projects and endeavors that will have a resounding impact on your long-term goals. Matters involving math and numbers will be second nature and you can easily put finances in order.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Out with the old, in with the new. It may be time to catch up with the rest of the world and give in to a new technology that you may have been hesitant about. A choice will not be difficult to make if you simply follow your heart.
IF MARCH 10 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You may widen your circle of faithful friends during the upcoming three to four weeks. Participation in group activities could bring you peace of mind, wise advice or even opportunities. If you need a job or even a referral you can receive excellent guidance from casual acquaintances. Put your ambitions on the back burner in June when your business sense is out of kilter. Wait until August, when Lady Luck is smiling down on you, to make crucial decisions or changes to your finances or business plans. August is an excellent time to follow your dreams whether they revolve around a romance or making yourself more financially secure.
