ARIES (March 21-April 19): Few are in the frame of mind for fun. A serious get-the-work-done atmosphere prevails. You will benefit if you hold off on outings and major decisions until next week. Rest up at home and shake off the blues.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Once bitten, twice shy. You may still be smarting from unpleasant situations that you encountered recently and are suspicious of the motives of others. You may feel unable to relax your guard if romance beckons.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Fill your dance card. You might suspect that devious scheming is the motivation for unexpected invitations. If you keep your wits about you, you can have a good time without being taken for a ride.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Saturday-night socializing could be unappetizing. You may be required to conduct a command performance for business. You are better off curled up with a good book or staying home to wash your hair.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Control issues can drain your energies. Petty intrigues might churn behind the scenes. Cling to intelligent ideas and cherish high-principled inspirational material that gives you a sneak preview of preferable alternatives.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Friends may be preoccupied with complicated schemes. A talent for reading between the lines is needed to make sense of some conversations. Steer clear of investments and make no irrevocable decisions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Evidence of trickery or manipulation could stir up some dust. But you will hear some honesty and it will restore your faith in others. Learn whom you can trust and whom you can't for peace of mind.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone is likely to rain on your parade. That's actually to your advantage because this is not a good day to launch new initiatives or make major expenditures. Hold off on crucial decisions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Difficult stars suggest that you defer important initiatives and tread carefully with others. Suspicion and fear may cloud your judgment. You may take the blame for someone else's mistake.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't let passion get the best of you. You are extremely attractive to the opposite sex so might have some intense encounters of the amorous kind. Just don't jump into a new relationship.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can exert your charm within the boundaries of business functions, but wisely keep others at arm length. Someone may coldly calculate how to take advantage of you. Don't look for true love tonight.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Even the best intentions can be viewed in a harsh light. If you are tempted to volunteer a helping hand, remember that even the friendliest dogs will occasionally bite the hand that feeds them.
IF MARCH 26 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: The focus of your life has been changing and you are still in the process of altering your life in major ways. If your birthday celebration seems dull, rest assured that you have a lot of excitement to look forward to later this year. Don't volunteer to begin anything new or take on extra responsibilities in April, as the burden of past experiences or circumstances could hobble you. You might be tempted to rebel or forcefully change your focus in June or July, but you would be wise to stick to what you know. In August you might fall prey to fantasies and waste resources on something of dubious value. Wait until October or early November to make important decisions because that is when your judgment is less biased and people are more willing to help you achieve your dreams.
