ARIES (March 21-April 19): It's time to clear the air. An informal chat by the water cooler could dissolve the haze of misunderstandings you've had with a colleague. The object of your affection will serve as a calming influence.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The tiniest crack can destroy the mightiest dam. You may feel helpless in regards to a new business contact that is a tough nut to crack. Use your wits to find a weakness that will get you in the door.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): When too many facts about an issue are floating around, it might mean that someone isn't telling the truth. Use common sense to discern whom you should listen to and who is just blowing hot air.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Sail the sympathetic seas of romance. Curl up with your loved one as your relationship truly gels. A quiet getaway with your significant other is just what the doctor ordered to recharge your batteries.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If you've got it, flaunt it. Conditions are such that others find you are more interesting and alluring than you really are. A new romance you think is a passing fling is something far more lasting.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The world is your oyster. Surround yourselves with energetic go-getters and feed off their positive energy. Take your time. Don't expect too much, too soon from a potential romantic interest.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Seek somebody to lean on. No matter what your objective or whether you are a workaholic or a homebody, two heads are better than one. Concentrate on building the framework for a lasting relationship.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Comfort is important. If your new shoes don't fit right, don't wear them. If a new relationship makes you uncomfortable, move along. A lasting romance should seem effortless, not like a chore.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Raise the bar a bit higher. You've done well for yourself and achieved a moderate amount of success. Now is the time to go even further and plot a future that will be a resounding, lasting triumph.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Love is in the air. Tonight may be the right time to say all the things left unsaid in a relationship. The lights of love will be green all night, so put the pedal to the metal and cruise the streets of romantic bliss.

Between now and the end of May, you will several chances to make your life better and bigger. It is a good time to ask for favors or realize how your prayers have been granted.
