ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look the part. Prove that you are the best one for the job through both your deeds and your appearance. Exude confidence -- but avoid the urge to stretch the truth, as it will work against you in the long run.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Everything is negotiable. You can avoid rancor and bad blood by working out a deal that will benefit everyone concerned. Romantic interludes should be postponed until business is taken care of.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Maintain an air of mystery. Don't let the other party know what you are thinking or else they may gain leverage. Hold off on making a choice until you've read the fine print and gathered all the data.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): The moment of truth is at hand. Your new project is about to begin. Expect added responsibilities and a lack of personal time in the near future. The sacrifices made now will reap vast rewards later.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Play it by ear and you'll do just fine. There are few situations that will knock you off balance. You are well prepared to deal with almost anything. Expect the evening to be filled with romantic adventure.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Keep it real. You may further your standing by pretending to be something you are not but in the end people will find out that you're living a lie. Friends attracted by your social status are not true friends.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take it under advisement. There is pressure to reach a decision, but without all the facts, any choice you make would be foolhardy. Take your time to weigh all your options even if it creates friction.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Test the waters before you jump in. It would be unwise to make any presentations before gauging the mood of the crowd. Hold off on making any major purchase unless absolutely necessary.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It's good to have dreams, but reality is what pays the bills. Keep your feet on the ground and put your nose to the grindstone. There will be plenty of time to explore extracurricular pursuits over the weekend.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A battle is won or lost in the preparation. You should take time to gather all information available before taking any action. Key insights may be acquired from an experienced mentor who has much to offer.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Today's fad is tomorrow's faux pas. Don't waste your hard-earned money on something that will be out of fashion by next week. A chance encounter could yield more than you thought possible in the romance department.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There's more than one fish in the sea. A bad relationship may have you down right now, but a new encounter lies just around the corner. Don't sit home and sulk; round up your buddies and have a night out.
IF JUNE 3 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You will be heading upstream without a paddle if you try to change jobs or start a new business in the next six to eight weeks. Put your ambitions on the back burner while you gather experience. Diligently take care of your responsibilities. By developing your organizational skills and exercising self-control, you will build substance and stamina. Those skills will pay off in December and January, when you may receive an opportunity for advancement, recognition or rewards for a job well done.
