ARIES (March 21-April 19): Maintain the rhythm of routine. Stick to a work ethic that has served you well in the past. If you measure twice and cut once, no one will be able to find flaws in your work. Daydreaming can be counterproductive.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Problems you thought buried may rise from the dead. You may need a silver bullet to put a dispute to rest. This isn't a good time to start key projects, but you may be inspired to plan ahead.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Exude charm and sincerity to overcome any indication that there is a lack of trust in your abilities. Avoid getting a black mark on your record; be particularly punctual and professional at every single turn.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Set the alarm; don't oversleep. Get up and at 'em before they get up and at you. The boss might not forgive tardiness or a lack of attention to detail. You cannot afford to get behind at this point.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Sometimes, business must come before pleasure, even on a Friday. If asked to work late, remain on the job until the cows come home. Have a relaxing night out some other time when the stars are more favorable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A stitch in time saves nine. When you face disapproval or errors are pointed out, what really needs attention is illuminated. Ride out a storm of pickiness by focusing on precise work and efficiency.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): There is nothing wrong with a stick in the mud. It makes a good defensive weapon. If you follow the rules and do your job, no one can criticize you. Don't give in to impulses when your wallet is open.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It is wise to hold off on making credit card purchases, loans and promises. It is a good time to examine past problems, so you can do things more efficiently in the future.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Whistle while you work. A cheerful attitude will keep you at the top of your game and promote a positive team spirit. Watch out for time-wasting activities if there is a deadline looming.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Minimize your exposure. Get just what you need and need only what you get. Friends may urge you to dive into a new project or accept a costly proposal, but it is best to weigh your options carefully.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your finer instincts can win out when you are tempted to battle criticism from the boss or grumpy people on the subway. The only way to combat negativity is by insisting on peace within yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Disagreements can cost both time and money; you may deal with disagreeable people. The celestial conditions are not conducive to making sound decisions. Postpone the signing of important documents.
IF NOVEMBER 11 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your reputation is currently enhanced by an attractive aura where business, career, and finances are concerned. Keep a pencil nearby to jot down your inspiring ideas. Don't waste valuable celestial assets as this is the time to ask for a raise or follow through with an important career move. If a new love has recently landed on your doorstep it might be merely be a passing fancy. Wait until May to make a commitment or pledge your heart as your judgment and ability to discern the truth will be stronger then. In June, your business prowess can help you climb the ladder of success.
