TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Love makes the world go around. In the upcoming week, you are at your best when you have a special someone by your side. Family gatherings will give you a chance to demonstrate your affection.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Clear out the clutter from your environment, as well as in your head. Guests might be expected in the week to come, so you should straighten up the living room early. You must stay on track mentally, as well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Impeccable you. You are willing to spend an extra few minutes in front of the mirror to ensure that you look your best in the week ahead. Your love nature is in fine fiddle; tune it up and turn them on.

IF NOVEMBER 20 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your busy social calendar might prevent you from concentrating on money and your career until after the first of the year. Mid-January offers a favorable period during which you can make sound business decisions and apply your street smarts to smart financial maneuvering. Romance might be a keynote after the new year, as well, but you might encounter a passing fling instead of the real thing. May and June are the two worst months in which to make crucial decisions or changes. Wait for the beginning of July instead.
