ARIES (March 21-April 19): If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Things have been running smoothly lately and there's no need to shake things up with unnecessary changes. What has worked for you in the past will keep working for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get to the point. You will only create animosity if you skirt an issue. Your best bet is to get right to the heart of the matter and not mince words. Be a professional and leave childish games at home.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Leave nothing to chance. You will succeed by being on top of the facts and keeping all your bases covered. Go the extra mile to ensure there are no pitfalls that could hamper your progress.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Decide to be indecisive. The pressure you feel to make a final choice is someone else's issue, not yours. Don't rush to a foolish judgment simply to make another person happy. Wait for more information.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You may be your own worst enemy. The only thing that will keep you from achieving your goals is doubt. Maintain a positive attitude and you will find the most monumental challenge a bit easier to handle.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Exercise your mind. Find creative ways to test your mental prowess through crosswords, puzzles or trivia. An item may have caught your eye, but you'll be happier by keeping the money in your pocket.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Follow your head, not your heart. Your intuitions are slightly off and consequently going with your gut instinct will yield poor results. Items that you must have today will not seem as attractive tomorrow.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Stay the course. Your impatience with a financial situation may have you ready to make drastic changes. Don't undo what you've built so far by rocking the boat right now. Things will improve shortly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't let extra cash burn a hole in your pocket. Although you have the means to acquire what you desire, this may not be the time to spend money. When faced with a social invitation, your best bet is to respectfully decline.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Like Sgt. Friday used to say, "Just the facts." Don't let others waste your time by beating around the bush, get right to the heart of the matter. Know the difference between the essential and nonessential.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Take it with a grain of salt. Accept nothing at face value. Do a little probing and research to delve beneath the surface of an offer. Just because friends mean well doesn't mean that they can't be wrong.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Roll with the punches. There's no point in dwelling on your failures, all you can do is use the experience to make your next endeavor a success. The fires of romance may be doused this evening.
IF DECEMBER 29 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Spend the next four to six weeks gathering your resources and momentum. Although your ambitions might be a priority, you will achieve more success by waiting until late February to launch key initiatives and business plans. That is when your judgment is at its best and when well-wishers will lend a helping hand. Your career or financial plans seem to be going great in April, but unexpected changes can distract you. Wait until June to interview for a new job, make crucial commitments or meet up with Mr. or Ms. Right while your most attractive qualitative are shining bright.
