ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

Avoid making threats today because they won’t be taken seriously. For some reason your credibility is low at the moment, especially on the work front where colleagues and employers seem to believe you are all talk and no action. Prove them wrong.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

Whatever you lose today you will more than make up for early next week, so don’t try to hang on to possessions that are being taken away. Why are you being denied certain things? To remind you that quality is more important than quantity.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

You may be eager to get things done but your options for action are limited. Which of course is frustrating but it is also the planets’ way of telling you to slow down. If nothing much seems to be happening why not take things easy for a while?

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

The planets warn that certain people will play on your sympathies and try to get you to do things you would not do in the normal course of events. Anyone who comes to you with a tale of woe today should be subjected to rigorous examination.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

You don’t mind how hard you have to work so long as the end result is worth it. But Pluto in the health area of your chart warns if you push yourself beyond your natural limits you may break down sooner than you expected. Go easy on yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

You are far too sensible to believe every sob story you hear but you are also a generous soul and don’t like to turn away people who come to you for help. Limit yourself to handing out good advice today. Leave your money in your pocket.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

You could take the easy way out and tell someone you love what they want to hear but that will only make matters worse in the long-term. If you really care for their well-being you will tell them the truth, no more and no less.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

The more someone tries to press you into doing what you know is not right the more you must refuse to play ball. Don’t let them make you feel guilty by suggesting that your refusal will ruin it for everyone else. That’s emotional blackmail.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

Because you have let your fears get the better of you in recent weeks it has become so much harder to make a sensible decision about a money matter or family issue. Strive to think clearly. Above all, keep your personal feelings out of the equation.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

If others push you too far they will most likely regret it. Having said that, it would be wise to avoid outright confrontation. If your relationships, at home or at work, get a little heated over the next 24 hours, make yourself scarce for a while.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

There seems to be a lot of disruption and distrust in your life at the moment but it is your own pessimistic attitude that is attracting negative people and negative events. Stop looking over your shoulder and start striding forward to the future.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

No matter how much others try to persuade you to take sides in a dispute you must stay out of it. The simple fact is there is no way of knowing for sure who is right and who is wrong, so it’s best not to get personally involved.
