ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

You don't need to pay attention to what other people say you should be doing. The more they try to tell you that you are on the wrong track today the more certain you can be that you are doing everything right. So keep doing it.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

Your life is governed by a cosmic plan and if you listen to what your inner voice tells you and align yourself with that plan you will find both emotional happiness and material success in the days ahead. Never doubt what comes from the heart.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Someone in a position of power has become a bit of a role model for you of late but don't fall into the trap of thinking they can do no wrong. Everyone is human, no matter how successful they may be, and humans always make mistakes.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

It's time to get involved again with something you put on the back burner a few months ago. Let your sense of adventure guide you and don't listen to those who urge caution. You don't need caution, Cancer, you need action, and plenty of it!

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

You know that someone is keeping things from you but you can't work out what they are. According to the planets they are deliberately being vague and obstructive because they know it annoys you. Maybe you should act as if you don't care.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

You seem to be flavour of the month with just about everyone at the moment and that's nice, but don't take other people's regard for you for granted. As with all relationships, romantic and platonic, you need to bring something to the feast too.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

You cannot escape your problems by retreating into your shell or focusing exclusively on your work. A relationship issue of some sort demands to be dealt with today, because if you keep ignoring it then it could easily become a fixture in your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

Try to avoid getting too emotional. You may have good reason to believe that you have been betrayed but if you let your feelings guide you there will be no going back. There is still time to resolve the situation without resorting to confrontation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

If a friend or family member tries to dissuade you from taking a certain course of action you would be wise to listen to what they say. You may still decide to push ahead but at least you will do so knowing what obstacles lie ahead.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

Travel and social activities are under excellent stars, so you can expect some pleasant trips and encounters over the next few days. You can also expect to have your mind broadened in ways you did not know were possible. It's never too late to learn.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

Open your heart to those who are trying to reach out to you. Let them know that you share their feelings. You don't need fame or fortune to light up your life, you need people around you who love you for what you are, and always will.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

What is your No. 1 passion? That is what you should be working on. With so much cosmic activity in your sign you have every right and reason to believe that your dreams will come true – but you've got to go after them with conscious intent.
