ARIES (March 21-April 19): You might be ambitious but you can also be ethical. By sticking to the rules and honoring traditional values you can impress others with your dependability. You should remember to put money away for a rainy day.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Success will arrive only after your inspiration is matched by your perspiration. It isn’t necessary to simply endure drudgery. Remain open to using technological advances that can be exploited to achieve your ends.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Decision making could be fraught with pitfalls. You might easily change your mind at a later date. Someone close could expect you to meet very high standards that you could find overly exacting or idealistic.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Ride out a few moments of the ridiculous. Accept sudden changes of plan with a sense of humor. A last minute adjustment might be the best thing that could happen. A new friend might open your eyes to some benefits.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There could be too much chance involved in a new romance. A special someone may share sugar and spice and everything nice with you, but a relationship can’t be sustained on a steady diet of empty calories.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Remain full of cheer even when something is unclear. You might be required to imagine how to comply with vague demands. People may pay more attention to your words when you don’t chatter like a magpie.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Although you think you are oblivious to distractions, there may be more input than you can handle. You may have a powerful urge to form new connections or try new experiences, but business or work gets in the way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Those in close connection might be focused on moneysaving ideas and techniques. Take it easy and ignore an itch to take chances. You could become frustrated if you try to convince someone to follow your lead.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Variety is the spice of life. Try a little taste of everything on the table to be polite and you might be pleasantly surprised. Some things may be going on behind the scenes or in the family circle unbeknownst to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You may be attracted to someone or something. There may be few opportunities to act on your feelings due to business pressures or other reasons. Conceal your inner feelings as well as your cash.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You can lead a horse to water but can’t make him drink. Other people may have their own ideas and you should welcome independent thinking. This isn’t a good time to make crucial investments or major purchases.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): When relationships are at stake you can be the reliable North Star or a compass that shows true north. Offer reliable support when circumstances are confusing. If you are loyal others will appreciate your efforts.
IF MARCH 1 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: A feeling of well-being and contentment may be within reach as the next three to four weeks unfold. This can be a good time to make a permanent improvement in your health or location. You may be ambitious and focused on material security in May, but you can’t get ahead in business or make headway with financial schemes. Wait until July and August, when your business acumen is sharp and on point, to make financial decisions and career moves. Look for extra assistance from the universe in late August or early September. That is a good time to ask for favors, to accept opportunities, and when advice from both friends and advisors will help you make wise and beneficial decisions. AMX-2017-01-26T18:30:00-05:00
