TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll find it difficult to stick to your plans. Your need to elaborate and turn everything into a big ordeal will hold you back. Taking small, secure steps will ensure that you reach your destination successfully.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You’ll upstage someone if you chat too much or push your methods on your peers, colleagues or clients. Step back and consider the best way to proceed if you are dealing with others. Getting along will be half the battle.
