TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Choose carefully. Too much of anything will work against you. Separate what’s necessary from what’s inconsequential. Make a point without making a scene and you will achieve greater interest from people who can make a difference.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Not everyone will be honest with you. Ask direct questions, especially if it has to do with your reputation or your position. Charm will help you uncover what you need to know. Don’t show anger when compassion and understanding are what’s required.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Impulse will be the enemy. Think outside the box and patiently incorporate your thoughts into your plans. It’s better to be safe than sorry, especially when others will be affected by your decision. Improvements at home can be expected.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep your thoughts to yourself. As soon as you voice your opinion, you can expect to raise eyebrows as well as opposition. An argument will not help your cause, but it will waste your time. Focus on home, family and self-improvement.
