TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone may try to be helpful today, but if you let others meddle in your private affairs you can expect it to backfire. Stick up for the ones you love and make your own choices.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Hard work will bring you the best results, so don’t hesitate to put in overtime if necessary. Someone you think may help you get ahead is probably only interested in using your ideas for his or her own gain.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have so much going for you; don’t miss out because you are in an emotional funk. Financial extravagance due to feeling upset will cause setbacks. A change will do you good.
