TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t be fooled by a big talker regarding an investment. Financial limitations are likely if you take a risk. Expect a lack of sympathy from others if you’ve been stubborn or too secretive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Uncertainties may cause you to question the people around you today. Don’t jump to conclusions or make a rash decision. Chances are good that you aren’t seeing the entire picture. Observe but don’t make a commitment.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Take advantage of the opportunities around you. A job change or advancement is apparent. You will make great strides based on past performance and be able to sell yourself and your ideas today.
