ARIES (March 21-April 19): Social events or a networking group will enable you to show your talents. You have something going for you that will separate you from the rest. Take advantage of your ability to speak and be heard as well as being taken seriously.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will have to work hard for whatever you want today. Even then, you may have trouble collecting what’s rightfully yours. Keep this a low-key day with plenty of time to deal with the problems that are likely to arise.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You will know exactly how to manipulate whatever situation you find yourself in, but don’t be overconfident. Someone will take you by surprise. Staying humble will ensure that everyone wants to be on your team.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You will have a problem separating your emotions from whatever you need to accomplish, making it difficult for you to see things through to the end. Try to work from home. Rely on past experience to help you get through any opposition you face.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t push yourself. If you have time to take today off, you should. You can reorganize your personal papers or go through your cupboards but, most of all, enjoy the moment instead of putting undue pressure on yourself.
