TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The information you receive is likely to be exaggerated. Go to the source and find out what’s really going on. Set some time aside to get important tasks out of the way, regardless of the disruptions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You are looking fabulous and things are really starting to cook for you. Don’t give in to laziness. You are ripe for rewards and advancement if you stay on track.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is not the best day for travel or trying to convey a message. Finish what you start so that you are open to try new things. An offer that will take you in a totally different direction is coming your way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let your own greed stop you from getting ahead financially. Be happy with what comes your way and, by keeping things simple, you should be able to increase your income. A contract looks good so don’t blow it by asking for more.
