Sometimes, out of confusion and chaos, comes the realization that you haven’t been following your heart. It’s time to stabilize your position in both your personal and professional life.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You have to make up your own mind instead of listening to rumors and gossip. A trip will open your eyes to new possibilities, lifestyles and customs. You can stabilize your life and your future by basing what you do today on what you want down the road.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Someone may try to confuse you. Don’t hesitate to ask direct questions to get to the bottom of things. Someone will try to put demands on you, using emotional blackmail. Be ready to say no.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): As long as you don’t waffle or change your direction midstream, you will gain momentum and get ahead. A past partnership is likely to come to mind or start up again. An older individual will have some interesting information.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The less predictable you are today, the more entertaining you will be. Take action rather than merely communicating your thoughts and feelings. It will leave a much better impression.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You don’t have to overspend to impress someone. Your way with words along with the little extra things you do for people will be all it takes to win favors. You can set the pace for things to come. Your sincerity will be what counts not how much money you spend.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will tend to take on too much today so, before you do, consider the consequences. You don’t want to miss out because you are stuck doing something that will not benefit you in the slightest. It’s time to prioritize.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may be feeling emotional but that doesn’t mean you should do nothing. By concentrating on a project or creative venture, you will take your mind off your personal or financial troubles. What you pursue today may be your ticket to greater finances.
