Honesty will play an important role in whatever you do or say. Be true to yourself and to the ones you love.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t crowd your day or try to do too much. It’s better to focus on what’s most important and leave everything else for later in the week. Right now, money matters, contracts and paperwork need your attention. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Keeping an open mind and a watchful eye will help you get ahead.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You have to watch what you say and do at home and with family. Emotions will be running high, so put in extra effort, listen to the concerns being made and accommodate others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don’t take what others say to heart; favor your own plan over what someone else wants you to do. Travel should be postponed until you are in a better position to learn from the experience. Being ready is half the battle. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t let someone else run the show when you know exactly what needs to be done to be successful. There is money heading your way and the chance to change your life if you don’t let your emotions get the better of you. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be careful not to let your heart rule your head. A problem between a personal and a professional partner you have will surface. Don’t take sides or you will lose. Step back and let everyone fight his or her own battles
