Common sense coupled with practical application will be your saving grace. 

ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is lots going on behind the scenes and, although you may not be aware of the opportunities heading your way, you will be soon. A problem with government, taxes or an institution will leave you feeling uncertain. Just ride out the storm. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may need to spend a little to make a little but don’t go overboard. Use discretion and stick to the financial guidelines you set. Talk matters over with colleagues. There is a lot to learn from working alongside someone with experience.
