ARIES (March 21-April 19): Make plans, attend meetings and discuss possibilities, but don’t offer personal information or anything that might lock you into something you may decide you don’t want to do. Today is about listening, assessing situations and considering your options. 5 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put more muscle behind your ideas. Oversee the costs involved. If you leave responsibilities in someone else’s hands, you will be disappointed with the results you get. Leave some free time to be with someone you love. 3 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don’t be too open regarding your feelings, your intentions or your plans. Someone will give you the wrong impression, leading you to believe something that isn’t true in order to get something from you. Listen, observe and avoid being duped. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Step up, ask questions and make decisions based on facts, feelings and your intuition. Offer only what you feel comfortable giving away, and make your demands clear to anyone asking for too much. A partnership will face changes. 3 stars


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Participate and have some fun, but don’t be too quick to believe what others tell you. Do your own fact-checking, and stay on top of the changes going on around you. Update your skills to suit changing employment qualifications. 5 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You know what’s best for yourself, so don’t give in to someone putting demands on your time or asking you to pay for his or her mistakes. Talk to an expert before you agree to anything that appears to be unfair. 2 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Take a moment to mull over your choices. A short trip or updating your personal papers or contracts will give you better insight into what’s possible. Take better care of your health, your home and your emotional well-being. 4 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t get angry; get moving. If you want to make a change, look at your options and start the ball rolling. If you wait for someone else to make the first move, you will end up falling behind. 4 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Listen, but don’t feel obligated to follow. If you have a better way of doing things that fits your budget better, stick to your own path. It’s the outcome that will make a difference, not making someone else your leader. 2 stars
