ARIES (Mar 21-Apr. 19): Play the cards you’re dealt. You can gain the advantage in nearly any situation if you simply act with the confidence that you’re holding the winning hand. Others will have a difficult time figuring you out if you don’t show any emotion.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Budget your time wisely. A full slate of activities and responsibilities could be overwhelming unless you plan your schedule carefully. Do what is expected of you but don’t be afraid to pass on taking on extra work.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Not everyone gets to call the shots. You may get caught up in a brief mindset where you feel that you could do a better job that those who are in charge. While you may well be right, it wouldn’t be to your benefit to rock the boat.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Clear the tasks off your to-do list as expediently as possible and you will free up time for your personal pursuits. Clipping coupons and bargain hunting could help ease financial burdens.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There’s a reason why conventional methods work. Trying to be too clever or creative with a relatively simple matter could result in a complete mess. Stick with the tried and true approach to get things done quickly and cleanly.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): There could be more to it than meets the eye. Keep your cool when someone close to you acts out as there may be an underlying reason for their behavior. Try to stay objective and adopt an analytical approach as to what makes people tick.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22.): Show them you mean business. Whether it is your appearance or your demeanor, you should leave no doubt that you take your career seriously. Stick to the rules religiously, no matter if you agree with them or not
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Some things are just out of your hands. There’s no point in fretting over a situation that you can’t control, even if you don’t like how it turns out. A negative could eventually turn into a positive if you change your perspective.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t be a pushover. It’s admirable to be charitable to someone in need, but it’s quite another story when someone is just taking advantage of your good nature. Use your best judgment with others and know when to draw the line.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. Put the brakes on a situation if you find yourself traveling down an all too familiar road. Financial endeavors that pressure you to act quickly should be passed upon.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Things might not turn out as you planned. Don’t expect everyone to simply fall in line with your latest ideas as they may have points of concern that you didn’t anticipate. Exchange your thoughts with others but avoid trying to lay down the law.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Marching to a different drummer could leave you standing by yourself. Be mindful of what others may feel when you take drastic action as everyone may not be as appreciative as you think. Get some feedback before setting wheels into motion.
IF APRIL 20 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your circle of friends can become a noose around your neck if you neglect your duties and responsibilities during the next three to four weeks. Put group activities on the back burner and focus on getting things done in May that require your full attention and enthusiasm. In July you will have more time for social outings and can easily widen your network of friends. August is an excellent time to pursue money making activities and use shrewdness to get the best deal possible. Your judgment is at its best in September making it a good time to make irrevocable decisions or to launch crucial plans. AMX-2017-03-16T19:00:00-04:00
