ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be sensitive to what others want. Listening and having reasonable discussions will help you come to a better understanding of what's important to others. Anger solves nothing, so don't get worked up when patience and understanding are required.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It's best to avoid a disagreement. Look inward and work on the way you look and expanding what you know. Don't let the activities of others drag you down or infringe on what you want to achieve.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Check out new career options and make a choice based on what will bring you the highest return. Decisions that conflict with your aspirations are never easy, but an honest assessment will lead to the right choice.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Have fun, but do so within reason. Too much of anything can turn into a costly and emotionally draining prospect. Treat others with respect and control excessive behavior of any kind. A creative outlet will do you good.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Make travel plans or visit someone who makes you think. A change in the way you feel about someone or something will prompt you to make a personal adjustment that results in better health.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't react in haste. Keeping the peace will help you persuade others to see things your way. Having a solid idea and plan to execute it will be difficult for others to deny. Impulsiveness will lead to costly mistakes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Refrain from making a snap decision. Keep busy and stay focused on the concerns you have and the actions you can take in order to make a difference. Taking action based on an emotional incident will do more harm than good.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep your life simple. Delve into self-help books or go on a retreat that will encourage you to look inward and make adjustments to your lifestyle. Proper diet and exercise are essential. Romance is highlighted.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Someone you feel responsible for will need your help. Don't feel like you have to take over. You will have much better control over the situation if you make everyone involved do his or her part. Teamwork will pay off.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Investing time, effort and cash into personal and financial investments is encouraged. Physical improvements will make you feel good about the way you look. Strive to be responsible and frugal.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You'll be tempted to get involved with someone who is a dreamer but not necessarily a good business person. If you don't see eye-to-eye, take a pass. It's not worth losing the friendship or your time and money.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Share your thoughts about what you would like to do in the future with someone you love. The insight you are offered may not be immediately applicable, but it will spark some new ideas.
