ARIES (March 21-April 19): Open your heart. A lucky horseshoe is considered luckiest when the open end is up so good luck can fill it. Don't get off on the wrong foot with someone by being secretive or argumentative.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Contain your enthusiasm. If you think too far outside of the box, you won't be able to ship your ideas anywhere. It is time to put finishing touches on a project without alienating your coworkers.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get more information. You may be a wee bit jealous when you see that other people have made a bundle with a certain investment but the timing might not be right for you to jump in headfirst.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Overnight success may take years to achieve. Don't be too anxious to get ahead as your business acumen must accumulate gradually. A few more days won't make a bit of difference to long range plans.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When you work on your weaknesses you may discover strengths. You might imagine that you can be better than you are through sheer force of will or imagine you are worse than you are through guilt.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Where there's a will, there's a way. However, you may wish you'd spent your time and energy on something that will yield permanent results. Avoid being distracted by fantasies when money needs attention.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can never win unless you are willing to accept the consequences of failure. That lottery ticket might not win the pot, but you won't ever win the pot unless you buy the ticket in the first place.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The starting bell hasn't rung. What you are hearing is aggravation with the status quo. It starts an itch that makes you want to scratch. Wrap up current projects before beginning new ones.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Reconsider. Choices made in haste or based on anger are usually bad choices. Brooding over imagined slights and injustices could put you in the frame of mind to lash out at the wrong people.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You want most what you can't have. Stick to your goals like glue, even if something else looks especially enticing or intriguing. Distracting cravings are easily set into motion by frustrated desires.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Take your time about making irrevocable decisions. You might be spurred on by others to make a hasty judgment call, but you are best served by using strength of character to resist a challenge or dare.
IF APRIL 12 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: In the next four to six weeks, you may stumble upon a fabulous opportunity or be given a chance to show off your leadership abilities. Supportive, truly helpful people will be by your side who could offer you permanent assistance and your wise decisions may lead you to a brighter future. Late August and early September is a good period for a romantic vacation or fling. The rock and the hard place might cause you some stress in October and November. Strive to fulfill present responsibilities but don't add more to your burden.
