ARIES (March 21-April 19): Love creates bridges. By being respectful and proper you can build a bridge that connects you with others. In the week ahead, you might be wise to examine and take to heart any criticisms from loved ones.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Use extra spit and polish. Past carelessness may be brought to your attention this week. When you give little or no help to others or put obstacles in their path, the universe gives little help to you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Forgiveness works once, maybe twice, but three times is pushing it. In the week to come, you might find that you can't take anyone or anything for granted and you may be taken to task for mistakes.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Some people seem to push your buttons. In the first half of the week, you should muster every ounce of tolerance for the grumpy gremlins that pass through your life and overlook thoughtless unkindness.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Too tired to be inspired. Ambitions may be rattling your cage and making you feel that it is time to exert your powers, but you will find there is a lack of enthusiasm from others in the first half of the week.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You can get a contusion from confusion. In the week ahead, you must be crystal clear or risk causing an argument. It might be difficult to concentrate, but you must focus on economy and thriftiness.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When you hurt others, you actually hurt yourself. You might be thrown in contact with someone who hides their enmity. In the upcoming week, turn negative circumstances or forces into positive ones.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): "Nothing ventured, nothing gained," is a fabulous motto. However it is possible that you must attend to a few loose ends in the first half of the week before you can move forward or spread your wings.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In a highly results-oriented atmosphere, you must strive harder to impress others. You won't attain greatness from a mere few hours of work this week You must persevere to overcome obstacles.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Tiptoe through a briar patch of conflicting data to find the tulips. It is necessary to maintain a delicate balance between insensitive criticism and wise discrimination during the week ahead.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't lose your cool or judge others too harshly during the beginning of this week. Keep your pennies in the piggy bank and wait for a better time to make major purchases or financial decisions.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A sheathed sword is still sharp. Just because you can't see the anger doesn't mean someone is not offended. Tread carefully in the first part of the week when people might easily misunderstand your actions.
IF JULY 24 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: The next few weeks may be trying if you ignore logic, but the good news is that you have plenty of energy to handle added responsibilities and a more ambitious learning curve. Exercise or any kind of physical activity will help boost your overall vitality between now and August. You can expect a surge of romantic activity in September and could even meet a special person or, because your best qualities are more obvious, you could land the job of your dreams. That is the best time to promote your business ideas, ask for favors, or launch plans. In October, don't get sidetracked by a somewhat dubious opportunity that could complicate your life.
