ARIES (March 21-April 19): The excitement dies down and the beat begins to slow. It may seem as though the flood of information and activity that's inundated you recently has abated. New ideas need to be digested and absorbed over time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Watch your step with authority figures, as they may be more critical of your work than usual. Wheeling and dealing will only lead you around in circles with no carrot at the end.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Keep your eyes peeled for a fly in the ointment. Your dreams of financial security could suffer some small setbacks when you become aware of important rules and regulations.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The peace pipe fails to light. Celestial conditions are not ideal for making headway with compromises and forgiveness. Don't overreact if other people disturb your equilibrium or cause doubts.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Work hard on perfecting the little details to gain recognition. Although you can be very shrewd about business matters, there may be hidden defects in a new purchase that could trip you up.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Social outings are likely to be short and sweet. A quick stop at the local pub or watering hole may be all you have time for. Career demands may keep you on your toes into the late evening.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't cut corners to meet a deadline. It's better to stay late and finish things perfectly than to do a shoddy job. It may be tempting to leave a minor task undone, but this could result in reprisals.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): That carefree feeling of utter confidence that tells you things will work out in the end may fail you today. Avoid making large purchases on credit or entering into agreements that could come with onerous obligations.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You might think someone is holding a grudge, but the fact is, a grudge is holding you. You can be held back by your preconceived notions or by the feeling that you must act to defend yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A penny saved is as good as a penny earned. You may be more generous than your friends because you can visualize future possibilities. At the same time, you refuse to waste present resources.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Hold off on forging crucial financial agreements, but don't be afraid to use some charm to get your way at home. Someone might become defensive if you push too hard to come to terms now.
IF JUNE 6 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You may march to the beat of a romantic drummer in the next 6-8 weeks. This could be a good time for a vacation or to write down inspiring ideas. In August and September, guard against impulsive behavior and remember that the grass isn't greener on the other side of the fence. You may feel the need for love and be willing to do anything to obtain it, but you could disrupt your life in the process. If you meet someone new this year or have an itch to change jobs, wait until January to act. That's when you'll be wiser and luckier and can make an informed decision.
