(March 20 – April 19):
A boss or client continues to make life difficult, but you’re holding up and even learning to adapt. There may be a plus side to this after all.
(April 20 – May 20):
Continue to hedge your bets even if people say there’s nothing to worry about. Things are still in flux. Details get worked out over the weekend.
(May 21 – June 20):
You don’t do well with stand-offs. Play is your way of getting things done. Your only chance of turning the tables is to stay in the game.
(June 21 – July 21):
You hoped steering clear of a controversy would preserve neutrality. Unfortunately it has the opposite effect. Speak up before it’s too late.
(July 22 – Aug. 22):
Don’t waste your breath trying to appeal to reason with a shortsighted supervisor at work. Lights may be on but nobody’s home.
(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):
Avoiding a confrontation only makes matters worse. Be up front about a contested issue. Colleagues may disagree, but they’ll respect you.
(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):
Take off the kid gloves because a work situation has bedeviled you long enough. Be proactive and the opposition folds like a cheap tent.
(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):
Your obsession with an adversary’s progress is blinding you. Put more stock in what you do and you’ll see efforts pay off.
(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):
Don’t let difficulties in a partner’s life get to you. This person has a better handle on things than you think.
(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):
A budding partnership continues to slog along. Try to be patient. You’ve been at this longer. The other party needs time to catch up.
(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):
Sometimes gossip serves a positive function – like when you hear about a matter you presumed was settled amicably. It wasn’t. Go back and correct it.
(Feb. 18 – March 19):
Just when you finish assuring the other party there isn’t a future together you receive news that this person’s a gold mine. Backpedal. Fast.
