(March 20 – April 19):
Ease up on the tough love. A close friend or sibling feels bad enough. What s/he needs is confidence not criticism.
(April 20 – May 20):
Make sure you’re in on the joke before joining in. You never know who’s in earshot and given how your voice carries that could spell trouble.
(May 21 – June 20):
Your financial picture looks good. It’s your cash-flow problem that’s leaving you high and dry. A short-term loan is all you need. Ask and you receive.
(June 21 – July 21):
Nobody wants their heart broken, but hearts are pretty resilient. You’ll never find out if things could work if you keep looking for guarantees.
(July 22 – Aug. 22):
A childhood issue rears its ugly head, but that was then and this is now. You are so ready to put this family skeleton to rest.
(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):
What started out as a chore turns out to be fun. Sometimes it’s life’s unexpected interludes that enrich you the most.
(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):
A partnership will prove a huge boon, but you have to accept second fiddle. It’s a small price to pay for being associated with a major player.
(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):
An aunt or cousin offers to lend a hand. Usually you decline, but accept. She may prove to be a godsend.
(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):
Friends divulge all. Your upstanding side can’t believe what you’re hearing, but your gossipy side is dying to know what happens next.
(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):
Refrain from self-criticism and listen to what a mentor has to say. You have a lot of untapped potential and could go far under his/her guidance.
(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):
You’re under review at work. Be honest about your track record. Downplaying accomplishments can be just as detrimental as exaggerating them.
(Feb. 18 – March 19):
For your next romantic interest, try someone who lives in the same state. Long distance affairs are great for frequent flier miles but hell on your intimacy issues.
