(March 20 – April 19):
You had to choose one person over another, but don’t ignore the also-ran. Promise to stay in touch because you will meet again.
(April 20 – May 20):
Neither will hear the other if you both get outraged at the same time. Let the other party go first. Your grievance requires more explaining.
(May 21 – June 20):
Apparently a certain someone isn’t as influential as all that. It’s actually somebody else. Better you find out now than later.
(June 21 – July 21):
You get thrown not one, but two curveballs. Don’t be dazed. Shake-ups are good for escaping a rut.
(July 22 – Aug. 22):
Don’t fixate on what people owe you when asking for a raise because you’ll come across as whiney. Trust in the power of understatement and they’ll deliver.
(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):
You’re tired of a superior pulling rank whenever there’s a disagreement. Don’t argue; just walk away. This person will come running after you.
(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):
You don’t have to win every prize that’s put in front of you. Letting someone else bask in the glory for a change could result in a bigger victory.
(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):
Someone else may have the upper hand, but you also have something this person wants. Arrange for an exchange of favors.
(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):
Showing that you still have a sense of humor won’t lessen the seriousness of what you have to say. If anything it will help sell it.
(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):
Hold off a couple days before proceeding with a venture. One flaw points to another and before you know it you may have to produce a whole new draft.
(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):
You’re usually the first to grab a pitchfork and storm the ramparts, but the current cause célèbre is just too way out there. Skip it.
(Feb. 18 – March 19):
Colleagues are indignant, but don’t jump on the bandwagon. You have scores of your own to settle and that won’t happen if they get lumped in with everyone else’s.
