(July 22 – Aug. 22):

(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

You’ve no choice but to welcome back someone who did you wrong.  Yet to forgive and forget will be a tall order.  Nevertheless give it your best shot.

Careful.  You know you’re just venting frustrations, but people are sensitive now and likely to take it the wrong way.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Treat a partnership warily because you may be banking on more than is there.  This person isn’t duplicitous.  He just makes extravagant claims.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Despite ultimatums and posturing, no one’s going anywhere.  The other party’s financial position is no better than yours.  Work together.
