TAURUS.

(April 20 - May 20):

You receive a boss or client's seal of approval. This is more than a pat on the back.  You can look forward to real and tangible rewards.

GEMINI.

Sheer determination and discipline enables you to go further than you ever thought you could before.  Every achievement brings new possibilities.

SCORPIO.

You can provoke or diffuse a confrontation.  It's a question of handling.  Keep matters light and breezy and you'll soon see that no one's in the mood for a fight.

Think about what you're truly capable of doing at work.  An accurate assessment of your abilities (more than ambition) leads to a happy fit.

Is there too much compromise in your relationship?

I offer a ton of advice on a wide variety of relationship issues via this site, through my Millionaire’s Club and over brunches to my friends. While the issues are all different and I tailor all of my advice to each couple, the truth is, the advice can normally be boiled down to two big things – communication and compromise. I’m basically always saying “more” to communication and compromise. While I don’t think there can be too much communication in a relationship, there actually can be too much compromise. Here’s how to tell if there’s too much in yours. Read more

You hate to leave anything half finished but if you want to maintain your excellent standards then you'll have to let something go.

LIBRA.

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22):

A last minute cancellation or change of plans throws you for a loop. Think fast because this could work to your advantage.

Not only can you yield on a hotly contested point, but weeks from now you'll barely remember what all of the fuss was about.

(June 21 - July 21):

You still have a ways to go before locking in support but the pledges you collect today can be used to hook bigger fish.

LEO.

Good luck buoying a loved one's sagging spirits.  There's a difference between down-in-the-dumps and bottomless pit. You might want to shine a flashlight to see how far the drop is.

VIRGO.

(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22):

You can't act decisively without upsetting people in the process. But the sooner you do what's necessary, the sooner they'll get over it.

CAPRICORN.

(Dec. 21 - Jan. 19):

You're used to being the provider so what happens when a partner or intimate starts to make more?  You learn how to say thank-you.

You thought calling an adversary's bluff was a shot in the dark however you may discover that you actually hit your mark.
