(March 20 – April 19):

You think you’ve heard it all before, but keep an open mind. People can still surprise you – and when you least expect it.


(April 20 – May 20):

Gaining entrée was one thing. Getting to know the new crowd is something else. Go on the charm offensive and you’ll knock ‘em dead.


(May 21 – June 20):

Mercury resumes direction. And in typical fashion it’s just when you make peace with something being nixed that you discover it’s back on again.


(June 21 – July 21):

You took yourself out of a situation and now you realize that you should have stayed where you were. Ask nicely and you’ll be let back in.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Three weeks ago you reached a dead end. But now it looks like you may have a secret “in” thanks to a new acquaintance. Work it!


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Ruling Planet Mercury turns direct after 3 weeks of playing havoc with your finances. Take the next few days to put your accounts in order.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Negotiations are finally back on track after weeks of complications. The best part is you’ll soon be holding that coveted piece of paper in your hand.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

It’s alarming to see so many prospects go up in smoke, but you didn’t need them. What you’re left with will be two solid gold opportunities on the 30th.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

A reliable formula for success delivers underwhelming results. Disappointing, yes, but you’ve needed to rethink the game plan for a while now.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Weed out those friendships that just aren’t doing it for you. This frees you up to spend time with people who truly matter.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Get ready to serve the reality check. You don’t like pulling the plug on aspirations but somebody needs to be brought back down to earth.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Mercury direct shows colleagues backing a judgment call they criticized weeks ago. But don’t point it out. They already know.
