ARIES (March 21-April 20) Early this week, a close friend may reveal an important deadline or offer a rare social ultimatum. Planned celebrations, commitment to public events or financial participation may be a key source of tension. After Wednesday, a clear description of family obligations will help calm discussions. Remain cautious, however, and watch for meaningful change. Stay quiet: private politics may be draining.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20) Home rules, social agreements and daily duties now need to be improved. Over the next few days, close friends or relatives may not provide sufficient assistance or support.

Remain open to new challenges.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Over the next 11 days, public events may be scattered or easily disrupted.

Before next week, expect late cancellations and minor power struggles. Friday through Sunday highlight private discussions with younger friends or siblings.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) Before mid-week, a long-term friend may require private and controversial advice. Areas of concern are addictive behaviors, emotional triangles and unproductive relationships.

Later this week, a financial error may derail an important property contract or lease. Review legal agreements at a later date: revised documents will soon ensure progress.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Complex workplace alliances and new team assignments will this week offer a rare view of private opinions. Someone close may no longer trust the judgment of experienced colleagues or managers.

Remain quietly detached: past disappointments may be a reoccurring theme.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A past acquaintance may soon ask for renewed trust or a second chance. Yesterday’s disappointments may have been more deeply felt than anticipated: after Tuesday, watch for old friends to offer lingering memories or surprising descriptions of past events. Go slow and wait for clear signs of progress. Refuse to be derailed: powerful business and money luck will soon arrive.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Family gatherings will require special planning over the next 11 days. Cancellations, revised schedules or minor disagreements may be problematic.

Avoid acting as mediator: hidden agendas will be revealed.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Romantic and social intrigue are now on the rise. Before Thursday, expect new friends or work mates to inspire unexpected romantic triangles. Private flirtations will be quickly noticed or exposed: avoid bold affections, excessive humor or public disclosures of delicate information. Caution will eventually prove invaluable. Friday through Sunday, an older relative may demand extra dedication or added family commitment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Love affairs and subtle flirtations may this week demand public acknowledgement. Over the next few days, a recently shy or withdrawn friends may actively seek group approval or acceptance.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Workplace negotiations may be easily derailed over the next six days. After Tuesday, older colleagues will not accept revised team information, new assignments or creative business methods. Allow authority figures to handled all disagreements or cancelled projects: by early next week, reliable goals and group harmony will again be established. Later this week, a withdrawn relative may ask probing questions. Respond honestly: home improvements demand discussion.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 19) Career and financial decisions are best avoided over the next few days. Although financial luck is high, loved ones may miscalculate long-term needs or payment schedules. Thoroughly research and finalize all documents before accepting new risk. A cautious approach to legal paperwork will ensure the desired results. Friday through Sunday, a previously silent friend or relative may request delicate family advice.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Before mid-week, romantic partners or older relatives may be temperamental or distrustful of group invitations. After Monday, expect complex social triangles to be publicly debated or to briefly derail special events. Emotional outbursts are intense but short-lived: remain optimistic but watch for minor indications of lingering doubt. Wise planning is needed.
