Aries (March 21-April 20).
Early this week, an intense phase of past reflections and emotional wisdom arrives. This is a strong time for ending outdated relationships or affirming present-day commitments.

Love affairs and intriguing flirtations will soon be a top priority. Be prepared to offer confident decisions.

Others will hold strongly to their opinions this week. Remain cautious and watch for subtle breakthroughs between friends.
Gemini (May 21-June 21).
Before midweek, expect colleagues and close friends to be overly talkative or excitable. Friends and co-workers will address social misunderstandings or recent team assignments. All of this looks positive. Pay special attention to small bits of information or announcements concerning financial obligations, private romantic decisions or workplace policies. Others may hint at important changes to come. Stay sharp.
Cancer (June 22-July 22).
Past business mistakes and romantic misunderstandings can be resolved. Early this week, watch for co-workers or lovers to make subtle comments or hint at their innermost feelings.

Later this week, closely study financial records. Lost documents or missed payments may be problematic.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22).
Welcome social warmth and romantic intimacy. After an intensive phase of backtracking or research into past relationships, lovers and friends are willing to act on their feelings or move toward a new level of trust.

A new strategy may be needed.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Don’t let colleagues or close friends eclipse your abilities and accomplishments this week.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21).
Employment relations or business proposals may require added attention over the next six days. Expect fast work decisions and new job assignments.

Thursday through Saturday, respond quickly to the familial needs of a close friend or relative. Emotional support may be needed.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20).
Tuesday through Friday, your instinct to withdraw from business or family negotiations is accurate. This is not a good time to press for immediate or significant answers from authority figures.

Friday through Sunday, attend to financial records or budgets. Detailed planning will bring better results.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20).
Work routines may be draining early this week. At the moment, ongoing duties may cause many Pisceans to feel neglected by bosses or misunderstood by co-workers. Don’t give it more energy than it deserves. Moody moments and intense feelings will be difficult to avoid. Pace yourself and ask friends for encouragement. Friday through Sunday, romantic dreams and rare proposals are accented. Watch for fast, seductive overtures from loved ones.
