Aries (March 21-April 19): Daydreams don't pay the bills. There may be a tendency for the mind to wander when focus and concentration is a must for a project to succeed. Put nose to grindstone and get the job done no matter how difficult it seems.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Carve out your own little niche. Getting anything done could be nearly impossible in an environment of endless distractions and pressure from superiors. Find your own private place and perform your duties with ease.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Own up to responsibilities. You may try to rationalize when things don't go your way, but you will earn far more respect by taking the blame. Pay careful attention to financial matters, as the books may not balance.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Turn the other cheek. Disagreements could erupt into full-blown melees if you lose your temper. Stand your ground, but try to show some understanding of the other party's feelings. Compromise is the key.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. You are happy to give your aid and advice when needed, but be careful not to stick your nose in where it is not wanted. Only lend a hand if asked.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Ride out the storm. Business may seem unimportant when love beckons, but you need to focus on work. Ignore distractions and take care of responsibilities before enjoying an intimate evening with a special friend.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Dream a little dream, but do it on your own time. You can wile away the hours dreaming of pots of gold at the rainbow's end, but work suffers in reality. Hold off starting new projects until current tasks are completed.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The faster you do a job, the more likely you are to make mistakes. Take your time with projects and make sure that you've done your best. A rushed effort is likely to be more evident than you realize.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Maintain a professional demeanor. There is a time for work and a time to lighten the mood with good-natured horseplay. Now is the time to get down to business and leave fun and games for after hours.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Knowledge is always valuable, but it is the application of that knowledge into your methods that makes it truly precious. Pay heed to advice from a colleague and adapt that advice to your current situation.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Out of sight, out of mind. Look for warning signs of an impending storm coming in regard to a relationship and then run the other way. Now is not the time for confrontation. Keep the mood around you light.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): The harmony with your significant other may hit a brief sour note. Things aren't always perfect, but rather than endure a potential conflict the best course of action is just to take a short break off on your own.
