TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20): One bump in the road shouldn’t spoil the whole trip. In the week ahead cross cur­rents and mi­nor jeal­ousies could spoil the har­mony be­tween you and oth­ers un­less you are care­ful. GEM­INI (May 21-June 20): You are nim­ble and quick and can han­dle men­tal work with ease. Nev­er­the­less, re­sist be­ing pushed into mak­ing snap de­ci­sions. This week your best bet is to steer clear of dis­putes. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Pas­sions could run hot and heavy as this week un­folds. It will take a wise per­son to avoid be­ing caught up in the tur­moil. Be skep­ti­cal of at­trac­tive fi­nan­cial in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Too much money is good be­cause you can al­ways give it away, but too much am­bi­tion can cause you to of­fend other peo­ple. In the week ahead avoid throw­ing your weight around. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Drive and de­ter­mi­na­tion is an ad­mirable thing but you may wish to stay out of the lime­light and avoid crit­i­cism in the week ahead. You will be at your best work­ing hard be­hind the scenes.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You de­serve a pat on the back for reach­ing your goals and should re­ward your­self for a job well done. How­ever, your in­ner Scrooge might pre­fer to econ­o­mize in the week ahead. SCOR­PIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Prun­ing branches shapes fu­ture growth. Put im­por­tant fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions on the back burner and re­main thrifty in the week ahead. It isn’t har­vest time; pre­pare for more sta­bil­ity.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Frus­tra­tions fuel feuds. You may be over­whelmed by work or obli­ga­tions lose your cool. Be as nice as you can and avoid tak­ing on ex­tra re­spon­si­bil­i­ties early in the week. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You will only see how far you have gone when you reach the top of the moun­tain. In the week ahead you may not re­al­ize how much you have ac­com­plished through sheer tenac­ity. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): True friends may show their col­ors as this week un­folds. Some you deal with may be pushy, petu­lant and pro­voked when un­der pres­sure. Be pa­tient with loved ones un­til stresses sub­side.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Some jobs and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties may be te­dious, but once they are done they are fin­ished. In the week ahead don’t be­gin any­thing new un­til you have wrapped up all the loose ends.
