Last week’s solution
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You can't always talk your way out of a jam. A passing confrontation may put you on the defensive and you may be tempted to tell a little white lie. In the week ahead you will find that honesty is the very best policy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are fit for friendships. Your friendly demeanor can attract new friends and make old friends sit up and take notice. In the week ahead you can profit from the good judgment and wisdom of a long term partner. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The sharper the wit the deeper the wound. You might be involved in a conversation that entails pointed comments that cut to the quick. Focus on being thrifty, organized, and responsible about bill paying in the week ahead. CANCER ( June 21-July 22): You could feel like a bird in a gilded cage. As this week unfurls you might feel guilty for missing a deadline or for handing in slipshod work. Make every effort to do your best so you aren't held in check by disapproval. LEO ( July 23-Aug. 22): Live to serve. Your sympathy and compassion may get a workout in the workplace. A creative idea might be put on the back burner. In the week ahead you may offer your services to someone in an effort to fill an imagined need. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Avoid sharp words and steer clear of sharp objects in the early part of the week. You take pride in being efficient and may go too fast in an attempt to uphold your public image. Don't try to juggle too many tasks at a time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You may look for love and only find friends. Your heightened sense of romance is best expressed through high quality possessions and apparel in the week ahead. Your romantic overtures may fall somewhat flat. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You're walking in sunshine. Those golden rays may only be in your mind, but will keep you warm on a cold winter's day. In the week to come you may be inspired or uplifted by positive thoughts and images. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In the week to come a poker face can come in handy. Play your cards close to your chest. Take no unnecessary risks and don't antagonize anyone. Use discrimination and precision to tackle emerging problems. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Pull with both oars. In the week to come you will get further and make the most progress by working in tandem with others. You may run into obstacles or cause friction by trying to perform your duties all alone. AQUARIUS ( Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Steady as she goes. You may be on the edge of your seat and filled with anticipation of something more exciting as this week unfolds. However, you will be better off sticking to routines. Avoid stirring the pot. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Get your hands dirty; mold clay into a pitcher or a bowl. You can take basic ingredients and turn them into something useful if you use your imagination. In the week ahead listen to your creative muse.
