Last week’s solution
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Harshness can be harmful. You may not like an opponent but you can be respectful and polite this week even when your views differ. Someone may go to extravagant lengths to get your attention. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Rushing ahead will only put you more behind this week. Don't let minor squabbles or a tendency to fight fire with fire impede your progress. Consideration and tactfulness make achieving your ends much easier. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Keep a mental sifter on hand to separate the fluff from the substance. You may be so swept away on a magic carpet ride of romance or wishful thinking that you forget to look for safe landing places in the week ahead. CANCER ( June 21-July 22): Relax on your laurels. In the week ahead you may not need to wheel and deal or enter into new agreements. Maintain your momentum with an existing project and focus your energy on being as precise as possible. LEO ( July 23-Aug. 22): Put the brakes on spending and scrutinize bills. You could be careless about possessions and finances in the week ahead. The spirit yearns for excitement but a practical side demands that you exercise thrift. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be sensitive without becoming a pushover. A working relationship can be blocked by someone's emotional hang-ups in the week ahead. Investigate the facts and don't quibble about what might have been. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It is impossible to create heat without light. Examine the underlying reasons behind friction or competitiveness. Your reflections and insights may reveal the true source of a rift. Re-evaluate a relationship this week. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scientific studies may bring some benefits. The latest gadgets may help you become more efficient. Rather than being frivolous with cash, use self-discipline to remain within the budget in the week ahead. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may wear a lot of hats in the upcoming week. Don't be afraid to try on some new ones. Pull up the shirtsleeves and apply yourself to new ideas and responsibilities. Turn brain power on high for success. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): In the week to come you may nurture the romance in your life. Those in close proximity may be more snuggly than usual. Take time to discuss joint resources and other confidential matters with sensitivity. AQUARIUS ( Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may be trigger happy with cash in the upcoming week. Someone might criticize you for not being down to earth. Your expectations might be too high so avoid making irrevocable financial decisions. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Find blessings in every misstep as this week unfolds. Asking for forgiveness will tighten the bonds of affection. Firm up financial plans and use your business skills while the stars are on your side and money can grow.
