Prove yourself a front-runner by stepping into the spotlight and becoming more conspicuous. Present your proposals to as many different clients and businesses as possible. Taking the initiative will boost your visibility and highlight your energy and talent. Don’t wait — you can change your future now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Not everyone will share your goals. Avoid a power struggle with someone in a group or organization. Before you act, decide what is acceptable and appropriate to your cause.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Rein in your tendency to be argumentative today. Don’t alienate your friends with aggression and unrealistic demands. Keep your distance until you cool down. Patience and tolerance will be required.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — By traveling outside your usual area, you will meet individuals interested in hearing what you have to offer. Increase your visibility, and you will find new ways to prosper.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Now is not a good time to get involved in financial partnerships. Keep a close watch on your cash and say no to any smooth-talking salesmen.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Things may be less than harmonious on the home front. Don’t compound the problem by dredging up past differences. You can rectify the situation if you deal with current issues first.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Someone close to you will be resentful of the time you devote to work. Do your best to counter any personal problems with a plan that will reverse the situation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — A romantic relationship will be triggered by a social event. Participate in as many stimulating activities as you can, so that you can widen your circle of friends.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You have to think of others in order to avoid criticism. Devote more time to people who count on you and need your attention before you cause a permanent rift. Put family first.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You could burn out if you don’t slow down. Detach yourself from the rat race and relax. Organize and plan your day strategically so that you’re not constantly playing catch-up.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Show your employer how versatile you are. By agreeing to take on extra tasks, you will boost his or her opinion of you and bring about a financial reward.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Think before you speak. Avoid anyone who is aggressive about his or her beliefs. Tact and diplomacy will be required for group endeavors.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — You need peace and quiet today. Refuse to let friends or relatives meddle in your affairs. You can ease tension by planning some alone time to do something that makes you feel good or more accomplished.
