ASTRO ADVICE WEEKLY By Eugenia Last
ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t wait for others to do the work for you on the 20th and 21st. Once you lay out your plan, people with experience will be able to offer suggestions. Do a little extra on the 22nd and 23rd and you will impress someone who can recommend you for a project or better position. There is money to be made but you must be willing to challenge anyone who is trying to outdo you. Letting things get to you emotionally on the 24th, 25th and 26th will be your downfall. Just because things aren’t going your way doesn’t mean you should stop doing. Now is precisely when you must do your best and the most on all fronts. Step up and out in front of any competition you face.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Relax and stop worrying about all the things you have on your to-do list. It’s more important to give a little extra attention to someone elderly on the 20th and 21st. Don’t believe everything you hear on the 22nd and 23rd. Someone is trying to get you to contribute to something that is not likely to benefit you in the end. Listen but don’t give in to pressure. Someone will surprise you with his or her actions on the 24th, 25th and 26th. You may feel the necessity to do something special to show your appreciation but, before you do, make sure your motives are positive and are not leading you down a path that is unlikely to fill your basic needs long-term. Consider the aftermath.

Don’t give in to someone on the 24th, 25th and 26th who sees or does things differently. Stick to your plan without making a fuss and you will avoid causing a family feud.
