Weekly Horoscopes for March 26 to 31

Aries

Money issues will be first and foremost for you as you come into work Monday. Don't delay - get them off your plate ASAP. The next couple of days should flow smoothly if you're sharp. Any problems that arise are manageable with a phone call or two. Your contacts will be especially valuable. As the week draws to a close, you'll feel the need to get busy with new projects that may or may not have much to do with the bottom line. Save the evaluation for next week or later; throw yourself into the thick of it now.

Taurus

This is no ordinary Monday for you. Expect a rush of good feeling, especially if you're finishing up any long-term projects. Midweek, you'll feel a little rushed, but not so much that it cramps your style or affects your performance. You may be tempted to step up the pace, but there's no need. The latter half of the week brings bonding experiences with clients and coworkers - try to make sure that you've got strong connections, so when you need them they'll be reliable. Sunday brings a short time of struggle with your peers.

Gemini

Monday will be difficult for you, as new obstacles crop up or old ones return to haunt you. Don't look for sneaky shortcuts - you'll have to deal with them head-on. The next two days will be much better; you'll find unexpected deadline extensions and much less pressure than you've been used to. Pick the tasks you prefer and leave the rest for later. Deal firmly with financial issues late in the week. Be as direct as possible during any uncomfortable confrontations with peers over spending or investments. Sunday's a great day for making new contacts.

Cancer

Monday is perfect for networking - you're alert to new possibilities and as charming as can be. The middle of the week will see you shed some inhibitions - and raise the right eyebrows while you're at it. Psych yourself up for that big presentation or show. The last half of the week is resonant with your natural energy, and people will intuitively look to you for solutions to their problems. This comes in handy when dealing with clients, but it might be a burden with peers. Try to reserve Sunday for yourself if at all possible.

Leo

As you come into work this week, you'll be in a good position to think about your career trajectory and where you want to be heading. Your closest coworkers are important midweek, so cultivate those relationships and make sure each gets their allotted face-time. You'll be at the peak of your social power toward the end of the week, able to bend others to your will without making it obvious that they're being led. Keep that warm smile going and they'll follow you anywhere. Sunday marks the beginning of a short phase of big-time success that should be exploited ruthlessly.

Virgo

On Monday, it seems like you hand-picked the tasks and people you're dealing with. There shouldn't be any kvetching over incompatibility. Your mental powers peak midweek, so jump in with your opinion at any time that feels right. What you have to say is always worth hearing. Help your supervisor or a client get organized late in the week; your natural talent assists them tremendously and scores you dozens of points. You might be called in Sunday at the last minute. Your flexibility will be seen in the best possible light.




Libra

Monday is beautiful, whether you're working or not. Even the ugliest office decor has its charm as far as you're concerned. Midweek is perfect for brainstorming; you're in touch with your own mental depths and also able to bring out the same powers in others. As this phase fades, you'll find that the second half of the week is more difficult and confusing. There might be too many people making too many demands or possibly just too much on your plate. See if you can convince your boss to lighten the load.

Scorpio

It won't necessarily be easy, but try to cultivate your work relationships Monday. You'll feel a little antisocial, but any effort you put into other people will come back at least double. Pay attention to the fine print midweek - it will pay off when you discover the hidden trap that nobody else noticed. You'll really come into your power in the second half of the week. Negotiations and interviews go well for you, and any situation in which you need the upper hand will be yours. Sunday brings a career challenge that you might have to take extra time to handle.

Sagittarius

Spread the word early in the week, no matter what you need to say. You've got the chops to express yourself precisely, so now's the time to get it out there. Tuesday or Wednesday brings an opportunity to help shape long-term strategy, but you don't have to worry about getting every last detail exactly right. As the week grinds to a halt, so do your people skills - but don't panic. If you're flexible, you can still win hearts and minds simply by agreeing when you'd ordinarily shrug your shoulders. Sunday is a good time to start business trips.

Capricorn

The week starts very well for you, and you should be feeling good about where you are and where you think you're headed. Watch out for people who talk a lot but don't have much to say during the first half of the week. Try to get them to cut to the chase - or cut them off. New ideas are important in the second half of the week, and it might be up to you to evaluate them. Whatever happens, make sure that you're open to all possibilities. Sunday might be problematic if you have to deal with anything work related.

Aquarius

Long-timers have a lot to tell you on Monday, so try to act interested. It could be that one holds an important clue for you. Midweek looks promising - you could round up a whole new slate of clients or candidates for that important position. Keep an eye out for connections that spark over small things. Stick to your routine later in the week; that regularity will be the key to helping you deal with the stresses that inevitably crop up. Sunday brings an opportunity for a compromise that will work to your advantage.

Pisces

E-mail or phone calls are vital on Monday, so be sure to stay connected on all fronts as much as you can. The next two days will be busy for you - so much so that you'll want to forestall any new projects or clients for a short time. Try to avoid business trips and focus on the home office. Creative work is fruitful during the latter half of the week. Your natural charm will be stronger than ever, and any meetings, presentations or interviews will go swimmingly. Try to lie low on Sunday - your opinion may be slightly discounted.

Weekly Horoscopes for March 19 to 25

Aries

Monday is taken up with conceptual planning of some kind, but if you're in charge it will be productive and enlightening. Midweek, you need to lie low. It won't be easy, but your best course of action is inaction until Thursday. At that time, you'll feel a sudden surge of energy and know exactly what you need to do to move forward as quickly as possible. You might experience a renewed sense of pride in your work. The weekend will go slowly, so you're better off relaxing.

Taurus

Someone you thought you knew well rubs you the wrong way on Monday, but there's little you can do about it. It shouldn't happen again soon. Think big-picture midweek; try to work on marketing, customer service or some other issue that encompasses psychology and the masses. Look for commonalities and exploit them. Slow down on Thursday and Friday, and make certain that you're getting the best value before making any purchases or investments. The good times really get started for you on Sunday, so take time out to enjoy them thoroughly.

Gemini

Monday brings an opportunity from relatively far away, possibly involving foreign investment. It might be time to rethink how you do business. The next couple of days after that see lots of activity - probably too much to keep track of in real time. Try to prioritize and just attend to the matters that directly impact your career goals. Thursday and Friday are all about communication, especially within your immediate work group. Make sure everyone is speaking the same language. The weekend could bring obstacles, so don't rely on smooth progress until next Monday at the earliest.

Cancer

Flexibility is key on Monday, as other people's styles will be in ascendance. Try to modulate your emotional responses and think before acting. A wave of positive energy might overwhelm you briefly on Tuesday, but you'll soon find that you're able to communicate much more effectively with people you've had difficulties with in the past. Your mind stays sharp through the end of the workweek - sharp enough to skewer a boss's ego if you're not careful. That witty remark might cost you a few points, so watch it.

Leo

You'll start the week embroiled in a small-scale conflict that can only be resolved by someone letting go of something that will turn out to be fairly inconsequential. If it's you, you'll score more points. Be wary of financial deals midweek - you might be tempted to just sign on without a thorough reading, and that will come back to bite you. New information comes in toward the end of the week that brightens prospects for expansion or other direct action. The weekend sees your reputation grow without any effort on your part.

Virgo

New information comes your way Monday that should change the way you see your business. Act on it quickly to get ahead. Despite the confusion that will reign midweek, you'll be able to triumph by adjusting your work flow to meet the ever-changing demands. Try not to lash out at difficult coworkers. They'll cause minor problems through the end of the week, but there's little you can do but clean up afterward. By Friday, you'll feel a sense of renewal and might eagerly work through the weekend if you need to.

Libra

The first day of the week will be more engaging than usual, and your intuitive understanding of people's needs will help you in customer service and negotiations. Try not to start anything new on Tuesday or Wednesday, as the projects you're working on will expand beyond the time you had budgeted for them. Any bad blood between you and clients or coworkers will turn out to be projected feelings by the end of the week, so try to step lightly. The weekend will be relaxing, even if you have to take care of some drudge work.




Scorpio

Watch out for sudden outbursts on Monday - they could come from anywhere. It could be that you learn something from the exchange. You'll be the expert when it comes to wooing customers or investors midweek, and just about any relationship will operate by your rules for the time being. New projects started on Thursday and Friday will be likely to come in on time and under budget, especially if they're broad-based initiatives. You might be contacted over the weekend by a current or former coworker who needs your help.

Sagittarius

Your grasp of the news or latest trends will impress the right people on Monday, so be sure to talk up whatever's hot. The next couple of days will be slow going for you as tiny obstacles add up to wreak havoc on your daily scheduling. Creative work will go well for you and your team later in the week, and your leadership skills will be in high demand. Your role as visionary will be well received. Make sure to stay on top of everything over the weekend; your oversight could make the difference between success and failure.

Capricorn

You'll have to change plans on Monday as circumstances conspire to trip them up. Communication will be very important midweek, and your creative side will be demanding expression. Reach out to people you don't speak with regularly and check in with them. Your family obligations might keep you away from important business on Thursday or Friday; try to balance all the sides of your life, but know that not everyone will be perfectly happy with the outcome. The weekend will be relaxing, and you should be able to mend any fences that need it.

Aquarius

You'll be the star of the workplace on Monday, and you should definitely try to work on your most ambitious projects before all others. Be wary of any new spending requests midweek - though you'll be tempted to give in without thinking them through, they will each deserve lengthy inspections. You'll do some of your best thinking on Thursday and Friday, and you might hit on that brilliant new strategy you've been hoping would come along. Work will be weird over the weekend - it might involve old coworkers coming back for help.

Pisces

Keep your mind on the future early this week. You'll have work in front of you, but if you can jump the gun a little, you'll have a huge advantage. Tuesday and Wednesday will be transforming - you might see a change in responsibilities or pay, or find yourself recruited by a competitor. Don't worry about sorting out any details until the weekend, as any troubling conundrums will stay unsolved for several days at least. Sunday is a good time to polish up your resume or CV and think about sending it out into the world on your behalf.

Weekly Horoscopes for March 5 to 11

Aries


Take the lead early in the week and show off your skills in the best light possible. You'll want to tell others how to do things right, but make sure they're ready to hear it. By Wednesday, your desire to get things done properly might spill over a little too much and cause friction with your peers. Try to soften the blow or suppress it. Friday is a great time to start new projects - or, better still, to sit down at the negotiation table. Get ready for a lot of prep work; it will be worth it.


Taurus


The week starts off with a continuation of an ongoing power struggle that you just can't seem to wriggle free from. It could be that you're carrying too much weight to really stay flexible, so consider what you could drop and still get the job done. By midweek, the bad business should be behind you, and you'll be back in just about everyone's good graces. Try bonding with those you don't ordinarily see much. On Friday, you'll feel like mixing things up and maybe blowing off tasks that have a long shelf life. Try a new approach to your daily routine.


Gemini


Monday and Tuesday are perfect for team projects - you'll be able to surf other people's brainwaves and add value to the process at every stage. You'll also be an endless source of fun, so people will likely seek you out. Midweek brings a short period of difficulty, as your usually articulate communication style hits a rough patch and you find yourself better off on your own. The good times return on Friday, though a few too many projects may be going on for you to fully engage with each one.


Cancer


Start the week with a big show, even if it feels ostentatious. The right people will eat it up, and the bigger and more outrageous you can make it, the better. Planning and strategy are especially important on Wednesday and Thursday; make sure that your group has plenty of room to maneuver, or you might find changes too restrictive. Different ideas start to crop up and may lead to infighting by Friday or possibly over the weekend. Try not to let that energy infect any new projects, or delays will plague them indefinitely.


Leo


The week begins on a high note as you hit on a new success or are rewarded for a recent one. Make sure to give credit where it's due - there's plenty to go around. Midweek finds you rethinking old ideas and brainstorming new strategies for overtaking the market. Spending and other costs should be foremost in your mind. You'll feel that you've reached a good balance by Friday and might be tempted to invest in some high-tech upgrades. It's a good time for that, but make sure to shop around over the weekend to get the best deal.


Virgo


Even if you feel that you're underappreciated, resist talking yourself up early in the week. You'll have plenty of positive attention soon if you keep up with current events. Midweek is perfect for starting bold new plans and transitioning between roles or jobs. Almost any change will be for the better in one way or another. An important decision waiting for you on Friday or over the weekend turns out to be much harder than you had anticipated. Go with the conservative choice this time.


Libra

The early part of the week is bright and shiny, and sees you getting along exceptionally well with coworkers and customers. Rack up as many goodwill points as you can - people love the attention they get from you. You're better off on your own on Wednesday and Thursday, as you'll be totally self-sufficient and able to take care of paperwork and other tasks more easily without assistance. You'll be back in the thick of things by Friday, only more so. You can close every deal, impress all the right people and bring smiles to every face all through the weekend.





Scorpio


Watch out for dissonance between your personal style and the kind of behavior your work demands early in the week. You might have to rein in eccentricities or keep yourself from cracking the wrong joke at the wrong time. By Wednesday, you're back on your feet and able to really crank out the high-quality work you're known for. Your service will be recognized by someone important. Cultivate patience later in the week; take time to absorb all the relevant information before making that big decision.


Sagittarius


Monday and Tuesday are perfect for business trips of any distance. You'll find more than you expected wherever you go, and you leave a feeling of goodwill behind. The board or some high-level boss might present thorny problems midweek, especially if you've been bucking for a raise or promotion. Try sidestepping them for the time being, then hitting a home run later in the week. You might be called in to help with negotiations over the weekend, and your opinion will be valued highly by all parties.


Capricorn



The early part of the week may be hard to deal with - sharks are swimming all around you, and it feels for a short time like you've run out of allies. You'll be back on dry land by Wednesday and much more productive than even you (with your high expectations) can believe. It's a great time for clearing away old projects and making room for new ones. You'll be more and more focused as the week goes on, and you might find yourself working through the weekend without a break. It won't go unnoticed.


Aquarius



The first two days of the week are filled with nonstop interruptions and minor roadblocks. You'll need to use every negotiation tool you've got, but by Wednesday you'll definitely feel more grounded. You might not be on quite the same page as everyone else, but you'll be productive and eager to take on new challenges. Toward the end of the week, expect a shift in workplace culture that excites you - it could be a new team member or a reorg, but it will be more engaging than what you're used to.


Pisces



If you can work on your own early in the week, do so. Working at home is optimal, but at the very least keep your head down and try to avoid engaging your coworkers or boss. Communication troubles will inflame their egos if you're not very careful. By Wednesday, you can reach out with confidence - in fact, now is the time to take that risk you've been considering. Even if you can't foresee all the consequences, you should go for it. Financial issues loom large over the last part of the week; make sure to confront them head-on.
