Express your ideas, Aries; potential friends are listening.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Early this week, Taurus, a work official may offer your services or time to others. Business triangles and quickly changing schedules may be a theme over the next few days.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

An oddly moody few days, Gem: Stay balanced and watch for returning emotions.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Work officials or long-term business partners may be particularly critical of your actions and decisions this week. Key issues involve recently broken contracts or failed financial proposals.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Before mid-week, Virgo, a work official or key business figure may announce new or unusual workplace procedures. Watch records, calculations or inventory for unexpected errors.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

Business or financial communications may be subtle and complex this week.
