ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Unless you tackle each of your responsibilities as it occurs, they could begin to pile up on you. If you slack off, you'll lose control.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Be your own person, even if your position is totally different from that of your peers. Don't allow anyone to pressure you into doing something that you don't like.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Try not to be too assertive in situations that call for tact. Once you start rocking the boat, you could get close to capsizing it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Little of value will be accomplished if you start making changes every time you run into a trivial obstacle. To perform productively, you must be consistent.
