ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A partnership will be on shaky ground if you overreact. Question your reasoning before you take action. You should focus on personal improvement before you complain about others.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Do something you enjoy or spend time with a person likely to make you laugh. Avoid stressful situations that can limit you physically or financially. Focus on success, not revenge.
