You cannot fix the world, but you can make personal and lifestyle changes that will help conquer your stress. Aim to be more practical and to use common sense when dealing with people who don’t share your agenda. Change begins within. Follow the path that suits you best.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Watch your back. Concentrate on whatever will help you advance. An inevitable change should be handled openly and objectively. Take the initiative and live up to your expectations.
