Change can be good if you go about it the right way. Take baby steps and pay close attention to detail. Making plans and gathering information will help minimize mistakes and setbacks. Know what you are up against before you start something new. Caution is your best protection.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Protect your personal information. Don’t play with fire when dealing with financial matters. Bide your time and make decisions and changes based on facts.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take your time. The harder you press to get things done, the longer it will take. If you let things unfold naturally, everything will fall into place.
