Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The ruling emotion today will be passion. You will feel like chatting with your beloved the whole day. However, you will incur expenses and Ganesha advises you to remain balanced. But if you have decided already to go the whole hog, make fully sure you are in the right trappings. You will thereby experience love and warmth for one and all.
