Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Extra caution is needed especially if your work is of the speculative kind. Your recent success makes you complacent; you may be unaware that some forces are working against you. A tempting job offer at this juncture could lead to an uncertain future. A flirtation or attraction to a colleague or someone you know is likely and should be handled tactfully. You will not do anything, which can be termed unethical or immoral whether in love or relationship.
