Select Sun sign:
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Consistent hard work that you had put in earlier will get you what you want. Benefits through government are indicated. A sincere approach in life always gets rewarded. You must not feel that you get little, and late, in comparison to the hard work you put in. Life has its own pattern. A new association with a person of the opposite sex overwhelms you and you can hardly concentrate on work and other things that are important for you.
