This week, don’t settle for being average. Take control — even if it’s on your own time

Midweek is a challenging one. A standout talent of yours can do real damage, and your finances are taking a serious hit.

Don’t be as slow to act as your rival. Adapt your behavior to match your skill and you will thrive as a result. Negotiate well, suggest creative solutions and tie issues together. Your low-key attitude won’t pay off.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Review the past few months of activities and decisions with all your decisions and ideas weighted down. Evaluate your results so that you are in control of the way you move forward.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Although you will try to keep the peace and be soft-spoken, this won’t work out so well. Your opponents are too stubborn and quick-tempered. You should push hard.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You seem to have entered an emotional mess, and it’s taking a very heavy toll on your sleep patterns. This is not a good thing because you need good rest. Talk with a doctor to resolve this issue.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Someone will have unfair expectations and someone will have unfair ways of doing things. Balance this out and come to an agreement on these things. Each side will feel a little cheated.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your champion arrives unexpectedly, so take advantage and run this person through the ringer. See how many other people this person can upset. There is a lot riding on this one, so you might be amused.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Try to be flexible with others. If you do not like something they do or something they say, be prepared to walk away. Use a strong, cool head. Talk out any misunderstandings with a friend.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This person is either a total stranger or very close to you. You want to distance yourself from this person, so do what you need to do to ensure that this person’s intentions are better than her behavior.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your finances are in a bind, so make an account and see what you have left. Some things are up for grabs and money will help you with a problem. This won’t happen if you feel as if you’re scammed.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Share your feelings about this person with a friend to establish a line of communication. You will be able to resolve this outside of your usually hushed nature. Be honest and upfront.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Stop being so fussy. Get out of your comfort zone and vent on the subject. This person will want to help, but make sure they realize that you’re the one who cannot hide your feelings. Be sincere.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It’s up to you to handle this problem with your friend. You might need help with the signs of a betrayal and need to listen to their concerns. Learn more about this person in order to avoid making bad choices.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your champion arrives unexpectedly. You might feel as if you can’t work things out or deal with this person until they show genuine and reasonable concern for you. Be open to all possible solutions.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Carry out your normal activities, but make sure they are balanced. Do not get bogged down in petty, unreasonable issues. You might get in the way of your own progression and prevent your improvement.
