Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The unusual slowness of the past couple days has really started to aggravate you, so the world better watch out! Or, you could do the wise thing and lay off the caffeine today. Try a soothing herbal tea instead of your usual energy-amping latte or black tea.

Before you rush to respond angrily to a perceived insult today, take some time to consider the source. If a waiter questions your desire for a well-done steak, calmly explain that you're the one eating it, not the overhyped chef in the back.
