Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)A lack of confidence may make you doubt your own judgment. Do not give in to such negative thoughts. Carry on with your work, success is assured. If you are given a difficult assignment, consider it as a challenge and do it with all sincerity and you will win accolades. Insecurity in a romantic association could be upsetting. It would be better to discuss what is on your mind rather than let your imagination run away with you.
