Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You can afford to be a bit adventurous with work proposals from overseas, which are also likely to materialize. Watch out for minor snags. Though you are doing well for yourself you may be tempted by this offer. It may require frequent travel away from home. Weigh the pros and cons carefully. You seem to be missing the point that someone is out to ensnare you in a romantic tangle. You need to be cautious.
