Change is in the air as the season prepares to transition from the fresh awakening of spring to the deepening heat of summer. Looking for balance is the name of the game this month as the solutions to old problems may give rise to new dilemmas and you may be torn between current responsibilities and new possibilities. Decisions may not be easy, but if you take the time to consider your options carefully, the benefits may be worth the risks.

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

Have you been thinking about taking a class or attending a seminar to improve your skills? The Ram is always looking for a new adventure and this month provides opportunities for just such a thing. You may have the chance to finally break free of old, bad habits but be careful not to leap without looking first.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Just because something is comfortable and familiar doesn't mean that it's best. Sometimes even a little change is all you need. Take the opportunity this month to check out new equipment, new billing or new scheduling programs you might have heard about. It's possible to make improvements while maintaining that sense of fiscal responsibility that Tanms does so well.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Has there been an influx of patients lately or sudden shifts in practice routine? Change doesn't always come easy and you may find it hard-going to adjust this month. Don't worry, although the pace may be faster than you would like, just keep your wits about you and things will settle down eventually.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

The Crab is all about career this month. Come out of your shell and network with your fellow dental assistants. You might mm up some unexpected leads, but think twice before leaping into anything. You don't want to go around burning bridges in your haste. Remember, above all, be professional.

Leo (July 23 to August 22)

The Lion may be spoiled for choices this month, but it's not going to be obstacle-free. Maybe that class you want to take has been wait-listed or you have a scheduling conflict at conference time. Avoid getting frustrated by prioritizing and focusing your efforts on what is truly most important to you.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)

Holding on to what you have isn't always a bad thing, but it can be if you use it as an excuse not to attempt something new. Is there a way to boost productivity or strengthen relationships with patients? Take the initiative and dive into new projects. You'll find it's easier to balance the new with the old than you expected.

Libra (September 23 to October 22)

There's a wealth of excitement and knowledge to be had this month. It's never been a better time to be in dental assisting. However, the sheer volume of new opportunities may be overwhelming and throw the scales out of balance. Take your time to enjoy your chosen profession. You don't have to do everything at once.

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)

Dealing with staffing issues or supply problems? Unexpected crises and problems could crop up, but they can also be opportunities for you to really shine. Be sure to move carefully and keep your expectations realistic. Don't promise what you can't deliver.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)

"Change" doesn't always have to mean "challenge" and this month Sagittarius is in for some change for the better. So go out and have fun. Expand your skill set or get more involved with your local dental assistants chapter. Just don't forget to address the practical matters in your life while frolicking in the summer sun.

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)

Capricorns are going to have to muster all their managerial skills this month. Dental assistants already deal with a hundred and one things and yet you've got the urge to take on even more. Take a breath. Slow down. Organize yourself and be honest: can you really afford to take on more responsibilities right now? Don't hesitate to ask for help if you need it.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

After a hard winter and spring of work you can almost touch the future you've been working for. Keep pushing yourself--sign up for CE courses, get more involved with your professional association and you'll be that much closer to your goals. Don't get so over-excited that you lose your focus, though.

Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

There's a lot of concern about finances right now and you may be looking for ways to increase your earnings. Taking on new responsibilities at your practice or furthering your education can be helpful, but don't jump into anything without consideration.
