Your sign is in a balancing act this week as friends pull one way and professional contacts pull the other. Several planets are helping you do whatever you set your mind to, so make sure to be very clear about your intentions. Meanwhile, thoughts of foreign travel, languages, and people spark your kitchen creativity. Try Brazilian black bean stew, which combines beans with ham, sausage, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, bell pepper, mango, and cilantro. Serve with spinach salad and warm bread.
