ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If it seems like everything is going against you at this moment in time, you must keep your cool if you're to have any hope of making things come out your way. Tolerance is all-important.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Resign yourself to the fact that everything you want to do currently is likely to take the maximum effort in order to get even minimal results. Fortunately, you have the patience required.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Don't get caught off guard and allow yourself to get tapped for a task involving a club or social organization that everyone else has artfully avoided, with good reason.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Unfortunately, you may be inclined to use tactics that could end up defeating your own purposes. If you insist on tripping over your own feet, nothing will get accomplished.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If at all possible, avoid a friend who is frequently afflicted with biased viewpoints that rub you the wrong way. You aren't likely to have the necessary tolerance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's one of those days when everything will be out of proportion, including poor behavior. Don't hesitate to refuse someone who is always borrowing this or that.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- One of the major reasons you are not likely to get much cooperation from companions might be that you're too insistent about everything being done your way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Perhaps the only way to get past you ignoring sensible health-habits today is to make yourself see what this kind of behavior is doing to others. If you look, you won't like what you see.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you see something disturbing brewing between two friends, try to steer clear. You won't want to be forced into choosing a side.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Do your best to help resolve a domestic altercation that arises between two warring family members as quickly as possible. If it can't be settled, the chill will linger.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don't be so self-involved that you fail to hear the suggestions of those who have your best interests at heart. If you get too wrapped up in your own ideas, you'll miss out.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It behooves you to be extremely prudent in the management of your funds. Be particularly careful about making a personal loan to anybody, especially a close relative.
