ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- When you start to feel a pinch in your wallet, you had better stop squeezing it. Remember, you won't be able to blame others for all the costly spending you've been engaged in.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Although advancing your interests may be important to you, be careful not to do so at the expense of alienating your companions. Good friends are priceless.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- This might be one of those days when you feel that others have more control over your affairs than you do. If you react abrasively, it will only make things rougher on you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Although social obligations might take precedence over what you'd rather be doing, try to be gracious about your displeasure without revealing your true feelings.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you're smart, you won't introduce elements of competition into your dealings with others. There's a chance that the odds you believe to be in your favor will be woefully pitched the other way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Know when to quit while you're still ahead. You won't want it said of you that you're a person who only knows how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- When putting an important commercial deal together, don't leave any part of it up to a verbal commitment, even those last-minute points. Make sure all details are put in writing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you find yourself involved with someone who is extremely difficult to get along with, try not to complicate things by emulating this person's rotten behavior.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Sadly, unpleasant assignments will not get done on their own. It will be up to you to bite the bullet, hold your nose and take care of those onerous little duties.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Be sure that all the gains you make will be proportionate to the risk you'll take. Unless you are careful, you could have a tendency to take a big gamble on something of little value.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Instead of trying to hammer out a solution to a problem while the entire family is upset, suggest that everyone sleep on it. Tackle it tomorrow, when calmer heads will prevail.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Take care that all of your comments to or about others are not caustic and argumentative. If for any reason you're in an angry frame of mind, you'll not be able to express yourself lightly.
