ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It will all depend upon your attitude as to whether you succeed or fail. When confronting a difficult situation, seek out its positive attributes and go from there.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There is everything to lose when involved in high-risk ventures. Conversely, your chances of yielding a profit will increase by proceeding along prudent, practical lines.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Although you might have to deal with a lot of uncertainties early in the day, as time ticks on, one by one they should gradually disappear, and you'll get everything under control.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you do not succeed on your first attempt, at least give yourself credit for what you tried to do. After patting yourself on the back, take a deep breath, regroup and try again.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When your desires are purely materialistic in nature, gratification is likely to evade you. To get things back in proper balance, think of ways to enrich your soul and spirit, not just your wallet.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Friends usually do things for us out of affection, not in order to incur an obligation. I doubt yours will be any different. Try using smiles, not snarls, to induce cooperation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- One of the best ways to inhibit your progress is to take things too seriously. Conversely, adopting a philosophical outlook could put you in the winner's circle.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Instead of leaving an important matter to a friend who sometimes is known to be unreliable, take control of the situation yourself, even if you'd prefer to do otherwise.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Be careful not to insinuate yourself with people who aren't in harmony with your philosophy. If you do, you risk getting involved in something that you don't want to be part of.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you have a tricky assignment to take care of, analyze its potential problems well in advance. Otherwise, you could end up running around in circles without a game plan.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Try not to be too possessive of someone to whom you are attracted. Be relaxed and generous, and good things could come about.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- In order to protect your interests and position, chances are you might have to do a bit of negotiating up front. It behooves you to focus on your strongest areas.
