ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Make it clear to an associate that he or she is not to make any decision for you without your approval. This is someone who does this all the time in order to get his or her way, and it needs to stop.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Guard against a tendency to yield to negative inclinations. Be optimistic about what's ahead, and don't allow yourself to feel overwhelmed before you begin.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Although you'll be in a gregarious mood, you might not be too careful about your social skills and communication. You'll end up alone if you march to a different drummer.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- When used well, originality is an enviable quality. However, don't attempt to tailor your words, ideas and thoughts just to be different, without making sure of their quality.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You might have to deal with someone who has taken an adverse position on something about which you feel strongly. Don't allow yourself to provoke an angry reaction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Unless it's vital to do so, it's best for you not to purchase anything that exceeds your budget. Even settling for cheaper merchandise will give you remorse.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If both you and a cohort want to run the show and have differing opinions, temporarily part company until you can agree to a meeting of the minds. Only then can you do things in harmony.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Attempting to do more than you can comfortably manage will prove to be self-defeating. Success will be denied you until you appreciate your limitations and operate within them.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It's best not to take any speculative risks, but if you're going to gamble, do so only on yourself. Taking a chance on anybody else would be foolish.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Try to avoid being unduly influenced by someone who doesn't necessarily have your best interests at heart. If you strive to please this person, you may come a cropper.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don't criticize the ideas of others unless you can offer some constructive concepts that you believe to be superior. If you can't, it's best not to say anything at all.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Be careful -- you're not always the shrewd shopper you think you are. There's a strong chance you could purchase something only to discover it being sold cheaper elsewhere.
