ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're not the type of person who allows your companions to do your thinking for you, and you're not apt to begin doing so. Stick to placid, undemanding pals to hang out with.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you increase the amount of work you have to do, you'll not only make yourself extremely unhappy, but also throw off your focus and lower your productivity as a whole.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Normally, you're not a possessive person, but today for some reason you could start to make unreasonable demands upon others. Get back in character.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Sometimes it's wise to steer a middle course, but not so if you're working on something complicated that demands exactitude. Do what you have to, and don't dilute your effectiveness.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There are lots of times when kind words and gentle directives work far better than demands, and today could be one of them. A soft approach not only turns away wrath, it assures compliance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you simply don't care, you aren't likely to manage your resources as prudently as would your friendly banker. That's probably the reason why some have so much money and you don't.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be careful if someone with whom you're involved is as determined to have his or her own way as you are. Unfortunately, it is a formula that is likely to promote a huge clash.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Even if it is extremely difficult for you to 'fess up to your mistakes, defending them won't do anything for you. Don't make excuses -- make amends.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- All those productive intentions of yours will quickly go by the boards if someone starts enticing you to participate in something fun. If it's your day off and you can afford to relax, let 'er rip.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It might be best for you not to establish any kind of objective that requires a lot of work. Your tenacity and patience aren't likely to be up to snuff at present.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don't let yourself get involved with anyone who makes you feel uncomfortable. Chances are there is plenty of justification for your feelings.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- There is a strong possibility that the gauge you are using to establish the loyalty and trustworthiness of a prospective friend may be way off. Take a second look.
