ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don't rely on any spur-of-the-moment promises made to you. No matter how well meant they might be, reality will have other plans for how things play out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A situation that has had an adverse effect on your finances is ready to be rectified. Although it won't be soon enough to suit you and your wallet, at least it'll be over.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Be careful not to get drawn into an arrangement where you could lose more than you could gain. If you plunge in anyway, make tracks as soon as you begin to see this happening.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don't allow anyone to do your thinking for you, especially in affairs that could affect your reputation and/or status. What is good for another might be bad for you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't tackle a complicated do-it-yourself project that you lack the experience and/or expertise to take on. This might be one of those times when it's cheaper to pay a professional.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You could have trouble telling the difference between prudence and extravagance. For example, after a sumptuous dinner, you might keep the leftover salad but throw away the caviar.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Keeping your priorities in proper order could be a difficult assignment at present. Try not to place far more emphasis on pleasurable pursuits than on productive ones.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Usually, you're the type of person who sees things through to a desirable conclusion, yet you might find it difficult to do so at present. Don't call it quits on anything just because the end is in sight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It might be smart to avoid all kinds of financial risk, even if a deal looks like a sure thing. Chances are your conception of it will be overly optimistic.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're more likely to tell others what to do than to do anything yourself. You shouldn't have to be told that this is a sure recipe for dysfunction.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Use a light touch when embellishing a story that you want others to enjoy. If you get in over your head, chances are you'll trip over your own tongue.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Leave that extra cash you've been saving at home if you're going out on the town with your pals. Your ability to prudently manage your resources isn't likely to be at its best.
