CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Concentrate on what you can do to save money, cut corners and build a stable future. A unique idea is worth looking at, but do not get involved in a joint venture. Go it alone or take a pass.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your work and personal life will conflict if you haven't allocated equal time to take care of all your responsibilities. Getting organized will help you keep the peace and avoid disappointment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Taking a look at an old problem from a different angle will help you find ways to bring about positive change. Don't be daunted by someone offering negative input or criticism. Choose to be upbeat and enthusiastic.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You may have to adapt if you want to keep the peace. Compromising now will give you leverage when you need something in return. Being helpful and accommodating aren't signs of weakness; they're signs that you are responsible and mature.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you want something done right, do it yourself. Someone will put pressure on you to make changes you don't want to make. Avoid emotional power plays.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don't ignore an opportunity to make a professional or financial move. Altering how you live and work will not please someone close to you. Look for a creative way to make amends.
