ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may feel buffeted by circumstances that are not quite to your liking today. You could be tempted to withdraw from a certain contest.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Even a little self-indulgence can get you into hot water today. Avoid anything that, in the past, you've had trouble controlling.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to bend -- or even break -- the rules today in order to get where you need to be on time. Don't be tempted to do this more than once!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll learn much from someone who plays the role of "oracle" today. Before nightfall you should be able to assume more control.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are perfectly happy to work with things as they develop, but you want to have some say in how you make use of certain key resources.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- An unexpected encounter raises the stakes considerably today. You have what it takes to deliver the goods, but not until after dark.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- There is much that you have to learn about someone with whom you will be working in the coming days. Begin with the simplest elements.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll have the chance to catch up with someone who is far ahead of you and the rest of the pack -- but scheduling is a key factor.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You've not promised anything one way or the other, so you'll still have the flexibility you need to lay things out to your advantage.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The day begins on a promising note. Don't set yourself back by trying to do too much too quickly or all at once. Pace yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A personal issue demands time, and yet you still owe someone close to you some attention. You can come up with a satisfactory solution.
