Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Associates will be more inclined to accept your political or philosophical concepts if you don’t present them in a heavy-handed manner. Keep things light and cheerful.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Difficult developments aren’t likely to intimidate you, and you’ll have no trouble handling them competently. Yet, surprisingly, you could get upset over something that should be fun.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Although your mate’s point of view may be on the somber side, you’ll see only the positive aspect of things. Try to help brighten his or her perspective as well.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Even if you feel you deserve far better, try to be grateful for what you get. Do your best to keep your expectations within reasonable bounds.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Guard against inclinations to speculate in unfamiliar areas. It’s never a good day to gamble on things about which you know little or nothing.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Although you’ll have a great deal of compassion for others, you aren’t likely to know how to express it. At least you’ll know why your behavior is eliciting a negative response.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Do not expect to get more labor out of co-workers than you’re prepared to give yourself. If you want them to work hard, you’ll need to do the same.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Be generous with those who need it, but be careful not to be manipulated by someone who’s asking for something that he or she doesn’t deserve.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Putting forth maximum effort is admirable, but don’t be so determined to achieve your objective that you end up doing everything the hard way. That would only slow you down.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Usually, you’re fairly optimistic about most everything in life, but you could step out of character and be a defeatist. Don’t start playing this unproductive role.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Problems of all sorts, even social ones, cannot be resolved if you deny their existence. Instead of burying them, put them under the sunshine where you can clearly deal with them.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Anybody who cannot help you attain your objective should not be involved in your endeavor. All their contributions and input might do is stymie your efforts even further.
