Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t allow any outside influences to cause you to be unduly rushed regarding tasks that are detailed and intricate. Haste will most assuredly perpetrate serious errors or complications.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you try to juggle accounts around in order to rob Peter to pay Paul, all you’ll do is create even more havoc in your financial affairs. Live within your means.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Your loved ones will follow the example you set when you deal with them. If you are cranky, short-tempered or impatient, it isn’t likely that your family life will be pleasant.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If you have to deal with a difficult person, it might be hard to keep your anger in check. It would be best to smolder in silence rather than respond in kind.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Financial arrangements with friends could cause problems. Should a disagreement arise over something material, suffer the loss rather than jeopardize the relationship.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Sometimes there is a fine line between being assertive and being just plain aggressive. If you’re not considerate, you might have trouble distinguishing between the two.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — It’s never a good idea to butt into a testy situation that doesn’t directly concern you. You won’t derive any benefits from getting in the middle of someone else’s mess.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — If you encounter someone who is as strong-willed and inflexible about his or her opinions as you are, any trivial disagreement can quickly be blown out of proportion. Be careful.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Make sure that someone whose cooperation is essential to you is handled with the utmost diplomacy so that he or she doesn’t become an adversary instead of an ally.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Don’t take something that you need repaired back to an establishment that gave you problems in the past. You’d be wise to look for a place that is more reliable.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — You should try not to be overly possessive of a person with whom you are emotionally involved. Unfortunately, the tighter you try to hold on to him or her, the faster she or he is apt to run.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — An outsider should not be allowed to try to help resolve a disagreement between you and your special someone. If you think things are heated now, outside intervention would only pour more gasoline on the fire.
