ARIES (March 21-April 19) - When performing a complicated task, don't use any new procedures or unfamiliar tools without totally schooling yourself on how to do the job. If you're unprepared, you could make a costly mistake.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - You will defeat yourself and your purposes if you are unduly possessive of the one you love. The harder you grasp someone, the more that person will try to pull away. No one likes to be restrained.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - When in the presence of family members or outsiders, make it a point to keep your differences with your mate to yourself. Wait to air things out in private.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) - If something is bugging you or if someone says something disturbing, it is better to keep your feelings to yourself. Caustic comments will merely invite retaliation or angry feelings.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Your most critical area could have to do with your financial dealings. It will eventually bring you remorse or a pain in the wallet if you waste your hard-earned money on nonsensical spending.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Sometimes we can bluff our way through circumstances where we could lose big. Unless you have an ace in the hole, don't raise the stakes thinking it will scare off the opposition. You'll lose.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Adopting a negative attitude will put a lid on anything good that might happen for you. If you tend to be antagonistic, you will attract situations and people who will meet your challenges with hostility.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Unless you're careful about the handling of money, chances are you will end up wasting funds earmarked for essentials. You can have a good time without robbing Peter to pay Paul.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - That lucky star you were born under won't help you when it comes to taking chances. If you have to choose between logic and recklessness, rely only on common sense.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - You could be your own worst enemy by making that which should be easy into something tedious and difficult. Being thwarted by obstacles of your own making is just plain stupid.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - A well-intentioned friend who is enamored of a deal where the value could be greatly exaggerated may try to sell you on the idea as well. Play it safe, and get a second opinion.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - It's difficult to make a wise decision under pressure, so don't let anyone place you in a position where your back is up against a wall. Refuse to agree to anything until you are free to think.
