LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - If overly protective of your self-interests, you are likely to overreact and do things in a manner that might outsmart yourself. By doing so, the chances for happiness or gain are slim.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Unless you treat others in a respectful manner, you can expect to lose their support. As a result, in situations that require effective allies, you will come out on the short end of the stick.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - It's good to think big, but if your expectations are unreasonably high, you might let an opportunity slip past, believing there are much larger gains to come. Assess situations realistically.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - Watch your level of intensity, and be doubly tactful and diplomatic. Unfortunately, your temperament could allow even a small infraction to be seriously blown out of proportion
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Even though your goal may be to make significant achievements, nothing will be handed on a silver platter. In fact, you might have to struggle a bit harder than usual.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Just because some friends have a different philosophy of life than you do, it's no reason to impose your opinions on them. It won't bring them to your way of thinking, but it will create dissension.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - If you're itching to take a gamble, take it on yourself and not on an untested entity. The likelihood of making a bad choice is far greater than usual, and it can do much harm.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Be on guard because your loyalty toward a good friend could be put to the test. Stop and consider the consequences, and then do what's right, regardless of the difficulties involved.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) - Don't expect those in your charge to perform up to their fullest abilities, especially if you are far too critical of their efforts. Instead of encouraging them, it will merely deflate their energies.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Nobody is perfect, so until you can be so yourself, don't expect perfection in anyone else, either. This not only involves how well someone does a job but how the individual behaves.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Wait until everyone has a chance to sleep on a family problem before trying to resolve it. Time not only gives everyone a chance to come up with a solution but tones down tempers as well.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Your sense of humor helps prevent you from taking life too seriously, yet this admirable quality might not be operating well at this time and you could respond in the opposite manner.
