LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - Unless you treat your assignments or responsibilities with seriousness, your efficacy will be substantially reduced. Certain things can be handled lightly, but not your work.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - No one is trying to deprive you of having a little fun, but it is important to spend more time accomplishing something substantial than relaxing or playing. Keep things in perspective.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - A show of envy doesn't become you. It doesn't matter that you believe an undeserving person gets all the breaks. It hurts you, not him or her.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Stop fantasizing about those big ideas and start taking positive action with regard to something constructive that can make a difference. Begin small, and let it grow.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Unless you are on your toes, you could end up buying the pitch instead of analyzing the product. Your usual instincts for spotting a bargain are likely to be inoperative at this time.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Be candid, especially with those deemed to be important in your life. Playing games to hide something will arouse suspicion and create disunity.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) - Analyze the reason for singling out and helping one acquaintance instead of another. Usually, the only reason you seek out one person in particular is to satisfy an ulterior motive.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Budget your day wisely, and don't waste precious time on insignificant interests or activities. A lack of scheduling could severely limit your productivity and effectiveness.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Friends or associates will notice if you don't honor your word, so be on guard. Your standing in the eyes of peers could be a bit fragile.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) - Take plenty of time to schedule and map out a course of action. Vagueness will mean the loss of precious time, while poor judgment will bring about the dissolution of your plans.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - If you get careless or let down your guard, you and your commercial involvements could get sidetracked. Don't open the door for someone to take advantage of you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - Generally, you're careful about forming an alliance or partnership with a total stranger; however, a conniver who plans to use you for his or her purposes might pull a fast one.
