LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Interestingly, being free to make your own choices will be important to you -- yet you are likely to strongly deny this same privilege to the rest of your family.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Be mindful of your attitude when some extra responsibilities are thrown at you. Should you become negative or too resentful, it will make everything twice as hard on you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Should you find yourself in the presence of an abrasive and forceful individual, be smart and don't attempt to challenge this person's views. You'll only gain a bigger fight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- People who throw their weight around will be more distasteful than usual. Be careful how your handle them, though, especially if any are in a position of authority. They will turn on you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- It won't do any good to use anger to cover up a weak position. Keep your ego out of the picture, and this facade won't become necessary.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A resentful arrangement might develop that makes you the giver and another the taker. Coincidently, the accused is feeling the same way. Each will be wrong.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Of course, you can expect problems if you are cantankerous or quarrelsome and not cooperative. Being tired is no excuse for being unreasonable. Get back in character.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It won't do any good to look for a scapegoat when you paint yourself into a corner. The dripping brush in your hand will be a sure giveaway.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- When it comes to playing a social game with your friends, don't let winning become more important than the relationships themselves. Better to concede a few points than to lose a pal.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It is vital that, when striving for an important achievement, you employ only tactics of which you can be proud. If your methods are harsh or tainted, your reputation will take a big hit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take care that you don't act like a know-it-all because there is a good chance you will run into someone who is truly brilliant. It will end up being a humbling experience for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Pack away your credit cards, or you're likely to overwork more than one. Letting extravagance get out of hand might be far too easy, and you could really load them up.
