LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Stand up for yourself or a stronger personality will dominate you, forcing you to do his or her bidding and engaging in all kinds of activities that won't serve your best interests.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you are short of cash, it might be best not to hang out with friends who can afford to do things you can't. You'll either feel inferior or go deeper in the hole.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Should you and your friends be at odds concerning an activity, it might be better to go your separate ways. It'll serve no purpose to join in and be miserable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Establishing one set of rules for yourself and another for everyone else is why you'll have all kinds of problems getting along with others, not to mention ruining your credibility.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- "What's in it for me?" should not be your primary consideration, especially if those with whom you're dealing are just as self-serving. Give a little, or all will lose out.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- If you find yourself up against someone in a far stronger position that has more authority, find a way to diplomatically back off. Know when you can't win.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- That tendency to jump in headfirst without looking could be disastrous once again. Unless you stop and study the lay of the land, potential problems will plague you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don't be gullible and believe someone who hasn't dealt openly with you in the past. This leopard still has all its spots and is waiting to use you for his or her purposes.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Tasks performed in haste are likely to be worth little and need to be done all over again. Your objective isn't merely to give things a lick and a promise but to get things cleared up and put away.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Ignoring the specifics could lead to headaches and problems down the line. These small details could grow in size just when you have no time to deal with them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You might not want to believe it, but a once rock-solid financial deal could start to show signs of disintegration at this time. Seek out expert advice immediately.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It'll not only be counterproductive for you but quite annoying to others if you are too headstrong and unyielding with everyone you have dealings with. You can expect all kinds of opposition and skirmishes.
