SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) - You can get a few nasty chores out of the way if you grin and bear it, roll up your sleeves and simply dive in. Remember the old saying, "The harder you try, the luckier you get." It can be yours.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) - Even though you're a fun-loving person who enjoys gatherings, the presence of someone you don't like could spoil your fun. Consider what's more acceptable to you: staying or leaving.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) - Take care not to ask for trouble, and don't establish objectives that you know are beyond your reach. Set realistic goals, even if that means taking small steps.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - A conversation with an individual who has little vision and a negative outlook is asking for a depressing outcome that could affect your positive mindset. Stay clear of this person.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) - Beware of inclinations to be indifferent or sluggish, and take advantage of fortuitous developments that cross your path. Don't let good things slip through your fingers.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) - If you close your mind to all other points of view, a disagreement cannot be resolved. Listening to another's opinions doesn't mean you lose; instead, it might bring more credibility to your argument.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) - Unless you have the proper personnel, tools and methods in place to perform a specific task, it's unlikely you'll succeed. Make sure that all three are at your disposal before you start anything.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) - Although someone you like might be a bit difficult to get along with, don't take it personally and make a big deal out of it. If it isn't this person's normal behavior, this too shall pass.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) - If you are out of sorts, it is most likely that you will lack consistency and be deprived of daily successes. If things aren't cooking, get out of the kitchen.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) - Watch what comes out of your mouth so that you don't unintentionally say something harsh that would offend a listener. Think before you speak.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) - One way to get adequate mileage from your financial resources is to avoid temptations to splurge foolishly on unnecessary things. Forgo satisfying a momentary whim.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) - If you have to deal with an individual who is in as much of an ornery mood as you are, look out. When two angry forces meet, there is usually a war that comes to pass.
