VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It’s good to be your own person, but not to the point of being uncooperative in things that could be mutually advantageous for you as well as for all concerned. Don’t trip yourself up.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Good planning is generally required in areas where you hope to be productive and successful. If you don’t know what you’re doing, but attempt it anyway, you’ll set yourself up for failure.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Normally you are someone who likes to be helpful and very cooperative when the situation calls for it. However, you might agree to help when your better judgment warns you against doing so.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Important competitive situations must be realistically analyzed before entering the fray. If you don’t take the time to know your competition, you’re destined to lose.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Someone who always thinks s/he is right, but often is wrong, might once again try to coerce you into rejecting your own thoughts in order to get his/her way. Don’t fall for it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Ignoring good common sense and succumbing to a strong desire to have something immediately that you can’t afford will put you in the poorhouse. Don’t allow your sense of value to be distorted.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you and another cannot agree on something important, get a third party whom you both respect and trust to arbitrate the situation, rather than let one give into the other, giving rise to bad feeling.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Topics or projects about which you have little or no interest aren’t likely to receive your full attention, if any. Consequently, you may not get something essential taken care of.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you can’t play a competitive, social game just for the fun of it, perhaps it would be better not to get involved at all. Should winning become too important, you could be a poor sport.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — It’s nice to help out another at work, but make sure you’re not just being jockeyed and manipulated by a person who uses people like puppets in a marionette show.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Don’t allow yourself to get dragged into a discussion on a subject about which you know little, in hopes of bluffing your way through. The chances of you succeeding are slim to none.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) — Though you may feel that the universe wants something from you, often it’s just your own ego projecting itself. Try to adopt a more holistic perspective, and live a less results-oriented life.
