PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Unless you rely solely on yourself, you are likely to be disappointed in terms of accomplishing your goals. Don’t count on others to do what needs to get done.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Don’t try to keep up with the lavish spending of some friends who are much better off financially. Be smart, not broke.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — In an unlikely turn, there’s a good chance you could lack all ambition and drive simply because you want a day off. Don’t do it, especially if it puts you further behind the curve.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Seeing things as you want them to be rather than as they really are may bring momentary happiness. But you could end up paying a hefty price.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Even if you feel a friend owes you a big favor, this might not be a good day to request it. Be realistic about what you can ask of another, and you won’t be disappointed.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — An acquaintance who is a skillful manipulator might be at it again. Be cognizant of whether this person is using you for his or her personal gain.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Make sure that you are focused or you could react badly to a situation that will reflect on your career. Don’t do anything that will weaken your standing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Although you are not normally a possessive person, the harder you try to get close to someone you like, the greater the inclination is likely to be. Relax and let things happen naturally.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — In order to sustain harmony in a relationship, you might be required to pamper someone a bit. Remember that life is full of give-and-take so don’t get uppity about it. You’ll get yours another time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Normally, flattery gets an unwilling associate to do your bidding, but don’t try it at this time. Instead of working in your favor, it could lead to an embarrassing moment.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Your prudence is rather shaky and could be easily shattered by a walk past luxury department stores. If you can’t afford to spend wildly, don’t go anywhere near them.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If you lack authority over others, be careful not to do anything that makes you look pushy, because it’ll serve no useful purpose. Just be the nice person you are, and others will follow.
