CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — You’re not likely to have the patience or tolerance for people who present themselves as materialistic or selfish. If you’re smart, you’ll avoid these types.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If something is dependent upon the cooperation of certain people, you had better make sure that they understand their roles. You could be let down.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — It’s never smart to criticize another who isn’t present and can’t defend himself or herself. There is always someone listening who will inform the person of your words in more severe terms.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Make sure that you’re setting a good example before insulting someone for doing something you think is socially incorrect. No one is perfect, so allow others a certain amount of latitude.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Although you’re not lazy, you could be motivated to do things for the wrong reasons or the wrong rewards. Make sure that your actions are positively directed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — It’s never a good day to debate political or religious positions with friends who think differently. Keep your conversations light and breezy, and do not cross swords over anything that can’t be resolved.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Unfortunately, you could be a tad adversarial for your own good. If you pick on someone who won’t be dictated to, you’re likely to open a hornets’ nest that will sting back.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’re likely to be your own worst enemy, especially if you reject sound advice offered with regard to a mistake you repeat over and over.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — The only way to avoid unnecessary stress is to establish a sensible agenda that doesn’t leave anything to chance. If you don’t, you can expect to have to perform under pressure.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Be careful not to inadvertently dominate the conversation at a social gathering, or others will think you’re a bore. Show interest in people; be a good listener.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Imposing opinions on others will evoke their ire, not their cooperation. If you want support, explore other people’s viewpoints and discover how well they merge with yours.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Usually, you’re a rather indulgent person who gives matters a chance to play out, but you’re likely to be unduly impatient and insist upon things happening immediately.
