VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Instead of attempting to outrun your competition, you should outthink them. When it comes to competitive situations, the race is more likely to go to the smartest person, not necessarily the fastest.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Trying to force something could be like trying to push square pegs into round holes. In fact, developments that are dictated by chance and circumstance will turn out far better.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Only self-doubt and negative thinking can impede your progress, but, sadly, that’s exactly how you’re likely to handle what’s important. You’d be better off if you can think fearlessly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Sometimes realistic thinking isn’t enough to get you what you want, and it could be one of those times. Your intuition or hunches could be a big trump card when played.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — That which you learn firsthand through personal experience can generally be far more effective than most book reading. One such important lesson could take place.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Fitting yourself into a venture another has created isn’t easy, so if you see something in which you want to be included, make yourself valuable enough to be needed.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You don’t always feel comfortable in large groups, but you could find yourself in one. The solution is to seek one or two people you like and stick closely to them throughout the entire affair.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — If you want to encourage helpfulness, you first need to be thoughtful and of service to others. Once you set the example, you’ll reap the returns.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — The only way you are likely to advance your self-interests is to deal with persons who are pertinent to your plans on a one-on-one basis. Committees or group involvements aren’t likely to work.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Unless you can gain momentum by earnestly focusing on what you’ve got in the works, you aren’t likely to get very far. Once you get rolling, however, it’ll be another story.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Don’t put off important discussions until later in the day, when most people get tired. Once you have your thoughts organized and your ideas assembled, get to the people you need immediately.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Anything that affects your material wellness and/or security should be taken care of as quickly as possible. Don’t put off thinking you can gain more with time, because you won’t.
