VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t be jockeyed into a position where you won’t be able to bargain from a position of strength. Unless you hold an ace in your hand, negotiating from weakness will cause you to lose.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Obviously you need to listen to what everyone has to say, but you must bear in mind what they think could be infeasible. Don’t hesitate to say no, if their suggestions are foolish or nonproductive.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Allocate a little time to a pleasurable pursuit if you really feel the need to do so, but don’t let it interfere with your obligations or responsibilities in any kind of way. It could end up being too costly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — There are strong indications that you could get involved in a sticky situation from which you might not easily be able to extricate yourself. Be ready to bolt before the molasses sets in.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — This is not a particularly good day to talk to someone whose help you need. If they do agree to help, the strings that are attached might not be worth it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Someone who is jealous of you whose material status is far less than yours might deliberately misuse what you say to him/her in hopes of bringing you down. Be extra careful.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be particularly picky whom you select to team up with, especially if you choose someone for all the wrong reasons. The person might end up being a liability instead of an asset.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Important work-related issues should not be based on any hunches or instincts. Trust only sheer logic or bare facts that have come after much cogitation and evaluation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Have as little as possible to do with companions who are known troublemakers and can’t be trusted. They’ll pull you down to their level before you know where your head is.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Because you’ll have a lot of trouble defining your goals and will consequently bounce all over the place, it isn’t likely that you’ll achieve anything of substance. It’s apt to be a totally wasted day.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Don’t allow yourself to be drawn into a heated debate with a person whom you know harbors views diametrically opposed to yours. It’s totally futile, because nobody will win.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Verbal agreements aren’t likely to count for anything, so unless you can get what you want in writing, don’t commit to something important or expect the other party to follow through on his/her promise.
