LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Forgo talking about your family run-ins or problems with others, because what you say in anger will get back to whomever is the target. What you say will not just be repeated but embellished.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Someone with whom you’ve had personal problems might start to get chummy with a buddy of yours. Before s/he can do any harm, explain your consternation to your friend.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Take care not to place a friend or yourself in an awkward position by asking to borrow something in front of others, in case s/he needs to say no. Be more discreet.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Spend time participating in some kind of lighthearted, pleasurable activity with friends, instead of attempting to further a personal ambition. Give it a rest already!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Take it easy and don’t make life a win-or-lose situation. You could trip over your own ego, should you begin competing against a good acquaintance.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Bear in mind that sometimes people start voicing crazy things just to hear themselves talk. If you sense that’s the case, take what is being said with a hefty grain of Mrs. Dash.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Think before you speak, because even though you might not have any intention to do so, you could accidentally say something that a sensitive friend could find offensive.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — If you can’t stand to lose, don’t engage in any competitive sport, especially if you intend to play a competitor whom you badly want to beat. There’s a good chance s/he has been busy practicing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — No matter how angry you might be at the moment, do not get into any heated disagreement with someone in your family if there are outsiders present. It will tar the entire clan, not just you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Don’t expect a partnership arrangement to work out as well as anticipated, if neither you nor your colleague is exercising good judgment. Lay out a game plan first and analyze it for bugs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you must work on a complex commercial endeavor, be extra patient and diligent about what you’re doing and how you go about it. Hidden problems are apt to be part of the mix.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You might feel you have a lot to tell your friends, but be careful you don’t end up dominating the conversation. Once you’ve had your say, let up and listen to the responses.
