ARIES (March 21-April 19): Gentle persuasion does the trick. Remain tolerant of other people's opinions and willing to give every person the benefit of the doubt.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can easily achieve a meeting of the minds if you're willing to meet someone halfway. You can juggle the checkbook or handle intricate calculations. Take pride in your ability to be accurate without being critical.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may be riveted on business all day, but the night is a different animal. Loved ones will do their best to fulfill your every need and intuitively read your mind. Enjoy good times while they last.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Start something lasting under desirable conditions and the outcome will be pleasing. Focus on enhancing your reputation without appearing to be a cutthroat business person. There's enough to go around.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Count on someone to be there when needed. Your reliance upon family members, as well as partners, will be rewarded by support just in the nick of time. You can tighten the purse strings best by clipping coupons.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Listen to the voice of reason and inspiration before you act. This is a good time to ask for forgiveness, ask for assistance, or to make a good thing better. Entering into new business arrangements isn't wise.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You may be a bit more idealistic and visionary than usual. You can see the long-term benefits of supporting local stores and businesses. Your energies are charged up, so you can easily tackle intensive studies.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Stay out of the limelight. Cozy times at home might be your best bet. Pop popcorn, out on a movie and share the sofa with a loved one. You may end up exchanging sweet nothings big-time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Love the one you're with. Make the best use of amorous alignments to delight a partner or amuse a lover. This isn't an auspicious time to start a new romance, but you can breathe new life into old ones.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Remain flexible and willing to adapt to sudden changes in plans. You won't be punished by the fickle finger of fate for being extra nice to the new guy in your office, or making a generous donation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If your love life were a party, you'd be attending Woodstock. As often happens during any heady social event, unbalanced judgment could affect serious business matters. Don't aim too hard to please.
IF OCTOBER 23 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Confidence runs high during the next four to six weeks. You might safely pose as a high flyer without a safety net since you're fearless and forthright. Hang tight, however, and wait to implement your major material plans until next January, February or March, when your ambitions and business acumen are in high gear. Late December or January could be the optimum time to take a dream vacation with a romantic partner, or just a good time to jot down all the ideas that flower.
