ARIES (Mar 21-Apr. 19): Keep your nose clean. Some people may be eager to start a fight over nothing, so steer clear of those with chips on their shoulders and concentrate on simply taking care of your own responsibilities.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): All you have to do is ask. If you need something from someone, you're most likely to get it if you employ good manners and a friendly demeanor. You'll accomplish much more by compromising rather than competing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Don't let ill will take root. Reconcile with those you've had disagreements with recently. The issues themselves may be trivial, but the scorn generated by the disputes could become permanent if left unchecked.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): A little contrition goes a long way. Make things easier for everyone by burying the hatchet with an adversary, even if you were in the right. Others will admire you for showing mature judgment.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Say it like you mean it. You'll gain more respect by being honest than offering sugar-coated, misleading pleasantries. Don't be pressured into making important decisions, as you may not have all the facts yet.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If you want to keep a secret, then don't tell anyone. Be careful who you confide in, as more than likely your secret will be repeated. Don't carry too much cash around or it may burn a hole in your pocket.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22.): Grease the wheels. Mingle with co-workers. Be warm and friendly toward those you deal with daily and achieve positive results. Don't feel obligated to apologize for someone else's faulty perceptions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Maintain balance. Being either too optimistic or too negative could come back to haunt you. Simply take things as they come and act accordingly. Make your schedule flexible, as plans are likely to change.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Good advice is only helpful if you listen to it. Someone may provide valuable insights that can help you achieve long-term goals, but it will do you no good unless you take it to heart.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Things don't always go according to plan. Remember that nothing is foolproof and no matter how carefully you've assessed the situation, one unforeseen event can change everything.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There's nothing to fear but fear itself. The more positive you are that things will turn out for the best, the more likely it is they will. Avoid being vague about details, as others may doubt your sincerity.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Don't bite off more than you can chew. If you've taken on more responsibility than you can handle, you may have to delegate authority to get the job done. Don't take rumors too seriously.
IF OCTOBER 28 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You are humble and may not realize that you're very popular and well-thought of within group situations. Take more interest in group activities and participate in organizational meetings for the best results during the next four to six weeks. You may even make a new best friend. January is a good time to have romantic outings, so take a dream vacation or visit an exotic location. Between January and March, being healthy and at peace with the world may become of primary importance and your interests may turn away from material success.
