ARIES (March 21-April 19): Measure twice; cut once. The well-known carpenter's creed offers sound advice for you today. Take some extra cautious, methodical steps to be sure everything is correct before initiating an irrevocable action.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst. Meet deadlines with determination. Someone might try to convince you to make a change that's not in your best interest or distract you so that you overlook a key responsibility.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Stay safely within the limits. Even when you know you're doing the right thing, it's still necessary to follow the rules. Take the middle path and avoid controversy and you'll remain out of harm's way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Put your nose to the ground and follow the scent of the truth. You've got a knack for balancing the checkbook and working with fine details even when everyone else seems to be dealing in vague generalities.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Shy away from volunteering for extra commitments. Some time for thoughtful reflection and consideration is required before you make a major decision, but time may be hard to find amid the hustle and bustle.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Waste not, want not. Fill up the piggy bank with spare change and clip some coupons from a magazine. In the long run, these petty economies will help you achieve the security you desire.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Making Mountains out of molehills is a mistake. You could make a serious error if you sign a contract or enter into a commitment because you may misjudge liabilities. Don't open bank accounts or make major purchases.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't come unglued if emotions skew the picture. You might notice that old feelings bubble up for a few hours and distract you from rational analysis. Draw people together to achieve long term goals.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't place emphasis on differences, disputes or discord. Concentrate on the best things, not the bad things. Remember that a magnifying glass can focus energy on something and start a fire.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Group dynamics may become too hot to handle. Put aside your personal ambitions long enough to be welcoming toward newcomers and understanding with your old pals. Steer clear of arguments.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Try to remain stress free. Studies show that anxiety and nervous tensions can adversely impact your health. You may become aware of hidden dangers in the workplace or learn something that affects your diet.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keeping a low profile and ducking trouble is your best bet on days like this. Take care of repairs you've ignored and focus on being more organized. Recharge your psychic batteries by taking a long bath.
