ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your efforts to be warm and friendly may not turn out as planned, so stay out of the limelight. Don't get a haircut, buy new clothing, or make a romantic overture today, as you may not be pleased with the results.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Enjoy the sterling values that experience builds. If trying to change things hasn't worked, maybe you should stick to the conventional and honor traditions. Hold off on having romantic heart-to-heart discussions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Detail-oriented work is not a deterrent. A cut-and-dried approach makes quick work of tiresome details like the balancing your checkbook. However, family disputes and emotional issues can't be solved with analysis.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): High spirits need to run in low gear. In an effort to entertain or amuse others, you could go to extremes or exceed the limits of good taste. It isn't that you're doing anything wrong, just doing too much.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep on trucking. Even if you feel the weight of responsibilities weighing on your shoulders, rest assured that good things are happening in the background. Someone is working behind the scenes on your behalf.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Imposing your high standards on others could place an invisible barrier between you and them. Sometimes painstaking analysis isn't enough, but going overboard with tea and sympathy can backfire, too.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Whimsical ideas falter and could fall flat. This isn't the time to make plans for the future or ask for a commitment. You are too easily swayed by a need for love and could look for it in all the wrong places.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep your finger pressed firmly on the leak. Keep money tucked away in your pocket for the next several days. Keep your heart on a leash, as well, since any new romantic encounter could lead to disappointment.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your generous nature may be rewarded. But don't get carried away and ignore your responsibilities or make sudden changes of plan. This is not the right time to sign contracts or make large purchases.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Use precision to make a decision. You can reach a pinnacle of achievement by carefully staying within boundaries. Bypass new investments and avoid making major purchases.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You could be in a lighthearted, sociable mood when someone else is in deadly earnest. Don't offend others by being silly or frivolous at the wrong moment. Your kind gestures could easily be misunderstood.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your partners and loved ones may only see things in terms of black and white, while you can see all the shades of gray. Temporary differences of opinion will soon evaporate and might not even really exist.
IF OCTOBER 8 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: The more organized and conscientious you are in the coming months, the better equipped you'll be to succeed in your ambitions. Learn to shoulder your responsibilities with pride and set a sterling example in the next several months. Small setbacks will only serve to teach you wisdom and add to your ambitions. Remember that flexing your muscles makes you stronger and more capable. In January, you can throw caution to the wind and grab any opportunities that come your way. Not all promises will be fulfilled, but you should receive rewards for your hard work and enjoy a more carefree existence.
