ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may have great ambitions, but achieving them quickly is unlikely. A lack of cooperation can deadlock business matters, so avoid signing agreements or contracts, or starting new projects.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Ignore anyone who seems to push your buttons or yank your chain. At the same time, your tendency to concentrate on your ambitions may make you less compassionate and sensitive to the feelings of others.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Toe the line. Adhere to the rules and regulations rather than relying on casual opinions and sheer faith to get by. Precision work and extra responsibilities may take up your time but are necessary.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Focus on fostering family values. Remain on point with long-term goals and career aspirations, but avoid gambling with money or resources. Keep up the good work, but don't initiate new ventures or take risks.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Keep your nose to the grindstone. Ride out a temporary slowdown by focusing on hard work and efficiency. This is not a good time to flaunt the rules or ignore regulations.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Beware of a tendency to equate price with value. Social activities could involve business contacts, so you don't dare let your hair down. Don't spend money on items you don't need just because they're on sale.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Good business sense can save you some cents. Rely on your people skills for success, rather than risking everything through financial wheeling and dealing. Save your pennies for a rainy day.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): When ambitions are running high, tempers can fly. Hold off on launching major undertakings and try to be as fair and diplomatic with others as possible. Remember, you cannot control others, only yourself.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The stars are not conducive to fattening your wallet. This is a good time, however, to reassess problems from the past and get organized so you can do everything more efficiently in the future.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You could face a stressful situation involving too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Take off your "in charge" headdress and smoke a peace pipe before things get out of hand.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Mistakes that become a bone of contention may illuminate what needs attention. Stick to facts and figures and don't embellish the truth. This is not a good time to make wise decisions or enter binding agreements.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Past problems may force their way to the forefront. Be charming and sincere to overcome antagonism. This isn't a good time to begin important projects, but you may be inspired by ideas for the future.

IF NOVEMBER 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Situations outside your control could test your resolve during the next six to eight weeks, making this a poor time to start new ventures or enter into any type of agreement. The new year, however, could be one in which you fall madly in love, or reach a new pinnacle of success. Look for a boost in your personal appeal in January and February, which could lead to promotions, romance, or point you in an important new direction. Pull out all the stops and do your best to succeed during those months, when everything you touch can turn to gold. A romance that starts during this time may be the real thing.
