ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your efforts to be fascinating fall flat. Rather than angling to make a romantic conquest, it's time to be humble. You may think poorly of a proposal on the table, even when concessions are offered.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You can be loyal until it hurts. Because you feel that you owe someone dutiful support, you might hide your own light under the proverbial bushel and spoil your chances to enter or win a competition.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): "Resistance is futile" is the war cry of imaginary science-fiction cyborgs. You may have plans in play that depend on someone else, but could meet a stubborn resistance that requires compromise.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Fight club fantasies let you flirt with danger safely. You need courage to fight off negative influences, but could be defensive about good influences as well. Don't play chicken with your bank account.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Prima donnas primp and parade, but seldom prevail. You could be so focused on receiving attention and proof of personal allegiance that you are blind to the fact that others are looking for and results.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You want to own the very best, but must be patient. Your piggy bank might squeal if you try to pull out some cash. It seems that your good taste exceeds your bank balance right now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The selfish bird gets no worm, no matter how early. Your self-interest may be evident especially if you try to use your powers of persuasion. Others might be suspicious and resistant to acceptable offers.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A casual counseling session leads to contentment. An offhand suggestion might help you avoid trouble and could prevent you from making a mistake with your money. Mend fences and repair relationships.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Good deeds are their own reward. Practice being generous and open minded even if others won't acknowledge your largess. People might see your kindness as a challenge to their character.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't let power go to your head. You enjoy holding the reins of power and dominating others. You have the ability to affect the outcome so should be concerned about the welfare of others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You know where to stick pins into voodoo logic to burst unrealistic expectations. Your desires exceed the contents of your wallet. Find a congenial someone to share reasonable expenses.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone would rather fight than switch. You can't force anyone to try new ways or to break away from the tried and true, but you can soften them up with some sincere flattery and offer a compromise.
IF SEPTEMBER 22 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: It is all about the new you for the next several months. Your self-confidence and self-assurance give you an edge over others in any competition. You may want to rid your life of people and things that have outworn their usefulness between now and February but may feel differently by March so clear things out cautiously. You have the necessary ambition to be successful at any new endeavor that grabs your passionate interest but rewards for a job well done might not arrive until June. That is the best time to make important decisions or implement key changes in your life knowing that they will be beneficial and bring lasting improvements.
