ARIES (March 21-April 19): Fools and their money are soon parted. There is nothing that can be bought that you can't live without. Don't waste your cash in the week to come; you are better suited to spend time on creative pursuits.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A bit of spit and polish never hurts. Spend your free moments tidying up whatever needs tidied, be it your closet, the garage or even yourself. A little elbow grease this week spares you a future headache.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Listen; don't just wait for your turn to talk. Valuable insights can be found if you are perceptive in the week ahead. Asking too many questions may cause others to question how independent you are.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Blinders are put on horse so they aren't distracted by things along the road. Keep your proverbial blinders on as you work toward goals this week -- and resist the temptation to get involved in other people's affairs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The only certainty in life is that nothing is certain. Don't brashly believe that you cannot fail. No matter how confident you are, always keep a backup plan. Be punctual this week and honor responsibilities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): A bargain that you don't really need is no bargain. Money is best left in the vault. No matter how enticing a deal may seem, it might not be a good idea. Keep expenditures at a minimum until later in the week.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Work now, play later. You should put this day to good use by making sure that your business responsibilities are in order. Make plans that are flexible; the agenda is likely to change as the week wears on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don't start anything new while old issues are unresolved. You may be ready to move on, but must reconcile differences before wiping the slate clean. Hold off on important decisions until midweek.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Two heads are better than one. Someone else's fresh insight may provide the solution to a nagging problem. When shopping, adopt a "look but don't touch" policy until the middle of the week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't get involved. You may be itching to step into a situation but if the matter doesn't really concern you, just sit on your hands and let it be. You might work better alone in the week ahead.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): To get something done do it yourself. You can't always expect someone else to come along and help you through the rough spots. Avoid those who try to rope you into a confrontation in the week to come.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Sometimes the best course of action is to take no action at all. Put your good judgment to good use. Perhaps adopting a more unconventional approach will make things easier in the week ahead.
IF NOVEMBER 13 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You might be letting group activities or organizational politics affect your happiness. Concentrate on being seen as the consummate professional no matter what line of work you are in - and don't let social affairs affect your financial decisions. Mid-December is a good time for youe finances and career, so work hard to make your fantasies come true. On the romantic side, you might be able to take a dream vacation and gather wonderful memories. A new romance that comes into your life in March could be too good to be true. Wait until April to make key decisions about your love life or business. That is when your judgment is at its best.
