ARIES (Mar 21-Apr. 19): Grin and bear it. Events may conspire so that where you're at is not where you want to be, but your only option is to make the best of it. It may require extra effort to meet deadlines or pressing obligations.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Shut out all distractions. Remain determined to achieve your objectives even when you encounter various obstacles that need to be avoided. Give the highest priority to what is important.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can't hide from the truth. When faced with hard facts, excuses or spin won't make the picture any brighter. Make the necessary attitude adjustments. Be sure the figures in your bank book are accurate.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Roll with the punches. If you know that criticisms are unfounded, there's no reason to defend yourself against them. Ignore negative or derisive comments and focus on constructive endeavors.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): There's no point in beating a dead horse. You gain nothing from arguing the same points over and over with someone. Steer clear of conflict. Make certain that you have not overlooked any bills or debts.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Work now, play later. Responsibilities may make it so that your love life temporarily suffers but you must honor your obligations at all costs. Rest assured that you'll have more fun over the weekend.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22.): Daydreams won't pay the rent. It may be nice to fantasize about the future, but more pressing issues demand your immediate attention. Clear your slate of all responsibilities before taking a break.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Any task worth doing is worth doing well. Take your time and do your best as trying to rush through a project may result in shoddy work. Don't act impulsively as a situation may quickly change.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Keep it under your hat. You may do well to keep your personal feelings over a work issue private as your opinion could be in the minority. Do what is required of you with objectivity.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Do what works for you. Others may provide advice that is tainted by their own bias, so you must be self-reliant and reach your own conclusions. Avoid shaking up finances until next week.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Gauge which way the wind is blowing. Others may not be in a receptive mood if you ask for favors or make presentations today, so bide your time. Keep spending and cash outlays to a minimum.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Live and let live. Don't take it personally if someone doesn't have time for you when preoccupied by their own business. Just because you disagree with a loved one doesn't mean they don't care.
IF NOVEMBER 29 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You may make joyful noises throughout the upcoming four to five weeks. You may be especially buoyant and attract opportunities as well as favors from those who admire your spirit. The people who turn up on your doorstep will have your best interests at heart and your good judgement is at a peak. This can be a very good time to put things in motion or launch plans because the results will be beneficial. Don't let your heart rule your head in February when you may be tempted to follow your fancies. Don't initiate anything new or make major changes in late March or April when your luck is at a low point. Late June or early July is a good time for a romantic vacation.
