ARIES (March 21-April 19): Matters are moving toward a peak where your goals and aspirations are concerned. It's best to remain flexible, as well as fair, if you want to remain on good terms with friends and succeed in the business world.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It could be some of your progress has stalled so you're inclined to search for an innovative approach where money or work is concerned. Investigate and consider doing something different to make headway.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Once you get a pile of tasks completed there will still be plenty of time left over for romantic interludes. If you have a mate, escape into a fantasy world built for two. If not, a charming new face may be in the stars.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do your best. Maintain the upper hand by proving without a doubt that you can complete a job thoroughly. Remember that a stitch in time saves nine, so tend to business glitches before things unravel.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Thrift and economy require a familiarity with true value. It's possible that cutting corners could cost more money in the end. Avoid making promises, signing contracts, or entering into important agreements.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Waste not, want not. An inner tug of war between kind-hearted generosity and self-preservation could lead to unwise choices. Don't be in a rush to spend money or impress others with your frugality.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Help others in their drive for success, and their appreciation will boost your self-image. Keep an eagle eye out for valuable new relationships and connections. Your pizzazz and lively repartee is an asset at the workplace.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You may be reminded that money is merely a tool. Inquisitive people may want access to privileged information, but you don't need to provide access. Take coupons along if you head off on shopping expeditions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Make social contacts and important phone calls early in the day. The need for formalities could make it difficult to show showcase important new ideas. Stay close to home this evening.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You're able to think through tough problems and overcome any obstacle that threatens to block your path. Although your charm and social finesse can smooth the way, you won't be able to escape abiding by the rules.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Hold off making important commitments or offers. It's quite easy to make a mistake if someone overlooks the fine print. This is a time to let your reputation for honesty and integrity act as a safeguard.
IF JULY 18 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Get all your ducks in a row so you can glide through the next 4-6 weeks without a care in the world. Hold off on crucial financial, career and business decisions until October, when your shrewd assessments will be right on the mark. Since your appeal will be at a high point in September, that's a good time to take a vacation or follow your romantic fancies. In November, you might be under pressure to perform at a high level. Remain organized for best results and don't begin anything new while you're under the watchful gaze of the boss or authorities. By following sound advice, you can upgrade your circumstances and improve some key area of your life next April.
