ARIES (March 21-April 19): If you experiment with something new you won't be blue. There is no reason to avoid setting up an online chat account or plugging in an electric guitar. Try out something unique to you that expand your horizons.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You aren't at your best so should give it a rest. This is a poor time to negotiate with others or to make a purchase of personal apparel or home furnishings. Steer clear of misunderstandings and avoid making key decisions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Early in the day you might not feel up to par, but if you avoid defending your so-called honor a small controversy will blow over quickly. Arrange for a one-on-one intimate meeting or evening of entertainment.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): A family member might give you unsolicited advice. When dealing with the details of a business project you might run into a situation in which you are out of your depth. Wait to make a crucial decision.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Logical thinking is the best long term solution. Someone may play on your sympathies but this is not a good time to give in to emotions. Hold off on key decisions, launching a new business plan or making a major purchase.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be a diplomat and be as tactful as possible when dealing with others. Someone may feel snubbed if you are evasive. At the same time, it may be wise to shelve a decision or to hold off on giving a definitive answer.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Concentrate on being considerate. Someone may come unglued if given starchy ultimatums. In the workplace you may briefly feel helpless, but it is unlikely that anyone will volunteer to come to your rescue.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be discreet. Loved ones may be overly sensitive to perceived slights. Demonstrations of affection may make your heart race a bit faster. Those in charge, however, might frown on an inappropriate flirtation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't neglect loved ones due to business schedules or expect them to conform to an arbitrary set of standards. Spend more time with your family or favorite hobbies and less time complaining about your fate.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Learn to live with it. Your efforts to be kind and generous could be rebuffed. Wait another day or two to put your most precious plans into motion. Right now people aren't in the mood to embrace your ideas.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't let money slip through your fingers. Something may drain your pennies or your energies. Someone might annoy you by flaunting things you can't afford to purchase. Focus on learning something new and practical.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Retreat from the mainstream. Avoid the spotlight but don't make a fuss about it. Some people may not understand or sympathize with your sensitivity to noise or allergy to the hustle and bustle of the workplace.
IF SEPTEMBER 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You have a fine head for business right now, but anything you start in the upcoming four to five weeks may lead to long term stress or create turmoil. Avoid becoming entangled in new relationships or starting anything of crucial importance. By October you could feel like everyone's pampered darling or the star of your book club. It might be that a new group of friends will help you stay focused. You may be tempted to do something you shouldn't do in January but friends will keep you on the right track. February is great time to interview for a new position, take the steps to begin a new career or to launch crucial plans. Embrace any opportunities that come your way.
