ARIES (March 21-April 19): It isn't necessarily your actions, but your reactions, that must be controlled. Concentrate on making sure that your possessions are well cared for and that you have made ample plans for the future.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Forgiveness never fails. You may be called upon to explain yourself to clear up a mired misunderstanding. Adopting a frank and forgiving attitude will reassure others and enhance your reputation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You expect that others will give you the benefit of the doubt. Perhaps someone is jealous of your success or feels you are being insincere. Wait for better timing to go out on a first date or job interview.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Confusion can fog the issues and throw home-based relationships into the soup. Clarity will return in a few days — but in the meantime, communication is your best ally. Talk your way out of tough spots.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If work were always fun, you would pay to do it and not the reverse. Even if it seems it will never get done, remember that flowers don't bloom unless a little rain falls. A few frustrations will be worth the result.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The dish ran away with the spoon. Odd pairings are possible. If you go out for the evening, carry just enough spending money to get by. Otherwise, pockets may develop holes and impetuous spending may occur.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): "And now for something completely different." Like an episode of the Monty Python show, no one knows what to expect next. Show off your originality, but don't try to shock the crowd.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You, as a Scorpio, know some secrets. One secret formula that you may have learned is that there is no way of getting ahead without helping people. Get on the phone and see what you can do.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You tend to be grateful for the do-gooders of the world. You may be turned off by those more concerned with making profits and defining an enemy than with upholding the common good.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Much depends upon how you interpret a situation. It could be a crisis or an opportunity. You might be ready to party at the drop of a hat this weekend, but a sustained effort is more likely to bear fruit.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Fight off the urge to indulge a whim or act capriciously. Meeting up with someone new this weekend could prove disruptive or costly. You may change your mind about a commitment or a promise.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): What you see isn't always what you get. If career success and money are the main subject, or your emotional well being is at stake, avoid making a firm promise. Conditions may change over the weekend.
