ARIES (March 21-April 19): New friends could inspire you to try something new. Remain cautious as this may be exciting but also expensive. It might be difficult to maintain a savings plan unless you exercise self-discipline. 

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may not have all the facts or be misled by your own wishful thinking. You would be wise to delay important decisions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This could be a good time to develop ideas and a more ambitious vision of the future hand in hand with a partner or loved one. Some of your fantasies, however, may be unrealistic.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Some people won't want to hear the truth because they don't want to have their illusions shattered. You might not be realistic about your financial, career or job status. 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If someone or something blocks the way forward it might be a signal that you should wait to implement your plans. Keep your criticisms to yourself to avoid misunderstandings. 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Some people who are momentarily dazzled by your skills and attractions may quickly fade from view. However, it is possible that one person you meet will become a lifelong friend.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You could have grandiose ideas or a loose grasp of the facts. It could be best to give up on an idea or put it on the back burner until things have settled down. 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Have faith when relationships are in a state of bewildering flux. Many people think they have definitive solutions, but these could be based on limited experience.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your romantic nature yearns for something above and beyond the ordinary. Your unrealistic expectations may blind you to the faults of others or the drawbacks of plans. 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Unexpected financial demands might put you on edge, but if you plow through the red tape you will come out on the other side stronger and more secure than ever. 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may have a great idea or technological expertise that is ignored. A sound, sensible approach to your position can put the authority others have over your in proper perspective. 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Offer an apology while the time is right before a misunderstanding gets out of hand. Choose to do what is best for your future.

IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Avoid making significant financial decisions in late September because your judgment may be clouded by wishful thinking. You might be slightly down in the dumps in November, so this is not the best time to make changes. However, an opportunity or offer can bring a smile to your face in December and the problems you have been worried about will very likely be solved. That is a great time for a romantic fling, a vacation or to put key plans into motion.
