CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get motivated. Thoughts of an upcoming vacation or a family holiday provide the ultimate carrot to speed you through the day. Find ways to unearth what others think and be attentive to their needs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The devil, they say, wears the best designer labels. There are many temptations in the world that may nag at your wallet. Act like an angel and take flight when tempted by luxuries and meaningless extravagances.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Cash might burn a hole in your pocket when thrift is called for. It is a poor time to sign a contract or form a partnership. Your best bet is to concentrate on supporting a significant other in his or her efforts.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Do it by the book because to bend the rules might run a risk. You may be able to get away from your desk or job early if you have held up your part of a bargain, met a deadline or exceeded quotas.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Your hungers are not satisfied. Perceptions are distorted, and you could think you don't have enough trees for the forest. Don't begin a diet now, as cravings for extravagance can be distracting.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Avoid taking implied criticism personally. Here and there along the way, someone could say something that is insincere. Be forgiving and magnanimous about minor errors and mistakes.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Reach a healthy state of equilibrium. Like fairy tale star Goldilocks, you won't be satisfied with anything too big or too small, but will have to keep searching until you find something that is just right.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Red carpet treatment often hides a hole in the sidewalk. Your confidence in others may be misplaced. Wait for better timing to make a deal or give assurances, as you can't trust your instincts.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Objectivity is your best ally. Compliments from others might feel a bit insincere, but you are bighearted enough to rise above petty suspicions. Try to do something completely unique and different.
