ARIES (March 21-April 19): Let off steam. You and a loved one or a partner could be at odds over who is in charge. Don't allow a passing tiff to turn into a major argument. Control your temper rather than trying to control others.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put your shoulder to the wheel. Plug away at meeting old obligations, rather than creating new ones. An acquaintance or co-worker might offer helpful information or point out a valuable incentive.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Think things through. Numbers don't care how you handle them, but people don't always add up. Be rational and particularly careful with details, facts and figures — but be warm and generous with people.


CANCER (June 21-July 22): Maintain a low profile. Don't infringe on the rules or give anyone a reason to criticize you. This isn't the day to send private e-mail or play games on the computer when the boss is out of the room.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Caution is king. It pays to steer clear of controversy. Be discreet when sending e-mail to your friends while on the job and avoid disagreements with co-workers. Don't do anything you couldn't tell mother about.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): "Eat, drink and be merry" might be fine tomorrow night, but eventually someone has to pay the tab. Don't overlook bills that have been sitting on your desk or last-minute tax write-offs.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Impossibly high standards require impossibly high performance levels. Dot every "i" and cross each "t" to avoid criticism. Search for a safe and secure oasis of tranquility, but only during a lunch break.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Escape from the pressures of work and career once the workday is completed. Keep things simple and clear, as foul-ups could occur. Don't worry about anything that is out of your personal control.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Busy schedules require careful organization. Your normally carefree, happy-go-lucky ways won't cut the mustard under these celestial conditions. Prove how self-disciplined you can be.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You can't understand shades of meaning if you only view things in terms of black and white. Be exacting about the rules and meeting deadlines, but a creampuff when dealing with a very special someone.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Keep your feet on firm ground. For a few hours, you may fall prey to self-deception or let a highly critical emotional state override your common sense. Friends may act as good sounding board.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Know your stuff. You cannot be thrifty unless you understand a true value. Cutting corners could cost more than dollars. Avoid making promises, signing contracts or entering into important agreements.
