CANCER (June 21-July 22): Remain oblivious to pleas for help if they are not well warranted. You can help the underdogs of the world by bolstering their confidence in their abilities and showing them how to stand on their own two feet.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Cut to the chase. Take actison, but don't fritter away valuable time. The more organized you are faster you will get ahead when dealing with others. A generous gesture might not be appreciated.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Cut costs without cutting corners. Being a superefficient manager of your own resources will soon prove its merit. Clowning around might offend sedate individuals, so restrain extravagant impulses.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Like Hansel and Gretel, you should follow the breadcrumbs. The conclusions you develop could be used to your advantage later in the summer. Get to work early as energy levels may lag by midday.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Play Captain Courageous and dare to explore the possibilities. Take the first step toward patching up problems on the home front, even if it means swallowing your pride. Zero in on finances.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Mistakes can come back to haunt you. This is a good time to be vigilant about paying your bills on time. Consider automating monthly payments or paying off a troublesome debt.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Shut out the noise and settle down to business. It is time to prove you are well organized and proficient when handling your own accounts. Balance the checkbook or clip some money saving coupons.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Reflect on the past to be wise for the future. The lessons you have learned in a classroom or boardroom can be put to good use. Personal hands-on experience can give you an edge over the competition.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Seeing a challenge when none exists is completely counterproductive. Make your daydreams count for something by prioritizing your key goals. Ignore sudden whims where your heart is concerned.
