Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you think you can talk your way out of a problem caused by careless behavior at work, guess again. The only thing that will stand the test of time is responsible performance.

Aries (March 21-April 19) — If you spend more of your hard-earned money than you usually do on trying to have a good time, be sure it is worth the splurge. If it's not, you're likely to hate yourself tomorrow.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Domestic responsibilities could put a damper on some personal plans you were hoping to engage in. If you try to wiggle out of your duties, be sure it is worth the cost.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) — It could be a thing, person or situation that turns out to be a severe source of agitation. Unfortunately, any one of them could be a strong enough irritant to get your gander up.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Having fun when out on the town may do a lot for your feelings of well-being, but if you do so at the expense of taking your eye off your belongings, it might cost you more than you can afford.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Picking the wrong buddy to run around with could create an entirely new set of problems that you've never experienced. Better to go it alone than ask for trouble.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — There is nothing wrong with your blueprint, but unless you are careful about the materials you use, your castle won't hold up. Don't use sand if there is cement available.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Putting on airs or pretenses could subject you to being questioned about who you really are. Worse yet, there's a good chance you will be challenged to prove what you represent is fact.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Someone who would like to steal your thunder may attempt to spread rumors about you. Don't hesitate to call this person's bluff and make him/her prove his/her "facts."

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don't attempt to take on an assignment about which you know little in the hopes of impressing the boss. If you fall flat, you'll get the wrong kind of attention.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Be careful to handle your own resources with the same consideration and care you would give in managing the funds of others. Carelessness will definitely lead to losses.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — In order to placate someone important to you, there's a good chance you might promise to do something you could easily bow out of. If you do, however, your excuses won't pass muster.
