ARIES (March 21-April 19): Appreciate someone for their good points even when they display their rough edges. Even a prize-winning rose always has thorns. You may have a better time with friends than with someone you love now.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Pay your own way. A situation may arise in which you must demonstrate responsibility and maturity. Enjoy a good time at community events or group gatherings but be sure to chip in on expenses.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a good time to create a vision board and assemble a vision of how you want things to turn out. With a little imagination, you can stretch every dollar further than usual. Your persistence makes every task easier.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may temporarily be distracted by wishful thinking or blinded by surface appearances. Wait until your perceptive business instincts have returned to figure out how to get the best bang for your buck.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may spend time imagining ways to find the resources for a dream vacation. Following a partner’s example of practicality may offer the best results. Keep your attention trained on achieving important long-term objectives.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Address relationship issues with great care. Focus on essential tasks and be understanding if you sense that tensions are building. Someone may be anxious about the details — be understanding and let everyone feel comfortable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Focus on the problem until you find the solution. A loved one might seem difficult to please or on the defensive. Your success in business and financial commitments depends on giving your word and keeping it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Organize your day, but do not dictate someone else’s. Too many plans on your schedule might mean that numerous details must be juggled. Remain polite and considerate even if you feel stuck with an awkward situation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don’t clutter your home with too many objects and ignore the people within. You may be able to turn fanciful ideas into practical moneymaking projects. There may be wisdom in a suggestion that you are too quick to dismiss.
IF JUNE 18 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: An ambition to achieve monetary success could be the center of your focus as the next six to seven weeks unfold. There is a tendency to go to extremes, but you could be lucky and enjoy favors from influential people who recognize your passion for excellence. Anything you initiate will succeed if you remain riveted on seeing it through to a happy conclusion. Late August and early September is a good time to mingle with others, widen your social network and show off your leadership abilities. You could be so focused on romantic dreams in October that you might be fooled by a passing fancy, so avoid romantic entanglements and get-rich schemes. The first half of November is a good time to use your wisdom and expertise to address financial matters or business commitments.
