LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Instead of bombarding your head with all kinds of reasons why you believe things can't be accomplished, fill your mind with reasons why they can. Try this tact, and watch how differently things turn out.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) There is one among your friends who is always asking for more but is never giving anything back in return. Avoid this individual, or be prepared for more being asked of you.
