    There's a strong possibility you will end up having jurisdiction in some manner over the affairs of others. Handle it as best you can, because it'll prove to be significant to your future.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You will find yourself involved in a partnership arrangement. Make a concerted effort to be a team player, even if you don't want any part of the enterprise. Don't be a spoilsport.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Even if all you're trying to do is include a friend in an assignment, don't ask your pal to carry out a task that he or she can't do as well as you. Your friend will feel inferior.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) You've heard it all before. Personal actions and initiatives are never as satisfying as those you do for unselfish reasons. This will be the case for you today. Which will you choose?
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You know better than to base an important judgment call on cursory information, yet that may be exactly what you'll do if you're not careful. Try to analyze all of your alternatives.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Don't take the cost of a special job for granted without first checking other available sources. Ask various professionals about what you'll get for your money.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Do strive to be a warm and generous person to all you encounter, but don't let a well-known freeloader take advantage of you. This person is lying in wait for another sucker. Remain on guard.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Your personality and good looks may rescue you from many tight spots, but not so today — especially if those with whom you are dealing are not fans to begin with. Don't make things hard on yourself.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Although you might be privy to some valuable information, unless you know what to do with it a rare opportunity will slip by. Check with an expert if you suspect that you have something.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) To be effective in business, you must know how to capitalize on your assets. Be careful not to give more away than necessary in order to gain what might be an insignificant amount.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Take care not to toss in the towel prematurely if you should make some blunders early on. Time is your ally, and given enough of it, you should be able to correct whatever mistakes were made.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) It is never wise to place too much stock in promises made, because conditions beyond one's control can easily usurp this. It might be the case today that the one person you can count on is yourself.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) Try not to ask a close friend to do anything he or she believes is too difficult to handle. You'll only cause embarrassment.
