Your native instincts will tell which ones will work and which ones won't. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Usually you're the type of individual who is pretty good at brushing off negative annoyances. Today, however, it can still be done, but you may need stronger bristles in your brush. Capricorn, treat yourself to a birthday gift. Send for your Astro-Graph predictions for the year ahead by mailing SI .25 and a long, self-addressed, stamped envelope to Astro-Graph, co this newspaper, P.O. Box 4465, New York, N.Y. 10163. Be sure to state your zodiac sign. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If someone you know is presently in need of your help, don't seek advice from others as to whether or not you should do so. This is a personal matter mediated by your compassio.i. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Today your companions will have a very strong influence Astro-Graph over your attitude and actions. If you're with lethargic friends, it could be a dull day. If you're with energetic pals, it could exciting. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You should do rather well in competitive developments today, but only if you adhere to your highest standards. Anything less will be a victory with a hollow ring. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Focus your anger and energy on constructive channels today instead of merely losing your cool. The former is meaningful, the latter counterproductive. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Instead of being upset by shifting conditions or changes you didn't introduce yourself, make the most of what transpires. You'll discover it was for your ultimate good. CANCER (June 21-July 22) It might be necessary to make some key concessions today in order to appease persons with whom you're presently involved. Compromises invite cooperation. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) All work and no play could make this a very dull day. Conversely, however, that which you neglect may cause you complications down the line a bit. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your executive qualities are rather pronounced today. You'll be good at telling others what to do and how to do it, yet you might not follow your own instructions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) A significant endeavor in which you've been involved for some time can be finalized to your satisfaction today if this becomes your primary objective. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) In order to be an effective promoter or salesperson today, it's important you stop selling once the sale is consummated. If you keep pitching, a "yes" could become a "no." SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Your ideas for either making or saving money today are quite good, but they will only be meaningful if you act upon them. Turn your thoughts into action.

Dennis a menace; JP right on target By WILLIAM SCHIFFMANN The Associated Press .KNNIS THE MKNACK, one of the most annoying tots in cartoon, TV and movie history, is now a video game. , And he's still annoying. , In his latest appearance ($59.95 from Ocean for SNES), Dennis learns that a coin collection belonging to his nemesis, Mr. Wilson, has been stolen. He sets out to recover the valuable coins and snag the crook, Switchblade Sam. But before that happens, Dennis must wade through action on five levels and 19 sublevels .and defeat four Bosses. , To progress, Dennis must race the clock to collect coins "that Switchblade Sam - Switch to his friends has dropped while making his escape. .' The graphics are excellent and the sound is OK. Working the controller will leave you frustrated at times, as Dennis doesn't always do what you tell him as quickly as you might like. ' But overall, Dennis is a pretty good game for children, providing they are patient. This game is not as easy as it looks, and might be too much for the very audience it should be targeting. Ocean has also released its version of Jurassic Park for SNES ($59.95), and it's a keeper. Video game review Unlike Sega's elaborate, detailed version for Genesis, Ocean heads in a cartoon direction. During most of the game, you view the doomed dinosaur theme park from overhead. Go indoors, however, and you are looking through Grant's eyes. As Grant, you have to complete a series of 25 jobs that will shut down the park and restore order. The tasks, some of which mimic events in the popular movie, include collecting dinosaur eggs and starting up the island generator. Grant uses a variety of weapons to fend off the marauding dinosaurs, including an electric prod, gas gun and missile launcher. You'll need all the firepower, because there are some major-league monsters roving Jurassic Park. One great feature is the sound. JP has been recorded in Dolby Surround. Hook your TV to your stereo and sounds seem to come from all over. You'll be forgiven for thinking a veloci-raptor is polishing off the contents of your refrigerator before coming after you for dessert. One thing you'll notice after sitting in front of the tube for a week or so this is one BIG park. With no passwords, you have to play straight through or start all over again later. It's one of the few drawbacks to an otherwise excellent cart. Winners don't have to pay to get prizes tEAR FRIENDS: Today's column could save you a lot of anxiety and monev. Please read it carefully. Reader's Digest, which pioneered the use of sweepstakes in the United States in 1962, is cooperating with the Federal Trade Commission in alerting consumers nationwide about scams operating in several states. The FTC has distributed a brochure nationwide, telling consumers how to protect themselves against being taken. In the last few months, fraudulent telephone calls have been made to consumers in California, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Tennessee. In each case, swindlers tried to bilk victims out of money by claiming they had won the Reader's Digest Sweepstakes. They then said the winnings could not be released until cash or certified checks were sent by overnight courier or wire services to cover taxes and shipping and handling charges. Scam artists were asking from $500 to $10,000. Ann Landers Legitimate sweepstakes do NOT require winners to pay any money to collect their Here are additional fraud-prevention tips: Be wary of phone calls informing you that you have won a sweepstakes prize. Most reputable companies notify winners by mail. Be suspicious if you are asked for money to claim a prize. Swindlers often tell victims the money is for "taxes" or "shipping and handling charges." Never give out your credit card number to collect a prize or enter a contest. Con artists often request this information as "proof of eligibility." Contact the company conducting the sweepstakes. Reader's Digest, like many companies, provides customers with information about prizes, entry deadlines and the odds of winning. A list of winners is available upon request. If you think someone is trying to swindle you or that you have been the victim of fraud, report it immediately to your state's attorney general, the Better Business Bureau in your area, a local consumer protection agency or the National Fraud Information Center at 1-800-876-7060. Remember P.T. Barnum's famous words, "There's a fool born every minute"? Don't be one of them. Dear Ann Landers: I met the girl of my dreams. She was beautiful, witty and bright and had a great sense of humor. We had a wonderful time together, but I had to pull out of the relationship. Her smoking turned me off. "Miss X" made a big effort to keep from lighting up around me, but the smell of rancid smoke was in her hair and on her clothes. Her apartment stank like an old railway station. I left a sweater there one night and had to take it to the cleaners before I could wear it again. It breaks my heart to see this lovely person smoking herself to death, but she seems to be unwilling or unable to quit. After a great deal of thought, I've decided that I can't be around her anymore. I have not told her the reason I decided to break off our relationship because I know she would be angry and I don't want it to end that way. Just sign me Sad in Baltimore Dear Sad: I hope "Miss X" sees this letter in the Baltimore Sun, recognizes herself, bites the bullet and gives you a call. If she does, please let me know so I can share the good news with my readers. Creators Syndicate Inc. Don't let the fear of rejection scare you off DEAR BETH: I'm a ;guy, 13. I keep thinking about this certain girl, but I don't know how she feels about me. We used to talk quite a lot, but lately it seems like she doesn't want to talk as much as before. I thought maybe she was mad at me, but she told a friend that she likes me. So what should I do? My friend says to go for it, but last time I asked a girl to go with me, she just laughed and I felt awful. Sam ASK BETH It is hard to ask a girl this question. You are putting your ego on the line. The fear of rejection holds back many guys, especially young and inexperienced ones. Maybe it will help to think of it this way: If a girl turns down your invitation, it is not really YOU she's rejecting, it is just this specific relationship. i She may not like you, or she may, but what she is saying "No" to is having a special friendship with you, for whatever reason. If you don't ask, you will never find out. Be sure not to give up. Even if your get another turn down this time, there will be other girls you like and other chances for success. Dear Beth: I'm 19. I've been going with a guy I met in college. We are attracted to each other. I don't know if he really wants to be with me or not, but I would like to give it a try. We're starting to open up about our personal lives. Should I tell him I've never felt this close to anyone before? Unsure Yes. Los Angeles Times Syndicate
