In your desire to improve you financial position in the year ahead, you might be inclined to take a number of gambles. Even though most of them will not live up to your expectations, there is a chance that one might deliver and then some.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Although you might be the recipient of an interesting proposal, in order to take advantage of it, you might have to disengage yourself from a previous commitment.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Even though your compassionate nature urges you to make a loan to a friend who is a poor prospect, it would be better for you to follow your less generous, more pragmatic instincts.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Try not to get impatient with some friends who are not living up to your expectations. Things will get better eventually, so bite the bullet and hang on until they do.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You could find yourself in a ticklish position where you’ll be eager to reveal something that was told to you in strict confidence. Others will respect you more if you keep your trap shut.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you want to do something that is a trifle expensive and you have the money to do it, that’s well and good. Just don’t borrow what you don’t have to bankroll your fun.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Although you’ll expect others to live up to their words, you might not feel the necessity for you to do the same. Life should be a give-and-take situation, not a lopsided arrangement.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — It is more important than usual to keep pace with your duties and responsibilities. If you should fall behind, you’ll quickly discover how extremely difficult it is to catch up.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — The very people you don’t count on will be the ones who are likely to step forward and support you in your endeavors. Those upon whom you usually rely might not lift a finger.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — It isn’t advisable for you to seek advice from too many different people. Unfortunately, all that might do is make it difficult to discern the good counsel from the bad.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you are hawking something that requires a sales pitch, it’s imperative that you know when to call a halt to your presentation. There’s a possibility that you could talk yourself out of a deal.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t ignore your better judgment and common sense when you are trying to make a bargain. If you pay more for something than you should, it’s apt to be your, not the salesperson’s, fault.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your financial aspects are exceptionally good, making it a juicy time to do something profitable, even if you unconsciously strew your path with unnecessary obstacles.
