Far more opportunities than usual are likely to come your way in the year ahead. Put everything to good use, and don’t make the mistake of taking anything for granted — waves of good fortune don’t last forever.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Instead of assessing things from a realistic, practical perspective, you’ll be inclined to see things as you would like them to be. That spells trouble.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — For some strange reason, you could feel obligated toward someone to whom you owe nothing. Although this will be readily apparent to onlookers, you’ll be hard to convince.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — The results aren’t likely to be any good if you join forces with someone who treats lightly an issue that you take seriously. Be more selective of your allies.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — It’s not that you’ll be plagued with a lack of imagination — it’s more likely that your schemes will count for little because you might be too lazy to translate your ideas into action.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You might be tempted to get involved with someone whom your better judgment tells you to avoid. If you ignore that wise voice within you, you’ll regret it later.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — The only way you can be successful is to personally manage all your endeavors to their conclusions. The things you don’t supervise could quickly run amok.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — This might not be the best day to start a program that requires tremendous self-discipline, such as a diet or an exercise regimen. It isn’t likely you’ll have the necessary staying power.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — If you need to purchase something expensive, it would be a good idea to bring along an adviser who is truly value-conscious. Chances are, you won’t recognize a bum deal.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — The best way to be truly effective is to understate things. Being ostentatious or displaying a gaudy taste could severely and permanently damage your image.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Instead of striving to be realistic as per usual, you could feel that the world owes you a living. Because life disagrees with you, unfortunately, disappointment is likely.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — It’s OK to get involved in a pleasurable pursuit, just be sure you can afford it. Plus make sure your cohorts are willing to pay their fair share.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It’s never a good time to take important things for granted, especially where your work or career is concerned. If you get too complacent, it could quickly lead to your downfall.
