There will be more than one path leading to material acquisition for you in the year ahead. If you’re smart, you will choose the one that offers you consistent returns and not the one leading to immediate gratification only.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — To appease someone special, you might have to make a painful concession. It will be worth it in the long run.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — It might be difficult to distinguish between business and productivity. If you operate in the former mode, you’ll have little to show for your efforts.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Regardless of peer pressure, avoid actions that don’t serve your best interests. The only person you need to please is yourself.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Stand up for yourself and refuse to be intimidated by a few hotshots who think they have your number. If you allow yourself to feel insecure, it could cause you to make a bad decision.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Keep your head out of the clouds and your mind on what helpful people are trying to tell you. If you don’t, you’ll regret your indifference.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — A fun friend might concoct a hare-brained scheme that sounds exciting. It would be wise to review it carefully before making a leap.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Making an important decision while under pressure from others might not be the smartest way to go. Your thoughts could be easily muddled by outside influences.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you’re too anxious to get something done, you might only cause more problems for yourself. Form a plan and follow it carefully.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Should you have trouble communicating effectively with friends, let them do most of the talking. It’s amazing what you might learn.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Don’t take on more work than you can handle, and try to operate well within your area of expertise. Out of your element, you could easily founder on the rocks.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Usually, your assessment of new information is on target, but not so today. You’re inclined to jump to conclusions and make some bad decisions.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Financial matters will tend to be a bit trickier than usual. Make sure you read the fine print on everything.
