Trial and error has taught you lots of valuable shortcuts that you’re likely to use in the year ahead. Certain objectives that you previously had difficulty achieving can now be done with relative ease.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you want to assert yourself, it’s important that you do so without being aggressive. Be tactful and considerate, but also firm.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You’re a quick study and capable of learning much from other people as well as from books. It behooves you to closely observe the habits of people you admire.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — It could be one of those times when the people you know could be just as important as the things you know. Hanging out with certain associates could prove to be extremely helpful.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — What makes you so successful is your cooperative spirit. Anyone whom you assist or go out of your way for will feel impelled to respond equivalently.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — The best way to enhance your feelings of self-worth is to busy your heart, head and hands with lots of productive activities. Make everything you do count.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — There is likely to be an additional facet to your personality that makes you even more appealing and fascinating to people. When you sense it, use it, but do so responsibly.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Give top priority to anything you can do to make things happier in the household, especially if someone is feeling down in the dumps.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you’re in charge of a social gathering, it behooves you to limit the participants to a few choice pals. It’s likely to be more fun if there aren’t too many people involved.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — There is a strong possibility that you could derive profit through an involvement with a close relative or a friend of the family. Chances are you won’t have to ask to be included.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Your gift of persuasion is one of your strongest assets, so if you have a special idea or product that you’re trying to sell or promote, make your pitch now. You won’t find a better time.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Lucky you, because one of your greatest benefits is likely to come through the good auspices of another and not from anything you do on your own. Good people help other good people.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Someone you recently met and liked is as eager to get to know you better as you are to know him or her. However, this person is really shy, so it’s going to be up to you to make the first move.
