Don’t be surprised if, in the year ahead, you find yourself going through a sifting process regarding the objectives you are setting. If you want to be successful, you must be extremely selective about your aims.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Guard against an inclination to do things the hard way, especially where your work is concerned. If you’re using an ineffective procedure, try something different.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Even if your hunches are usually correct, if they are more negative than positive, dump them as quickly as you can. Your imagination may be playing tricks on you.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — It’s time to phase out something that isn’t living up to its potential in terms of profits. The longer you stay with it, the more money it will end up costing you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — When pursuing an objective, take care not to walk over others. It might end up costing you far more than just time and money.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Don’t make the mistake of thinking that aggressiveness is the same as vision. Before imposing any of your ideas on your co-workers, make sure they’re feasible.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Watch out for any little changes that may have been made to something without your or anybody else’s knowledge. They could alter matters greatly.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — It isn’t likely that you’ll be proud of your efforts if you’re more interested in getting things done than you are in getting them done right. Quality over quantity is your mantra, today.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Although you will be a keen observer, unfortunately your focus is likely to be more on others’ failings than on their many positive qualities.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It would be a huge mistake on your part to spend funds you have earmarked for something essential. If you’re not disciplined in the handling of money, you’ll never get ahead.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Remember the adage: “If it isn’t broke, don’t try to fix it,” and your life will be much easier. Don’t needlessly ask for trouble.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You’re not likely to look good in the eyes of others if you try to shirk or displace blame. Spend your energy making corrections, not accusations.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Unless you pay close attention to what you’re spending, you won’t be a good manager of your money. Don’t shell out what you can’t afford to lose.
