---- — A great emphasis will be placed on your leadership qualities in the year ahead. Whereas in the past you didn’t mind taking orders, you’ll now want to be the person who issues all the directives. Make sure you’re ready for the job.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Financial conditions could be rather testy, so it behooves you to manage your resources as wisely as you can. Avoid all excessive spending and don’t borrow or lend out any money.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you fail to establish some realistic objectives for yourself, you could burn out striving for an unattainable goal. Be practical, and you’ll do fine.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t do anything that could cause you problems today. You’re in a cycle where you need to pay strict attention to your inner judgment. If you stray, you’ll regret it.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — A domineering companion might attempt to involve you in something that you want no part of. You’ll need to muster the necessary resolve to stay out of trouble.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — To underestimate your competition would be a grievous error. You’ll have to bring your “A” game and go at it with everything you’ve got.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Review your tasks and/or assignments first thing, especially those that are distasteful to you. If your heart isn’t in your work, you could make things worse.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Hard feelings will result if you expect too much from a joint endeavor. Of course, the same might be true if your partner expects too much from you as well. All efforts must be equal.

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Before you start finding fault with your mate, keep in mind not to blow things out of proportion. Once you open Pandora’s box, you might not be able to close it again.

Aries (March 21-April 19) — Because you have acute critical faculties, it is sometimes easy for you to spot flaws in others. However, should you see a disturbance in someone today, you’d be wise to keep it to yourself.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Your extravagant urges could demand your attention, making it possible for you to do something financially foolish. Before spending money outlandishly, remember how hard you worked for it.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) — The consequences of your behavior could deleteriously affect your colleagues. Make doubly certain that your motives are constructive and noble.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Under most conditions, you’re not prone to holding grudges, yet today some old complaints might rear their heads. Try to forgive and forget, and you’ll be a lot happier.
