Take advantage of any social developments in the year ahead that offer you a chance to make some quality contacts. People whom you establish a friendly relationship with could prove to be of tremendous help both personally and in your career.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If you’re concerned about taking a certain action, put it off until you can evaluate it more clearly. You need to first know what the ramifications could be.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Getting your facts straight should always be of concern to you, but especially so if you are involved in a costly project. Be sure you look quite closely before you leap.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Don’t be satisfied with ballpark figures concerning an important financial matter. If you’re inclined to jump to conclusions, you could get yourself in trouble very fast.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — An important objective might never be achieved if you ignore the small details. You cannot be oblivious to them — even though they’re tiny, they still matter.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — This might not be one of your better days for keeping things to yourself. A smart adversary who is aware of your shortcomings might get you to tell much more than you should.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Even if you feel justified in giving a nettlesome someone a piece of your mind, you’d be smart to avoid it. It would only increase your difficulties with the offending party.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Regardless of the circumstances, don’t volunteer any unrequested criticism, suggestions or advice. Instead of getting a “thank you,” you’re more likely to get a huge reprimand.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Owing to your focus on the insignificant rather than on the essentials, this isn’t likely to be one of your more productive days. Turn that around.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Before making any costly plans that include a friend or associate, it’s best you check first to make sure that the other party is amenable. Your pal might not be on board.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Opening up a touchy domestic issue is apt to create some unnecessary friction within the household. Don’t voice anything without first considering the consequences.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Before pointing out others’ faults, you had better take a look at your own behavior. Although you might start the critique, others are guaranteed to finish it.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Although you are likely to be quite adept at keeping large expenditures under control, it could be the smaller ones that pile up on you. Be both pennywise and pound-conscious.
