Although the possibilities of fulfilling your hopes and expectations look to be quite promising in the year ahead, there might be a price to pay. Your tolerance might be severely tested when trying to climb the ladder of success.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Try not to be overly exacting with or too demanding of subordinates. They’ll perform far better and produce much more if you minimize your supervision and nitpicking.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — There’s a possibility that you could be unreasonably stingy with persons who have treated you generously in the past. Behaving in such a manner is the wrong way to repay such kindness.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You could be inclined to postpone important things that require immediate attention. If you stall too long, the day will be over before you get anything done.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — To a large degree, the end results of an important matter will be determined by the way you anticipate the consequences of your actions. Think and act positively, and you’ll come out ahead.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It is an excellent time to analyze your spending patterns in search of budgetary holes. If you truly want to make improvements, you’ll view things realistically.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Under most circumstances, you are not the type of person who easily backs away from a challenge. However, if things look to be too difficult currently, it might be better to hang back.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Be helpful to others whenever you can, but be cognizant of your own needs and limitations as well. If you take on more than you can handle, no one will benefit.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — There are times when we probe too deeply into others’ personal affairs and we learn things we’d rather not know. Don’t let your curiosity get out of hand and create this kind of situation.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — You shouldn’t have to be told to be extremely tactful if you find yourself in an involvement with someone whose support you badly need. This could be shaky ground for you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Adopting a negative attitude regarding a distasteful but necessary task would only compound matters. Grit your teeth and get the job done.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — The temptation to take a huge financial risk might be rather pronounced. Unfortunately, Lady Luck isn’t likely to back you up in this type of speculation.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Be open-minded to any advice offered you, but don’t be unduly influenced by persons who always view things negatively. Make up your own mind.
