Certain happenings in the year ahead could help you fulfill your hopes and advance your long-range plans. This good luck will not be financial in nature — it’ll be far more valuable.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It behooves you to reassess your objectives in case you might be striving for something that’s not worth the effort. Make sure that your priorities are in the right place.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Don’t waste your time arguing with someone about an issue that he or she isn’t willing to budge on. All it’s likely to do is cause you a great deal of discomfort.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Untangle yourself from any mundane involvement with another that distracts you from your own interests. To succeed, be dedicated to your own goals.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Instead of relying on another for support, try to be self-sufficient. Even if this person’s help is forthcoming, you might find that you’re better off without it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — In order to be successful, it’s imperative that you have staying power. Guard against slackening your effort just when your objective is within reach.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Just because associates might not be totally in accord with your interests, it doesn’t mean they dislike you. In order to see things clearly, don’t let your emotions dictate your reasoning.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Certain advantages that you presently possess might be lost or undermined if you exert too much pressure on cohorts. Know when to stop pushing and when to start pleasing.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Keep an open mind and give associates credit for being at least as smart as you. It’s a mistake to discount their ideas and views just because they’re different from yours.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Chances are you’ll get better terms if you allow the other party to make the first proposal in a business deal. Associates are apt to treat you more generously than you anticipate.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — As long as companions are cooperative and making concessions, you’ll be extremely congenial. Should they want what you want, however, it’ll be another story.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Provided you don’t take on something that you’re ill prepared to handle, the probability for fulfilling your ambitious objectives are good. Try to operate within known boundaries.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Unless you can rise above your emotions, think twice before attending a social gathering that will include some people you dislike. Trouble could result if you can’t keep your cool.
