Conditions in general look to be rather hopeful for you in the year ahead. Thus, if and when you should get into a fraught situation, know that Lady Luck is likely to be there, bringing help just in the nick of time.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It behooves you to follow your instincts when it comes to your business dealings. If nothing more, use these perceptions as support for your logical assessments.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Make it a point to take some of the slack out of a fading friendship that you haven’t had much time for lately. There are few things more valuable than good chums.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — The race is likely to be won by the smartest, not necessarily the swiftest, when it comes to a career matter. Be sure to use that thinking cap of yours, so you don’t trip over your own feet.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If you’re alert, you have a good chance of learning something extremely important from a good friend. However, what’s said should be restricted to the parties involved.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Your determination in pursuing your objectives is impressive, but equally important is that others recognize your intentions and make it a point to get out of your way.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If you believe it is necessary to make a difficult decision that everyone else is putting off, have the courage to stick to your guns and do so.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — This is likely to be the day when you promised yourself you’d embark on carefully laid out plans. If you know each step you must take, there isn’t any reason why you shouldn’t succeed.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — By staying in the middle at all times, you’ll fare much better in your dealings with friends. If you’re smart, you won’t let it be known which side you really think is right.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Spare yourself from calling in an expensive repairman by exercising preventive maintenance. If you play it safe, you won’t be sorry.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Be sure to include an extremely introverted, shy friend in your plans. If the invitation doesn’t come from you, it isn’t likely to be issued at all, because no one else will think of it.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The entire clan is likely to profit when the shopping duties are put in your hands. Your caring nature makes you very attentive to everyone’s needs and wants.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — You should take advantage of the opportunity to clear the air with a friend when the opportunity presents itself. Don’t hesitate to talk it out in detail until both parties are satisfied.
