---- — You’ll find that learning will be easier for you in the year ahead if you study things that have an immediate application. Branching out in this fashion could pay off.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) — You don’t have to resort to extravagance to let a loved one know how much you care. In fact, sometimes small but thoughtful gestures are the best.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) — When working in concert with another, don’t attempt to hog the glory for a job well done, even if you think you did all the work. Rewards should be split equally for any joint endeavor.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Make important decisions based only on the existing facts. If you’re not careful, optimistic reasoning will impair your judgment.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Avoid inclinations to make small difficulties into big ones. Instead, use that wonderful imagination of yours in positive ways.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It would be a mistake to request a business or financial favor from people whom you know purely on a social basis. If you want to keep them as friends, seek elsewhere.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It’s iffy as to whether you’ll hit your stride and be productive. To succeed, you must first make sure that you have a clear aim and a strong focus.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Discussions with friends are likely to prove quite enlightening, but steer clear of committing to any proposed joint endeavors. Things wouldn’t turn out well.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Even though you are likely to get a strong start, you could quickly tire and lose steam as the day wears on. There’s a chance that you won’t finish what you start.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Occasionally, we all do a little harmless exaggerating. If you do so today, however, many harmful complications could result.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You’ll handle small financial dealings competently, but that won’t be so when it comes to situations with larger stakes. Avoid taking any risks.

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be careful not to behave in a superior or condescending manner when dealing with others. You’re on shakier ground than you know, and you could use some friends.

Aries (March 21-April 19) — Rewards that you’ve been expecting will come your way, but only in direct proportion to your efforts. Don’t expect any big returns for subpar work.
