---- — Two relevant changes in your basic lifestyle could be in the offing in the year ahead. Even if you have nothing to do with initiating them, both are likely to work out to your ultimate advantage.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don’t be foolish enough to attempt to do something that you failed miserably at in the past. Unless you profit from your mistakes, you’re destined to repeat them.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Even though your way of doing things might be superior to others’ methods, unless you handle matters in a humble manner, others will be unwilling to follow your lead.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Be careful what you say when making a suggestion. Your intention might be good, but your choice of words could be offensive.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Financial gains and losses are both possible during this cycle, so unless you’re careful, poor judgment could wreck your bottom line.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — It’s essential that you distinguish between when to assert yourself and when to back off. If you get your signals crossed, you could end up looking bad.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Even though you’re usually pretty good at keeping others’ secrets, if you’re not careful today, you could let something slip out.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Although you’ll be exceptionally practical and prudent in areas where you have little to gain, strangely, you might be somewhat foolish when it comes to more costly matters. Reverse that formula.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Your interests should never become so important that you’d do something shameful. Maintain your high standards at all times.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Advice to others based upon personal knowledge and experience can be extremely helpful. The opposite would be true if you pretend to know something you don’t.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be extremely careful, whether you’re handling your own fiscal affairs or those of another. In either case, things could become perilous if you’re sloppy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — It’s important that you don’t ignore wise counsel just because it comes from someone you don’t like, while accepting the advice of a friend whose judgment is usually poor.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Unless you schedule your time well, you could become very busy accomplishing nothing of any importance. Be proficient, not frenetic.
