Several significant successes are likely to be in the offing for you in the year ahead. Onlookers might view your objectives as unduly complicated, but you’ll see them as simple, because they’ll be labors of love.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Insincerity will be instantly detected and result in you being labeled a shallow person. If you can’t honestly find something worth praising in another, there’s something wrong with you.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Thinking big doesn’t mean a thing unless you put your words into action. The only way you can achieve noteworthy successes is to earn them through effort and application.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Instead of viewing matters realistically, you’re likely to color facts to suit your expectations. Self-deception will result in huge disappointments.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Even though it might be hard to convince you otherwise, the world doesn’t owe you any free rides. You shouldn’t expect anything more than what you deserve.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Be mindful of your behavior, or else it will be far too easy for you to be overly attentive to someone who doesn’t deserve it while totally ignoring someone who does.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — A commitment you make might be of little importance to you but quite significant to the person to whom you’re making it. Be sure to honor your word.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — Pretending to be something other than what you are will be detected by your friends and will make a poor impression on them. The world will love you more if you are your own sweet self.
Aries (March 21-April 19) — Do not be too disappointed if someone whom you’re very fond of does not live up to your expectations. Leave him or her some room to be human — no one is perfect all the time.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) — Stop and think before you open your mouth, or you could experience one of those embarrassing moments when you say the wrong thing, at the wrong time, to the wrong person.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Thinking you have to be a big spender in order to impress someone is barking up the wrong tree. If you have to drop a lot of dough to get someone’s attention, then he or she isn’t anybody you want to know.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — When it comes to one-on-one relationships, treat everyone as an equal and forgo all forms of brinksmanship. If you try to put on any airs or affectations, someone will trump you.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Unless you keep pace with your obligations and duties, you are likely to sweep certain obligatons under the rug. If you do, you’ll pay a hefty price later on.
