There are strong indications that you will form a powerful alliance in the year ahead that could prove to be helpful to your career. The value of this partnership will depend on your ability to keep it confidential.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There's a chance that you could be domineering in a one-on-one relationship, which would be counterproductive. Use charm to get what you want.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's nice to be helpful, but don't take on so many burdens that it makes you ineffective. When you're bogged down and can't function, you won't do anybody any good.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Stick to the plan of a social engagement, instead of trying to make a last-minute change. Your alterations won't add anything of value.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you're not careful, you could easily yield to peer pressure and agree to do something that does not serve your best interest. Be firm and stand your ground.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Just because someone is a colorful talker doesn't mean that he or she is a knowledgeable one. Don't be mesmerized by the flash and totally overlook substance.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- The need for instant gratification could cause you to spend your money foolishly. Wait until you find the perfect buy instead of snapping up the first offer you come across.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- If you make an impulsive commitment or promise, there's a good chance you'll end up regretting it. Be very careful on what or to whom you pledge your word.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If a friend or associate is raring to go, you might be a bit too retiring for him or her. Instead of seeking solitude, get out and try to have fun.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll be eager to hang out with people, yet you might not enjoy being in a large gathering full of new faces. Stick to your familiar inner circle.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- There is nothing wrong with being a little competitive, provided it's for a reasonable, constructive purpose. Today, however, your urge to win might come from a negative source.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You'll be susceptible to high-risk proposals that promise something for nothing. Look at all "too good to be true" deals with a gimlet eye.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll enjoy conversational exchanges as long as they're not centered on personal or weighty subjects. Don't allow yourself to get drawn into emotional repartee.
