Both tangible and intangible benefits can be gained in the year ahead by taking your ideas to the marketplace. However, you must have total confidence in your plan.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Before assuming someone else’s responsibilities, make sure your own house is in order. Chances are, you won’t be able to meet the demands of both situations.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — In hopes of making a good deal even better, you might do something that dilutes your position instead of strengthening it. It’s imperative that you know when to stop.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Do your part to keep outsiders out of confidential family matters. Anyone who does not share your roof should not be permitted to share the household’s secrets.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Just because someone isn’t in complete accord with your opinions doesn’t mean that he or she should be considered to be an adversary. Try to learn from the dispute.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be careful in situations where you feel unduly pressured to reveal something or make a concession. If you’re foolishly open with the wrong person, you could feel like a patsy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Partial success is likely to be the best you can hope for if you attempt to do too many things. Do what you can to reduce your workload so that you can be more effective.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Guard against inclinations to make unreasonable demands on your loved ones. If they’re unable to comply with your expectations, it’ll be your fault if feelings are hurt.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Playing favorites with your friends is likely to create all kinds of complications. It could even jeopardize an important relationship if you’re not careful.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — If you feel you have to protect your interests at the expense of another, you’re barking up the wrong tree. Don’t be afraid to change course.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Be careful in whom you place your trust. Face-to-face, associates might appear to agree with your ideas. But they could express an adverse opinion behind your back.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Commercial conditions are a bit unsettled, so be careful when conducting business. If you make a wrong move, it might go unnoticed until it’s too late to fix things.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — The only way you’re going to settle an important situation is through a compromise. Be open-minded, because the advantage you thought you had is a will-o’-the-wisp.
