Your financial trends could gradually begin to show improvement in the year ahead. As long as things continue to move upward, there is no need to become impatient.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Underestimating your competition is apt to produce undesirable results. Unless you carefully evaluate the strength of your adversaries, you could lose out.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — It’s extremely important that you maintain a realistic but positive attitude concerning your work. If you inflate the difficulty of your job, all initiative will desert you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Your survival today depends on how well you can function independently of others. Don’t operate under the illusion that co-workers are looking out for anyone other than themselves.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — It would be wise to support your mate in public, even if you secretly disagree with his or her position. It’s a good strategy to show a united front.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Instead of trying to impose your thinking on your co-workers today, first listen to their ideas and/or what they have to say. They might have some suggestions that are far superior to yours.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Since finances are likely to be a touchy issue, instead of getting involved in a joint endeavor where another controls what you invest, try to handle all of your funds yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — If you’re in a position of authority, be careful of how you treat your subordinates. If you come on too strong, you could create a situation that might get out of hand.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If you attempt to appease associates rather than follow the dictates of your judgment, many of your efforts could turn out to be counterproductive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Your spending habits are likely to be influenced by the company you keep. If you’re with high rollers, chances are that you’ll be more extravagant than usual.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be careful, because you follow an inclination to test your will against a colleague’s. It’s an exercise in juvenile expression that you’ll later regret.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Don’t be intimidated by someone who expresses him or herself in a bold, dramatic fashion. There could be nothing at the bottom of such a display.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — It’s best not to enter into a joint venture without a clear sense of who does what and where it will all lead. Make sure everyone’s priorities are in place.
