Friends who have proven to be loyal in the past will be your most reliable allies once again in the year ahead. It will pay to nurture these relationships by being supportive of your allies whenever you can.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Onlookers might believe you to be a better talker than a doer. This can easily be corrected, however, if you act first and leave the conversation until later.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Exercise restraint in your commercial dealings and don't jump on the first offer you receive. Thoroughly study all that is involved, both the obvious points and the subtleties.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)
Friends and associates will quickly become rattled about a critical situation if you are too indecisive. Once you've studied the matter, make your best judgment call and abide by it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22)
Manage the people in your charge with a gentle hand, because they will respond more favorably to kindness than to demands or anger.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21)
Instead of handling your resources with prudence, you could easily succumb to your more extravagant impulses. Remember, what you waste now won't be there when you really need it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Be extremely careful not to play favorites in your involvements with friends. If you do, knowingly or unknowingly, you won't like the results one bit.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
There's a chance you'll become involved in an endeavor in which all the real power will reside in the hands of another. Should this happen, don't fight what you can't change.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20)
Historically, when you spend impulsively, you seldom walk away with a good deal. If you're not careful, it could be one of those times when you'll repeat this pattern.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Friends who want to support you might turn reluctant if you come off as too self-serving. Do unto others as you would do unto yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
The biggest thing you might have to overcome is a lack of belief in your capabilities. If you don't have any faith in yourself, why should others?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Not everyone with whom you'll be involved will be in accord with your way of thinking, but show a willingness to have a meeting of the minds and good things will happen.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
If you're not careful, you could find yourself in the unenviable position of having others making all the decisions for you. Once you lose control, it could be difficult to regain it.
