The year ahead can be one of great productivity for you, provided you do not take on more projects than you can comfortably handle. Be selective so that you don’t get in way over your head.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Unfortunately, you could have a tendency today to worry about things that may never happen, making your life miserable. Negative thinking will lessen your vitality and effectiveness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Do not make the mistake of recommending a purchase to another if you’re unsure of the taste of the individual for whom it is intended. If it turns out to be a bad blunder, you will be blamed.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You’re far more vulnerable today than usual, so you must be careful not to allow yourself to be used by someone who has selfish motives. Be giving and openminded, but also be on guard.
ARIES (Maich 21-April 19) —There’s far too much to do today, so don’t try to avoid those jobs which you know must get done — and the sooner the better. Anything you postpone will lead to bigger problems later.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Unless you move slowly with enterprises that have elements of risk, you could make a major mistake. That which you hope to gain may not be worthy of what it takes to get it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Should a volatile issue which previously caused friction within your household surface again today, be prepared to treat it more sensibly. Be more tolerant and don’t point any fingers.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — No one is in the mood to take kindly any critical comments that are made today. So, to avoid a fight, don’t say anything at all. Maintain good relationships at all costs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) —This is one of those days when a lot of sticky fingers could be out in the streets. Take extra measures to keep your doors locked and valuables out of sight, especially when shopping.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you are too insistent that everything be done your way today, you can expect some major complications to arise in your deiings with other family members. Compromise where you can.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) —You may be thrown together with someone today who treated you badly in the past. Be on
■■•-J lf- - «-.!< - j
“We don’t have many carolers like you, thank goodness.”
guard with this person, but don’t do anything out of spite in order to get even and make matters worse.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be careful of making hasty decisions today regarding your financial affairs. It’s not enough to excuse frivolous spending just because of the upcoming holiday. You’ll have to pay for it later.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don’t lose sight of using logical procedures today in order to let your hair down a bit, because it’ll only lead to a failure of achieving the hard objectives at hand. Separate work from fun.
