By being motivated by reward in the year ahead, you’ll prepare yourself to take on greater obligations and responsibilities. Subordinate roles will hold no appeal for you; you’ll shoot right for the head jobs.
LIBRA (Sept. 23*Oct. 23) —You have much more going for you today than you realize and unless you understand this, you may not strive for anything. If you think you’re a loser, you’ll be one. Be a winner instead.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Break through those fixed opinions of yours today and allow your brain to be infused with fresh, progressive ideas. For true growth, be ready and willing to explore the thinking of others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Boldness is your forte where joint ventures are concerned, but today it might be smarter to cushion your verve with a quiet approach. Leadership works in tandem with others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Companions will have respect for your directives today, but unless you have the courage to adhere to them yourself, they could lose confidence in you. Lead by example.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) —You may mean well, but unless you truly have experience in doing a job, don’t volunteer to take one on. Should it turn out to he way over your head, your contribution will hurt, not help.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Normally your pleasant manner can get along with even so-called difficult types, but today you may not have the tolerance it ll take to handle a particularly demanding individual. Don’t blame yourself.
ARIES (March 21 -April 19) —Your family’s welfare is apt to be your main concern today and you’ll take extra measures to be both protective and concerned for their needs. Their appreciation will be well worth your effort.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — People aren’t mind readers, so if they aren’t being solicitous to you, whose fault is that? Let everybody know where you stand and what you want; only then can they come through for you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — It may not be to your benefit today to be stubborn about your business concerns. Being overly protective of your interests might be at the expense of others. Compromise your needs.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — You may have to stiffen your back and dig in when confronted by challenging developments today. Both fortitude and determination will be required in order to realize personal success.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Sometimes silent participation is required when we set out to help others in order to protect their interests. I bis may be one of these days, but your hidden contribution wont be forgotten.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Don’t let an old project suffer today because of your enthusiasm for something new, or else all you’ll have to show for your efforts are two unfinished tasks. Give attention to both.
