You'll have several opportunities to make some notable improvements in your financial circumstances in the year ahead. However, there are also indications that you could be careless in the management of your resources.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don't depend on others to help you achieve a personal objective. Although it might be of personal significance, it's not on anyone else's radar.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If a friend or colleague adamantly opposes an issue that you feel strongly about, don't let it upset the relationship. Turn the other cheek.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- When making a sizable purchase, you should be sure to hang on to your receipt. There's a decent chance that something could be wrong with the merchandise.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Diplomacy will definitely be called for when making a deal with someone who always takes an unyielding position. Try to compromise and find a way for both parties to benefit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- As long as you don't take on more than you can handle, this can be a very productive day for you. You wouldn't be at your best operating under pressure, so why put yourself under the gun?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Be prepared for a social arrangement to have its ups and downs. There is a strong chance that someone whom you dislike could be included in the planned activities.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- An old, unresolved issue could rear its ugly head and become the focal point in a family discussion. Keep your cool and put a stop to it the moment someone tries to bring it up.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Know when to stop pushing something if your prospect has obvious doubts. Trying too hard to make a sale would only make matters worse.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- It behooves you to be extremely careful in handling financial matters, especially if you're doing so for someone else. If things don't work out, you'll be held accountable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- When negotiating an important matter, you should be sure to have all the details down. Things could unravel quickly over even a trivial dispute.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- To achieve personal gain, you'll have to work unusually hard. This is especially so if you feel that you can't trust a vital colleague.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Unless you are socially aware at all times, you could unintentionally slight an old friend in favor of more recent acquaintances. Be careful, because excuses won't be readily accepted.
