    In the year ahead, you might become closely involved with a unique person who is extremely selective as to whom he or she shares time with. Although this individual won't be your only friend, the relationship will produce unusual benefits.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Steer yourself away from a friend's complex financial or business problems as fast as you can, because if you stick around, you could get drawn into his or her complicated affairs.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you discuss your problems with an ineffective counselor, you could end up worse off than you were before. Be more discerning.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Although you can be quite industrious when the mood strikes, you could spend more time and energy rationalizing why you shouldn't do something than it would take to do the job.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your judgment as to what things are worth is extremely questionable, causing you to pay far more for something than it is worth to you or anyone else. It could be an ego thing.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Disappointment is in the offing if you simply expect others to drop what they are doing in order to gratify your whims. Be more considerate about their interests and help them instead.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Sometimes you have a tendency to falsely anticipate the feelings of others and never give them a chance to show you otherwise. Today could be one of those days — unless you allow friends to express themselves.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) Be prepared to pay the lion's share of the bill when out with a friend who is always broke. If you're smart, you'll stick to doing things that don't cost anything.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) If you think too optimistically about what you can accomplish, you could find yourself overwhelmed in no time, not to mention overworked. Complete one job at a time.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) There are no certainties in life, so don't take anything important for granted, even that which is usually a sure thing. Little distractions may take you far off the mark.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) If someone you know is suddenly displaying overly friendly behavior, your antenna should be vibrating loud and clear that something is amiss. This person likely has ulterior motives.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Don't allow companions or friends to dictate your mode of behavior, or make you do something that makes you feel uncomfortable or ashamed. Be your own person.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Even though your performance level might be poor, you may not tolerate another who is having the same type of problems because you expect him or her to pick up your slack.
