In the year ahead, those with whom you associate will have a major influence over various departments of your life, so it behooves you to be selective about your companions. Pick winners who are going places.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You are very capable of making a profit, but only through gains that you devise independently, not through the good auspices of others. Rely only upon yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Stick to activities where you can take the lead and personally manage, rather than going along with someone else's pet project. You won't like playing second fiddle.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If you have a complicated problem to resolve, remember that in quiet places reason abounds, so seek an environment that is free from outside influences.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Being around fun people will be important to you, so select companions who are always optimistic and outgoing. Avoid those who carry the weight of the world on their shoulders.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) From time to time, a good challenge can get your juices flowing, and this may be one of those moments. You'll come alive when someone lays down the gauntlet.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) You're wise to be concerned about far-reaching matters by planning ahead and not worrying about momentary concerns. You innately know that long-range reverberations are of equal significance.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Change should be anticipated at any given moment because everything is constantly transforming itself, so it doesn't make sense to think things will never alter. Be ready to adjust to shifts in conditions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Because you can get so intensely involved with your work, you don't take kindly to being interrupted, which is what is likely to happen. Be prepared for disruptions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Two factors that keep the wheels of friendship rolling are gratitude and reciprocity, so should someone ask for a bit of assistance, be ready to pitch in.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your biggest fault is that you get too protective and possessive with those in your charge. Such could be the case at this time. Be nurturing, not smothering.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Persons in your charge are fortunate, indeed. You'll give them plenty of space to do their own thing, but be ready to pounce should someone try to take advantage of them.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Even though you are discerning and can improve your ideas when called for, you may be a bit offended if someone makes a constructive revision.
