    Your hopes and wishes have excellent chances of fulfillment in the year ahead, but they will not come about as you envision. The winds of chance will blow their own way, so be flexible enough to ride their route.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Be particularly mindful of your behavior right now, especially concerning your social graces when around those who are important to you. Don't do anything that could mar your reputation.  
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Generally, you are the type of person who doesn't blindly trust those about whom you know little, but today a sly individual will cause you to ignore the facts and make a poor judgment call.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If you've got it, spend it; but if you do so with the hope of having the funds you need when the bills come due, you will be asking for a very unhappy ending to reckless thinking.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — It is good to be expectant, but don't go so far as to misinterpret someone's pat on the back or offer of encouragement as a bona-fide promise. Wishful thinking will put you in hot water.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) — In order to show allegiance to pals, you will place your faith in the wrong individual and, as a result, suffer the consequences. However, it will not happen if you recognize the shortcomings of friends.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Just because a friend has been exceptionally generous to you does not give you license to cross the line and abuse this person's kindheartedness. Don't do anything that smacks of being a user.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — You will lose the respect of your associates if you make large promises or commitments but then fail to live up to them. Once you give your word, stand by it.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) — If you are having any work or service performed for you, do spot checks from time to time to make certain the job is being done to your specifications. It will save you lots of aggravation.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — This is not a good time to take gambles on anything that would hurt you or others physically, financially or socially. Lady Luck will not be around when you need her the most.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Others generally judge us by the company we keep, so steer clear of persons who have a habit of conducting themselves in questionable ways. There is no way you will not be tarred by their brush.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — If you place more value on a sensitive issue than it is really worth, your position will be seen as self-serving. Don't give others reasons to doubt your sincerity.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You will need to be far more prudent when it comes to managing your resources, both in ways that cause you to be extravagant and allow others to take advantage of your generosity.
