    When it comes to important involvements in the year ahead, partnerships will be more of a hindrance than a help. Unless an associate can make a major contribution or serve a mutual worthwhile purpose, forgo getting involved.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Instead of allowing an associate to make an important decision for you, take the time to sort things out for yourself. Chances are your conclusions and those of the other person's will be poles apart.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) This is one of those times when you could make complications for yourself by thoughtlessly going about your business. Be sure to take extra care not to tread on anybody's toes — especially your own.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) All people, both friends and strangers, will respond better to consultation than they would confrontation. So when dealing with others, ask for suggestions instead of taking it upon yourself to run the show.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Abuse of power is apt to turn reasonable people into enemies real fast who are not likely to forgive and forget. When you are placed in an authority role, use your power sparingly and wisely.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you fail to appreciate the opinions of others, they will treat you in a like fashion. Don't come on as a know-it-all. Instead, ask those you're dealing with for their input. Respect begets respect.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Be extra careful in business negotiations because if you get off on the wrong foot, it will be difficult to regain your position. What could have been a good deal will turn sour.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It is important to be flexible and open-minded in all of your one-on-one relationships. If you are too rigid, you will hit a wall when encountering someone who is more iron-willed than you are.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Whether you realize it or not, you will come under the critical eye of someone in authority. Should this person think you're not active enough, extra work could be assigned to make certain you're busy.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Think twice before goading friends into doing something that you find too distasteful to do yourself. Once they find out why you asked this of them, resentment and rejection will set in.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Running too tight a ship within your sphere of influence will create unnecessary problems and complications for all concerned. Make certain that you temper discipline with a touch of compassion.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Avoid bringing up a subject that you know from past experience agitates a revered friend. Revisiting a painful debate will bring only disdain and agitation.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Should conditions be strained where your financial or commercial affairs are concerned, don't contribute to the malaise by engaging in expensive activities that aren't necessary.
