CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Get hold of your spending early in the day before it can wipe you out. You’ll be proud of yourself later when you realize how much discipline it took, and that you did it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Don’t be the spoilsport who doesn’t want to go along with everyone else’s activities. Don’t be the brat who has to have his or her own way all the time.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Nip in the bud any negative thinking that might permeate your life. If you don’t, it will severely limit your possibilities for realizing happiness. Smile, and the world will smile back at you.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — If you become involved in an inconvenient arrangement with a friend, don’t be too quick to let prevailing conditions influence your actions. With time to think, you’ll both do what’s best.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Be extremely careful to acknowledge those who help you because much larger success can be achieved through the people you recognize and praise.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — If your day starts out of sync, stop and assess your attitude and thinking. Once you get your head working in positive ways, wonderful things will come from out of the blue.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Others might not come through in ways that will make your life easier, but you can do it all by yourself. If you want life to be a bed of roses, you can develop that garden with hope and love.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Don’t be insistent that others participate in things they don’t want to do. People are much happier when they follow the beat of their own drummer.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — You could quickly lose ground concentrating on small details without minding the big picture. Turn that around, and watch how fast success is achieved.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Even though you might be willing to give loved ones everything they want, it could leave them feeling empty. Remember, everyone’s greatest joys come from self-accomplishments.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Early failure is likely to come from sloppy work, so if this happens to you, stop and check your methods. Once everything is in proper working order, all will go well.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Don’t let a slight inconvenience stop you from helping a friend who has always been there for you. If your first instinct is to say no, make yourself say yes.
