AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Look for verification before accepting the word of someone who may be a nice person but about whom you’re unsure of his or her judgment. It’s smart to be dubious.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You can usually handle several assignments simultaneously, but whether you can do so at this time depends on how complicated each one is. Check it out before taking on something overwhelming.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — You certainly don’t lack any resolve to get things done; your problem is that you have a tendency to treat frivolous matters seriously while treating important matters indifferently. Reverse this procedure.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — In order for friends or associates to treat your ambitious objectives with the same importance as you do, some kind of stake needs to be available to them. Motivation is the key.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Be prepared to defend the position you take with knowledge and know-how — or else keep quiet. You will be challenged, rising or falling on your facts and data.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Although you may work hard, financial or commercial dealings might not be your long suit. Leave these kinds of negotiations to another day and another time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Someone who believes he or she has the advice or information you’re seeking may offer it to you. However, if you’re not open-minded enough to verify this person’s data, you may end up with misinformation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Normally, you’re a considerate person; however, you may withhold help to someone who clearly needs some assistance merely because the idea wasn’t yours. Don’t be so impenetrable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — You’re willing to work hard for what you want, yet when it comes to resolving issues, you may depend on wishful thinking to do that kind of job for you. Work things out yourself.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — If you don’t get bored, keep on working and don’t disrupt the flow of events, and everything should work out quite well. Should you become disruptive, well, that’s another story.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — You’re a person who loves life and wants to believe all the good you hear about people and things. However, if someone tells you something astounding, insist on verification.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Meaningful information might come from someone you can trust. Yet, sadly, he or she might have gotten the info from an untrustworthy person.
