YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY — Before entering into any type of partnership arrangement in the approaching year, know the different types that can exist. A strong, learned association could be an asset, while a fun but weak alliance may serve only to drain your assets.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you fail to think for yourself, you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be someone who steps up and thinks for you. Unfortunately, you may not like the results.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Actions, not words, are what impress others, so all the talk in the world won’t cut the mustard. Unless you are prepared to back up what you say, you may be viewed as just another blowhard.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Generally, you’re a reasonable person who looks before leaping. If you let your guard down, however, you might throw caution to the wind and gamble on what you shouldn’t.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Important decisions need to be shared and resolved by both you and your mate. Each might see things differently and misinterpret what the other is thinking.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Unless you are a verifiable expert, you should not attempt to interpret and/or explain instructions on how to do something dangerous. If it misfires, you would be held accountable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Adopting too indifferent of an attitude about your resources could create severe problems for you down the line, and cause you to wonder why your funds ran out.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Common sense and logical thinking will work for you in ways that your rabbit’s foot or four-leaf clover won’t. Be sensible about how far you can go in pushing your luck.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -— It’s always important to see things as they are and not as you want them to be. Know the difference between optimism and pure wishful thinking that can lead you astray.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Enjoy yourself in ways that won’t decimate your wallet. In fact, expensive activities are likely to provide the least amount of enjoyment for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Although there is likely to be an abundance of opportunities for you to partake in, you aren’t likely to find the enjoyment in them that you normally would. Do something simple, and refresh your worldview.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Just because you got away with something in the past doesn’t mean you will get to do so again. Besides, you should make a concerted effort not to repeat a major mistake.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Avoid going out with friends who have plenty of discretionary funds to spend that you don’t. It could be embarrassing for you if you can’t keep up with them and need to leave early.
