If you are smart and conservative and ready to take advantage of opportunities, you will end up in a very good position with lots to look forward to as the year progresses.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Money is heading your way from an unexpected and unusual source. Your help will be recognized and rewarded by someone from whom you have been trying to earn respect. Don’t be aggressive, just proactive.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’ll be pulled between work and personal responsibilities. Organize your time well and no one, including you, will be disappointed in your performance. A tempting partnership will get you thinking about future possibilities.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You need to expand your knowledge and skills by attending courses or spending time with someone who can show you what to do. Don’t let a love problem cloud your vision or stand in the way of your advancement.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t be fooled by an offer someone makes. If the venture will cost you, consider going it alone or backing out completely. Love is looking good and the possibility of mixing business with pleasure should turn into a rare event.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be careful not to take on too much professionally or educationally. You will disappoint someone you love if you don’t have time for him or her. A change will be as good as a rest so try new things or go to new places.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Someone is likely to give you false information. Focus more on love and finding common ground with whoever you spend the most time with. If you are on the same page, you can fight whatever battles you face together.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t be too sure that things will pan out the way someone has suggested. Last minute changes may leave you in a bind. Turn on the charm and use past experience to alter the course of the changes being made.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A career change may be offered that gets you thinking. However, once you weigh the pros and cons, you may want to renegotiate before you proceed. A good friend or lover will point out some very interesting underlying clauses.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don’t get overly emotional or let anyone back you into a corner or an argument. Stay calm and handle whatever comes your way with class, dignity and restraint. Get all the facts; emotional deception is apparent.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): As long as you don’t trust anyone with your money you will survive. Settlements, legalities and investments will all be subject to deception and poor management. Stay in the loop at all times if you want things to turn out in your favor.
