MONDAY, JUNE 17, 2013 :: A number of major improvements in your social life are indicated in the year ahead, which will change the way you feel and think about your situation. It could all begin when you make a new friend with connections to an interesting group.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Be prepared to take on a leadership role in a group endeavor. Once you provide the necessary wherewithal to accomplish a goal, everyone will follow.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Don’t be too quick to jump to conclusions, because quick assessments are apt to be faulty. If you take time to check out the facts, you’ll be on much firmer ground.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Do not expect more from friends and family than they have the right to expect from you. And if you think you’ll soon be in need of some help, maybe you should offer some yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Intangibles are likely to confuse you, because you might not be able to grasp what they’re about. Stick to what you can feel and touch, and you’ll fare much better.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Although you’re usually a pragmatic person, today you could be more of a daydreamer. To be on the safe side, rely more on logic than on imagination.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Business conditions can be a bit tricky, but as long as you conduct your affairs in a methodical manner, you should still come out on the profit side of the ledger.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Someone you’re not especially fond of might lead you toward something quite beneficial. Don’t allow emotion or prejudice to interfere with opportunity.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Your future success could be predicated upon how much you ante up. When the stakes are high enough, your drive and motivation will give you the confidence you need to succeed.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Try not to unfairly judge someone you meet for the first time. If given half a chance, this person could be an asset as a friend and as a valuable contact.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be careful, because ego could exert a strong influence on your decision-making processes, which could lead to poor judgment on your part. Take “me” out of the picture.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Your concerns regarding a person vital to your current plans will be put to rest. This person’s behavior will clearly demonstrate his or her steadfast support.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — To achieve something important, you need to rely only on yourself and nobody else. You’ll have greater success without helpers who don’t fully understand what you’re doing.
