HOROSCOPE BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL

There is a good chance that in the year ahead you will develop a mutually beneficial alliance with someone who initially rubs you the wrong way. Once you get past this abrasive stage, a genuine friendship will blossom. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Be extremely tactful with all your one-onone relationships, especially those that feature a comfortable rapport. You could unintentionally say something way out of line. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Some big responsibilities or critical tasks you’ve been successfully sweeping under the rug could come up for air. Once they’re out, they could get nasty. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Someone you know only casually could make a play for your friends. Sharing friendships is one thing, but crossing you out of the picture is another. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — You have exceptional leadership qualities, but don’t become too self-serving. Victory will be far more gratifying if you include everyone involved. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — You naturally wouldn’t like it if someone put you in a position to have to defend everything you say. Bear this in mind should a friend make a statement that you disagree with. ARIES (March 21-April 19) — Although you’re in a favorable cycle for joint

endeavors, there could be a few conditions attached. Any colleague you have must be able to offer as much as you can. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — When it comes to a matter of mutual concern in which you and another are diametrically opposed, a compromise is required. Be the first to propose a solution that both parties can accept. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — A weightier problem than you originally anticipated may fall to you. If someone for whom you’re responsible fails to take care of something, it’ll be left to you to do the job. CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Even though you’re likely to be a welcome addition to a social gathering, don’t be the last to leave. Head for the door before your host or hostess starts to yawn. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — You’ll have to be methodical, bold and organized if you hope to achieve any kind of important objective. If you don’t endow yourself with these qualities, it isn’t likely you’ll succeed. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Avoid the company of friends or associates who have a tendency to impose their views on others. Your tolerance for self-appointed know-it-alls is slightly above zero. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Take extra pains to manage your resources as prudently as possible. Later, when it becomes time to pay off these obligations, they could hinder you at just the wrong moment.
