Put your shrewd­ness to the test. Im­prove your fi­nances by be­ing re­source­ful and find­ing clever ways to save money. Keep your ears open; you may hear priv­i­leged in­for­ma­tion that you can cash in on.

Make money like it’s 1999. Your shrewd ap­praisal of work-re­lated op­por­tu­ni­ties and in­spired out­look can help you over­come fi­nan­cial in­er­tia. How­ever, avoid dip­ping into sav­ings ac­counts or long-term in­vest­ments.

Make the best of your cur­rent sit­u­a­tion. Don’t pre­tend to live the life­style of the rich and fa­mous. Fam­ily mem­bers or business contacts could en­cour­age you to pur­sue an im­pos­si­ble dream that wastes time and re­sources.

Things look dark­est be­fore the dawn. Don’t make sig­nif­i­cant changes or al­ter­ations in your life. Even the most solid re­la­tion­ships can fall prey to tem­po­rary mis­giv­ings or doubts for a day or two.

Treat your ca­sual com­pan­ions like best friends and you won’t go wrong. You will be bet­ter off frankly shar­ing your ob­jec­tives and mak­ing ev­ery­thing clear. You may be sur­prised by the level of sup­port you re­ceive.

Put the proper spin on the pos­i­tive. Doubt is an en­emy that will erode con­fi­dence. If you be­lieve that you will suc­ceed no mat­ter what, it will hap­pen. When faced with tough de­ci­sions, go with your first in­stinct.

It is said that bad news travels fast, but in­ac­cu­rate news of­ten travels faster. Side­step the gray ar­eas and steer clear of the drama queens who spread gos­sip. Fo­cus on do­ing what needs to be done and do it well. Your aba­cus may be short a few beads, so things might not add up. On the other hand, part­ners and com­pan­ions might have a valu­able, ex­tra­or­di­nary vi­sion of the fu­ture. Watch your money and lis­ten to ad­vis­ers.

You could end up in heart­break city if you give in to pity. Stand up straight and strong and own up to your mis­takes as well as your suc­cesses. Think through your plans be­fore you put them into ac­tion.

The rains in Spain fall mainly in the plain. Be sure to enun­ci­ate clearly and make your mean­ing clear as a bell. There may be some con­fu­sion in your im­me­di­ate en­vi­ron­ment that dis­tracts you from a task.

Don’t strike un­less the iron is siz­zling hot. You may have the en­ergy and will­ing­ness to con­quer the world, but what­ever you be­gin now could be un­der­cut by a lack of care­ful and ad­e­quate prepa­ra­tion.

Be­ing vague earns no brownie points. If some­one’s pre­sen­ta­tion leaves you with more ques­tions than an­swers, you may take your business else­where. Don’t sign agree­ments or con­tracts un­less facts are clear. Make the most of smooth sail­ing be­tween now and the end of the month. This is a de­light­ful time to make or ex­e­cute plans be­cause your judg­ment is in tip-top shape and you have good ad­vice and sup­port at your fin­ger­tips. Oth­ers may tag you as the leader or rec­og­nize your tal­ents. Al­though you are op­ti­mistic and high-minded, you are still able and will­ing to shoul­der re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. In Fe­bru­ary and March your abil­ity to be busi­nesslike and com­pas­sion­ate at the same time can give your rep­u­ta­tion and business as­pi­ra­tions a boost. Put your am­bi­tions on hold in May, when hard work rather than spec­u­la­tion is re­quired.
