    It won't be simply chance that plays an important role in your material affairs in the year ahead; it'll be sheer hard work and planning on your part. You can substantially profit from the careful development of your affairs.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — Should an acquaintance or friend display some crass traits, don't let this person get under your skin. Keep your cool and counter by overwhelming him or her with class, dignity and polish.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Don't be reluctant to ask someone you have helped in the past to intercede on something you're unable to do on your own. If he or she reneges, this person will show his or her true colors.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Even if someone's faults are glowingly apparent, it can serve to add luster to your image by ignoring his or her shortcomings instead of attempting to mend this person's ways.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — If colleagues or friends begin talking disparagingly about a mutual acquaintance who is not present, be deliberate in changing the subject and make them aware of their pettiness.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) - Your careful plans may be subjected to revisions through no fault of your own. Take it in stride and keep in mind your capability of mastering the political winds.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Anticipating what might occur could help you circumvent abrasive developments, so don't hesitate to use a "secret weapon": your uncanny faculty for spotting potential problems.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) — In your business dealings, it will be important to pay attention to even the smallest detail, or you could turn something good into a major problem. Be on your toes.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don't let a first impression influence your opinion about someone. Whether that impression is negative or positive, treat those two imposters exactly the same and give it time.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Instead of dragging your feet, get started with your chores or duties. That which you leave waiting to do later might never get done, causing one big headache.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Should an insecure friend come to you for advice, be sure to paint a positive, rosy picture for this person and not merely commiserate with him or her; otherwise, you'll both end up blue.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — A bit of spirited shopping might be in order if you are in need of a luxury item for the home. Bargain hunting for merely a low price will yield an inferior product. Find a compromise.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — When conversing with a sensitive friend, take care not to be blunt and/or crude in your choice of words. Offer encouragement instead of criticism, and say what you would want to hear.
