    Financial conditions look encouraging in the year ahead, but only if you are determined to succeed and willing to do what it takes to generate the returns you want. Nothing will be handed to you on a silver platter.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You possess excellent management skills in handling situations that require a deft touch, yet for reasons known only to you, you might not have the courage to use them in all cases. Don't let yourself down.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Remember it is always difficult to please everyone, so if someone requires more pats on the back, don't take it as a failure on your part. This person simply needs more coddling than others.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Sincerity is essential if you want to make a good impression on others, so forgo using flattery as a tool. But don't use the blunt truth, either. Chances are either extreme will prove to be counterproductive.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) Take measures to trim as much nonessential spending from your budget as possible; once you do, you will find your financial position greatly improved, and it will provide the peace of mind you are seeking.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Although you have what it takes to do quite well in competitive situations, you need to remember to do so with grace and humility. You don't want to make enemies out of the losers.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) If you want to obtain the best outcome, limit your proposals and presentations to just the facts. Sugarcoating things makes it appear as if you have something to hide, and emotions could make you look weak.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) Forming a commercial involvement with friends is acceptable, but keep in mind that the relationship could suffer if the matter is mismanaged or ends up on shaky ground. It is always a chancy situation.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) There are wonderful opportunities for personal gain at this moment, but once you experience success, there could be a tendency to take some kind of foolish risk. Invest your funds and time only in feasible situations.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Operate on your own as much as possible, because objectives that are significant to you can meet with a total indifference by your associates. These cohorts may lack your vision and your sense of adventure.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You may find it necessary to take measures to alter or change those conditions in your life that are retarding your progress. Keep in mind that although it may be difficult, it is doable and the right thing to do.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) For good or for ill, you tend to reflect the behavior patterns of your peers. Instead, if you know that your personality is stronger than your companions, step forward and be the one who determines the mode of operation.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Observers will admire your confidence and capabilities in regards to the manner in which you handle tough situations, so there is no need to toot your own horn. They will be singing your praises for you.
