    Conditions will remain stable in the year ahead, provided you don't become involved in situations that are beyond your capabilities or sphere of influence. Stick to doing what you do best.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If you waffle or buckle under at the first sign of trouble, you won't be able to use the necessary assertiveness required to avert a problem or take advantage of an opportunity at hand. Stay strong.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If you offer to help another, don't do so with a lot of strings attached. It will only make the recipient feel hostile toward you, and you could even end up losing a friend.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Playing politics is always a dangerous game, especially when it involves a social or work-related situation. You'll get a lot further handling things aboveboard; don't be manipulative.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Wishful thinking may help you establish goals, but it won't gain anything until it is accompanied by a realistic plan of action and assertiveness. Only then can your dreams come true.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Take care that some hot information you possess is used constructively, not destructively. If you decide to use it as a weapon, you could start an un-winnable war.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Believing that the world owes you a free ride won't furnish the transportation you need to the reach your dreams. You're going to have to work for each and every desire — the same as everyone else.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Be careful that an interloper doesn't try to use you to support a position that would oppose a family member. Your loved one would be deeply wounded in the process.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Usually you're a responsible person willing to do much for others, but you might try to get someone to do a dirty job that you feel is beneath you. It's not like you to be a user, so don't start now.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) No matter how juicy the gossip, forgo temptations to spread it further, especially if it involves a close friend. The sooner it is shut down, the less damage it will do.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) If you find yourself having suspicions about another, keep it under wraps until you have the real facts at hand. You could read more into someone's intentions than actually exist.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Chances are you'll be a harsher critic of yourself than others will be, which will stop you from seeing all the good points you have to offer. Don't be your own worst enemy.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) Financial matters should not be treated indifferently, whether they are good or bad. Acknowledge the facts and you will be able to take advantage of the good and make any necessary corrections.
