    Owing to favorable outside influences, situations that you were unable to control in the past look to be more manageable in the year ahead. You'll now be able to put some of your aggressive plans into action.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) It might take a bit of bravery to support an unpopular position, but if you think you have some loyal allies who believe in you, go for it. Chances are you'll win.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your success will be predicated upon the intensity of your desire. If you are strongly motivated to get what you want, you will find a way to get around what has been holding you back.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) A problem that you haven't been able to resolve should be openly and frankly discussed in order to get to the bottom of things. Don't hesitate to talk to those you trust.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) By having the courage to make the necessary changes that still operate along traditional lines, you can turn things around in your commercial or financial affairs. Do so now.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Continue to be as philosophical as possible in your most serious affairs. Even if the rails are a bit weak, you can keep things on an even keel and travel on the road to fulfillment.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Someone who thinks of you in friendly terms has much more clout and influence than you may realize. This person may do something on your behalf just because he or she can.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) A partnership arrangement will work out well for you as long as everyone continues to operate on the same wavelength. Do your part to hold up your end.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Be friendly to all, but deal directly with those who can give your career a boost, because it'll be those people who can do the most good for you. Don't waste time on slackers.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) If you sense conditions are right, take that well-calculated risk that you believe will advance something important. You'll know if the timing is right.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) By partnering with those who are striving for the same goal, the possibilities are excellent that you'll gain strength in numbers and accomplish what you couldn't do alone. All can benefit.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your best asset is the ability to introduce lightness into a heavy topic that is becoming far too serious. By relaxing, those involved will get to the bottom of things sooner.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you suspect more can be done, don't accept a lesser outcome if your projections aren't living up to your expectations. Make those constructive changes you believe will work better.
