    In the year ahead, there's a great possibility that you will be invited to participate in something engineered by a competent friend. Although friendship will bring you into the arrangement, you'll do a good job.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) The possibilities for material gain are there, but not because of any kind of luck. You are going to have to make a worthy contribution if you hope to be reasonably compensated.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You can be both a doer and a talker and still chalk up major accomplishments. However, it stands to reason that if you are more industrious and less vocal, you will get more done.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although you won't have any trouble recognizing the opportunities at your disposal and what they could mean, you're apt to fall short on exploiting them to maximum advantage.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Be prepared to make concessions if you hope to work out an important agreement with someone. If you don't, both parties will do OK independently, but neither side will get what it really wants.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Something propitious could work out with regard to your career, leading to advancement or increased earnings. However, unless you handle it properly, it won't happen.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You will be far more popular with your peers — especially members of the opposite gender — if you use your charm and humor to make your points. Logic is good, but a bit cold.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Guard against being excessive in all that you do. In some instances, you'll be generous to a fault, while in other cases you'll have trouble opening your wallet. Find the middle ground.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) When you take the time to study situations, your judgment will be quite good. The trouble is that for reasons known only to you, you might not act on what you know to be best.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Only boldness and assertiveness on your part can fulfill your material aspirations, so if you want something badly enough, be prepared to go after it. All the wishful thinking in the world won't get it done.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Everyone, including you, will have a much more enjoyable time socializing with a cozy, comfortable group. If you're the one doing the entertaining, keep the number of friends to a minimum.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) Even though this should be a nice day to spend quality time with your family, it still might not live up to your expectations. If you have unreasonable aspirations, you'll invite disappointment.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Be careful not to let a companion or associate do your thinking with regard to a matter about which you are better informed. If you can't think for yourself, the results will be unhappy.
