    Don't judge the year ahead by negative occurrences of the past, especially where your social life is concerned. There is a strong possibility that several casual acquaintances you make will grow into enviable friendships.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Although you are a fast thinker, it isn't likely to do you much good. The situation that is placed in your hands needs careful, sound and thorough consideration if you have any hope of bringing order out of chaos.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) The probabilities for engineering gain out of something that is totally floundering are strong. Both your ingenious thinking and quiet resourcefulness will turn confusion into order.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Others might find it necessary to try to keep up with the Joneses, but you'll show them that pretenses aren't necessary. Stellar behavior is what makes you equal to those in high places.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although you might begin your day thinking no one cares about you, something very nice will develop that'll show how wrong you are — and how much everyone is on your side.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You're a charmer, and even those who are down in the mouth about everyone will be impressed by your charisma. You will make them smother all of the ill feelings they have been harboring.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) By quietly removing the obstacles that have been blocking your path, someone will orchestrate an unexpected opportunity. There will be no fanfare, only possibility.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Although you may not be aware of the impact of your words, you have the faculty to uplift the downtrodden. When you see people discouraged and spiritless, what you say can make a difference.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Gaining approval or understanding from everyone is not in the cards, but when it comes to those who mean the most to you, it is certainly possible to achieve. Do your best, and the rest will follow.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) When conversing with someone you respect, be an attentive listener, especially to the small details. A gem is hidden in his or her recital that you could easily miss if you're not hanging on every word.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) It'll take more than someone who opposes you to block your path to victory. When confronted with challenges, you will patiently figure out how to get past the obstacles.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) One of your better assets is bringing order out of chaos, which you could accomplish in two separate but related situations. Your patient handling of these problems will turn things around.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) Something that desperately needs a strong but careful hand will be placed in your capable control. It might not be easy, owing to an outside influence, but you'll find a way.
