    A new you could be emerging in the year ahead who will be a pretty tough cookie, making it possible to receive rewards and recognition in some of the same areas you were previously taken for granted.
    LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Although conditions in general are quite favorable, the best possibilities for making a big splash is through commercial and financial involvements. Spend quality time in these venues.
    VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) View life earnestly, but don't take matters or events so seriously that you lose your sense of humor. A good balance between the two will hold you in good stead for achieving success.
    LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Even if you go out of your way to do someone a favor, don't make it such a big deal that the person ends up feeling he or she is obligated to you in some manner. Let it be known there are no strings attached.
    SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) A friend who is presently on the outs with your peer group needs some reassurance that he or she isn't standing alone. Let your pal know that you're not taking sides.
    SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Although you may not realize it, you have greater internal fortitude than you believe. Should you feel threatened or challenged, your backbone will stiffen in order to make a strong stance.
    CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Usually it isn't wise to offer unsolicited advice, but if you believe a close friend could profit from one of your past experiences, share the lessons you've learned.
    AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If an arrangement is having a negative effect upon your finances and/or reputation, don't hesitate to make the necessary changes. Protect your interests first and foremost.
    PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) The probabilities for achieving success will be considerably heightened because you're not afraid to handle difficult situations, even if they are personally distasteful.
    ARIES (March 21-April 19) Fellow workers will see many good reasons to attune their performances to yours. The efficiency with which you perform your tasks will make them sit up and take notice.
    TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Something you haven't been able to achieve on your own can be accomplished by partnering with a competent ally. Don't hesitate to do so because it will benefit both.
    GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Although an assignment might not be to your liking, you'll step up to the plate and take on whatever is thrown at you. By meeting your duties head-on, they won't seem tough at all.
    CANCER (June 21-July 22) Small amounts have a way of adding up when all is said and done, so be satisfied with multiple small gains instead of trying to make one big killing.
