---- — Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — When it comes to competitive situations, the secret to success is to be more dedicated than your competitors. You understand that hard work generates good luck.

Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) — We can always learn something of value from others, if we keep our minds open. You can gain some extremely valuable information from a very unexpected source.

Aries (March 21-April 19) — A number of great opportunities will develop through your own efforts and those of others. Don’t be concerned over who authors what.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) — If you are putting together a social agenda that involves new people, you might still want to include a friend of long standing. She or he could be helpful to your cause.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) — You’re apt to be far better at handling certain challenges than your peers, so don’t hesitate to step forward and take the reins if you see others fumbling.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Should an opportunity arise, take the time to help a friend who is always critical of others to see the good in people. It can’t hurt to try.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — You might have to deal with some changes that are being initiated by external forces. Don’t be too quick to get upset — instead, use your smarts to find a way to offset them.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — An alliance that you establish with an older or more experienced person is likely to work out quite well for both of you. He or she has the know-how, while you have fresh ideas.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — It’ll benefit you to devote most of your time and energy to situations that could pay off well. The gains involved could be larger than usual.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — You could be much more effective participating in a leadership role than you would doing the grunt work. If you see everyone floundering, step out of the pack and offer some direction.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Things have a way of working out to everyone’s advantage at present, so don’t get disturbed over early, unpromising indicators. It’s the final results that count.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Although some of your companions might overlook advantages that can be gained from unfamiliar sources, you won’t. Your analytical powers will be hard at work.
