ARIES (March 21-April 19). Take your good-to-go attitude into the New Year with you. And if there's one thing you can leave back in 2007, it's your need to prove a point. You know when you're right, and that should be enough.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Take your work ethic into the New Year. You stay until the job is done - it's a matter of pride, and it's a matter of dignity. That said, if there's one thing to leave in the past, it's your tendency to settle for too low a wage.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Take your bright, intellectual style with you into the New Year.

You're full of ideas, and many of them will catch on. Leave in the past your tendency to over-think things.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Take your instinct about what is truly valuable with you into the New Year. And what you can leave back in 2007 is your fear that you are unworthy of it. Repeat: "I am worthy of the things I desire."

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Take your need for attention into the future. It perfectly matches other people's need to be amused. But if there's one thing you can leave back in 2007, it's low confidence. You're a star! Believe it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Take your perfectionism into the future because your high standards are what keep your life going toward your dreams. If there's something you can leave in the past, it's your need to micromanage.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Take your lovely sense of diplomacy into the New Year. But leave your need to make it right for everyone. Sometimes, compromise just cheapens things for everyone involved.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Take your sense of mystery into 2008. It attracts people to you and in many cases makes you downright irresistible to them. Leave your tendency not to ask for the help you need back in 2007.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take your adventurous spirit into 2008. You are even more daring and ready to embrace whatever unfolds before you. Leave unresolved business in the past. Figure out a resolution quickly.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Take your inner drive and ambitious dreams into the future. As you do, leave behind your doubts about what is reasonable. Your aims have nothing to do with being reasonable, and that's why you'll achieve them.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You accept people who are very different from you. It's a lovely habit and a quality you should definitely take into the New Year. Leave behind your need to please others.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Take your spiritual quest into the future. The best thing you can do for the cause of world peace is to create peace in your own life. Leave behind your need to control the uncontrollable. Surrender.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Dec. 31). New Year's baby, this year, you're definitely coming from a heart space that people relate and warm to. Improvements in your health and fitness make you feel amorous. In June, one special person helps you to heal past hurts and helps your confidence blossom. March brings a stellar purchase. Cancer and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 19, 2, 44 and 29.
