Clearly something has changed - it's just a case of working out what.
My main suspicion would be of permissions on your ~/.ssh directory, or
the files therein.
Try invoking ssh with the -v option - that might provide you with useful
extra information. Similarly, check /var/log/auth.log on the target
machine to see if it tells you anything.
